I am comfortable with spoon and fork. With barehands, yes I can manage that one too but using chopsticks? Sad to say I don't know how to use this stuff. I think it's fun to use chopsticks too..

we are very much the same, rangics. i am most comfortable with fork and spoon and i have never learned how to use chopsticks. eating with barehands is something which i am never comfortable doing.

I use spoon and fork in eating - I grew up using it because my entire family uses those utensils regularly too. I cant use chopsticks because I havent been taught of using such eating materials. LOL Eating with bare hands is one great option for me especially when the food I'm eating is dry or fried - it's very Pinoy to make use of our hands when we eat, right??

It might seem rude to non-Filipinos (and some Filipinos too) but when I use my bare hands to eat, I always put my foot on the chair to let my elbow rest on my knee for support.

I believe we are a little lucky that we could do eat with our hands. At least, we are 'trained' to survive in any place without any utensil.. LOL On the other hand, I do use my hands while eating but I dont raise any of my foot. I guess it all depends on preference in the eating habits.

I can use both fork and spoon, as well as chopsticks. I have been brought up to use chopsticks since when I was young. Chopsticks are particularly useful when you are eating noodles.

i think it is in our culture to use spoon and fork. we don't usually have the knife when setting the table. on the other hand, what we filipinos can especially do during meals is to use our bare hands. i think it really requires mastery for this skill to be perfected.. lol. but personally, i am satisfied with using the spoon and fork. or just the fork alone. =D

i always use spoon and fork for eating. i am not good at eating using bare hands only, it was never customary in the family even if we go on picnics. as for chopsticks, oh no, i have never ever been taught how to use it.

I'm from China, I use chopsticks and spoons when we have dinner. It is a traditional custom. When I eat fruits, I often use forks, because I cut them into pieces and put them into a dish, and add some sugar. When I am in the beach or picnic i will use hands. When my hands are clean, I like use hands, but I usually use chopstics and spoons, because it seems more polite in public places. I never eat western-style food in a restaurant, it is too expensive. And I don't like use fork and knife together.

depends on where i am, i use the right style. for restaurants, i prefer to eat with spoon and fork, but with places that uses chopsticks i use that too. for picnics, i use my hands. i am most comfortable using the spoon and fork for meals with rice but if i eat some noodles, i prefer chopsticks.
