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.

Chiang Kai-shek Memorial and Longshan Temple

Daniel picked me up at 7.30am for a Taiwanese traditional breakfast. Wow! I thought we'd have rice congee, but apart from the fried doughnut, everything was different to a Cantonese breakfast. The doughnut was offered in a flaky sesame pastry sandwich...the congee was replaced by a eggy soup with shrimps and spring onions. Delish! I'm hungry writing about this!

That set me up for a great day sightseeing around Taipei city, foldout map and change in my pocket for the subway. Check it out. Chiang Kai-shek Memorial and Longshan Temple. Amazing stuff.

The Buddhist parade and ceremonies are very cool! I was truly moved by the worship and sat silently as the crowd followed the prayer script. Check my video.
