Whether its beauty salons, spas, cake and ice-cream parlours, shopping malls or restaurants- there are special arrangements and discounts being offered all over.
Oasis Mall in Al Khuwair has some happening activities for mums and their kids—a large art wall has been dedicated to mothers, where children can come and write sweet texts for their mums. On Mother’s Day, all mums entering the mall from 4pm will get free roses and will also have the opportunity to get photos clicked with their children and get an instant print.
Apart from that, free mini meals will also be given to mothers between 10am to 12pm at the mall, and a host of other activities have also been arranged.
The Kargeen café has arranged a special afternoon high tea to mark the occasion for OMR6 per person from 3pm to 6pm, where you can spend a delightful afternoon with your mother over some mouth watering treats, including finger sandwiches, freshly
baked pastries, desserts and a selection of teas.
Semsom restaurant is also offering a special gift voucher for mothers from March 21 to May 15, where you can buy an OMR10 voucher, which includes a Mother’s Day cake and a menu following that.
Other restaurants and spas around town are also offering fabulous discounts and special arrangements for mums, so if you want to make it a special one for your mother, make sure to take your mum around to one of these places.
While offers and discounts are running across the city, some kids have special messages for their mothers. Syed Bilal, a 10 year-old student of the Indian School Muscat said, “I want to wish my mama a very Happy Mother’s Day, and I pray to God that she is always safe and happy. She has always supported me in all my tasks at school and loves me very much, and I love my mama too.”
Another 14 year-old girl Neha wished her mother and said, “My mother is amazing, she does everything for me and has been such a lovely mother all these years, she never lets me feel low in life and always has given us positive energy, I wish her a very Happy Mother’s Day.”
Amal Al Habsi, a 12 year-old girl wants to go on a world tour with her mother. “This Mother’s Day I make a wish that I want to go on a world tour with the most special person in my life: my mother. She is someone who always deserves the best because she does things without being asked. She is always there for me and showers endless love on me even when I am naughty.”
