Long explanation:

In Vietnamese, adjectives can be used together with ordinal numbers followed by 'sau' to indicate the order of items or events that happened sequentially. 'Này' means 'this'. The adjective describes the quality or characteristic of the item or event, the ordinal number indicates its order, and 'sau' emphasizes the happening of the event after another event or item.
