I have a question regarding changing my last name legally in Malaysia after married.

I am Malaysian, Chinese and been working aboard for a few years. Recently, I got married to my New Zealand husband and we got legally registered in New Zealand. As part of the heritage, I would like to carry my husband's last name as the respect to their family, may I know if is possible to change my last name legally in Malaysia?

I don't plan to give up my Malaysian passport as my family still in Malaysia, all I want is just changing my last name to my husband's. What kind of procedure I have to go through and if is better if I hiring a lawyer to handle this for me.

Please advice, much appreciated.
