So, how much? - Only fish and water mimosa, right? - Yes, and a bottle of water. That’s all. Already have pork. Just add fish. - Tuna stewed with meat is delicious. - Yes, agree.

[Inaudible - engine sound] What? Have you opened it yet? Yes. Why don’t you take off the seal? [Inaudible - engine sound] What? Is it big? Are we stopping at the station to fill up with fuel? How long's our fuel gonna last? Very little left. Come have lunch, Nhiễu. Boat 47 is that one. Will we have lunch down here or there? It’s too windy there. [Inaudible - radio sounds] Have lunch. [Inaudible - Loud ambient noise] Whose operator is that? Mr. Hieu’s? It's his? It's his, Huyền? What? What did you say? Put chili pepper in here.
