Monomials' list for Laurent polynomials

Given a Laurent polynomial, is there a method to list its monomials? For example, for the polynomial $f(x,y) = x/y + y +3/x$ in the ring $R[x^\pm,y^\pm]$, it should give a list of the form [x/y,y,3/x]. Something similar exists for polynomials, it is given by monomials().

Like this

sage: x, y = LaurentPolynomialRing(QQ, 'x,y').gens()
sage: f = x+2/y
sage: list(f)
[(1, x), (2, y^-1)]

Many thanks. If I previously introduced x,y as symbolic variables, is there a way to covert the elements in the list back to symbolic variables?
