Can you explain how you eat spaghetti with chopsticks please?

...

just keep your head close to the plate scoop the spaghetti up to your mouth and slurp away!

the slurping part is the key

hope all is well in your corner of the world

Ditch all utensils and go Malaysian and use your hands (right hand anyway!) ...

I once had a Malaysian lunch in Singapore (as a guest) ... I got a bit stuck when presented with a fish: not exactly ideal for de-boning using fingers!

Chopsticks are easy as long as the food is the right size - a steak might cause much amusement :)

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 Beijing kaoya (or, if you're in the US, moo shu chicken). I don't get how they fold it using just the chopsticks...

It is always difficult for me to catch too small or big foods by  chopsticks, like noodles and tobbacoes....
al though use them everyday

The manner of grasp them is wrong over 20 years......
depressed.
crazy for English

i regard chopsticks as one of the chinese culture.
so i 'd like to introduce the method of using them..,wherever i would go .
in my opinion ,  many chinese still cannot grasp them. because i once saw many different gestures of having them.haha!
hence it is no wonder that  a foreigner couldn't use  them  expertly.hehe~~~

Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance,
but in the heart.
