Fun with SINGnese is an infotainment series that explores the origins of local Chinese/Dialect words. This episode discusses how the terms Kiasu, Kaypoh, and Chao You Yu (fried sotong, meaning to be sacked) came about, and why Singapore General Hospital used to be called "Si Pai Po". 《新语研究所》和大家轻松谈论新加坡的独特华语及方言词汇。为什么我们用鸡婆来形容多管闲事的人?为什么用炒鱿鱼来形容被雇主辞退?怕输一词是怎么来的?为什么中央医院也被称为“四排埔”?
