Title: Chopstickssssss
Post by: Misz_Mii on August 18, 2008, 07:26:48 am

My brother and I are in a bet: he bought me chopsticks and if I can eat EVERYTHING with them for one whole month, I get to keep them and if not, I got to pay them back to him. I can eat soup and yoghurt and such with a spoon though ;)

Anyhow... I am pretty good at it!! I ate my strawberries with them already and it went pretty good... I think I will learn how to handle them in no-time!!

I've got a nice "doll" on them to learn how to hold them and such, it makes it easier, but I think I should just leave the doll... my brother wants me to do it like the Chinese do, so without the doll lol.

Yeah, we're just crazy like that :P

I didn't even need to practise when it came to eating with Chopsticks for the first time. I picked them up and away I went eating everything on my plate.

One of my Dad's best friends is married to a Chinese lady and we used to stay with them a fair bit as kids... Irene used to insist we ate with chopsticks, so I've always been able to manage them fairly well! ;D

I've never had the opportunity to try.
Every meal I have, it's automatically a knife, fork, spoon situation :P

I'm quite proud that I can actually use them. We always eat stir fry and Chinese food with chopsticks - otherwise we consider it cheating, lol. :P ;) The only hard thing is rice.

It's been 3 days now and I can eat everything with them so far.

Rice isn't that hard... Just eat it like the Chinese do: Shove it into your mouth lol

My brother is frustrated because I can use them and he can't :P And everything I eat he's like: "Use the sticks!!! Hard ey?" "Erm... no not really?" " DARN IT!!!" lol :P

Yeah, generally I scoop it up with a prawn cracker, lol!

Is your brother older or younger than you?

He's about 3 and a half years younger... that explains why he's always trying to be tougher and better in everything than me lol

How did it go? Did you have to give them back? ^^

Post by: Misz_Mii on March 08, 2010, 10:33:55 am

Lol no, he was mad that I could actually use them, so half way through he was like: "OKAY!! OKAY We know that you can use them... just eat with a fork now, will you?!" :P So that made ME the winner 8)

Because I took to chopsticks so easily I find it hard to understand why some people can't use them :P :P :P

Title: Re:Chopstickssssss
Post by: Misz_Mii on March 08, 2010, 11:38:24 am

Yeah me too! :P

Me and my brother were like: "I can use them!" "No you can't! I dare you to blabla" and I was like oh well, let's just do this... but I never used them but I started using them and it felt completely natural, lol.

Well, I've tried using chopsticks, and I can kinda do it, but not too well. :P They're pretty hard to use! lol But it's fun to try. :)

I remembered this fact the other day and thought it was pretty interesting: apparently in China, there's a saying that the further up the chopstick you hold it, the wiser you are. :)

Title: Re:Chopstickssssss
Post by: Misz_Mii on March 15, 2010, 04:30:44 am

Oh really? Wow, that's pretty interesting... I hold them way down, so I guess I'm not that wise, haha

Title: Re:Chopstickssssss
Post by: elijah fan on March 17, 2010, 09:04:45 pm

That's interesting. I'll have to check how far down I hold them next time I decide I'll try them out again. ;) I've only tried a couple of times, so I have no idea where I hold them.

Title: Re:Chopstickssssss
Post by: Elijahs Impact on March 18, 2010, 05:20:51 am

I hold them pretty near the top.

Never tried, so maybe I can, maybe I can't :)
