Tai Chi is a form of gentle exercise that is described as meditation in motion. Having originated from China as a form of martial arts, Tai Chi has long been popular among individuals in order to keep fit and prevent disease.
Vivien, Susan and John demonstrated the basic movements for everyone to follow. They went on to demonstrate some martial arts movements and proper breathing techniques.
Ten participants were present at this first session, a good number considering the gloomy weather outside. Overall the class was very successful, both the men and women were keen to learn and participate.
After class, the seniors continued the mindful health theme by sharing a balanced, low calorie, nutritious lunch.
Almost 30 senior members attended, which exceeded expectations.
Community Development Officer June welcomed everyone with a short speech, thanking them for attending and letting everyone know about some very exciting activities coming up.
Everyone was so pleased with the day, the feedback was that the buffet food was amazing, the ambience was great and the members thoroughly enjoyed catching up with good company.
Thanks must go to the restaurant owner Ijaz, who was very kind and hands-on in assisting and serving our group throughout lunch.
Client testimonials prepared for the Muslim Women’s Association of SA Silver Jubilee Celebration for Service Providers, 2019.
A Reception was held in June at Parliament House to mark the end of Ramadan.
Chairperson Dora Abbas and Project Manager Shaista Kalaniya were invited to attend and represent the Muslim Women’s Association of SA.
The Reception was well attended by a diverse array of Muslim community members from different community organisations and places of worship.
MWASA appreciates the opportunity to share this joyous time of year with our friends in Parliament.
The Muslim Women’s Association of SA has been supporting Muslim women in Adelaide for over 25 years. Our team is always looking to adapt, see what is needed and try new things, to give the best services and support to our community that we possibly can. This year, we undertook to try our first ever Evening Eid. Traditionally we would hold a morning tea at our office during the day which some members could not attend due to work. We chose a restaurant as the venue for added convenience, guaranteed delicious food with no cooking or cleaning. The restaurant we settled on was Tangritah Uyghur Restaurant. The new location at 100 Grote Street is spectacular. The restaurant is rather large and the booth seating style allows for a more intimate feel.
Large dishes were delivered to each of our tables to share. Naturally we had to have some of the tasty trademark Uyghur handmade noodles, served with fried chicken and vegetables. This chicken noodle dish was a clear favourite, earning rave reviews across the table and disappearing very quickly! There was salad and rice with lamb. We enjoyed large bowls of another trademark Uyghur dish: Ding Ding – short cut noodles with beef and vegetables in a spicy sauce. Long skewers of lamb kebab were brought out, hot and juicy straight from the grill. Finally, each table was given a jug of sweet, creamy and slightly tangy Ayran.
Our team thanks the Tangritah Uyghur Restaurant family for their hospitality and we look forward to going back again.
We had just over 20 ladies attend. Thankyou for coming out ladies, thankyou for your beautiful company and conversation! Thanks also go to the ladies who provided feedback for the future Working Women’s Program. Your feedback is invaluable as guidance for our planning, to help us deliver the most appropriate services and programs for the community.
We are still accepting feedback for the future Working Women’s Program through the Google Form until Monday 1st of July.
If you didn’t get the chance to provide feedback at the Evening Eid, please feel welcome to provide feedback now.
It only takes about 2 minutes. Feedback is also welcome from women who are looking for work.
