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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
