With the return of blue skies in Singapore, we are also back to regular programming on Instagram: no more masked-face selfies from celebrities and laments about the horrible air quality in Singapore, and plenty of random happy snaps – just the way we like it. In this week’s line-up, we bid farewell (albeit temporarily) to a young actor who’s due to serve the nation and go on a #throwback tizzy with a few of our favourite celebs, which includes a really old picture of a scrawny looking Jay Chou - all that and more in this week’s Insta-buzz!

Side profile? Check. Back view? Check. Head shot? Check. Fist profile? Check.

Two months on and we’re still waiting for Joanne and Qi Yuwu to do a reveal of their darling daughter’s looks! Currently hosting a new programme, Baby Steps, to chronicle her journey to motherhood, Joanne’s (@joannepeh) been sharing all sorts of cute snaps – including one with her baby girl whose face is - obviously - not seen in the picture. To be fair, the couple did say they may not share pictures of their baby for privacy reasons, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed still!

Catch Joanne in Baby Steps starting Oct 20 (Tues), 8 pm on Channel 8.

Celebrities’ famous children: Zed and Aden

In the meantime, before we get a gander of baby Qi, we’ll have to settle for cute snaps of Christopher Lee and Fann Wong’s Zed and Kate Pang and Andie Chen’s Aden. From the looks of it, the two same-age boys (Aden's a couple months older than Zed) are now playmates too. How cute! More pictures of their play dates please. 

PS: With the boys sporting similar bowl cuts and chubby cheeks, don't you think they sort of look like a pair of twins - fraternal twins, maybe?

Andie Chen and Kate Pang go on honeymoon after marrying for two years

And folks, this is why you’d be seeing infrequent (we guess) updates of Aden for the time being. With mum and dad on the road and far away honeymooning in New Zealand, two years after tying the knot, the only snaps they’ll be posting will be funny vacay snaps and couple pictures of their time in the land of the Hobbit.

Tracy Lee goes on a vacation

Speaking of holidays, we’ve got another actress soaking up the sun, fresh air and fabulous weather in California and Nevada, going on a road trip from Yosemite National Park to the Death Valley. Tracy’s (@tracyleemeileng) trip did not happen without a hitch however. We learned that the airline had baggage problems during her flight to Los Angeles and Tracy had to live without a suitcase for the first four days until she was finally reunited with her silver spinner on Wednesday. Phew!

Another artiste who is away from this little red dot at the moment is Desmond (@thedesmondtan) and the cast of Cold Case. While work trips aren’t vacations per se, a change of work environments spell new experiences in foreign land, just like Desmond and his veggie encounters featuring the huge radish and the “legendary white corn” in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

Throwback with Zoe Tay and Wong Lilin

Thanks to a super ardent fan of Ah Jie Zoe (@zoetay10), we’ve been seeing a fair bit of old #throwback pictures featuring the Queen of Caldecott Hill during her heydays. This week’s include a magazine cover shoot featuring then-actress Lilin (@lilinwong) too, when they co-starred in a drama called Rising Expectations in 1997.

Romeo Tan misses time spent ‘down under’ in Melbourne

Has it been a week since filming of ‘Dream Makers 2’ wrapped in Melbourne? As the unofficial BTS photographer on set who spent more time taking pictures of his co-stars than of himself, this week we’re treated to a few snaps featuring Romeo (@romeotan) himself in the picture.

Stay tuned to more upcoming content from Toggle’s visit to Melbourne for ‘Dream Makers 2’ too!

Is Michelle Chong working on a new project?

All good things must come to an end like Channel 5’s The Noose, after seven seasons on air. But wait, we spy a new satirised ‘fan girl’ character on her Instagram feed… a new project in the pipelines perhaps? Only 15 seconds of footage and we already love Ke Lian and sympathise with her non-existent luck with celebs, but first can we have The Lulu movie

Cast of Life – Fear Not sees red

You know Chinese New Year’s round the corner (even if it’s a good three months away) when celebrities are all dressed up in matchy-matchy festive colours, like the cast of upcoming 7.30 pm Ch8 drama Life – Fear Not. PS: We’re really feeling Carrie Wong and Aloysius Pang’s twinning OOTD look and “mood” shot - no wonder they’re hyped as the next “IT” couple on TV.

Life – Fear Not debuts October 19 on Channel 8 at 7.30 pm.

Special mention: PM Lee Hsien Loong documents the return of blue skies

Finally! Blue! Skies! To be honest, we were prepared for an avalanche of pictures on our Instagram feed documenting the return of blue skies in Singapore after the nation suffered from an extended period of horrible haze conditions, but the only blue-sky picture we spotted on our feed was one by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (@leehsienloong) - who did it with good reason too. PM Lee may not be a ‘local artiste’, but he’s definitely a social media celebrity in his own right.

And that’s all for this week’s Insta-buzz. Till next time, folks!
