My first DC handbag

I love handbags and own many. Handbags have been one of the necessities of life for women. It is important to have the items that one use often close at hand. Some mandatory articles found in my handbags include purse (with cash and credit cards), iPhone 4, iPad2 and a book.

Creating my own brand handbag is my dream. This dream has came true. Presenting my very own DC handbag. What's unique about this handbag? It's edible! It's a cake! A handbag cake. 


I was excited to attend the Design-A-Handbag-Cake workshop by Sugar Inc recently. The class is being taught by Anna Chan. 

Although mine is a little wonky, I am quite pleased that I managed to finish my cake. I am amazed that it actually looks like a bag and it's purty!

D is for Dalyn

Given names are usually chosen by our parents and given at birth. They often tell us more about the parents than the owner of the name.

I love the name bestowed by my parents - 麗萍 (Li Ping). My family adopted traditional naming schemes. This is a pattern using generation names as part of two-character given name. Li is the generation name given to me and female cousins in my Chia family.

Three years ago, I was blessed to choose my baptised name. At that time, I was known as Lynn. But I wanted a name that I will be proud of. A name that become part of my personality. A unique name that will stand the test of time.

Dalyn! Part of my email address since millennium year. Dalyn\d(a)-lyn, dal-yn\as a boy's name is a variant of Daylon (American). I didn't know this is a name, let alone it's a male name. Dalyn originated in English and the meaning of the name is a historical blacksmith with supernatural powers. I don't believe in such powers.

I feel this name is a gift from my Heavenly Father, even long before I got to know Him. Isn't life wonderful? So, D is for Dalyn (pronounced as 'de-lyn').
