chopsticks is essential utensil in which every chinese person--no, oriental person--should have some basic knowledge about.
sadly, my sister Leila lacks such knowledge.
as white washed as Leila is (and i suppose the rest of the family), one would figure that she would at least know how to use chopsticks.
our family eats rice nearly everyday. we usually have the typical chinese meal. rice, steamed/cooked/boiled/stirfry vegetables and some fish. maybe some other meat occasionally. (i'm not a big fan on meat.)
moreover, Leila was bought up in China as a little girl. sure, she was born in Canada, but she spent part of her childhood in China.
Leila enjoys chinese movies. Leila also has some crazy chinese friends. (one of which i call stalker...hehe.) Leila likes chinatown. additionally, leila goes to pacific mall. (pacific mall is some popular asian mall in markham...or was it richmond hill?)
included in this equation is that Leila can read and speak Chinese quite fluently.
i can barely do both the former and the latter. (shame on me.)
so, it doesn't make sense.
Leila is the least white washed of the entire family (excluding parents, of course) and ironically, she cannot hold chopsticks. well, Leila can hold them--just not properly and not for long.
our heritage is going to white washed away, isn't it?
