  1. Hi Min Min

    菜 谱 里 加 了 一 些 新 的 甜 点 。

    I can’t get the pinying correctly and clearly of these two
    words “菜 谱” Only 菜 is sounded but not 谱” If they are
    pronounced together, is it “Chai Poi”

    “里” is also not sounded out. Please get check it out
    and get back.

    Thanks.

  2. I say, Min Min, you are great. I got the pinyin right
    this time when I checked out the site given by you.
    It says in 2 speeds, one moderate and another much
    slower in “菜 谱 里” character by character [cài pǔ lǐ ]

    Also thanks for the other enquiries that you have
    clarified to my safisfaction. I understand all your
    explanations.

    Best regards.
