Insta-buzz: The best this week (Nov 7-13)

Love, loss and an abundance of envy-inducing overseas vacations – here’s what we learned from our local celebs’ feeds over the past seven days:

In what is probably the most honest and open break-up announcement we’ve ever seen come from a public figure, the Lush 99.5FM jockey shared a sweet photo of her and her now-former beau Justin Vanderstraaten accompanied with a lengthy caption explaining the situation.

“We’ve been on the rocks since May this year, but have been trying to make things work,” she wrote, stressing that it was not a third party nor falling out of love (nor, at least what Rozz would like to believe, their 12-year age gap) that caused the demise of their relationship, which began in early 2014. “A part of me still feels resentment that we are not what we used to be – but I’m getting better by the day.”

She signed off on an optimistic note, saying, “I chose my favourite photo of us for this post because this is how I’d like to remember us: once solid and happy together.”

This week’s dose of #relationshipgoals comes courtesy of the former Channel NewsAsia presenter, who decided to dedicate a mushy #throwback post to her hubby, former MediaCorp actor James Lye. “20 years. Still the best thing that ever happened to me.”

All together now, everyone: Awww.

Jet-setting Cynthia succeeded in making us brim with wanderlust with her latest shots taken during her travels to mystical Egypt, which she spent doing ultra-cool things like riding on camels, “kissing” the iconic Sphinx (definitely a unique change of scenery from the Merlion), and buying her first authentic papyrus painting.

Hayley, Dennis, Marcus Chin and a couple of other friends welcomed us all to New York with their posts in the Big Apple, complete with pictures at all the obligatory landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park.

We’re not going to lie: it was pretty hard to fight off major feelings of envy, and their expressions of pure euphoria and enjoyment did absolutely nothing to help us!

Also on holiday is the Qi clan (who is getting more and more adorable by the day), who have been delighting followers with the most picturesque autumn shots in Japan.

“Moments of peace are rare when you travel with a 3 month old whose needs supersede everything else. But we find time,” the new mum gushed in a caption accompanying a photo of her gazing lovingly into the eyes of hubby Yuwu.

Baby Qi was certainly not forgotten, of course. A couple of days later, Joanne shared a snapshot of her and her daughter (dressed in a squeal-worthy polka dot hoodie) against a stunning backdrop of fall colours, and then another partial capture of her face “contemplating life”. We’re sure we’re not the only ones who want to see a full pic of Baby Qi soon!

Ugh, when will the torture end!? Across the strait from the Qi’s in Seoul is the 987fm DJ, whose pictures of Korean BBQ, bustling markets, multi-coloured trees and the majestic Gyeongbokgung Royal Palace have us thinking about all our favourite Hallyu dramas right now.

It looks like the Project SuperStar alumnus, who announced her pregnancy with hubby Ang Junyang last month, is going to be one funky, stylish mama. She took to her page to give us all a brief update on her condition, which included months of severe morning sickness (which has since thankfully passed) and fatigue (“still feeling unwell” but “it’s bearable”).

Our favourite part of the picture, however, are those darling baby shoes she’s holding, which match her colourful jacket.

Becks shared a very artsy shot of her sharing a tender moment (all in the name of film, of course) with Ian Fang, prompting fans to express their passionate approval for the pairing.

“Finally a scene with my BGB!” she wrote. Seriously, guys, when are you going to tell us what “BGB” (which is apparently an exclusive piece of lingo used between the two) is?

The ladies of Beauty World plugged their musical (which opened on Friday) in two very different ways: while Kewei and her co-stars Ethel Yap and Cynthia Lee MacQuarrie showed off their glamorous best in full dress, Jeanette posted a shout-out to a tissue paper brand that spoiled them with enough products to last them until the show ends its run next month (and probably beyond that). Ah, the perks of being famous…

Awww, how nice of Yvonne to catch up with Shaun Chen during his visit to Taiwan. “Good catchup! Wishing you all the best signing on to new talent company and of course becoming a daddy soon!! (sic)” she wrote, before adding a plea for him to come to Taipei more often and to bring his brood with him next time. Remember to take and share lots of pictures again when that happens!

Has it really been three years since Of Love and Hidden Charms (our web-drama that we released as xinmsn) was made? We were reminded of the fact in this quirky and oh-so-cute throwback shot with its stars Nat and Rebecca Lim. Anyone up for a second season?

We’re no strangers to seeing male K-pop idols put us to shame with how horrendously pretty they look cross-dressing as girls, but to see our very own Michelle pull off the reverse is quite a refreshing (and fascinating) change indeed!

“Cheesy but has to be done!” Andie wrote as the caption for this picture taken during his, Kate Pang and baby Aden’s family trip to the Singapore Zoo.

Please, you know the three of you look utterly adorable.

BONUS: His upload of Aden in a colourful headband and being dubbed “200 pound beauty” had us in stitches. We wonder what the boy is going to think of this when he looks back and discovers this when he’s much older…

The bad boy duke displays a softer side of him with one of the most swaggy-looking babies we’ve ever seen. We're going crazy over their matching camo jacket and beanie!

We never thought we’d use the veteran actor’s name and the Korean word “aegyo” (acting cute) in the same sentence but… there you have it.
