The Next Big Thing

I’ve been tagged in The Next Big Thing by fellow writer Moira McPartlin. Her first novel, The Incomers, was shortlisted for The Saltire Society First Book of the Year 2012. I read the Incomers and thoroughly enjoyed it. It brought back many memories of me coming to Britain for the first time. When I was tagged I didn’t know what NBT was about. Moira explained that it was a great way to connect with other bloggers and writers. So I thought I’d have a go at it. I’m asked by Moira to tell you all about my next book by

Carnegie’s Call

I’ve been reading a book called ‘Carnegie’s Call’ by Michael Malone. Michael is from our writers’ club and this is his second book. The book is just out. I have to say I was looking forward to this book as I heard that this one was non-fiction and about successful people. I love reading about successful people. I know success is a strange word. It means different things for different people. While reading this book, I felt inspired and motivated to reach my goals and even started doing the exercises in the book. When I was in Mongolia, I knew

The Creative Woman of the Year Award!

Last weekend I went to London, so excited to see the Mongolian singer Jargalsaihan’s concert. Well, ok I admit it I was excited because I was nominated for an award – Woman of the Year 2012 for Mongolians in Europe. This was the awards ceremony in Copthorne Hotel in Kensington I was going to. A few weeks earlier I had received a phone call from David Scott, the Honorary Consul for Mongolia in Scotland. He informed me about the awards ceremony and said he was going to nominate me for an award. I felt honoured. Yes, I was touched that

U is for Ulaanbaatar

Ulaanbaatar (Red hero) is the capital city of Mongolia. In English it is written as Ulan-bator. It is the largest city in Mongolia with over one million (2008) people. In Britain, people seem to know it from mostly pub quizzes and Discovery channels. I went to university in Ulaanbaatar. I was a country bumpkin with long plaits when I started and Ulaanbaatar was this massive city where I struggled to find my ways. This video shows you an idea of where Ulaanbaatar is and what it looks like. Have you heard of Ulaanbaatar? Or have you been to Ulaanbaatar? If
