hi everyone, can u handle chopsticks? honestly, i cannot. u know, chinese people say: when u hold chopsticks, u hold them to the top , u will marry to someone who lives far away...the other way, u hold them on the bottom, u will marry someone who lives near u....believe it or not??

Hi there. I'm not good in using chopstick but i do know how to use it. I love to eat in Chinese restaurants but i usually asked for spoon and fork because i feel impatient in using it and i become more hungry. Can't wait to put those foods inside my mouth. My partner is a chines so i'm trying to perfect my skill in using those sticks. I hope i become patient now.

I am Chinese, and I can use chopsticks :) Yes, old people talked about that, but I guess that's just opposite to what you said. If they hold at the bottom, they would marry someone far away... The logic is usually kids hold chopsticks at the bottom part, which is not correct in the eyes of older generation, so they frighten the kids: If you do that, you will marry someone far from your home (and be miserable)! Maybe it doesn't work for foreigners, :P

I am a chinese and I used chopsticks since I was a kid but in a wrong way. I did not learn how to hold it the right way as I started holding it in a crossed way when I was about 5 years old. Since then, I hold it that way. Cant change back to the right way now but it works well for me.
