If this is true, it is a shock. He lost Laila just last year and it came with such a sudden news. A few points of thought:-
His image of being a nice husband to Laila was almost a joke. Perhaps he was too afraid of Laila and behaved as a mouse.
Why 74 years old and 30+? No doubt that he likes young woman. Viagra or Pokok Bintangor?
Why from Lebanon? This is another doubt on why the woman has to be imported and how he got to know her.
Lastly, if the woman is again much taller than him. As usual, a habit.

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 18 — As speculation mounts over Sarawak’s polls, state Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud has instead gone ahead to marry a Lebanese, believed to be a former flight attendant, in Kuching last night.
Umno’s Utusan Malaysia and political sources said the 74-year-old widower’s private wedding was officiated by Sarawak Mufti Kipli Yassin. The wedding reception is scheduled for tonight, the newspaper reported.
Asked to comment on the reported marriage after a dinner and dialogue with Chinese associations last night, the newspaper quoted the chief minister as saying:”Not yet.”
Abdul Taib’s wife Puan Sri Laila Taib died of cancer in April 2009. They had been married since 1959 and have four children — Jamilah, Mahmud Abu Bekir, Sulaiman Abdul Rahman and Hanifah apart from 15 grandchildren.
