Insta-buzz: What the stars were up to this week

Over the past week, we saw a lot of love going on between couples, friends, parents, children and colleagues. There was also our usual envy-inducing look at celebs jetting off on Christmas vacations, or those preparing for the holiday season right in their own kitchens. Click through for more:

Pan Lingling and Huang Shinan’s romantic getaway

The celebrity couple packed their swimwear and left the kids at home to retreat to the magnificent Maldives for blue skies and blue seas. Even fellow stars Fann Wong, Christopher Lee, Zoe Tay and Sheila Sim could not help but express their admiration in the comments section. We’re plenty envious too!

The romantic shots prompted Ben Yeo to ask, “A third one (kid)?” to which Lingling replied, “Not possible, (we’re) old already”.

Also showing off her blissful family life was the host, who shared a collage of herself and her daughter Eleanor Lee cuddling in bed amongst a mass of fluffy soft toys. “I finally get to see my baby. The moment I stepped into her house, I saw everything in pairs. She told me, ‘I was waiting for you to come and use them”, Yifong explained in her caption, adding that the gesture moved her to tears of happiness.

After dating for two years and being engaged for five, CLASS 95 DJ Jean and her beau, also a DJ, made things official on Friday night (Dec 16). Many of her fellow DJs, including Yasminne Cheng and Simone Heng, attended the banquet and shared excited posts on Instagram, wishing the newlyweds the best in their marriage.

Congratulations again, Jean and Glenn!

EXO’s Chanyeol and Sehun unleash their inner wizards

It wasn’t a case of all work and no play for the Hallyu boy group members during their recent Japan concert tour. Earlier this week, they shared snippets from their visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Japan, complete with a Butterbeer moustache selfie, snapshots of them duelling with wands, and even Chanyeol using the “Wingardium Leviosa” levitation spell on his bandmate.

One very important question remains, however: which Hogwarts houses were they sorted into?

Chen Hanwei’s #throwback streak continues

The veteran actor has been continuing to share old photos of himself on his page. This one, from Love Me, Love Me Not, features himself in his recognisable ultra-nerdy look (those pants are practically to his waist) and co-star Xie Shaoguang, who seems to be making fun of Hanwei’s character with an unappealing facial expression.

“I never thought that I would have an old photo like this. Long time no see, how are you?” Hanwei wrote in his caption. We’re glad this picture was taken and shared!

Jeremy Chan proves his looks haven’t aged in years

Hanwei’s not the only one who’ve been digging through old pictures. Jeremy shared a couple of childhood shots of himself with his brothers Jefferson and Jaricson, and we have to say that we’re quite amazed how he still looks pretty much exactly the same as him right now, at the age of 35!

Supermodel-turned-actor BFFs finally reunite

When Lee Jong Suk was in Singapore, he revealed at the press conference that he had plans to meet up with his famous best friend Kim Woo Bin for a meal when he got back to Korea. The busy bees finally managed to find time to do so a whole month later, and commemorated the occasion with adorable wefies which were shared on Jong Suk’s Instagram page, which we’re willing to bet make fan girls squeal out loud in delight.

Can we have a slice of Jeanette Aw’s cakes too?

With Christmas season right around the corner, the actress has been busy baking, “sometimes way into the night.. but late night bakes have always been my thing anyway”, as she wrote on Instagram. And if the comments by folks lucky enough to sample her wares are anything to go by, Jeanette’s pastries taste just as great as they appear.

On an unrelated note, how does one still look so flawless while immersed in kitchen activities in the middle of the night!?

Baby Qi makes her own Christmas tree ornaments

With help from mama Joanne Peh, of course. “We're making salt dough ornaments for #babyqi's first live Christmas tree!” Those two little arms certainly look like they’re giving their all to flatten that dough. Joanne later shared the end products, which, as she said, “aren’t as pretty as expected”. Still, we’re sure the mum-and-daughter duo had a great time making them together!

