TICC Holds its Christmas Mini Bazaar at Aulare



The Tianjin International Community Centre has long been one of the most prominent organisations within the city’s expatriate community, and never fails to put on great events for its members. On Thursday 15 November the group held its Mini Christmas Bazaar at Aulare latin restaurant and bar in Aocheng. As always, the event was a resounding success and highlighted the commitment and excellent organisational abilities of its leaders.

At the event members of the TICC took the opportunity to meet and socialise with other members of the city’s expatriate community- whilst also leisurely strolling around the various stalls looking for great Christmas gifts. Stallholders at the event were selling a range of festive treats- including children’s toys, local Chinese art, fine wines and cosmetic products. Attendees were also keen to take advantage of the fantastic Thai massage service. Local companies who attended the event to exhibit their services included Milan Wines and the Spa and Health staff of the city’s new Banyan Tree hotel.

After spending a couple of hours scouring the stalls for presents, the group sat down to enjoy some of Aulare’s finest cuisine. The lunch menu was filled with a superb range of classic latin dishes, specially prepared by the restaurant’s incredibly talented cooking team; Norman, Thomas Liu and Daniel Chen. Starters included Aulare’s spectacular Mediterranean Salad and Mushroom Soup. The 54 special guests were then treated to a range of house specialities, including the Quesadillas, the Empanadas and the delicious Seafood Paella. And despite the offerings so far being so wonderfully tasty, the best was yet to come! Aulare’s fantastic dessert offerings are always guaranteed to satisfy any sweet tooth. TICC members were able to experience the venue’s superb Cream Caramel and Tiramisu. All of these dishes make Aulare one of Tianjin’s best places to eat, drink and relax with friends.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Tianjin International Community Centre, it is a non profit organisation which was established in 1998 as an association and meeting place for foreign residents of Tianjin and their families. Not only does the group provide an excellent social networking platform for Tianjin expatriates, it also offers a great deal of support and a sense of home away from home for its members. The TICC organises a range of events, including monthly coffee mornings, dining occasions and other kinds of social gatherings. This fantastic organisation also holds numerous fundraising events throughout the year which raise money for local and international charities. All of Tianjin’s foreign community are welcome to join the TICC and take part and these exciting events. For more information, visit the group’s website

This year’s Mini Christmas Bazaar was a brilliant way to kick off the festive season, and members of the TICC will be very much looking forward to the upcoming Christmas Ball which will be held at the Westin Hotel on Saturday 8 December. And if any of Tianjin’s expats want to join in the festive fun this year, as always, the more the merrier!
