      1. Pinch of Yum Logo

        Wow. Wanker alert. Get a life, idiot.

        There was no point to your comment, except for some affectionate of egoistic ego-boost. How about you stop crumbling added people’s time with such crud.

        Yes, my animadversion may (also) not be necessary, but I’m academic you’re a ‘fly-by-nighter’ who spends time trolling abstruse bulletin boards in adjustment to aerate your own faculty of cocky worth; so go ahead, adore it, while added bodies alarm you on it.

          1. Pinch of Yum Logo

            My uncle was Filipino, and he was a able cook. He acclimated to accomplish this often, and it was a ancestors favorite. As to it actuality “authentic”, there are as abounding recipes for pancit as there are Filipino cooks. It’s affectionate of like “authentic” Italian spaghetti sauce–or “gravy” as some alarm it.

        1. Pinch of Yum Logo

          Pardon me all to about for accepting an opinion. I was responding anon to the adolescent who referred to it as ‘authentic’ which I rather doubt. Again you alarm me names. This absolute armpit actually loves Lindsay and she can do no wrong, it seems. It is a attestation to her success that you are such a defender, but I agnosticism she would acknowledge anyone calling others names like ‘wanker’ and ‘idiot’.

            Instead of craven borsch my mom uses craven borsch and adds copse ear augment and babyish corn.

            Well! To begin, I don’t acknowledge the armpit giving 5 stars after MY input, acknowledge you actual much! But—- as far as the one face and name-calling because addition said they doubted it was “authentic” – in THAT person’s acquaintance it may not BE “authentic”. I served in So Korea for a year and a bisected and ADMIRED the aliment – alike “authentic” Korean restaurants in the US don’t consistently accomplish the aliment the aforementioned way I alone had it. And not EVERY abode THERE served it the aforementioned way. What’s up with the abhorrence and name-calling? WHY was THAT necessary? WHO’s the “troll” here? It abiding isn’t Chris! BTW – I was gonna accord 4 stars cuz I’ve not approved it yet – but the armpit itself gave me no best – IT says 5. Acceptable ego-boost I guess.

Noodles captivated in approach leaves and a bi-weekly (maybe from Manila?) We don’t apperceive area it came from as the girls would abandon and appear aback with the aliment that was soooo good. I’m activity to accept to accomplish some of this and of advance get a six backpack of San Miguel beer. OH Boy! Now that’s accurate pansit aback in 1966.
