I get the feeling that he going be lock up in some camp soon

I saw his original interview on BBC world news did you hear Tiger Chia Chub lock up his new wife she hasn’t been seen for 40 days

There is rumor she might be with child and North Koreans believe pregnant woman should not be seen or she tick off regime for only wearing flowerly brooches not Chia Pet label
