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

There’s quite an interesting bit of variety in today’s star social media roundup (in addition to the usual dose of babies and birthdays) – we have a Mandopop princess posing seductively with durians (and a Taiwanese starlet being introduced to the fruit for the first time), a K-pop star thanking the former US President for his shout-out, a former DJ finding love again after divorce, and much more:

Durian cake: 1, Amber An: 0

Before filming for their new movie A Simple Wedding kicked off, Desmond Tan dutifully played the part of a good local host and brought his co-star Amber around town, where they explored places like Universal Studios, Mount Faber, One Fullerton and, er, the gym.

One particularly amusing highlight of their real-life “dates”, however, was when Taiwan-born Amber got acquainted with durian – in her case, it was just durian cake – for the very first time. And judging from her traumatised reactions after taking a whiff and a bite, she was not in the least bit pleased. “I still have yet to appreciate the beauty of durian”, she lamented on Instagram.

It’s okay, Amber, perhaps you’ll learn to love it eventually?

Kate Pang snaps a heart-warming candid pic of her family

Awww, Andie says this was a candid moment, but it also looks like it could be a picture from a commercial. “Aden climbed onto me when I was carrying Avery and started drinking from her bottle. Moments like this makes me wonder... one more?” he wrote, quickly following up with the hashtag #notatthemoment.

It seems like Aden did not have enough of drinking from his sister’s bottle. A few hours later, a photo of Avery feeding her big brother emerged on the Kandie Family account with the caption, “After seeing his little sister drinking milk from a bottle, Aden said he also wanted [to do it]… now the house has two babies (face palm emoji)” Awww, we find it super cute!

Awww, doesn’t this look like such a happy photo? We think it’s the smiles, flowers, balloons and Rui En’s sunshiny yellow dress. Have you been watching Have A Little Faith, and what do you think of the show?

Carrie Wong congratulates the Song-Song couple, but Lee Kwang Soo…

You know someone’s a true supportive fan when they rejoice instead of lament relationship news involving their faves. “What an exciting morning, I’m so happy”, Carrie wrote next to a picture of reel-to-real couple Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo fist-bumping each other. The Korean actors announced on Wednesday (July 5) that they will be tying the knot on October 31.

Joong Ki’s good friend Kwang Soo, on the other hand, may be taking the news a little hard. The night the news broke, he posted a picture of Joong Ki writing “Joong Ki [heart] Kwang Soo” on a rock while on the set of Descendants of the Sun, and captioned, “So what was this all about”. Ha! (Don’t worry, we know he’s only joking.)

Congrats, Joong Ki and Hye Kyo! We’re looking forward to seeing many adorable descendants of yours.

Would you look at Bobo’s cheeks!

Guess who just learned to roll over! Also, can we just mention how envious we are of Alyssa Chia and Xiu Jie Kai’s youngest daughter’s strong brow game?

We can’t forget to mention Bobo’s older sister Bubu, of course. Jie Kai uploaded a video of the toddler singing, which mum Alyssa shared on her page and wrote, “I hope her singing voice doesn’t turn out to be like ours”. Guess we’ll all find out in a few years!

Charlie Young unveils more details about her sons

Also celebrating their 100th day earlier this week were Charlie’s twin boys Aloysius and Ignatius, and their mum decided to use this occasion to share a little bit more about each of them (from their point of view) on Facebook.

For older twin Ignatius, she wrote, “I like to climb onto my mum’s shoulders as she pats my back while humming, ‘I love you’; or lie on my father’s chest while chatting with him”, while for younger twin Aloysius, she wrote, “I play with my brother every day, sometimes we listen to music, sometimes we talk, and sometimes we compete to see who can make the loudest sound with our bell rattles!”

She ended the post by thanking her friends and family for their gifts, and is in turn sending them a box of egg rolls to express her gratitude.

Would you look at that view and that bathroom! Then again, we wouldn’t expect the actress and Jean Yip’s daughter, who married her first love Roy Fong last weekend, to settle for anything less Instagram-worthy when it comes to her bridal suite.

Her wedding photographers Trouvé also posted more lovely pictures from the big day on their page, which included some shots of Roy serenading his new wife on the piano (a skill he specially learned for her!).

We wish you all the best, Seraph!

Chris Wang is a blessed daddy

Chris, who welcomed his second child a little over a week ago, shared some loving comparison shots between the birth of his eldest daughter and youngest son. He said that he feels blessed to be able to witness the safe delivery of his kids twice, and urged his babies to grow up healthy for the sake of their mother, who suffered so much to bring them into the world.

Ella Chen’s sexy photo shoot with unexpected fruits

We’ve seen plenty of sensual pictorials with apples, grapes, cherries and other “prettier” fruits as props, but this is probably the first time we’ve seen someone pose so sexily with durian and mangosteen. “When in Malaysia, you have to eat durian until your nose bleeds”, she wrote. Mind if we join you, Ella?

