Tin Pei Ling's Kate Spade bag to go on auction
Bag has been donated to Aware's charity event; starting bid is $500
That Kate Spade bag - yes, the very same one that MP Tin Pei Ling posed with while it was still wrapped in a gift box - is now up for grabs.
The yellow handbag, which Ms Tin said she has used only a few times, has been donated to the Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware) to be auctioned in a fund-raising charity event next month.
The starting bid for the bag is $500; proceeds will go towards funding Aware's support services, which includes counselling and free legal aid for women.
Ms Tin said she was approached by Aware to put the bag up for auction in June. She said that while she was aware that the move may re-energise her critics, it was for a good cause.
