Together with her hedgehog Wèi-Wèi, she practices tai chi, decorates her room with chinese lanterns and scrolls, and her late mother's Chinese doll collection. She leaves out a drawing of a pagoda for her father, and is delighted to find he has spent all night constructing to her plans. Fleur de Lotus undertakes to raise money for her dream, a trip to China, homeland of her deceased mother.
