on the etymology of "ramen"
One day it hit her when she heard her Chinese chef using his call to let her know an order was done: "Hao-ra" (好了), meaning "it's ready."
She decided to start calling it Ra-men, and the name quickly took off.

The Roman typefaces used in Chinese and Japanese text
I am obsessed with these.
From this Ask MetaFilter post, it seems that the Roman letters are tacked onto [Chinese and Japanese] fonts almost as an afterthought, for when you need to interject a few words of English into your Chinese website, for example. Hence, they aren't really optimised for the eye of a non-Chinese writer, or perhaps aren't optimised much at all, and usually look like this. It's not one specific font as I thought.
