身元 (Who am I? + Contact Info)

大家好!

我叫Jonathan.  我来自美国纽约州.  我觉得 曼哈顿唐人街的饺子的味道不错.  Well, that’s enough of that.  All I said is that Chinatown’s (of Manhattan) dumplings aren’t bad.  I also said that I’m from New York state, and “big home good,” a very literal translation of “hi everybody.”

I’ve lived on-and-off in East Asia – specifically Japan, Indonesia, China, and Hong Kong – for roughly three years, but am currently back in NYC. If it involves getting lost, eating just about anything apart from much of what makes up the game Operation, ambling for hours just to get one snapshot of unusual (hint:easily found in Chinese cities), unbelievable (hint: easily found in Chinese cities) or downright ugly (hint:you’ve missed your chance) structures, learning vocabulary from jargon not even spoken in Queens – count me in.

Students, somnambulists, sightseers, and other humans are welcome to send me an e-mail at: buildingmybento@gmail.com, or follow me with Twitter @BuildingMyBento.

  1. What happened to “Tad’s Broiled Steaks?”

    • I still haven’t tried the place! Also, BuildingMyBento is much more fitting for me…ie the first place in Asia I visited was Japan, and also how every new day adds a different note to my (and everyone’s) personal bento.
      Why do you ask?

    Participation is optional, of course. Although I’d be lying if I said I didn’t anticipate some compelling and witty remarks to come out of this. But, hey, whatever you feel like doing, ok. – Angie

    Hello Jonathan
    Thanks for your like. Going through your blog – I can’t believe it! You’ve written about all my favourite foods – Greek, Middle Eastern, Thai, Indian in one go! And then you wrote about language being a communication barrier – I think this all the time! If only music or something else could be used for expression. Definitely following your blog now.

    • Cheers for the comment, Gabrielle! Can you find acceptable Greek food in Tokyo?

      Have you tried riding a bike around Tokyo as well? It is one of my favorite activities; I generally rented from Orix (there’s one by Yaesuguchi), but I’m sure other rental places exist too.

  6. Hi, Jonathan. I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I hope that you accept! 🙂 Have a great day. – Shanna

    • Shanna, thank you for the nomination! I’ll accept, but I’ve already spilled some of my guts (not all of my guts. If that were the case, I wouldn’t be here now.)…I’ll try to put a different spin on it.

      I look forward to reading more about New Mexico (and its chilies) too!
