Michael Puhaindran, whose wife Lo Hwei Yen was killed in the Mumbai terror attacks, will be marrying again.
The Straits Times reported today that the 40-year-old lawyer will be tying the knot with Ms Katherin Nusantara, a marketing director at City College Holdings, a private school in Bukit Merah.
According to the English daily, news of the upcoming marriage was leaked after Mr Puhaindran's father, Marina Parade grassroots leader S. Puhaindran sent out email invitations to family and friends.
He wrote in the email: "My wife and I are happy to announce that Michael will be marrying Katherin Nusantara on 1st January 2012."
Ms Nusantara is an Indonesian Chinese who was part of the steering committee at the National Youth Council's Shine Youth Festival last year, The Straits Times said.
On Nov 27, Mr Puhaindran wrote a remembrance to Ms Lo in The Sunday Times' obituary pages: "I'm doing a lot better now but you're always in my heart and I miss you immensely."
He also wrote on a Facebook page dedicated to the memory of Ms Lo that this will be the last year a formal memorial service is being held for her.
"It will be the last time that we actually do a formal memorial service and we're having it at St Teresa's Church.
"It some ways it's about coming back full circle to where the journey started for so many of us with Yen's funeral service.
"I really thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you've given me that has helped me to get to where I am," he wrote.
Ms Lo was the first Singaporean to die in an overseas terrorist attack.
She was among 166 people killed between Nov 26 and 29 in 2008, after terrorists took over the Oberoi Trident and the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower.
Her body was found on the 17th floor of Oberoi Trident hotel two days after being taken hostage by the terrorists.
