Why can’t eating a meal be like taking medicine?
Do we live to eat or eat to live? This was the title of the book B.Gerelmaa wrote who is the presenter at the 31rd open seminar. People maybe too quick to answer this question but we have to think first.
What do we eat and live for? Instructor Gerelmaa is the head of the “VIP Club”, adviser to the Soyolj Center, and member of Mongolian Lectures center. She is lawyer. Ever since she was young girl, she had a headache, pain in stomach and one time diagnosed of ovarian cancer. Because of that, she started studying and practicing medicine and healthy eating.
. Eventually, she became healthy and she wants to share her experience with others. We eat because we need to revive and nourish our body. Most people think they having a good food but they may not get the right nutrition. We addicted to the taste and forget what food does to the internal organs such as stomach, liver and kidney.
Nowadays we use many stages of processed goods which are artificial or died for long time. For example, brown sugar is better than processed white sugar but we buy white sugar based on the look. So, make right decision based on the nutrition not on the look thus we stay healthy and will live longer.
At the end, we would like use Gerelmaa’s favorite quote from Kunz If you lose money its nothing, if you lose time it’s a lot but if you lose your health that’s all.

The Center has “Let’s talk in Japanese” hour
The library is starting “Let’s talk in Japanese” series starting from this month. Students who are learning Japanese do not get many chances to practice the language with native speakers thus through this session we hope to provide an opportunity to practice Japanese and improve their skills.
On May 21st, we organized our first class “Graduation time”. Participants were 20 students from various Mongolian universities and guests were 2 Japanese students who studying in Mongolia. Beginning of the class to ease the pressure students played fun game to memorize each other’s names.
Then two guest speakers talked about graduation ceremony of Japanese middle, high-school and university. They provided interesting information where girls can ask for the second button of the uniform from senior class boy who she likes.
Participants asked if there is a graduation song exists, what is the name of the song, if the students go on trip after the graduation, how much students spend on graduation clothes, what kind of clothes they wear etc.
Guest informed the participants on Japanese students do not celebrate or spend much money on graduation, they do not change clothes, and they tend to be sad not happy because they are parting from their long time friends. We sang this year’s graduation song “Hello my life” and Japanese graduation song together.
We do hope that our participants learned new words and practiced their Japanese in hour and half. We will continue our class on interesting topics and welcome you to join us.
