Menu items

It’s no secret that Chingrish menus were a constant source of amusement for me when I lived in Jingers.

But for the most part, Mongers menus get it right… however, here’s a couple of snaps I’ve collected recently…

Most of you would know me as a latte drinker, but this description just wasn't doing it for me... yummmmmmm... large measures of emulsified milk.

Yes, my eyes were drawn to the sausages too...

Got milk?

I reckon you could ask any expat living in Mongers and they’d all say they’re hanging out for fresh milk. Drinking UHT milk all the time can be such drag. Although, it does have its plusses… for example, I can throw these mini-milks in my gym bag and know that I will always have milk for my cereal when I get to work.

And, I don’t drink just any milk… oh no, only the best for me:

Yeah, I don’t know what that means either…

Country day

When our friend Batbold asked if we wanted to join him and some of his mates for a day out of UB, I was like, ‘oh hell yes!’…

Such a great day… I did, after all, have my first ever shot of straight-up whiskey… three in fact… and two right before we played a game of Mugby, outside, in -20 weather.

Here’s a little video that captures the adventure, including driving through a very different part of UB than my last video showed….

Around Town #2

I thought a video would help you get a better idea of what UB is like.

This starts just outside our apartment block, and finishes in front of the State Department Store.

What this video doesn’t show is the crazy traffic you often experience here. For whatever reason(s), it was an eerily quiet Sunday.

Oh, and FYI – I make no apologies for any motion sickness this video causes you. Welcome to my world. Bumpy roads combined with the heaters blaring in cars can often make for some very green passengers!

 

A big occasion

Today something very BIG happened. The Creative Services Director at my new job called me in to tell me that…. drum rolll… MY VERY FIRST MONGOLIAN PRINT JOB HAD BEEN DELIVERED!

Eat your heart out Pizza Hut… Microsoft… Lipton… KY Personal Lubricant (they’re some of the clients I have worked on if you didn’t join the dots already!)
