One little piggy went to market
One little piggy stayed home
One little piggy ate roast beef
One little piggy had none
And one little piggy went ‘wheeeee’ all the way home.

There are strict manners regarding the eating of rice in Japan (along with other places). Here is a starter course on learning the correct table manners, and even better – it is partially in Engrish.
The worst thing and you should never do is stab your chop sticks on the top of rice like this. This means that this rice is food for dead person.
On the other side of the globe, an American sings of brown rice.
And here, in my house, I will eat rice with chili made of veggies ~
Eating rice (porridge) serves as allegory and advice for war strategy ~ from Tamerlane’s Life (Bernhard Rode, 1780-81). “In a letter to Gleim dated 1860, Rode reports . . . Eating rice porridge at the home of an old woman, Tamerlane burns his mouth, since he has taken from the middle. He is advised always to begin at the edge when eating, and thus also in war to secure the borders before advancing into the interior.”
One way to strategize, for sure.
It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. – Mother Teresa