Daniel Ong finds love again

Almost a year after finalising his divorce from Jaime Teo, whom he was married to for 11 years and has 7-year-old daughter Renee with, the former DJ is giving love another shot with makeup artist Linda Lee, who shared her first picture of them as a couple last Sunday. “Am thankful for every moment that we have of each other, the heartbreaks and hardships that shaped us, the endings that gave us this new beginning”, she wrote.

Daniel also posted a picture of himself with Linda and Renee the day before, but did not mention anything about a new relationship. Nevertheless, his followers got the hint and congratulated him (with the exception of a few trolls, but let’s not give them any attention).

It’s a short recording and a simple phrase (“Mama, I wait for you!”), but it was enough to make his mama Fann’s day. His voice is so precious!

William So’s son celebrates his 100th day

Has it already been a hundred days since baby Jazz was born!? His proud parents celebrated the milestone with a big party, complete with a music-themed cake (because “Jazz”, get it?) and tons of famous guests including Myolie Wu (with her husband), who posted a picture on Instagram saying, “You will be a big brother to Baby Lee!”

We hope they go on lots of playdates and that their parents post lots of pictures!

Jacelyn Tay’s son turns 6

It looks like Zavier got the perfect chance to wear the knight costume he got from London again! Jacelyn’s little boy had a birthday party at indoor playground Kidzland earlier this week, and there were a few famous faces among the guest list such as Mark Lee and his family, Jamie Yeo (who is currently pregnant with her second child, a boy) and her family, and Diana Ser (no sign of her family around, but we’re assuming they were around there somewhere).

Ji Chang Wook celebrates his 30th birthday

Also having a party with balloons and cake earlier this week was K-drama heartthrob Chang Wook, who turned 30 on July 5. Although his shindig appeared much simpler than Jazz’s and Zavier’s, he still looked thrilled and touched all the same, and also expressed his gratefulness in the caption.

Now who says football uniforms are only reserved for little boys? We think precious Azalea is rocking the look, and she looks so darn comfortable and happy in it too.

That aside, isn’t she looking more and more like her mummy Candyce Toh?

Key thanks Obama for mentioning SHINee

Former US President Barack Obama was recently in Seoul for the 8th Asian Leadership Conference and immediately sent the K-pop community into a frenzy when he specified SHINee in his speech (he said that young Americans are learning Korean to get to know the group, and that he knows the quintet loves In-N-Out burgers).

Understandably honoured by the shout-out, member Key took to his Instagram to thank Obama for the love, and to confirm that yes, he and his bandmates love In-N-Out indeed (complete with proof shots). When will your faves ever?

Nathan Hartono, Benjamin Kheng jam on Orchard Road

Come to think of it, we’re surprised that Nathan and Benjamin have never officially performed together until earlier this week! The musical heartthrobs turned street buskers for a day, much to the delight of Orchard Road patrons who happened to be at the right place at the right time.

Pace Wu gives birth to her third child

Now if this isn’t the most adorable baby announcement ever! On Tuesday (July 4), Pace shared that she has welcomed her third child Hudson Ji into the world and quickly arranged for a photo shoot. It looks like little Hudson has inherited his mama’s showbiz genes, judging from the absolutely precious picture they got of him. Just look at that smile and pose!

The next day, Pace posted a picture of her holding her newborn, looking all glowing and radiant. “From now on, my responsibilities have increased, but so has my happiness”, she wrote.

Shaun Chen and his wife celebrate their second anniversary

My, how time flies! On Wednesday (July 5), Shaun’s wife Celine Chin shared three lovely – and never-before-seen – pictures from their wedding day in 2015 on her Instagram page. “Two years ago today. Husband, wishing us both a very happy second wedding anniversary. There are still many, many more years to come. You must love me more and more”, she wrote in her caption, to which Shaun replied in a comment, “I will, wife”.

Happy anniversary, Nellie’s papa and mama!

Chen Yi Xi starts filming for ‘118’

When we caught up with Yixi last month, he admitted that just seven months earlier, he and his sister Yi Xin believed they would never follow in their parents’ (Xiang Yun and Edmund Chen) footsteps to become actors.

Well, Yi Xin is currently filming for While We Are Young, and Yi Xi had his first day on the set of 118 Reunion (his Channel 8 debut) on Tuesday. He will play a rock-climbing instructor who falls in love with Sheila Sim’s character.

118 Reunion premieres January 29 2018, 9pm on Channel 8.

Carina Lau and Jennifer Lawrence rub shoulders in Paris

Ooh la la, aren’t both ladies looking absolutely FIERCE. While Carina didn’t explain anything in her caption (there wasn’t even a caption because this clearly needs no words), this appears to have been taken at a Dior event in Paris (Carina later posted several more pictures from the affair, including one with Zhang Ziyi).

Hmmm, we’re just as excited as Leon is for the new season of hit TV series Game of Thrones, but isn’t little Harper way too young for the book and the show?
