刘家铭 – Dominic Low Kay Meng
A name is what your parents gave you is also what parents hope and best wishes for you. For this reason, my son’s name is 刘家铭, Dominic Low, is my expectation of him.

Why does this happen to us? What have I done wrongly?
My hubby said he will always be our first son. By the way, the name has another meaning to it which is to – 铭记于心
