BAMBI News October 2016

View PDF   Dear Members, Halloween is here! Trick-or-treating, jack-o’-lanterns, carved pumpkins, corn stalks – this is all quite new to me. Until moving to Bangkok, Halloween was for me just something that was in Hollywood movies and series 🙂 It’s not at all a “thing” in Estonia. So it’s another lovely side of the expat life in Bangkok – being such a melting pot of cultures, there are always new celebrations to discover.  It’s very fun and eye-opening of course, but with all this don’t you feel sometimes lost? How to choose the celebrations for your family? For example, I have noticed that every few months there is a mother’s day for some country. Lebanon in March, Estonia, and France in May, Thailand in August, etc. Each time there is a mother’s day here, I mention it also to my mom and last time she said how lucky I must be in Bangkok to have my motherhood celebrated so many times each year!  But do you know what happens in reality? With all these different options we end up not celebrating anything. I guess as a multi-cultural family it will take us some time to figure out what are our important celebrations each year.  For the moment Halloween has definitely become one of them and I will for the first time in my life try to sew a Halloween costume and it will be for my daughter Lia. What will Lia be dressed as? Come and check it out at the BAMBI Halloween party! 🙂 This year the BAMBI Halloween Party will be definitely an event not to miss! We are taking it to a new level. The party will be held in the ballroom of the Marriott Hotel on Sukhumvit 57, just next to Thong Lo BTS. There will be spooky decorations, trick-or-treating and a lot of other fun activities, gifts, a costume competition with great prizes, etc. etc. And don’t forget that BAMBI parties are also for babies and they will have their own special Halloween crawlers play corner. So book it in your calendars and see you with your small princesses and monsters at Marriott 57, on Saturday October 29th, 9:30am-12 noon! Happy Halloween! Cheers, Tini, Chairwoman   View PDF
