The True Lives Of First Generation Kids
I've been wanting to write a card about this for a while because I feel like this is a really unique experience that, at the same time, a lot of people can relate to. My mom was born in the Middle East, raised in Mexico, and moved to New York City when she was a young girl. Because of this, she had a really different way of raising us than maybe the 'normal' American parent would, and I don't think I really understood why I felt so weird and different growing up until I could look back at the whole experience and realize - hey, I'm a first generation. My favorite show on television right now is 'Fresh Off The Boat', a loosely biographical comedy based on the life of celebrity restaurateur Eddie Huang and his childhood as a first generation Taiwanese American. The Huangs might be from Taiwan, but I feel like the things they experience and the way that they handle situations are so reminiscent of anyone who comes from a similar family situation. Inspired by that show, and facets of my own life, I figured I'd put together a list of ABSOLUTELY TRUE (AND TRULY HILARIOUS) experiences first-generation kids deal with when growing up. Granted, many of these are my own experiences and might not be true for all first generation kids. However, I hope you all get a laugh! Your grandparents don't speak English - and taught you all the best insults in the language they DO speak. Okay, maybe Teta (aka 'Grandma') didn't want me to know how to call people sloppy, dumb, and fat in Arabic, but she talked so much Middle Eastern smack that those are some of the only words I know. You never get to eat the cafeteria lunch - just whatever was left over from last night's dinner. There's nothing quite like trying to explain to the other kids at the table what falafel is. (Not many 4th graders have come across it before, and don't realize that they'll be devouring them by the dozen when they become the 'trendy' foreign food 15 years later.) You have so many cousins that family photos require the panorama feature. So you've got your first cousins, your second cousins, your third cousins once removed, the cousin who is a cousin of your other cousin (which also makes you cousins, according to your mom), and the cousins who aren't actually cousins but are so close to your family they're treated just the same. Your mom isn't saying you have to marry someone of the same background, but she isn't NOT saying that. Just like she's not telling you that your wedding ceremony has to be in your family's church/mosque/temple/religious center of choice and that you must give her lots of small, chubby, adorable grandbabies. You have to warn your non-ethnic friends about your family before they show up to a party. Take your shoes off, sample the hummus, and I apologize in advance that no one on my mom's side knows how to pronounce the 't' in 'Courtney'. (You guys, my uncles paid for a bellydancer to show up to our Fathers' Day party one year. I cannot make this up.) You have an uncle that pushes alcohol on everyone even though half of your cousins are still in high school. Here's looking at you, Uncle Alfif. (Or as we say in my family - Alcoholic Al.) And your parents aren't really fans of the fact you never tried learning 'the language'. Why do I need to learn how to speak a language I'm only going to be able to use when I'm talking to old people at family functions? I already learned all the good words from my bilingual cousins anyway. Are you a first generation American kid who has their own stories? Let me know in the comments below!
MAKING FITNESS YOUR TOP PRIORITY DURING “NEW NORMAL”
https://urbantribe.in/collections/all Amidst the life-changing pandemic, we all deeply missed out on our fitness routine. This unforeseen experience led to a substantial decrease in physical activities. When we were confined to our homes, the sudden change of day-to-day schedules gave rise to higher levels of anxiety and stress. Now that we are slowly adapting to the “new normal”, it is time to motivate our inner gym freak with some hard fitness schedule. Gym facilities have already started creating new hygiene rules and workout setups to keep clients and staff safe at their premises. Do not let this minor bump become a hindrance to your routine. Get Fit. Get Sweaty. Get Back to Gym. GEARING UP FOR THE FITNESS REGIME Now that we all are slowly transitioning back to the office after working from home, it is equally essential to find time to hit the gym. Since your ideal day may look completely jam-packed with social and work obligations, you will either try to squeeze your fitness routine during the day or post office hours. Gym bags can become your savior during such times when you require an office cum gym bag that can hold all your equipment. A Backpack for men can be the most comfortable option if you have to walk a long distance to reach your gym. There was a time when a gym bag for men was nothing more than a stuff sack for keeping dirty clothes after you did your workout. Similarly, Gym Bags for women have seen an interesting shift from minimalistic to becoming a style statement. Gym bags are now available in a wide variety of styles, shapes, materials, and formats which can be useful for just about every type of workout. So, it’s time to say goodbye to your old thrift bag! ROLE OF A GOOD GYM BAG A good workout bag plays a major role in making your workouts more efficient and enjoyable. It creates a big deal of difference between an average and exceptional workout session. The best gym bags are not intended to create a daunting experience for you where you have to squeeze all your items together. It is also challenging and cumbersome to carry a separate work and gym bag around all day. An Office Cum Gym Bag for Men will ensure enough space to combine both these two worlds without any damage. While a good gym bag would not really act as a miracle motivator, but it can be very helpful in keeping you on your toes with your exercise program. In fact, buying a bag that’s trendy and effortless might propel you to get that lazy ass off the couch. We suggest you actually take your fitness routine more seriously so that you can show off your gym bag buddy! COMBINING COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY AT ITS BEST A good gym bag is one that perfectly blends comfort with functionality. Surely