Also getting into the holiday spirit in the kitchen was pregnant Michelle and her hubby, who looked so adorably focused when they were decorating their Christmas cookies. Hm, could the red figure that appears to be wearing diapers represent their unborn baby, who could be born any time soon?

Mr. and Mrs. Jade Seah gear up for the holiday season

Like many of us, the actress-host and her husband Terence were clearly excited for Christmas, and set up a tiny but well-decorated tree in their home two weeks before December 25 itself. “Love really tall Christmas trees, but our place is too small for that, so we've been going for fun-sized ones the past few years”, she explained.

It’s okay, Jade, we should all leave the skyscraper-like Christmas trees to the pros.

Awww, look at this precious shot of Vivian Hsu’s baby boy just relaxing – or, stretching? – with his half-sister, who is Vivian’s husband Sean Lee’s second oldest daughter from his previous marriage. Netizens praised the good looks of both the kids, and some also pointed out their similarities in looks.

Lee Joon Ki and his ‘Resident Evil’ co-stars show their love

Look who has been teaching his new Hollywood friends the ubiquitous hand gestures commonly seen given by Korean actors. “Great memory~! love u (Milla Jovovich) love u (Paul W. S. Anderson)” he wrote. It looks like Paul (the film’s director) needs a little bit more practice in perfecting Joon Ki’s way of forming a heart with his fingers, though.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter opens in cinemas on February 2, 2017.

It looks like George Young and Janet Hsieh found themselves on Darth Vader’s bad side during the preview screening of Rogue One: A Star Wars story in Taiwan. “You don't ask this guy to take his helmet off in the theatre”, wrote George in his caption of the same photo. Ah, that explains it.

To be honest, we never thought we’d see the former K-pop idol and Hollywood superstar posing like buddies in the same photo, but here they are, and starring in a movie together, no less! The duo will be part of period film The Great Wall, which hits local cinemas on December 29.

So this is what the funnyman and his missus would have looked like if they had started dating in secondary school. We must say, Calista’s pigtails are a nice finishing touch!

“When you love your co-stars…so much that you just wanna take a shower with’em (sic)”, read Pierre’s mischievous caption beside a photo of him, seemingly topless, between cardboard standees of his Mulan The Musical colleagues Judy Chou and Nana Lee.

BIGBANG’s Taeyang just wants to show Seungri some birthday love…

Taeyang posted four videos of himself wishing Seungri happy birthday and failing to get an amused reaction or acknowledgement out of him. After a few hours, Seungri finally responded with a smile and a peace sign, much to Taeyang’s delight.

“I’m really, really, really going on #holiday, I’m not #movinghouse”, clarified the actress-host alongside the shot of herself and a whole group of luggage bags. Vivian, her husband and their two daughters were embarking on a European trip starting in Vienna, Austria. A chilly, white Christmas – how lovely!

Filming for upcoming Toggle Originals series Patisserie Fighting wrapped on Thursday (Dec 15), and what better way to “celebrate” than with… an “unglam” wefie? Well, we’re sure Chris Lee became close enough with his co-star throughout the course of shooting to be able to get away with posting this.

Michelle happened to be on the same New York-bound flight with former foreign minister George Yeo and immediately seized the opportunity to ask him for a photo – with him holding her Lulu The Movie postcard, of course, which he happily agreed to do.

Another throwback – albeit a much less vintage one – comes courtesy of Yvonne Lim, who showed a side-by-side comparison of herself and her adorable son on Dec 14, 2015 and Dec 14, 2016. AJ is clearly looking more and more like a handsome young man, but his too-cute-for-words smiley face remains the same.

We absolutely love this heart-warming photo of Zen Chong’s family of four (wife Geline, daughter Aryssa and son Eytan) during a Sunday outing at Bishan Park! “#familybonding is important!” wrote the Malaysian-born actor. Indeed it is.
