Let’s View it as Closing an Old Chapter and Beginning a New One

Dear viewer,

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for watching our show. Every Wednesday, we have brought to you a new and fresh episode without failing. The reason? I guess we’ve regarded the rule we created back in time (i.e. to never miss an episode) very seriously. And here we are – Episode # 100! Yey!!!

It has been 2 years since myself and Julie sat down in the Baresso coffee shop to develop a concept for MyDenmarkTV.com. Ever since, we’ve learned a lot, have gone through many changes, have seen many improvements. And we’ve had our downs and some disappointments too. But nevertheless we’ve made it! And thanks to you for your continuous support and loyalty – dear viewer! This all really means a lot to us.

I know I am making it sound a bit dramatic like we finally made it to the end of the road and it is over. In some way it is true, but in the other it is not. It is true that the show you have watched for the past 2 years will be discontinued – the 100th episode is the last episode you will see in its originality. Essentially, this means that after these 2 years we decided to take a break and spend some quality time on “revitalizing” and taking MyDenmarkTV to a whole new level, which is why it is NOT over. And of course, we also think that Episode # 100 is just a cool number to close the chapter at :)

You might also ask, but so, what is next? Who does the future hold? Well, as the guys said in the Episode # 100, our plan is to bring you even a better show in the near future, or actually more specifically, we are working on a number of shows that will be both educational and entertaining. Whether you are a tourist, an expat, a Dane or a graduate student or even a journalist, you will find something interesting that caters to your need one way or another. I am sure about that.

What about the MyDenmarkTV presenters? There will be some changes here too. In the upcoming development, there will be some “old” hosts as well as new faces that will bring their own styles and personalities to the MyDenmarkTV network. In other words, just wait and see!! And yes, we are very excited about the new chapter!

What happens to the old show – all the 100 episodes you’ve produced up till now? Nothing, the old show (all the episodes) will always be available for your viewing. If you happen to need to know something, just go back and watch at the past episodes. Remember there is a lot of information we’ve covered. Of course, some of it is time-sensitive (e.g. events, news related stuff), and the rest is still valid information.

Last but not least, life is all about growing. We are grateful to be in such a position to be able to reach to so many of you around the word. For us, this change is another step towards the growth. As I once said to the whole team, let’s view it as closing an old chapter and beginning a new one. Once again, thanks for reading this and stay tuned!

All the best,
Vladimir Chen
Founder of MyDenmarkTV.com

Interview with Susanne Jensen, Founder and Director of Precious Spirits

We met with Susanne Jensen, founder of Precious Spirits, and were touched by the fantastic non-profit project she has in South Africa.

She has established unique workshops for children from Townships who are given a chance to meet different cultures and nations from around the world.

By supporting this project you help these children to be inspired by a world they maybe didn’t have a chance to see.

Please have a look and participate/join if any interest. Go to Precious Spirits website.

Earth Hour in Copenhagen

Earth Hour in Copenhagen

In Copenhagen

We went out yesterday to see the effect of the Earth Hour campaign in the heart of Copenhagen (on Rådhudspladsen). Of course we knew that the best shot we could take of people/buildings turning their lights off is from a helicopter view over the city (or from the roof of some tall building). But when we got to the square, we were surprised to see that only a few buildings shut off the lights, whereas the rest of the buildings were still consuming energy as normal.

Here is the picture of a particular building (the one with the brands on) where you can clearly see the lights went off at exactly 20:30 (except the ground floor)

And this is how the same building (slightly different angle) looks with all the lights on.

Cameras, computers, cakes and… out in the cold – Notes on Espisode #41

It’s been a hectic couple weeks putting together episodes owing to the travel plans of our team, and hopefully this is the last episode for a while that we will have to freeze ourselves in order to make! We’ll see…

Here’s a few additional comments to what was said in the episode:

Pretty much anyone who has spent time in Denmark knows edbpriser.dk is a great site for buying a computer or other hardware and software. It’s also a great place to find a camera or video – I’ve purchased no less than 3 cameras shopping through edbpriser.dk over the years, and loads of random computer supplies like external hard drives, memory cards, usb cables, and much more. Unlike many countries, as a business or individual, its very difficult to hide (consider that whenever you move, your bank is automatically informed of your address), meaning that even buying stuff online from obscure small shops with an address in another part of the country is fairly safe – they don’t really have anywhere to run, which pretty much ensures good service. I’ve never had any problems buying stuff online.

As for Lagkagehuset, perhaps the best bakery chain in Copenhagen. I hope to that someone from Lagekagehuset would like to participate in a future episode, as I think they have a great story to tell – after all, (as I noted in the episode) this is one of the relatively few businesses in Denmark that has succeeded in expanding – dramatically expanding – during what for many are tough economic times.

Arken, the museum Julie talks about, is a great museum placed in an unfortunate location. It really is a wonderful piece of architecture and they have some fantastic exhibitions out there – but it’s not the easiest place to get to from Copenhagen (you have to take the s-train, then either walk or take a bus).

I’m looking forward to our next episode, which is a special one indeed. I’ll write a bit about it once we are done filming this weekend.

Lots of Sunshine! Hopefully, It Is A Sign of Spring Coming To Denmark

Well, this post really has nothing to do with MyDenmarkTV production. But it does show the changing weather in Denmark. Almost the whole week we have had a lot of sunshine (although still cold). So, I thought I would do nothing but reach my brand new camera and take a couple of shots outside my apartment in Frederiksberg. I hope you enjoy the pictures ;)
