Welcome. Thanks for visiting Green Schug.

I started Green Schug to share my passions for food, cooking, and writing. Green Schug advocates for all things sustainability. 

About me

Hi, I'm Hien.


I was born and raised in Vinh Long, a small town located in the Mekong Delta area, south of Vietnam (though I never learned to swim until recently). I lived there for almost 20 years until I moved to Ho Chi Minh city (also called Sai Gon) in 2010.

In 2015, I moved to Malaysia, where I met my cat, Alex. I'm now back home in Vietnam. 

I'm inspired when business, creativity and technology come together.

I love to read. 

Quite scientific minded, and not afraid of challenging the status quo.


I love travelling and have travelled to some parts of the world. I have been to some countries in South East Asia, Hong Kong, Australia and Iran. Living overseas in Malaysia has also made it possible for me to experience many cultures, especially food, eating new food and learning how to prepare the food. 

I have a cat. 

I enjoy short walks at the beach, strong coffee, and live music.
