2. What is good for the billion Chinese people might as well hurt you, but your body would adapt to if you stay long enough!
3. Chinese living in more developed part of the country don't really feel more comfortable with the chopsticks than you guys do, and that's why so many trees are cut down for disposable ones!
My suggestion: lower your standard a bit; follow the locals when possible, but feel free to BYO when it looks ^#$%^@%@
bonus point: impress people of how environment friendly you are with your fancy funky chopsticks when the disposable ones are provided!
