What the stars got up to the past week

The June school holidays are upon us and everyone’s in vacation mode. Our social media feeds are inundated with travel photos – we’ve got celebrities leading tour groups, visiting their hometowns, travelling with their families or fellow showbiz pals, and some more. For the few who are stuck in sunny (or rainy?) Singapore, it’s business as usual. We also saw a bevy of international stars descending upon this little red dot as Hollywood movie Crazy Rich Asians commences filming in Singapore with road blocks and such.

Read on for bite-sized updates on what the stars did the past week!

No matter how many kids (or babies) there are in the family, don't forget it's equally important to spend time alone with one's spouse! Ah Wu and Joanne finally get some well-deserved couple time on Friday, with Ah Wu debuting a brand new unshaven look. Is it for his new drama, Mind Matters?

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ begins filming in Singapore

Plenty of roads were closed the past week to accommodate the filming of Hollywood movie Crazy Rich Asians, which is partially based and set in Singapore. Thanks to that, we’ve got plenty of star-spotting opportunities, from the Ultra Party that happened in MBS (Marina Bay Sands) last weekend to Coconut Club on Wednesday.

Sonia Sui can’t get enough of her kids and husband…

Parents who’ve had to deal with their partners leaving for work would totally relate to how Sonia (and her kids) feel about their dad having to be apart from them. Distance makes the heart grow fonder and we can’t help but go ‘aww’ when we saw both Sonia and her husband, Tony Chia, posting pictures of their Facetime sessions with each other.
