Malaysian radio announcer May Lau and her Nepalese husband, headmaster Palden Moktan, recently held a second wedding ceremony in Nepal, China Press reported.

The couple, who has been dating for over three years, registered their marriage in November 2023 and held a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony in Malaysia a month later.

In an Instagram post on Sunday (April 28), Lau, 42, shared photos taken from the celebration – including one of her and Moktan dressed in traditional Nepalese attire.

“Namaste! A true ceremony of Buda & Budi (older man and woman)! Thank you to relatives and friends for coming to Nepal for this cultural exchange,” the former 988 deejay wrote.

“My uncle told me I’m officially part of his Tamang (a Tibeto-Burman ethnic group of Nepal, Southern Bhutan and North India) family!”

In a separate Instagram update, Lau posted a video of guests taking turns to stick rice on her and her husband’s forehead. This traditional custom is done as a symbol of blessing, according to non-profit organisation Ama Foundation.

“This ceremony gave everyone the opportunity to communicate and have a heart-to-heart talk. I cherish it very much!” she wrote.

This is the second time Lau has tied the knot. Her first marriage ended in divorce in 2017.
