UPDATE: Now featured on the Viddler Development Blog. Thanks Colin Devroe!
In this awesome 25th episode of theorycast, Modcentric (aka Georgiana) and I travel around Singapore tasting donuts of all sorts. It’s a dangerous mission, but someone has to do it! If you already don’t know, Singapore’s currently experiencing a donut craze, as I’ve covered here and more recently, here. Ironically, the Sunday Times just did a full page review of donuts around Singapore!
While heart-stopping sugar bombs await us, I get to learn more about Georgiana, who blogs and podcasts about music from the 60s, especially ones from Singapore. A lot of people don’t realize that Singapore had an amazing musical era back in the 60s, where some bands were as popular as the Beatles! Interestingly, being in a band in Singapore today doesn’t seem as hip as back in the hey-days.
In this half-hour travelogue, you’ll learn more about Georgiana’s blog and how she produces her podcasts. Incidentally, she uses Podomatic, which is a fairly popular site for uploading and sharing your own podcasts. She mentions Audio Hijack, a popular Mac application for rewiring audio in and out of your Mac.
As tagged in the video above, here are the donut places we tried in chronological sequence:
1. Traditional Malay Donuts @ Clementi (failed, arrived late)
2. Our Chinese Donuts @ Clementi (3/5 stars)
3. Cream Puffs @ Beard Papa’s (3.5/5 stars)
4. Spicy Cheese @ Double Chocolate Donuts @ Donut Factory (3/5 & 4/5 stars)
5. Pop Doh donut @ Takashimaya (5/5 stars!)
6. Mighty Almonds donut @ Vinco, Vivocity (2.5/5 stars)
By the end of the day, we felt pretty sick, so you’ll get some health tips from me if you ever want to do anything as crazy as this!
