Ramadan Kareem!

We present your essential guide on behaviour during the Holy Month:

Ramadan
DO listen to music on your iPod if you wish. As long as the tunes you're playing are inaudible to others, you won't offend anyone.
DO make the most of the community spirit and food to be found in the iftar and suhour tents at many of the city's larger hotels. Look upon it as an opportunity to relax, play games and experience some traditional Arabic hospitality.
DO get into the charitable spirit during the Holy Month. You don't have to spend the earth – small gestures go a long way. From buying a construction worker some water at sunset to rescuing a kitten, every little helps, and it's a great way to give something back to the community.
DO visit the free iftars at local mosques. They're for everyone, rich or poor, young or old – there is no barrier. They are generally organised by the mosque committee, although neighbours and surrounding residents also bring delicacies such as dates and laban (a yoghurt drink), which they usually share with others.
DO go to pub quizzes during Ramadan . Anything that may distract the mind from its meditative state during fasting hours should be avoided, but bar quizzes that take place after 7pm are perfectly fine.
DO ask fasters how it's going, but bear in mind that it's a religious experience so keep your enquiries short and respectful, and avoid asking them how they are every two hours. You'll only make them hungry!

 DON'T smoke, drink, chew gum or eat in public in the hours between sunrise and sunset. It's offensive, and blatant flouting of the rules could also get you a warning or fine from the police, or even result in you spending the rest of the month in jail.

DON'T dance or sing in public at any time, day or night. Not that you should have many opportunities – there will be no live music gigs during Ramadan , and only background music will be allowed in bars.

DON'T expect to have the kind of blow-out clubbing weekends you're used to. Major nightclubs will be shut, but most bars and pubs will be open in the evenings. While some may open before sundown, they will not serve any alcohol until 7pm.

DON'T play very loud music at any time, whether in your car, on the beach or even at home. If it's audible to others, it may offend.

DON'T wear any revealing or tight clothing in public.

DON'T swear in public. Blasphemy is frowned upon at the best of times, but during the Holy Month it's particularly insulting.

DON'T Drink outside, even if you have been jogging or exercising. The general rule is no drinking, eating, or smoking in public, regardless of whether you think anyone can see you.

Invitatie pentru copii

Stimati parinti si copii,
Dorim sa va invitam la o  mica petrecere dedicata Zilei Internationale a Copilulul.
In acest scop avem sprijinul unor romani talentati care doresc sa va propuna urmatorul program pentru copii:

1. Origami – forme din hârtie – copiii își vor folosi abilitățile în mânuirea hârtiei sau vor învăța cum să  obțină o forma flosind acest material prin pliere și îndoire. Timp: 35 min
2. Pictură – forme marine (scoici, pești, alge, meduze etc.) Copiii vor învăța cum să flosească culorile prin intermediul picturii folosind guașe, tempera sau acuarele. Timp: 35 min
3. Modelaj – animale si vase din lut – copiii vor folosi lut pentru a construi diverse forme: animale, personaje de poveste,  vase. Timp: 35 min
4. Vizionarea unui film pentru copii,  incepând cu ora 19,30 sau 20,00 în funcţie de modul de derulare a primei părţi.

Se vor folosi culori, hârtie, pensule și lut. Sper să le oferim o clipă de bucurie copiilor și să deschidem seria unor activități culturale care să îi atragă prin programele propuse pe cei interesați.
Datorita tematicii programului cat si  capacitatii limitate a consulatului,  invitatia se adreseaza in special copiilor intre intre 5 si 12 ani.
Asadar, va asteptam Joi – 30 Mai la Consulatul Romaniei din Dubai incepand cu ora 18,30
