      Rice's the most basic and essential or fundamental food ever to Asian people. We eat it all 3 meals a day, and everyday. We use it in our cakes, in our sushis, in our dishes (fried, rice soups, just a plain rice bowl, steamed or sticky or with veggies or meat) and even our desserts. We can't live without this cereal. I get sick of it from time to time though, so I need to switch to other cuisines.

      I do like rice myself :) I like it to ber boiled, fried (egg fried rice) or savoury kind of rice :) Don't have it too often though usually just with curry or stir fry or sometimes with chow mein. I like the savoury rice with things like sausages or fish :)

      I too like rice, and love those boxed flavored ones, like Rice-A-Roni. Hardly had it much when growing up, as my mother only used rice to make rice and raisins, which we ate with cream and sprinkled some sugar ontop. I love soups and hot dishes made with rice, and just recently (for the first time) made stuffed bell peppers with rice. That is good too!

      Naiwen, I'm not sure what you mean by sticky or sweet?

      The only sweet I can think of is... rice cooked with raisins, is that what you meant?

      I have only ever had the plain rice cakes myself which I have had things like cottage cheese and such on however we do get something over here which is similar called Snack-a-Jacks and they are like rice cakes but they are all different flavours such as chocolate, toffee, salt and vinegar :)

      Sticky rice cakes are nice though, Shortie, should give it a go... I like the plain rice with sugar myself.

      Well that's the thing. It's not just plain rice 3 meals a day, it's usually has either different toppings or cooked with something 3 meals a day.

      We don't top our rice with anything, just plain white rice with other foods like veggies or meat.