any backpack can conceal your smelly and sweaty clothes, but the best gym bag will have multiple compartments to fit everything you will need during your regular office day and isolate your dirty sneakers from your laptop. This will help you separate your office space & private space with separate compartments. An office cum gym bag will also gel well with travel junkies who wish to execute the quick weekend getaway, all with one backpack. While making a new purchase, we should remember that a bag with just one zipped closing will be a big no-no. We understand the need of the students as well who move around with their laptops. Hence, our casual bags from Urban Tribe can be used as laptop backpacks also since they come with a separate laptop compartment. When you are juggling between your work and gym time, carrying a separate pair of shoes becomes necessary. Nobody would want their smelly gym shoes to come into contact with a laptop, food, or essential documents. A Gym Bag with Shoe Compartment comes to the rescue to save you from the embarrassment of a foul smell coming from your clean clothes or food items. We all have heard about the saying – “The more, the merrier.” This surely holds true in the case of pockets. Who would not love to have multiple organizing sections that ensure your toiletries do not leak all over other items? We, at Urban Tribe, understand the pain that you feel when you keep on adjusting those uncomfortable and itchy bag shoulder straps. User’s comfort is always on our mind and hence we design a backpack with padded straps to offer you proportionate back support. Our cushioning bag’s straps will ensure that they do not cut into your skin. They can also be adjusted to suit your comfort level. The additional top holder will allow you to carry the bag easily with your hands too. Whether you are traveling on public transport or out to enjoy your dream trip, the safety of your items becomes a primary concern. Moreover, crowded situations or just mere carelessness may put your belongings at great risk. Not to worry! We have crafted Anti-theft Backpack to become your dependable travel buddy wherever you go. The anti-theft pocket in the back panel will keep your wallet, phone, etc safe while traveling in a crowded place. Also, an anti-theft hook will keep the items present in the main compartment safe from pick pocketer. When the internal storage security is kept so high, then how can we forget the exterior of the bag! They are crafted with Polyeuterene-coated fabric which helps the bag remain fully water-resistant. The sturdy construction and rip-proof material make our bags the ideal companion on your fitness journey. When you have to keep so many belongings in one backpack, then the gym bag should be engineered to take all the weight off your shoulders. Our bags have an extremely lightweight construction to not feel like a burden on your shoulders. CONCLUSION So, what are you waiting for? Bring home your workout companion and get back to achieving those pre-pandemic fitness goals that got lost in the way. Choose the office cum gym bag that suits your requirement and speaks your style.

You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
Hadees About Way To Paradise - By Hajj Umrah Tours (Bakhla Tours) Written by (Moeen)
Hazrat Talha bin Ubaidullah (Radiyallahu 'Anhu) narrated : A man from Najd with unkempt hair came to Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) and we heard his loud voice but could not understand what he was saying, till he came near and then we came to know that he was asking about Islam. Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "You have to offer prayers perfectly five times in a day and night (24 hours)." The man asked, "Is there any more (praying) ?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied, "No, but if you want to offer Nawaafil prayers (you can)." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) further said to him, "You have to observe fasts during the month of Ramadaan." The man asked, "Is there any more fasting ?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied, "No, but if you want to observe the Nawaafil fasts (you can)." Then Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) further said to him, "You have to pay the Zakaat (obligatory charity)." The man asked, "Is there anything other than the Zakaat for me to pay ?" Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied, "No, unless you want to give alms on your own." And then that man retreated saying, "By Allah ! | I will neither do less nor more than this." Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "If what he said is true, then he will be successful (i.e. he will be granted Paradise)."

Five Time Prayers - By (Moeen) (Umrah and Hajj Package Tour guide)
Five Times Prayers Hazrat Ubaada Bin as-Saamit (Radiyallahu Anhu) reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) as saying, "Five times of prayer have been prescribed by Allah. If anyone performs the ablution for them well, observes them at their proper time, and perfectly performs the bowing and showing of submissiveness during them, he has a covenant from Allah to forgive him; but if anyone does not do so, he has no covenant. If He wills He may forgive him, but if He wills He may punish him." (Ahmad, Abu Dawood) Hazrat Abu Huraira (Radiyallahu Anhu) reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) as saying, "Tell me, if there were a river at the door of one of you in which he washed five times daily, would any of his filthiness remain ?" When he received the reply that none of it would remain, he said, "That is like the five times of prayer by which Allah obliterates sins." (Bukhari Sharif, Muslim Sharif) Hazrat Abu Huraira (Radiyallahu Anhu) reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) as saying, "The five (daily) prayers, Friday to Friday and Ramadaan to Ramadaan make atonement for what has happened since the previous one when major sins have been avoided." (Muslim Sharif) Hazrat Jaabir (Radiyallahu Anhu) reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) as saying, "What lies between a man and infidelity is the abandonment of prayer." This means that when a man does not make it his practice to observe the prayer he is no longer a Muslim. NOTE: Different Fatwas are given from many different religious scholars.
