Long explanation:

The phrase 'พอ...ก็... (phɔɔ... gɔ̂...)' is frequently utilized in Thai language to illustrate that one action takes place right after another, mirroring the English 'as soon as... then...'. In this pattern, 'พอ (phɔɔ)' is used before the first action and 'ก็ (gɔ̂)' is used before the second action. This expression is often employed when the second action is a direct consequence of the first.
