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.

Day trips: Doris Duke and Pearl Harbor

We heard about the Polynesian Cultural Center day trip with Lu'au and dinner, but it sounded kinda cheesy so instead Tina recommended a visit to Shangri-la, the home of Doris Duke, a wealthy recluse whose home has a priceless collection of Islamic antiquities. This video shows some of the treasures that lie inside...mere mortals aren't allowed to film in the house itself, so these images are a rare treat!

As you head towards Waikiki we passed signs for Pearl Harbor. Although this wasn't really high on my Pang Family tourist list originally, I was excited to take a tour of this historic location and hear the history leading up to the attack on 7th December, 1941. There are many events that led up to this attack including the Japanese invasion of Manchuria, China which was the reason my Dad's family fled to Hong Kong. The rest is history.
