PETALING JAYA, MALAYSIA: Director, comedian and actor Harith Iskandar Musa ended his bachelorhood when he tied the knot with his doctor and part-time-model girlfriend Jezamine Lim.

The 44-year-old Harith and 27-year-old Jezamine, who is of Chinese-Indian parentage, had a simple akad nikah (marriage solemnisation) ceremony at Kota Damansara yesterday, reported mStar.

The bridegroom presented RM300 as mas kahwin, a Carat Club ring as well as hantaran worth RM50,000 (S$21,385).

His delegation led by his close friend Hans Isaac also handed over seven trays of gifts, including sirih junjung and a copy of the Quran to Jezamine.

In turn, the bride presented nine trays of gifts, including a Louis Vuitton necktie, Dunhill perfume, fruits and Paatchi chocolate.Harith told reporters he kept remembering his late parents throughout the marriage ceremony.

His father Musa Mohamad died on Feb 26 at the age of 78, while his mother Farida Jane Musa, 83, died three weeks later.

"Before her last breath, my mother said that she loved Jezamine very much. I could feel their presence. My parents' birthdays fall this month and we chose our big day today in remembrance of them," he said.

Harith added that Jezamine received strong objection from her family as she had to convert into a Muslim but their love for each other persevered.

The couple got engaged last Valentine's Day after getting to know each other through Facebook and courting for a year.

Due to his tight schedule preparing for Cuci The Musical 2, Harith said they would put their honeymoon on hold until after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Some 100 guests were invited to enjoy food sponsored by the couple's restaurant named Samsara at Taman Sri Hartamas in Kuala Lumpur. -The Star/ANN
