Faux ami! Dutch mogen means "to be allowed to", not "may". And meer is "more". It more or less translate litterally as "Is it okay if there's a little more?" Though knowing Dutch, I suppose if it's an expression it means something completely different :))) . Where do you use that, in the market? :)) Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
