In this “sporty” episode on location at much-loved Saigon pub Coolabah, we celebrate International Women’s Day with special guest Naomi Skinner (namrunsnam.com) who has spent the past 6 months running 2,000km from Hanoi to Saigon to raise money for charity.
On her rest day, she pops in and tells us over a few sneaky “rehydrating” beers about her odyssey and how she reckons roadside dogs in southern Vietnam are way more chilled than their northern counterparts who, she says, “chase to kill!”
On the panel, Matt and Mel are joined by the effervescent Jackie Lam who’s filling in for Mike this episode.
Jackie is a wine connoisseur and with her husband has grown a successful wine distribution business called RADA Vietnam (ilovewines.vn) supplying premium Australian wines to consumers Vietnam-wide.
We also find out that she loves nothing better than (with a glass of vino in hand, of course) watching her AFL Sydney Swans boys run around the field in their tighty tight shorts and flexing their rippling muscles .
We also get on The Bureau Hotline and cold-call concierges from three 5-star hotels in Saigon and ask them to recommend a bar and a restaurant to take our lovely lady for International Women’s Day.
