|[2004-01-17] Epiphany frosts|
We have a lot of guests now in Kazan. However, many of them did not expect it to be so cold here!
It is always cold in Russia in this part of January. Our ancestors called the weather “Epiphany frosts”. On the 19th January the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Jesus Christ’s baptizing. Usually we have the air temperature on the 19th January of around -20-30 Ñ.
Well, now it is zero but only 5 days ago we had –15/-20 C!
So if you are going to visit Russia think about warm clothes!
By the way, in hard frosts women write longer letters:). They get frozen all over w [...] |
|[2004-01-13] Others’ mistakes | Natasha+Ray | BBC again | Holidays go on! | The hottest news!!! The first news about a baby from our clients|
Do you remember me telling about Michael and his problems with a visa? He made his visa at some Moscow firma and had to register his visa in Moscow but never did it. He had a direct flight to Kazan. Of course he had problems because no hotel was willing to have problems with police. We helped him and warned that he should register his visa in the city of his destination. If you are planning your trip to Kazan then make your invitation for a visa to Kazan!
It’s funny but we have three guests now with the same problem. They have found some Moscow companies that promised [...] |

|Counting and smiling: summing up!
When summing up we feel kind magicians :) Indeed, we deal with the magic of love!
In fact, we juts go to work and work with our PCs in the office… However, very exciting things happen: People meet virtually, try to appeal to each other, feel shy and do extraordinary romantic things, fall in love and finally say, «Will you marry me?»
This is our job! :) We are very happy people!
Today’s morning we’ve started summing up and here are the results we have by the beginning of 2004:
Oh, by the way, these are only the results of our Kazan office and it is one o [...] |
|[2003-12-27] Our results|
This is the last newsletter this year and it is going to be devoted to our results.
It is typical for Russians to sum up before the New Year holidays. They should finish all their affairs, give back all the debts, beg pardon, forgive others and enter the new coming year with an easy heart.
While I’m finishing counting, you can read two letters. The first one is from Raymond: Nataliya’s fiancé – the main heroes of the future BBC program (http://www.chanceforlove.com/bbc:

|“Indian summer is over... but the season of meetings is not!”This week our office has become the center of client pilgrimage :) Two American men arrived in Kazan one by one. We were also pleased to see here the happy couple of Lyubov andJulius.

|[2003-09-30] Newsweek is taking our interview|
|Newsweek is taking our interview
Yesterday we got a call from a «Newsweek journal» correspondent. She told us she was writing an article concerning the demographic situation. One of the relating issues is going to be immigration of Russian women abroad. We were talking for about half an hour and she managed to ask me plenty of questions. For example, what is the difference between Russian and Ukrainian girls? What’s our opinion about the new-coming law binding marriage agencies to check men’s background?
So you can find this article with parts of the interview included in their next issue.
|[2003-09-27] Good intentions?…|
This week I’ve seen the following in news sites:
“A virus has paralyzed the process of giving American visa in all the countries of the world.
In fact, it has paralyzed the computer system of the USA State Department and they stopped giving American entrance visas all over the world.
As far as I know the virus knocked out the USA Consular service (the Foreign Affairs Department) database. The point is that every person who has applied for an American visa must be checked through this database not to belong to any terrorist or other criminal groups.
The number [...] |
|[2003-09-21] Babjye summer or Indian summer? | The help of President Bush?|
Babjye summer or Indian summer?
We are having babjye summer now in Kazan. Americans call it Indian summer. Babjye is the adjective formed of the noun “baba” meaning “woman” but it is very colloquial and typical to village inhabitants. If city men call women this way they mean to hurt them. The third meaning of this word is an old woman. For example, we say “baba Lena” meaning “the old woman Lena”.
Why do we call warm days in September “Babjye summer”? I think because it is as beautiful, tender and short lasting as woman’s love! :-) I’m kidding.
We are experiencing quick change of men-c [...] |

James Bond in a skirt
Well, guys! This week you have lost your chance to charm one of our girls. She is a real beauty and besides, works with some state secret organization. «Stakes over!»
I’m going to explain.
This week one of our clients has come to our office and asked to remove her profile. The reason is the high level of secrecy of her job. The point is that she works for some international organization and she’s just been transferred to the top-secret department. She is strictly forbidden to join any international marriage agencies! :-)) That’s why I called her James Bond in a skir [...] |

