    it does bare a resemblance to paph prime child, but i was thinking stonei as well.... when i say we were doing flower therapy i may have meant to say we possibly could have been a bit too much into her antidepressants stumbling around the flower market....THAT'S THERAPEUTIC DAMNIT!!!! so when i bought this i wasnt in the right frame of mind to be bothered with family history.... dont actually remember coming home that day... yet another testament to the fleet of understanding taxi drivers in taipei!
