Btw, if you go to Panda Express or some other chinese food place, most of the time they'll give you a few pairs of chopsticks for free. My mom went to Panda to ask for some for the Chinese New Year (she's a kindergarten teacher) and they gave her 300 pairs! She and her teaching partners are set for 5 years!!
