is "hashi." You either got it or you don't when is comes to chopsticks. Pick it up anyways. Locals use it to scrabble eggs, turn food on the hibachi, catch flies, investigate crime scenes and for eat. We often impress mainland haole & mainland China people all the time when us, Locals that Don't-Look-Asian use hashi correctly. Hint: Don't poke'um down in your rice. It means Death.