Last week we told you that one of our clients had been invited to the interview at the embassy to get the Alien Fiancée’s visa K-1 in the USA. Sad to say but she failed to get it because of a misprint in the dates. Unfortunately, such things happen. Here I’d like to pay your attention to the necessity of careful checking all the lines of your documents. I can give you a piece of advice:

|[2003-03-03] Wonderful news!!! Soon the 8th of March!|
Why this news is so good?
First of all, it is one more occasion to treat your lovely woman with the bouquet of nice spring flowers.
Secondly, it is an opportunity to show your care and attention. Probably you know already, every woman should get the flowers on this day. It is awful – to see so many happy people around you and to feel lonely, as your “prince” is so far from you and no one pays attention to you…
Thirdly, the 8th of March is the holiday that closes the traditional “high season” of presents. You won’t meet any great holiday till Christmas in Russian calendar. (Of cour [...] |
|[0000-00-00] Church marriage ceremony.|
Nowadays many couples opt for a marriage in a church but church marriages in Russia still do not have official status, and the church requires a civil marriage certificate to arrange the ceremony for the couple (the couple must be officially married by ZAGS before the marriage in church). So if the couple plans to have a church ceremony, they will usually go through the civil ceremony a few days before the wedding.
The Russian church ceremony is colorful and solemn but the complete traditional ceremony is very long, and as guests and the couple have to stand during the ceremony (there are n [...] |
|[0000-00-00] Popular Russian Names For Girls|
Russian full name consists of:
First name + Middle name (Patronymic) + Last name (Surname)
e.g. Nataliya Alexandrovna Ivanova
Russian middle names
All Russian children are given only a first name by his or her parents. The middle name is constructed of the father's first name of a child. This name is called a patronymic. A daughter of Alexander will have a middle name or patronymic called Alexandrovna. This name was constructed by adding the ending "ovna" to the father's first name. This indicates that she is a female child of a man named Alexander. As for a boy his patronymic is "Alexa [...] |

|[0000-00-00] Russian food: are you ready?|
|We have the widespread Russian legend telling that English people prefer oatmeal porridge for breakfast. We adore reading The Adventures of Sharlock Holmes and if you ask a Russian man or woman: “What is served for breakfast in Baskerville Hall?” you are certain to hear, “Oatmeal porridge, sir!”:) It’s just a myth but I learned it’s false not so long ago. An English man who came to Kazan complained about terrible breakfast in his hotel. They served only porridge and sausages, no fruits. “We don’t eat this for breakfast, he said, it’s too hard and rich for morning meal.” Art is long, life is sh [...] |

Spring is the best time for planning summer vacations. I am often asked: how much time should pass from the first letter till the first meeting? My answer is: no more than 6 months! And better 3-4.

What to say to your girl in Russian on the 8th of March – we will tell you that next week. And today let’s talk about winter and spring.
Throughout the previous week we had Maslenitsa (Pancake week) in Russia. It is the holiday week when people eat pancakes, have outdoor fetes and burn the scarecrow of winter. People bid farewell to winter and welcome spring. It is a very ancient Russian tradition. The last day of Maslenitsa – Sunday – is called Forgiving, as on that day everyone should ask to forgive him. Just after Maslenitsa Great Feast begins and it lasts seven weeks and ends with [...] |
|[0000-00-00] To love in Russian (learning Russian phrase of love)|
We’ll devote several lessons to writing good letters. It’s easy!
Let’s talk about first letters. The worst mistakes are:
1. Impersonal letter. Each gentleman should introduce himself and tell the woman about his life at least in a nutshell. Very often letters have no name, let alone age, occupation and the country of living. However, all these facts are very important for Russian ladies.
2. Standard letters. Letters starting with «Hi, there!» are good for an ash can only. Address your letters to each girl personally. We’ll give you a hint: just comment on some fact from her personal profi [...] |

She calls back and says the following: - You said I got a letter. When did it come? - Just a moment, I’ll check. Right, you got a letter of today’s date.- Who’s it?- It’s Nilson.
