Sometimes my brother-in-law will absent-mindedly twirl one chopstick around like a helicopter blade while keeping the other in position
School kids in Japan do this too.
I saw where it was proffered that playing video games made some better surgeons. I wonder if this also would help in such areas.
If I remember well, it was my preferred, Aishwarya Rai:
A pretty lady, Francis, definitely a pretty lady.
Funny how discussions on the most inane things can lead us to such wonderful places.
When you have beauty in mind, it can be words or anything else..
Btw, I like eating with chopsticks too..
Her name was Madhuri Dixit. She is bollywood's Julia Roberts.

we went to a korean BBQ joint last night, so i had my first meal with chopsticks.
struggled mightily with the salad, but started to get the hang of it with my entree (chicken, veg + udon noodles).
i now see the benefit of eating this way -- slowing down, savoring each bite.
it may not be for everyone.
but as long as you aren't in a rush, i recommend trying it...
we now eat our nightly salads and some of our dinners with chopsticks...
You should a gold medal winning expert by now.
gettin' better, but don't like eating rice or mashed taters with them.
i either add a binding agent (shredded cheese), or grab a fork...
I love eating with chopsticks. I have become quite good at it as well.
I think it's fun!
I forgot I had previously posted on this thread. oops.
I don't have the patience to eat nonfried/nonsticky rice with chopsticks.
You'd be consider a martial arts master of the chopsticks if you can use chopsticks to eat (drink) soup broth from soup.
for soup drinking, i hollowed one out and used it as a straw...
Really was a tough task to eat Thanksgiving dinner with chopsticks last night. I will admit to some difficulty picking up the turkey leg with the chopsticks.
For soup, I used to use chinese ceramic soup spoons.. I've no idea if they are what all in china eat soup with. I bet much of it is just drunk from the bowl, unless the soup is full of bulky ingredients.
Japanese drink from the bowl.
Chinese use those spoons you described.
Bulky-ingredients soups (e.g. wonton noodle soup) require a combination
of chopsticks and spoon.
we always got chapsticks and the ceramic spoons in CHina and Taiwan
Yeah.... I just didn't know about all of China, quite a humongous territory.
