    3.例句:Despite his advice, I decided to buy it. (即使佢勸阻,我都係買左呢件野)

    4.despite myself = 忍唔住;例:When I saw him, I just laughed despite myself. (見到佢時我忍唔住笑出o黎)

    5.Despite / in spite of 要後跟名詞,但有時件事太複雜/冇個合用o既名詞,就可以用Despite the fact that 開頭,跟住用一句完整句子就ok。如:Despite the fact that his whole family had come from Japan to accompany him and brought his favorite things along, he was still unhappy.


    7.Jack o既經歷慘痛,但我忍唔住笑左出o黎
