Fun with SINGnese is an infotainment series that explores the origins of local Chinese/Dialect words. This episode discusses how the terms An Pai (plainclothes police), Zai Hu (clerk) and Hei You Tong (black oil tank) came about, and why Queen Elizabeth Walk used to be called "Gor Zhang Chiu Kar". 《新语研究所》是富有趣味性的资讯节目，和大家轻松谈论新加坡的独特华语及方言词汇。为什么便衣警探俗称为暗牌，办公室文员叫做财副？为什么旧时把放荡的女人叫做黑油桶？为什么康乐通道俗称为五丛树脚？
