The Sugar, Less Podcast

The Kurang Manis (Sugar, Less) Podcast gives a different take on health & fitness. Team AFT goes in search of personalities across Asia and the Pacific, meeting athletes, medical doctors, allied health professionals, the fitness and wellness world. Join co-hosts Nikki Yeo and Jasmine Low and bring your cuppa tea! Inspired by a delicious steamy hot Malaysian Teh Tarik made frothy by swift hand movements of a tea-pulling expert, the duo strike gold with a realisation that a typical cuppa there, is made with 8tsp of condensed milk?! Kurang manis, boss! Sugar, less please…

Kurang Manis (Sugar, Less) won a Motion Picture Association APAC script-to-screen workshop consolation prize in 2019. Then, the pandemic dropped in and the documentary was put on hold. Meanwhile, a podcast was brought to life! Enjoy the first season!
