S: Cos now it's time for the new stuff. ML said …

M: 我打算买些新的 wǒ dǎsuàn mǎi xiē xīn de. 些 XIE xiē means ‘some',xiē.

‘a few' or maybe ‘a little', depending on the context.

M: For example, 只有这一些了 there's only these. zhǐyǒu zhèi yì xiē le. Say it,

S: Now with ML, I intend to buy some new ones. Say it with her, and note that
we know we're talking about clothes, so, as in English, it's not necessary to say
‘clothes'.
