I can't hear a breath or a pause. My though is that the release of the ng somehow sounds like a vowel, but I don't hear that either. I'll let people whose voice it isn't weigh in.
While I was listening to it over and over again I recorded the individual word version, listened to that, decided it sounded too close to tunggha', rerecorded that, and then I got texted to go to work, and I can't listen to the recording to see if the text beep is in it. So tell me about that.
