I always forget to buy the really nice gift Hashi like you mention...I end up buying bulk at a gift-shop in the airport. lol (hey...doesn't mean I don't like you if you ever get one of these. just means I'm a lazy shopper. )




At least now I know where they came from.

Where can I get those? Is it bad manners to show up an expensive restaurant with your own pair of 'training hashi'? Gives new meaning to the term 'ugly American'.




Oooo I need a pair too! When I try and use hashi it looks like I am in hand to hand combat with a large spider...

has anyone seeen the 'chopstick bowls' were there are two holes on one side and two indents on the oopposite for hashi to be 'held' in the bowl instead of resting on top of the rim when finished? i saw them at candem market (famous market in london, slightly more famous for its illegal goods than its legal ones) a couple of months ago and just remembered them.

Two holes and two indents....sounds like my head... I have not seen these. Are they traditional or a modern adaptation?

I was told by a friend from China that the best way to become properly proficient in the use of chopsticks is to practice in your own time by trying to pick up marbles out of a bucket of water. Not the most polite thing to do, but practical for improving technique...

I practiced with picking up grapes. little bit easier to learn.

here's a good page for learning as well: http://www.robsworld.org/chopsticks.html

When I first learned, I just ate with chopsticks whenever I could. I love using them now. Let's just say that, when I was finally able to go to Japan as a student ambassador, I surprised my homestay at how well I could use them. They gave me so many compliments and I was shocked that they were so impressed. It's kind of annoying to take to school though. Everyone asks me why I eat with chopsticks and I can't eat in peace during my 20 minute lunch. I wanted to learn in the fist place because I was influence by my Chinese aunt and cousins. My uncle married a woman from Hong Kong who had children already.
