Dainty?

I've run out of idea on what url address to put for my brand new blog. Not wanting to use my own named, i tried to googled for deardiary.blogspot.com, ladyd.blogspot.com (d - for dzuhriah okay, am not trying to be Princess Diana here), to name a few, and all are taken.

Suddenly it came across my mind to use the word DAINTY - not because i'm beautiful, charming, delicate whatsoever, wakakaka, sila muntah dengan statement ini. I have my own story for this.

The word first came to my vocabulary when i was in form two. I still remember vividly that my then Set II English Class teacher, Mr. Gerard, request us to come out with a word starting with the initial letter of our name. I went blank. All i can think of was all the negative words such as dirty, dead, deaf. I flipped through the dictionary, and found the word dainty which i admired sooo much. Then here it is the born of thedainty.blogspot.com. ;p

Here is some definition on the words dainty from Dictionary.Com if you must know;

adjective
1.of delicate beauty; exquisite: a dainty lace handkerchief.
2.pleasing to the taste and, often, temptingly served or delicate; delicious: dainty pastries.
3.of delicate discrimination or taste; particular; fastidious: a dainty eater.
4.overly particular; finicky.
noun
5.something delicious to the taste; a delicacy.



*Update*

Hurmm, betul la elcy, *scanning through the above definition, seems like the word dainty is mostly applicable for food. Untuk menyedapkan hati, i googled on another definitions for dainty;

Main Entry: dainty
