Some time ago, my seniors went on a student exchange to Japan, to be precise to the university of ibaraki, the cost is borne by the campus and can get a few yen pocket money, he was there for 40 days, and when he returned to the homeland, he gave me a pair of wooden chopsticks it's straight from japan, what a surprise for me! I never even asked for it, but I rarely use chopsticks, have to use them often how was your experience eating using chopsticks? what about you, do you often get souvenirs from your friends or family who are abroad?

Welcome to this wonderful community. I stayed in Tokyo for few months and tried chopsticks but could not get it well. My elder daughter is a pro at it and we have few pairs here that she uses regularly. So thoughtful of your friend

@youfiq I have given up on it. Perhaps crossed the age to learn and master challenging things

As a kid we ate a lot of Asian food so I had no issue with eating with chopsticks. I would get teased because I would use them a lot and rarely used a knife and fork

You must be close with this senior. I know how to use it, but I am not good. I don't have any family or friends who go abroad. But it must be nice

I usually have a hard time using one. I, too, often get souvenirs from friends or family. It is usually something tiny, shirt, or food.

@youfiq I also like giving the same kinds, especially when I was still an office worker. I find happiness in giving a little something to my colleagues after a short vacation.

I really like that he went to Japan for 40 days and gave you a pair of chop sticks. We went to Japan and found it to be very expensive. We began in a traditional hotel in Osaka. It had a floor with mats on. I opened a cupboard and set out our bedding which was at ground level. We went to Kyoto and stayed in another traditional hotel. I usually get the souvenirs on my own. I have a collection of costume dolls and fridge magnets of the places I have traveled to.

I know how to use them and I have a few pairs at home. It's quite easy to use. Whenever my friend went traveling, she would always buy fridge magnets for me. I prefer than more than anything else.
