The Kurang Manis (Sugar, Less) Podcast

Bahasa Malaysia presents The Kurang Manis (Sugar, Less) Podcast, a different take on health & fitness with personalities from Asia and the Pacific.

We meet athletes, medical doctors, allied health professionals, the fitness and wellness world — you, perhaps? Join co-hosts Nikki Yeo and Jasmine Low and bring your cuppa tea! In Malaysia, it’s the Teh Tarik, made frothy by swift hand movements of a tea-pulling expert but 8tsp of condensed milk?! Kurang manis, boss! Sugar, less please…

Kurang Manis won a Motion Picture Association APAC script-to-screen prize (see credits below).
