Just as with European-style cutlery, chopsticks come with their own etiquette and codes of use.
- Do not wave your chopsticks around.
- Do not point your chopsticks at anybody.
- When you’ve finished with your chopsticks, or want to put them down, rest them horizontally across the edge of your plate, or rim of your bowl, or use a chopstick-rest (if provided).
- DO NOT stick your chopsticks upright in your food. This resembles sticks of incense used to pray to the deceased, and is considered highly offensive!
