Q: Fork or Chopsticks?

Just curious when and where people use either of these. Personally, in public I always use chopsticks. At home, it depends on what I'm eating, but usually a fork most of the time. Actually, it depends on who I'm with. If im at home and there are Chinese eating with me I will use chopsticks since I feel out of place with a fork.

 

So the question is, when and where do you use them? Do you prefer one over the other? What foods do you like or don't like eating with chopsticks? I dont like eating peas with chopsticks. lol

It all depends on where/what I’m eating. 

 

Chinese restaurant? Always chopsticks!

 

Foreign restaurant? Depends on the food...Steak & chips I’d use a knife & fork. Risotto I’d go for spoon or chopsticks depending on my mood. Spaghetti would be fork & spoon even though I’d use chopsticks if thin noodles

been in E/SE Asia pushing 15 years, so I feel weird if it's not the 'Sticks that are Chopped'.

I try to joke with Asians when I get the standard 'can you use kuaizi?" I like to look at them and say, 'yeah, pretty much, but I still prefer a spoon for soup'. Crickets.....

I always use chopsticks when I eat at home, except when I go for steak or soup, but for everything else I feel more comfy to eat with chopsticks.

I also rarely eat from the plate. My bowl is colourful, he he.

I use kuaizi at my mom's dinners 'cause everyone is amazed how I can chop on spaghetti with it.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
