HAPPY COUPLE: Larry and May posing for photographs in Kuchingyesterday, when they registered their marriage. The weddingreceptions in Kuching and Miri will be held later.

KUCHING: It was more than a marriage of a couple in love; it was a union of two of the most powerful families in Sarawak. 

When Sarawak's youngest assistant minister Larry Sng Wei Shien, 27, married May Ting, 29, it was also a union of business and politics. Larry is the son of businessman-politician Sng Chee Hua while May is the eldest daughter of top Sarawak businessman Ting Pek Khiing. 

The couple were at the Kuching Marriage Registry yesterday to register their marriage. Wedding receptions here and in Miri will be held later. 

When he sang a song in Iban – Nuan Menian Diati Aku (You are Always in My Heart) – during the last election campaign in May, he certainly captured the hearts of his predominantly-Iban constituents in Pelagus. But it was only May's heart that mattered yesterday. 

Larry, who studied at the London School of Economics, is the Parti Rakyat Sarawak state assemblyman for Pelagus (taking over from his father), assistant minister in the Chief Minister's Office, and Industrial Development and Economic Planning assistant minister. 

His wife has a Master's in commerce from an Australian university.
