Xiang Yun, Edmund Chen’s wedding photos revealed

Back in June 1989, Xiang Yun and Edmund Chen made headlines when they got married just three months after meeting on the set of SBC (Singapore Broadcasting Corporation) drama Patrol.

What we didn’t see was this set of photos on their big day, which were shared by their wedding photographer on Facebook this week. Just look at the smiles on their faces - we’re glad to see that this loving couple is still going strong almost three decades down the road.

Jeffrey Xu’s birthday celebration with MJ Club

Jeffrey turned 29 on October 3, and held his yearly celebration with his fan club. This year, however, was special as his fan club has been reestablished and has also gone through a name change - they are now known as MJ Club.

“What I hope that MJ Club can give back to the fans is for them to have a platform to share their individual talents. I realised that many fans lack the confidence and I realised that some of them are actually very talented through the meetings I had with them while planning for the party. Some of them are really good at designing; others are talented in baking,” Jeffrey shared.

“We’ll continue to hold many events and I’ll give them my full support in displaying their talents. Above all, I want them to feel that everyone is family - they’ve been my family in Singapore who pick me up at the airport and celebrate my birthdays with me, and I hope that through MJ Club, I can repay them for all that they’ve given me.”

What’s a birthday without hanging out with your bros? It looks like Jeffrey had a ball of a time with Andie Chen, Terence Cao, Desmond Tan, Shane Pow, Romeo Tan and Ian Fang.

Also having his early initiation to the bros club was Aden Chen, who looked perfectly at home with the other stars.

Shane Pow’s unique hatchday tale

Shane turned 27 this year, and shared that his mother said that she gave birth to him right after eating mooncakes. While it’s unlikely that we can ever verify whether this is true, it’s definitely a conversation starter in our books.

Kimberly mused in hers that she hopes that Shane will be “less annoying now that you’re old”, while Felicia went down the mushy route, declaring that she hopes that he is “always reminded of how precious and valued you are. Thank you for being you and thank you for being there for me.”

Aww.

As for Nick Teo, he might just be the nice guy that balances out the sass the other three dish out - but we’ll have to stay tuned to find out!

Cavin Soh’s very belated honeymoon

Cavin may have tied the knot with his wife Serena in 2009, but has never been able to go on a honeymoon with her - until this year. Eight years and two children later, the lovebirds have finally been able to go on their much-deserved honeymoon. In Cavin’s words, better late than never.

When is Janet Hsieh going to pop?

That seems to be the question on everybody’s minds as Janet is well into her 40th week of pregnancy. George Young shared this snap of the entire family checking out an ultrasound of baby - and by the looks of Janet’s huge baby bump, we should be saying hello to the newest addition to the family real soon!

Janet Hsieh shares her maternity photoshoot photos

After sharing sneak previews at her maternity photoshoot last month, Janet uploaded the high-resolution shots of the shoot on her Instagram this week, and we must say that the results are stunning.

In the captions, she also shared snippets of her pregnancy journey, and that she hopes the photos that she took “celebrate the beauty that is pregnancy and the miracle of life”.

Jean Danker’s photographic proof that Stefanie Sun is most definitely alive

Earlier this week, reports of Stefanie Sun having passed away circulated online, and although the singer quickly stepped forward to rubbish those rumours, those in doubt were definitely proven wrong when Stefanie performed at a concert held at the Botanic Gardens in celebration of World Mental Health Day.

Did we mention how stunning (as always) Jean looked while hosting?

Quan Yi Fong’s hilarious use of memes

Yi Fong announced on her Instagram that she was able to make her schedule work out so that she will be able to jet to China to celebrate her daughter Eleanor’s birthday with her on October 12. What tickled us, however, was her very appropriate use of memes (featuring a very unglamorous shot of her daughter), sharing that she’d go after anyone who dares mess with her break.

This is not a throwback photo, it seems, as Jay Park (who visits Singapore so frequently we are no longer surprised when he pops by) hung out with ShiGGa Shay at what looks like the 1-Altitude Bar.

Blackie Chen’s eyebrow-raising choice of children’s toys

Uh, we don’t know where Blackie Chen got this particular toy, and yes, we’re pretty sure that it’s a giant remote-controlled cockroach. We wonder how long this particular toy will survive, especially since it’s bound to get swatted by unsuspecting friends and family members.

Jay shared that Hannah has landed a Hollywood role in a flick which stars Dwayne Johnson. He also let on that the casting tape she submitted was made two days after she gave birth to their son in June. He asked for netizens’ support for his wife as filming will start this month - that’s some #relationshipgoals right there.

Shaun Chen, dad extraordinaire, goes on holiday

While Shaun may have looked like he stepped out from a film set with his street wear, the bright blue container that he held in his left hand made us do a double take. His caption, “Dad going on holiday. Guess what’s in the blue container?” had netizens chiming in with all sorts of answers, but we’d guess that it’s baby milk in there for the latest addition to his family.

Joanne Peh’s creative lantern-making session with Baby Qi

Joanne shared that she came up with her very own lantern-making activity for Baby Qi as most Mid-Autumn craft events are more suitable for older children. After scrolling through pictures of the lantern-making process, we must say that she deserves 10 points (at the very least) for creativity.

Our favourite baby snaps celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival

There were plenty of posts made in celebration of the Mid-Autumn festival, but these two are among our favourites - on the left, Sonia Sui quipped that those who weren’t able to see the moon should look at this snap of baby Lucy instead as she’s “as round as the moon”.

On the left, Yvonne Lim’s snap of her, Alex and Alexa with pomelo skin hats could only have been made more adorable if AJ was sporting enough to join them. There’s always next year!

While the newlyweds didn’t take a photo together (Jeremy previously shared that they prefer to not upload photos of each other on their own social media pages), their similar poses and captions were too cute not to include.

Jesseca’s read, “What? Such a huge mooncake? How can I finish it on my own? Let’s share them!” whereas Jeremy quipped in his, “Hoping that everyone has a happy family reunion, and not grow rounder even after eating mooncakes”.

Do we dare wish for a new JJ Lin album this year? The singer-songwriter headed back to the studio this week, but there’s no word yet on what he’s working on. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

A friendly reminder from Ya Hui that the year is ending

What, is it that time of the year already? This week, Ya Hui, Hong Ling, Chew Chor Meng, He Ying Ying and Richie Koh were among the stars that started work on one of 2018’s Lunar New Year music videos.

In case you’re wondering, the first day of the Lunar New Year will fall on February 16, 2018 - that’s a little over four months away. You’re welcome.
