No, It's unlucky that chopsticks break in half lengwise while eating.

PS. metaltoy believe the fact that I were replying after you here now, is a really very good omen. You will have a really really very good time now on. :)


I recomend you try to use chopstikes.
It is said that using chopsticks is good for our brains in Japan. We need a good hand control to use them.
Having a good hand control leads to having a good brain.

I have immunity of brains. It's really bitty, even though I'm so old already, I still haven't get them.. when most other people already have get them in their childhood.

But as brainless person, I understand so that when I use chopsticks here, then as result, you all in Japan will have good brains. So if that's the case I may try. I'm not envious for making your brain better

I tried with 2 pencil to pick stuff it seems it may be possible to use them.

Anyway, I wonder what wood is best for making chopsticks.. I think Juniperus should be best of these trees growing here. It's strong. also wooden spoons usually have made by it.. When I was kid I wanted to make a spoon from Juniperus, but it was so hard to cut That I couldn't. Even though it was a dead tree when I cut it from forest(I had no hearth to cut living one) after it dry inside of house it got so hard. that even sharpest knife couldn't cut it well..

I guess it's just a matter of getting used to it.. I'm a trying-hard chopstick user. :oops: So it's good for you TriCuong, that you use it everyday..

After I have eaten a dish with the use of chopsticks, my hands started to ache.. :lol: :lol: I guess i put too much pressure to hold it in place so that it doesn't fall.. It's embarassing, so when I go to a Chinese restaurant, I request for spoon and fork..But there's so much room for learning..maybe one day.. :roll:

But I thought if you use it too much, it would give you arthritis when you get old? :?

I heard the same effect gives buttoning a shirt. As to chopsticks, nobody uses them except in a Chinese restaurant here, actually I'm not got used to use them too...But if I'm someday in China, I will. :) ...or When I'm in Rome, I will do as Romans do and so forth. :P

Never.
Chopstiks for me are something like knife and fork for you.
So I can't use knife and fork well instead. :(
