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

Q is for Quotes

I love quotes. In fact, quotes inspire, motivate, toughen, challenge and excite me. In my book Mongol I am starting each chapter with a quote. So today I would like to share with you some of my favourite quotes.   “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” – Robert Brault “You make a living by what you earn; you make a life by what you give.” – Winston Churchill ”Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.

Every Easter, the town organises this for children. My husband told me that this old woman stopped and chatted to him and my son. She said ‘They are STILL not doing the Easter hunt, are they?! I remember doing

His careful steps get closer I pretend. ‘Mummy, do you want to open your card?’ he whispers. That’s me. I see my son standing there, smiling Before I say anything, his little feet couldn’t wait longer He ran to his big sister to announce ‘Mummy is awake.’ They walk into the room Their Daddy follows, with their baby sister in his arms And to Mum, the

Mummy, please don’t play that song

‘Mummy, please don’t play that song. It reminds me of my grandma and grandpa in Mongolia.’ said my daughter a few years ago. ‘I miss them.’ she continued. Who would’ve thought she felt the same way as me. I never thought of her missing my parents. I realised I avoided those songs, too. Leaving your parents and loved ones, going to the other side of the world is not easy. I guess everyone has a different reason to go and travel, and settle elsewhere. It was very hard to be in touch with my parents then. No mobile phones or
