Sunday Scribblings #91

Aaron’s word of inspiration this week is chopsticks.

I love using chopsticks. I wouldn’t really say that I am very good at it, but I do enjoy it. And I enjoy the types of food that come with chopsticks.

While in South Korea, I obviously had a lot of practice with chopsticks. However at restaurants their chopsticks are metal (easily sanitized after using) and flat. It took a little while to get adjusted to, especially since I know I’m not the best at using them, but I after a while, I decided that I love them way more than the round ones that we have here. I even ended up buying a set for myself to practice with in my apartment.

When I came home the first time, I decided to go with a Korean tradition and bring gifts for my family. And it wasn’t just for my close family, but my extended family as well. Since I wanted something that was easy to divide up and wouldn’t take up a lot of space in my suitcase, I settled on chopstick sets. Each pair of chopsticks was slipped into a lovely fabric case with a little decoration on it.

I returned in the middle of November so it was easy to get my gifts out for Christmas – I sent them with my parents to their sibling dinners or lunches and everyone couple got 2 sets. I tried to match personalities with the colours of the fabric sleeve for the chopsticks. My one aunt loves green, so the two sets that were sent to her and her husband have a sleeve of dark forest green. My uncle loves red, so he got two red sets of chopsticks.

My brother just found his in a box of odds and ends. I’m not sure why but the fabric of his sleeve was pink HAHA! Oh well! I think I got him other things as well.

Do you like to use chopsticks? Are you good at it? Or could you use some practice? Lemme know in the comments below!

  2. Korean chopsticks definitely require a bit more finesse due to the lack of friction, but they are great both functionally and aesthetically. I’m at the point that if you give me a fork I’m going to end up stabbing myself since it’s so wide (vs. chopsticks).


  3. I like that you developed some skill using chopsticks. Honestly though, I can’t even eat properly with a fork and knife, so I won’t even give chopsticks a try. Give me my adapted spoon instead, LOL.
