Kel has a thing about "a lady has to EAT like a lady". I break his rule often by simply slurping noodles.
And then, we went to Japan where EVERYONE was slurping - ladies, kids, men... To prove my point, check out the papermat I found at Men-ichi, they even include cupping the bowl and bring it to your mouth.
So now I have the license to slurp and convert him into a slurper as well! The idea is not to be a messy slurper; it is to be an elegant slurper.
Try it, slurp it!
