Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Guangzhou reunion...

The Pangs took the 2-hour train journey from Hong Kong to Guangzhou. "It even smells like China", Tina said as we alighted the train. And then our adventure started.

5-stars Tina checked us into the White Swan Hotel, the city's famous 5-star hotel. She warned me: "It's popular with American families coming to collect their adopted Chinese kids..." Hmmm, she wasn't joking...sooo many families and kids. Some new, some reunions...Did you know there's even a book named after the White Swan I found on Amazon?

'Hood We were in town with Dad to see his old neighborhood. That was a bit ambitious considering the directions were still resting in Tina's apartment 300 miles away. Still, we gave it our best shot and as it happens Tina asked a local man who looked a bit older than Dad. And he knew the way!? See the video's a classic.

If you hadn't heard...Guangzhou aka Canton is (in)famous for eating everything! There's nothing that isn't a delicacy. Anything that moves is liable to be sliced, diced and sauted ;-) Hahahaa. Here are some pics of our eating binge.
