Anything that even slightly reminds me of BTS' aesthetic in Blood, Sweat & Tears just gets me shook...sooo basically while at @RosewoodBeijing I was shook & triggered at every turn 🦋Every nook & cranny of this beautiful hotel was put together by the design Gods #RosewoodBeijing#partner sp
Pictured here: 1 of 7 private dining rooms at The House of Dynasties restaurant inside of @RosewoodBeijing. Each room is meticulously designed to reflect a Chinese dynasty, with the decor and show plates representing ancient eras of Chinese history.
_ @RosewoodBeijing House of Dynasties features intimate live cooking stations where chefs prepare finely crafted Cantonese cuisine for guests to feast like emperors ...in other words things get lit 🥂

@RosewoodBeijing // As a travel destination, China is known for many amazing things, but tropical pools?! Never in a million years did I think my best "tropical" pool experience would be in China, but it happened thanks to @RosewoodBeijing hotel! #RosewoodBeijing#partner sp
The pool at @RosewoodBeijing hotel is a true hidden oasis. Let me tell u guys about some of my fave things about this place: it features a stunning glass dome roof where you can literally swim under the stars, 5 star vip poolside service as you relax in luxurious cabanas that are surrounded by exotic trees, heated stone walkways leading to hidden rainfall showers (this was my fave & u can see it in action on @ZoDaily).

While traveling in China, I learned that peacocks are a symbol of auspiciousness. It's said that peacocks have the special ability to ingest poisonous snakes & toxic plants; transforming them into nourishment without harm. Folklore goes further by describing that the colors of the peacock's feathers become even more vibrant and beautiful with the poison from snakes. Similarly in our own lives, we should train ourselves to transform ignorance into enlightenment, hatred into positive feelings & utilize the obstacles we face to emerge even better than before🦋

Any foreign films that I should watch? I don't understand why so many ppl avoid movies w/ subtitles, maybe it has something to do with cultural disconnect...but honestly many of my favorite films are from other countries. I recently saw The Wailing & it was...well I won't spoil it for u.

Yes. What #SteveHarvey said on his TV show about Asians is horrible, antiquated & untrue (for myself and maaaaany other ppl I know) It's always that much more disappointing when regressive rhetoric comes from an otherwise very talented & charismatic individual.
Am I surprised? No. People do & say what they think they know. Jokes are jokes, but when these false ideas are reinforced at the expense of a group that lacks a mainstream voice? Its overall impact is much more insidious. The reality is this: Asians (especially Asian males) are invisible in mainstream American culture. Of course people are going to have an extremely distorted view about us. Thankfully trends are shifting- hello new media globalization.
This post may or may not be immediately relatable to you, but for perspective: everyone wants to be acknowledged, respected, heard & understood. That we can all understand. It doesn't matter what group you identify with, being understood is an innate human desire. This is why representation is important, to be represented is to be understood as a human being- maybe not completely - but at least that much more.
In the end, the negative things people choose to do or say with their time is really just a grain of sand in the bigger scheme of things. The beauty of the digital age & new media is that we can manifest our own platform to create a positive voice, one that challenge old ideas. This is why I did the viral social experiment "Asian Guys VS White Girls" video on YouTube & why I continue to find innovative ways to break stereotypes & encourage progressive change. In the future I hope to continue to evolve my platform, but the overall message will still be the advancement of deeper human connections, positivity & understanding.
If you've taken the time to read this far I just want to leave you with this gem: be proactive in your passions instead of wasting time sending hate to people who are willfully ignorant & who quite frankly don't know any better. There is more to be gained by being compassionate & empathetic than returning hate w/ hate- and that goes for life in general
And yes I'm working on something really special for u guys

Moments @GrandHyattTokyo#LivingGrand sp
1 of my fave things about @GrandHyattTokyo is that it's attached directly to a massive multi-mall in Roppongi Hills Tokyo. I've never seen anything like it; a huge maze of an indoor/outdoor mall (literally got lost at every turn) + a separate food mall. Yes I said food mall. In the U.S. we have food courts, in Japan they have food malls; floors and floors of culinary glory
Some of the many highlights of this hotel: lifestyle destination in heart of Roppongi, 200 pieces of art spread out through the hotel with a mix of Japanese & foreign artists, a total of 10 restaurants & bars! + a key feature: @GrandHyattTokyo has redefined the bathing experience in hotels, introducing the philosophy of Japanese bathing by having the bathroom occupying more than 1/4 of the standard room space

Some real talk about who I am & why I do what I do: In the past year I've been fortunate enough to make several trips to Asia for work & collabs... as I'm sitting here in Beijing, I took a moment to reflect (albeit superficial) that...DAMN there are so many interesting good looking people here; I feel like I'm in a K-pop mv tbh (cue someone in the comments missing the point entirely & saying Beijing =\= kpop ) the point is...it's surreal for me in a way because growing up in the United States, there's always been a lack of visibility & representation in our media. If you are reading this & nodding your head - I am speaking to you. Take a discerning look; mediocrity is rewarded for those that are part of the status quo & for the rest of us we have to kick a55 20x harder to even be on a close playing field. Im sure many of you can relate. I never truly felt like part of the culture because I never saw myself in the people being promoted in mainstream media. It's this undercurrent of invisibility which drives me to create my own platform here on social media & beyond. I want to be a catalyst, break stereotypes, introduce new ideas, create dialogue & set forth change. Not just for myself, but for the big picture. People sometimes ask me: "why do you do what you do?" This is why. I am ever evolving, but as I am doing so I am building a family of people who share the same passions & life ideologies. People who are tired of the status quo. People like yourself. I thank u & love u for being an active part of OUR journey.
