Re: Take the Anti-Piracy Pledge

No offense...but you seem to think you have more power and influence than you actually do. Mexico was once known for their bribes but they soon realized it backfired on them with limited tourism. Today there are more tourist in Mx than ever and the countries increasing prices have not reduced it and just lead to a healthier tourist economy.

Re: Take the Anti-Piracy Pledge

I am surprised how many have read the previous comment and failed to remonstrate.

Currently aboard is the owner of one of the largest sail boats of all S.E Asia.

The climate here is changing fast and the direction is towards the rule of law.

We, as larger sailboat owners with crews, both know the most dangerous waters in the world are in the USA. It is infested with sharks that swallow entire sailboats for breakfast.

Trial lawyers.

Just one minor rope burn in the USA is cause for a suit and tie visit in front of a black robe.

How does owning a big boat make any of this relevant? Is there a point here? Your guest has even more dough than you. Tell me why I should care. Thanks in advance.

Probably because, like myself, they were not able to understand it.

No, sir. My apologies to you. I thought he was referring to his own previous post, not yours. I even misunderstood that one then. I'm not having a good day it seems.

Re: Take the Anti-Piracy Pledge

Just having a laugh Coops.

I get a kick out of those visiting sophomore sailors who believe that they now know enough to solve a culture's inequalities and like excited puppies.... can't believe that we are not in awe of their brilliance.

I live in the Philippines.... I love the Philippines.... warts and all.... I accept that they do things differently and like a good house guest... I don't impose my own house rules.

Yepper. For others:
How to make it

  • Cook mungo with the water until it has turned into a thick paste and the mungo is mashed. Add the sugar. Chill until thoroughly cool.
  • Meanwhile, make doughs. by mixing all the ingredients for dough 1 and separtely dough 2.
  • Relax dough 1 in the refrigerator for about 10 mins. Roll out into a long rectangle about 24 x 10. Spread dough 2 thinly on dough 1. Roll as for jellyroll. Cut about 1/3 inch thick disks.
  • Roll disks to about 3", fill with filling, gather the edges and place on parchment lined sheet pans seam side down. Eggwash and bake for about 15 mins . Cool
See? Easy peasy. http://www.grouprecipes.com/78031/hopia-mungo.html
