tong sui (collective term for any sweet, warm soup or custard served as a dessert at the end of a meal in Cantonese cuisine.)

糖水

(tánɡshuǐ)

A: HeyTea has started selling tong sui.

喜茶开始卖糖水了。

(xǐchá kāishǐ mài tánɡshuǐ le.)

B: Tong sui? That sweet snack from Guangdong?

糖水?广东的那种甜品吗?

(tánɡshuǐ? ɡuǎnɡdōnɡ de nàzhǒnɡ tiánpǐn ma?)

A: Yup. Stores across the country have started selling mango pomelo sago drinks. I heard that it combines mango and grapefruit.

对。全国各地的店都开始卖杨枝甘露饮品了。据说是加了芒果和西柚的。

(duì. quánɡuó ɡèdì de diàn dōu kāishǐ mài yánɡzhī ɡānlù yǐnpǐn le. jùshuō shì jiā le mánɡɡuǒ hé xīyòu de.)

B: I estimate that we'll have to wait in line to buy some. Last time I passed by a shop I wanted to buy some of their ice cream, but there were more than a hundred numbers before mine.

那估计也是要排队才能买到吧。我上次路过,想买他们家的冰激凌,前面有一百多号。

(nà ɡūjì yěshì yào páiduì cáinénɡ mǎidào ba. wǒ shànɡcì lùɡuò, xiǎnɡ mǎi tāmén jiā de bīnɡjīlínɡ, qiánmiàn yǒu yībǎi duō hào.)

A: You can order on your phone. That might be faster.

可以手机下单,可能会快点。

(kěyǐ shǒujī xiàdān, kěnénɡ huì kuàidiǎn.)
