AddingOil and JiaYou (Jiayou is the better looking one)

AddingOil:

I’m the Asian American husband AddingOil and my wife is JiaYou, a recent immigrant from China to the US. We met and married in Shanghai while I was working there for 7 years, and now we reside in New York City. We run the blog TheNomadAtHeart.com to share our experiences of living and traveling in Shanghai, New York City, and around the world.

We have traveled extensively throughout China (30+ cities) and throughout Asia, from as far north as Mongolia to as far south as Malaysia. We want to help those interested in going off the beaten path or doing slow travel wherever we’ve been to and wherever our future travels take us.

And hopefully we can help other new immigrants to the U.S., especially Chinese immigrants, go through the spousal immigration process and settle here as we build our life in New York City. JiaYou can share her confusion (and I can share my frustration!) as we contend with issues together.

We are just starting this website, so please check back regularly and leave comments so we can have some fruitful discussions.

JiaYou:

我的名字叫”加油”(JiaYou),来自中国,移民定居美国才几个月。我和我老公AddingOil相识在上海且在上海生活了7年。我们的网站名为TheNomadAtHeart.com,主要分享我们在上海、美国以及全球的生活和旅游经验。

在这里希望我们能够帮助新的美国移民者(尤其是中国移民者),贯穿配偶移民手续及美国定居,就如我们建立美国家园一样。我将分享我的困惑的地方(他分享来自我的压力),以及分享我们在生活中遇到的种种问题。

我刚开始建立这个网站,希望大家多多关注!如果我们有不足的地方,还请大家能给予我们更多宝贵意见!谢谢!
