[Cheemchi Academy] Chopsticks Lesson 2.3 : Chinese etiquette

The summer vacation is (almost) over! Schools are starting their lessons again, so we also start our lessons ! Here one about the Chinese chopsticks etiquette.

China is one of the traditional chopstick cultures, along with Japan and Korea. If you want more information about proper chopstick etiquette, go to the Japanese etiquette lesson. There is one major difference between the Chinese chopstick and the Japanese chopstick. Chinese chopsticks are usually round unlike the square-sided Japanese kind. Also they don’t come attached , so you don’t have to snap them apart like Japanese ones. 

Like the other etiquette ( the proper chopstick etiquette) it’s not allowed to wave with your chopsticks around over different dishes trying to select what you want, don’t stick the chopstick ends into the...

Cheemchi Meets Youtube: Pauliene’s favorite Youtubers

You may or may not know, this month’s theme is about Youtube.
It will be about our personal favorite Youtubers/ Youtube channel, but we could only choose three.
So without further ado, here are three of mine!

The first Youtube channel that I like is Nerdy Nummies!


The channel is a nerdy-themed baked goods and is hosted by Rosanna Pansino (Ro) who loves to bake as a hobby.
Ro is an American baker, actress, and YouTube personality. She also released a single called ‘Perfect together’.
Every week she has a new recipe and a theme with it and explains how to bake and make it. Sometimes she has guests over such as Smosh and Rhett and Link. A while ago she even had Shigeru Miyamoto and Bill Trinen from Nintendo over to let them taste the treats and play some Mario Kart 8 with her!
I like to wat...

Hello Kitty High Tea

On the 14th of April we existed for one year and because of that we wanted to celebrate with the people close to us. As we were thinking what we could do to celebrate, we decided to choose for something we wanted to do for a long time: Hello Kitty High tea! And then it was the 19th. We met up with everyone on the Hague station and made our way to SET Café.

The feel of the restaurant is like an authentic Japanese restaurant. Even Tsunacon took pictures like they were in Japan.
We had reserved a table for 11 people, but as one didn’t show up because of reasons we still had to pay for that missing person, so be careful!

On the table there were cute Hello Kitty mugs and bowls. It was sad they didn’t have any Hello Kitty chopsticks!

When you wanted service, you could press the service bell...

It’s Cheemchi’s birthday!

Just before you know it, a year went by already!

Even though we started posting in English in February, it was in Dutch, exactly a year ago.

It all started when I knew Eat Your Kimchi was coming to the Netherlands again as I was working for Hallyucon. At that moment I started to form an idea about starting a blog where I could talk about Korean/Japanese restaurants, stores and the like in the Netherlands, but it turned out to be so much more. Even though I stopped for a while, I wanted to start all over again with someone by my side, that someone became Charlotte!
