I am Chongpu, a Nankinger, and study journalism at Northeastern University.

People who have interest in knowing Chinese culture, Chinese people or their stories are welcome to visit and leave your comments. In addtion, if you want to know something that I have not mentioned in this blog, please leave your message, and I will work on it soon.

About Chi Le Ma
Chi Le MA (吃了吗)? It literally means “Have you eaten” in Chinese. However, I am not actually caring about your stomach, but just wondering “How are you”.
Haha, is this interesting? Yes, eating is an important culture in China. Language in China is also like a huge swimming pool in which you can never find an edge once you jump in it.
If you have interests in Chinese culture, you don’t need to spend months on applying for a visa, suffering from learning the daily conversation, preparing to fight against the terrible weather in Beijing. There are a lot of good places around you where you can go to experience these culture. Yes, they are the Chinese communities in Boston.
Chi Le Ma will take you to have a closer look at these communities, to know the people who have lived there for a long time, to watch the activities people use to celebrate their traditional festivals, and to taste the food with the authentic Chinese flavor.
Do you have something about Chinese culture that you want to know but I have not mentioned here? Please leave your message below and I will try my best to add them to the blog as soon as I can.
Hope you enjoy Chi Le Ma. O(∩_∩)O
