Tongs Vs “Tong”

I believe most people know what tongs are. It is kitchen equipment that you can pinch the food and transfer it from one place to another.

I always love to tell you the similarities between the Chinese culture and the western one.

In Chinese, “Tong” is a last name in Cantonese spelling. It is also a Chinese dynasty’s name which was the greatest era in the Chinese history.

What a coincidence, huh?
