Just a word of advice, it might be better to post this question under the Portuguese section of the site :) Usually, what I do is relate "de" or its other forms (plus article a and o) "da" and "do" with the english word "of". To signify origin or what it is made out of. For example, "Bolo de chocolate", could be literally translated to "cake (made) of chocolate" Or someone could ask me where I'm from, and I would say: "Eu sou da Asia" With Asia having the article of "a" so de + a = da. I hope that answers your questions. (And I also hope I didn't make any mistakes in my explanation :P)
