    Haha I don’t know why I cried watching the video. Wow Petra has grown into one gutsy girl, I envy her. She used to be just running around a playground and speaking Mandarin! OMG.

      Haha, yes, that’s true! She wants a mohawk again and is asking me to buy some clippers every day. Maybe there’s a second part of this video coming!
