2015 is ending on a sweet sweet note for Elvin Ng who, fresh from bagging two trophies at the recent PPCTV MediaCorp Awards, ushered in his 10th year in showbiz and pre-celebrated his 35th birthday (December 23) in the company of his official fanclub, Elvinolgy, over the weekend. The double-milestone celebration was dubbed a royal affair which required attendees to dress up in formal attire, including the birthday boy who came in his best birthday outfit – a navy blue tuxedo, no less.

As he turns 35 tomorrow (happy birthday, Elvin!), we remember five other notable milestones that happened in his life this year, with more to come in 2016!

There was a spam of baby pictures on Elvin’s Instagram account when he became an uncle to a baby girl called Nicole this year. Like most proud uncles and aunties do, the actor documented the cutest and funniest moments (including unglam pictures like that one time she had food smeared all over her mouth) of little Nicole’s growing up stages and readily shared them on the world wide web.

Our favourite picture of the duo so far? That picture of Elvin accosting a reluctant baby, who was also on the brink of tears, for a selfie (see picture on the left).

He never understood the fuss and lure Korean dramas had over TV viewers and was finally enlightened when he watched kimchi land’s hit TV series from 2014, You Who Came From The Star, for his role in Sealed With A Kiss. He even had to parody as Professor Do Min Joon and got the character’s look down pat with a big coat and onion head ‘do.

PS: Elvin, if you’re game enough for it, we’ve got another K-drama to recommend you – our favourite series of 2015: She Was Pretty.

After what seemed like eons, Elvin finally got down to setting up his very own, official (verified!) Facebook fan page on the social networking giant’s site and actively updates it with photos, videos and random musings. We reckon it won’t be soon before he learns how to connect with fans via the livestream function, like most of his peers already do so. Time to level up!

“To jump or not to jump,” wrote Elvin, as he contemplated on doing the unimaginable during a recent tour trip to Cairns, Australia. In case you’re wondering, he overcame his fear of heights (although it took a fair bit of cajoling in mid-air) and took a leap of faith from 14,000 feet above the ground like a (hysterically-screaming) good sport. Good job!

Hmm, we wonder what’s next on his bucket list…

The actor has come a long way since his Hey Gorgeous! days in 2004 (see above pictures taken during his days as a contestant), which would not have been possible without the ardent support from his faithful fans in Elvinology. The appreciative actor picked up the tab from their birthday and anniversary bash to thank fans for their support over the years. We were told the momentous occasion was also attended by two Cambodia fans who had specially flown down for it. Aww, how sweet.
