    例句

    豆爽应该在三分钟内吃完。否则碰到口水,里头的淀粉很快就会分解,豆爽就会变得水水的,不好吃。(《联合早报》,11/01/2019)

    SAMPLE SENTENCE

    Tau suan is best eaten within three minutes, as the starch in the soup breaks down quickly when it comes into contact with saliva. This, in turn, will cause the soup to become watery and lose its appeal. (Lianhe Zaobao, 11/01/2019)
