FORMER 988 deejay May Lau, divorced six years ago, announced she is now married to Nepalese headmaster Palden Moktan, China Press reported.

The 40-year-old posted her wedding photos on social media and confirmed the happy news when contacted.

Speaking on an online talk show, the former presenter with the local Chinese radio station revealed she had met Palden when she went on a solo trip to Nepal in 2017 in a bid to get over her divorce.

But the two did not start a relationship until during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Palden reached out to Lau for help in raising much-needed funds for his school and the two began working closely on an international fundraising project.

According to Lau, Palden confessed his love for her after just a month of them working together.

“I was shocked. I thought he was a monk and only then realised he had disrobed after becoming a headmaster.

“It was a misunderstanding!” she said.

The two started a long-distance relationship in 2020 for a year before Palden moved to Malaysia once the lockdown ended.

“When the movement control order was lifted, he came over. Things moved at a very practical pace, step by step towards marriage,” she said.

Lau’s wedding news was greeted with warm wishes from Internet users and her former colleagues.

> An elderly woman in China who spat and threw a cigarette at a terracotta warrior pit was heavily criticised online, Sin Chew Daily reported.

Upon investigation, museum authorities determined that the incident, which was captured on video, happened at the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, on Oct 15.

It sparked criticism of poor behaviour and lack of civic consciousness on social media.

It was reported that visitors to the museum had increased this summer, which also coincided with a rise in anti-social behaviour.

Several visitors were caught trying to steal the soil in one of the pits at the ancient archaeological site but was stopped in time by security guards.

The mausoleum is that of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor who unified a large part of what is known today as China.
