I've been using chopsticks for about as long as I can remember. The only thing I can't do with my chopsticks that the Chinese can (that I've seen) is put together and fold up a little pancake of Be ...


So that is already something I think for westerners. I remember once I have asked my friend chop the steak for me in a western restaurant. That is embarrassing,very!!
