GiangSinh Pham - Vietnamese millennial raised and absorbed in Western & Vietnamese culture | S2 Ep 5 A Vietnam Podcast

    • Personal Journals

GiangSinh is named due to her birth date of December 24th, being Vietnamese for Christmas, which she still went by until recently.

Her Vietnamese mother and father met in Indonesia where GiangSinh was born and lived there for the first 5 years of her life. After moving back to Saigon she has lived in Nha Trang, Singapore, LA and now back to Saigon again where she feels her heart belongs. 

She has worked in Hospitality and FMCG most of her adult life, starting out at the prestigious Six Senses resort.

Currently, she is Head of Sales for Bira91; a beer imagined in India, brewed in Belgium, sold worldwide and currently making inroads into the crowded Vietnamese market.

We talk about her parents tumultuous relationship, owing to their different backgrounds and family pressures, and how that affected her growing up; living in different places around the world and the experiences gleaned from that and of course... alcohol. From the mass consumption of beer in Vietnam to the plethora of new cocktail bars opening in Saigon and our favourite types of whisky. 

She also believes that dogs are better than humans! Biscuit agrees.
