The Chopsticks was a short-lived female duo in Hong Kong. They were the first all-female modern music singing group to be marketed and launched from Hong Kong.

They started singing in the late 1960s with HK English pop songs and were contracted with the local Crown Records between 1969 and 1972, having a release total of four LP albums and not more than 10 SP/EPs. In 1973, the duo split and both Sandra Lang & Amina went solo.
