About Kuishimbo

When I was growing up, I was called two things in Japanese (my mom’s side is Japanese): “doji” (どじ) which means a klutz and “kuishimbo” (食いしん坊) which means a glutton or grubber (someone who really loves to eat). In college, in our Taiwanese class (my dad’s side is Taiwanese), I learned you can greet your friends by saying “Chap pa boe!” or literally, “Have you eaten yet?” I continue to appreciate grubby food, both locally and internationally, and I’ve recently gotten back into one of my favorite hobbies: photography. Kuishimbo is my photoblog, where I can share photographs (and sometimes, video) I’ve taken in various cities about food, art/music/culture, and other experiences that I get excited about.
