20130729 First day on air (visually)

Facebook photo by +Gerel Orgil 
Hello people of the internet,

I have been doing a real-time translation of First-Up with Susan Li every weekday since April 1st (yeah, yeah, the April Fool's day - it felt like a joke to me too). So my voice has been on air for almost 4 months. But today, I appeared on air during a rundown for the first time in my life. It was twice for about a minute and a half each time. I won't hide the fact that I was pretty nervous/excited about the arrangement.

Until next time,
Anu

WORLD WAR Z by Marc Forster | Watch Log

Hello people of the internet,

So the other day I went to see the zombie film with Brad Pitt - WORLD WAR Z. I haven't read the books or read/watched any review on the film when I went to the threatre to watch it. It was pretty cool. Here is what I thought of the film.

Until next time,
Anu

P.S. Going to a zombie film alone is not that funny when you want to laugh at the zombies alone.


Moo.com Cards

Hello people of the internet,

There is this cute site where you can order pre-designed or custom designed business cards with quality-dripping-matte and glossy finish. MOO.com is a UK based company that offers these cute cards.

In my case, I ordered a batch of 100 mini-cards and a white, plastic mini-card holder, which can hold up to 12 cards at a time, from Moo.com. I filled up my case with a bunch of cards and can not wait to carry them with me (what a nerd).

Until next time,

P.S. The packaging is pretty cool, isn't it?

20130720 A Hike to Tsetsee Gun | Video Log

Hello people of the internet,

I went on a hike with my friends to the Tsetsee Gun on Saturday for a change. It was a good hike and doing it every other day would be great.

Here is a video to commemorate that day. Also I found my company to go to Play Time 2013. The hiking group is going to the festival together.

Until next time,
Anu

SPUTNIK SWEETHEART by Haruki Murakami | Read Log

Photo by of the book cover in discussion on my Kindle.
The green scarf makes the pic a bit gloomy, sorry about that.
Hello people of the internet,

I am slowly easing back into making videos, what would be better than doing a rant on the latest Haruki Murakami novel - Sputnik Sweetheart.

Enjoy,
Anu Harchu

Author: Haruki Murakami 
Title: Sputnik Sweetheart 
Description: From Publishers Weekly
Murakami's seventh novel to be translated into English is a short, enigmatic chronicle of unrequited desire involving three acquaintances the narrator, a 24-year-old Tokyo schoolteacher; his friend Sumire, an erratic, dreamy writer who idolizes Jack Kerouac; and Miu, a beautiful married businesswoman with a secret in her past so harrowing it has turned her hair snowy white. When Sumire abandons her writing for life as an assistant to Miu and later disappears while the two are vacationing on a Greek island, the narrator/teacher travels across the world to help find her. Once on the island, he discovers Sumire has written two stories: one explaining the extent of her longing for Miu; the second revealing the secret from Miu's past that bleached her hair and prevents her from getting close to anyone.
 
All of the characters suffer from bouts of existential despair, and in the end, back in Tokyo, having lost both of his potential saviors and deciding to end a loveless affair with a student's mother, the narrator laments his loneliness. Though the story is almost stark in its simplicity more like Murakami's romantic Norwegian Wood than his surreal Wind-Up Bird Chronicles the careful intimacy of the protagonists' conversation and their tightly controlled passion for each other make this slim book worthwhile. Like a Zen koan, Murakami's tale of the search for human connection asks only questions, offers no answers and must be meditated upon to provide meaning. (Apr. 30)Forecast: Long the secret delight of connoisseurs, Murakami has been steadily and quietly acquiring a wider readership. His latest offering breaks no new ground but is packaged in a striking manner and should attract a few newcomers.

PlayTime Music Festival 2013 | Upcoming Event

PlayTime Music Festival 2012 Day One
August 4th
with Nomin Enkh-Amgalan
Hello people of the internet,

You might as well have already heard of it, but I am gonna say it anyway. This year's PlayTime Music Festival is in 2 weeks. The website is up, the line-up is up, the location is set (well, we all knew where is was going to be) and the tickets will start to be sold at HiFi stores tomorrow.

They have 2-day-single-ticket, 2nd-day-single-ticket and packet tickets for 5 or 10 this year. (If I am not mistaken, they only had packet ticket for 5 last year) And I hear they are going to offer tickets with special deals soon. The prices doubled since last year, but I don't think many people are complaining about it.

So, are we going?

Until next time,
Anu

20130709 Like A Sir

The decal sticker is from eBay.
You can purchase it here.
Hello people of the internet,

A decal sticker that I was waiting finally came and my laptop looks like a Sir now. How cool/cute is that? Just like my red laptop had a "Nirvana" sticker, my silver laptop has a "Moustache" decal.

I am pretty sure that there might not be a lot of responses to this question, but I am gonna ask it anyway. What my next video should be? a) Vlog for the Naadam festival or b) Lipsticks video (beauty video - pretty new thing, I am sure there won't be many).

Until next time,
Anu Harchu

20130707 Gerel's Birthday

Hello people of the internet,

It's July 7th, 2013 and it's my dear sis Gerel's birthday. So, Happy Birthday, Gerel!!! I wish you all the best and thank you for inviting me to your birthday party.

I would say it's the perfect temperature for me today. Cloudy with a chance of rain and +20 degrees high, I get to layer clothes and not get sweaty. I can read all day at a coffee shop, because it's Sunday. Have a great Sunday and I'll see you with a video next time.

Until then,
Anu Harchu

20130701 The Reporter's Notebook

It's not a registered reporter's
notebook. If you want one of these,
I got it at the Morning Glory
stationery opposite SDS.
Hello people of the internet,

I would assume that there is no need to mention that how fast the first half of the year passed by. It was just February and now it's July. According to the traditional saying, the Autumn is not just 10 days away, which is though my favourite season, but it feels like we're (I've) missed the Summer. The real summer. Anyway, no need to complain about that.

Funny story, I used a full size reporters notebook at my work for everyday note-taking, until it just out of nowhere disappeared. For the life of me, I couldn't find it at work, at home, at anywhere. Which is quite sad. I loved that notebook. Oh well, now it had be replaced. So, today I bought a smaller, lemon yellow, top-spiraled notebook from Morning Glory. Say hello to my everyday partner from now on, Lemon, and her slim friend, the Pen.

Until next time,
Anu Harchu

P.S. I am quite psyched that I would be able to meet my two oldest friends who happened to be born on a same day. Isn't that interesting?
