TAIWAN-based Malaysian singer Gary Chaw has registered his marriage with his girlfiend Wu Sou Ling at the Putrajaya National Registration Department, reported Nanyang Siang Pau.
The daily reported that the Sabah-born singer and his Taiwanese girlfriend took their marriage vows at 9.05am on Tuesday. Chaw’s manager Andy and his mother witnessed the ceremony.
The couple’s two-month-old baby boy Joe was also present.
Chaw was “reprimanded” by the registration officer right before the ceremony started for wearing jeans, to which Chaw quipped: “She just doesn’t know my character.”
Chaw, who was once widely speculated to be gay, shot to fame in the Chinese entertainment industry with the release of his Mandarin version of Karyn White’s Superwoman.
He won the Best Male Mandarin Singer at the 19th Taiwan Golden Melody Awards, said to be the Chinese equivalent of the Grammys in July this year.
> Sin Chew Daily reported that MCA vice-president Datuk Liow Tiong Lai had lambasted Malay daily Utusan Malaysia for twisting his comment on the development of Malaysian economy.
“Its heading on the frontpage was very misleading and its report was obviously racialised when compared to other Malay and English newspapers,” he said.
Liow said he did not suggest the mandatory 30% bumiputra equity in main board companies be abolished.
What he said was that the Malaysian economy should no longer be framed by quota system but should instead increase its competitiveness and efficiency.
“I was just suggesting that the quota system should be opened but I did not say that it should be abolished now or immediately,” he said.
