I nominate Bingocards for Feste.

Bingocards's posts are a truly remarkable combination of sound advice, humor and writing that is truly a form of art. There is a reason that many many people have suggested that he write a book.

As many may know, Bingocards is a young American engineer living in Japan and he often writes posts that flow from that experience.

When I went to find posts the problem was that there were so many that I wanted to list here! Ah, well, here's a few (but I commend the rest of them to you).

For example, this post about travel advise for Japanese traveling to America:

About life in Japan as an American:

As well as posts about his family, but with some of his wisdom sprinkled in:
