Unintended consequences
The importance of trying earnestly

About 5 years ago, I went to a sushi place for the first time. It was also the first time I was in the US&A and never before did I have to figure out using chopsticks. Not knowing how to use chopsticks when dealing with Sushi and more importantly Wasabi is a nightmare that is hard to explain. Despite all the damage, I still liked Sushi. A few years late, I managed to import large quantities of chopsticsk and began my self inflicted training of trying to use it on many food items. The hope was that one day, I will be able to gracefully handle Sushi. Today happended to be the day of reconing when I unexpectadly ended up at shiro and had to put my skills to test. Suprisingly, I had no issues dealing with it and it seemed simple. All the years of practise did finally pay off.

I started off with noodles but then started going for finely diced fried onions (small and slippery), chopped beans and what not.

The challenge with certain kinds of sushi is that it is a mere rice lump and if you apply too much pressure, it completely disintegrates. So it about minimal grip needed to get the job done.
