    Im always keen to know which units of measurements you measure in?

    I’m Canadian, I live in China, and I measure in grams, spoons and cups. And kilometers and feet. Go figure.

    What about you?

    I’m American, so cooking is ounces, cups, teaspoons and tablespoons. In crafting, I use mostly grams, but sometimes teaspoons, tablespoons, and cup measurements. Driving is miles (or the good ole Southern “you drive over yonder to that cute little red brick church, then you turn left and drive a ways until you reach blah, blah, blah…”). Watch The Southern Women’s Channel YouTube videos “Sh&@ Southern Women Say” and yes, I do talk a lot like that.😊

    Crafting is grams, Kgs. Cooking I do Imperial ounces, cups, lbs, and occasionally grams. Distance is in feet, miles and kilometres.

    I’m a hot mess. Temperature is straight Fahrenheit. I know Celsius but my mind can’t keep it straight, it converts. Lol

    I am clueless in regards to Celsius. I have to look it up on Google every time to convert it.

    I know approximately the ratio. If I need exact, I look it up. It’s like km/h vs mph. I know approximately the difference. Lol

    I generally use the metric system. Inches, feet and miles were used in some coastal/harbour engineering and rail transport classes we had. When i cook or bake, recipes are sometimes in grams/mls and others in cups. I used to eyeball cups/tablespoons when baking, and had a chart for how much of common ingredients a cup can hold, say 120gr of flour, 200gr of sugar etc, but ever since getting an electronic scale i’m never going back to that! It can switch between metric and oz/lb which is cool if i ever come across a recipe in ounces. It can measure up to 5kg, but unfortunately it’s only accurate to 1 gr. Well, for just 8 euros you can’t have it all!
