This week, we celebrated anniversaries, squealed over the adorable antics of some of our favourite celebrity babies, and kick-started the year-end Korean awards season, which can only mean that the best is yet to come.

Desmond Tan, Paige Chua, Pierre Png's whirlwind trip

The When Duty Calls actors had a whirlwind tour to Kuala Lumpur, where they attended a mall event, went on live radio, had interviews with Malaysian media and even held a fan meeting - all in one day.

Regardless, the smiles on their faces tell us that they had a great time. We hope you had a good rest afterwards, everyone!

"3 aspiring scriptwriters working on a brand new story plot. Decipher the story," Desmond declared in this Instagram post.

Try as we might, we haven't been able to figure out what they were thinking of, but we hope that includes lots of dramatic plot twists.

Rainie Yang warns us of the perils of wearing heels

As an artiste, Rainie has to wear heels most of the time, and she shared that due to the stress that it's put on her feet, she started wearing a bunion corrector because of the pain that she's been going through.

On the bright side however, she managed to meet up with some of her friends this week as well, and we spot some familiar faces (hello Wilber Pan and Michelle Chen!) at the gathering too.

So, we have two slightly guilty-looking furkids and one very satisfied looking facee in this picture, and a metal tin of biscuits that look very well raided - Jolin played detective and concluded that it was WooHoo's (whom she hilariously referred to as XL) doing.

Joanne uploaded these snaps of Yuwu while they're on a family vacation in Japan, and shared that searching for a birthday cake and candle in an "unfamiliar country turned out to be quite an adventure!"

We can't wait to hear about this adventure they had.

Joanna posted snaps from her wedding back in 2012, and photos taken on her fifth wedding anniversary, and we noticed that one thing hasn't changed between her and her husband, Zachary Ho: the smiles on their faces that tell us that they're still very much in love.

Here's to many more years of anniversaries, you two!

"You're the lead actress of my heart!" he declared in his post. This snap was taken at the Asian Television Awards, where Hong Kong's Kara Wai went home with the Best Actress in a Leading Role award.

Nevertheless, it was a great day for Felicia, who shared that she was overjoyed to have her mother present at the glitzy event.

"I know you look seventeen but can you not be so childish to crop my face away," Jay grumbled on his Instagram post. We don't know what happened exactly, but he and Hannah Quinlivan probably had a good laugh over this snap.

Yoga Lin celebrates one-year mark since his successful proposal

We all know about stories of husbands who forget their anniversaries, but Yoga Lin is definitely not one of those men - he celebrated the one-year mark since he successfully proposed to his then-girlfriend.

Seriously though you two, why so cute?

Xu Bin continues to overload us with lovey dovey snaps

Don't get us wrong - we're not complaining about our weekly dose of sweetness from this couple, but we're seriously wondering how he managed to keep it in while he was still dating under the radar.

Now that he's gone public with his relationship and has even gotten married, we say: post away!

Fann Wong's blissful dinner situation

Fann Wong shared a video of herself, along with husband Christopher Lee and their son, Zed, at dinner, and quipped that she was feeling especially blissful with these two around.

The father-son pair were intently preparing the food while Fann watched on, and our hearts couldn't help but to melt at how hard Zed was focusing on his task at hand.

#Instagramhusband, anyone? Ella's husband, Alvin Lai, sure is great at his job of ensuring that Ella gets all the best snaps for her social media platforms.

Additional brownie points for him being able to juggle all the baby necessities while taking those perfect shots.

Aww, the level of #relationshipgoals with these two always gets higher - they jetted off to South Korea and have been living it up (Shake Shack, anyone?) both in Seoul and in the neighbouring areas, including Nami Island.

Also, the weather hasn't been the kindest (Kimberly shared that it's even hit -7 degrees celcius), and Shane quipped in one of his posts that it's "too cold to take OOTDs outside. Enjoy the cold while you're there, guys.

Now, if this doesn't make you feel an intense wave of wanderlust, we don't know what will.

Bryan Wong successfully (yay!) chased after the Northern Lights this week during his trip to Norway, and shared this breathtaking snap on his Instagram for us who haven't been able to witness the beauty for ourselves.

BTS has (yet another) great week

The year-end awards season has officially started in Korea, with the Mnet Asian Music Awards and Melon Music Awards held on December 1 and 2 respectively.

Not only did BTS pick up their second Artist of the Year award in a row, they also went home with more nods, including Best Music Video for 'Spring Day'.

The very next day, they won another series of awards, including Song of the Year for 'Spring Day' and the Global Artist Award, which hasn't been awarded to any other artiste for five years since PSY gained global recognition with 'Gangnam Style'.

Seriously though, they've been working so hard that we hope that they've been getting sufficient rest.

EXO brought home two major awards in the same number of days - Album of the Year at the Mnet Asian Music Awards and the Artist of the Year at the Melon Music Awards.

Notably, during their respective acceptance speeches at both events, they did shoutouts to Lay, who was unable to make it for either event.

Egan is the king of the house even at seven weeks old

Egan might be all of seven weeks old, but this little one is definitely the king of the house.

"I’ve decided to give my parents a little break by sleeping up to 4 hours at night. In the future, they better repay me back with a little brother or sister to play with or I’m peeing on dad again," Janet said (on behalf of Egan) on her Instagram post. Yes, please.

Oh no - looks like Azalea didn't have the best week as she was down with a high fever. Thankfully, her parents found out and she was sent to the doctors' speedily.

Get well soon, little one!

Why do they all grow up so fast? Yvonne Lim shared some snaps of AJ on his first school excursion, and the little boy looks all grown up. Also, we must admit that we were thoroughly distracted by his chubby cheeks. So. Cute.

Looks like Aden Chen is going places - he made his runway debut at a Spongebob event this week, and can we just say that he looks absolutely adorable?

We caught a glimpse of him getting all shy and running away in Insta-stories, but let's just pretend that never happened - after all, everyone gets stage fright at least once in their lives, right?

Sonia Sui goes on first vacation with Lucy in tow

After welcoming her baby girl, Lucy, to the family, in February, Sonia announced on her Instagram that they'd be taking their first family vacation together, and that it's a "so far, so good" situation with the 10-month old.

We'll be keeping our fingers crossed that Lucy continues to enjoy the trip with her family, though she might not remember any of it when she grows up.

Tosh Zhang posts a throwback uh, selfie?

Okay, if not for the fact that we know that it's Tosh, we might not have guessed that this was him if we didn't watch Ah Boys to Men 4 yet.

The stars previously shared that this look, which was a created because (spoiler alert!) the boys were attacked by bees in reel-life, and that it took hours for them to get this sausage lips, swollen eyes look down pat. We're pretty sure it wasn't easy to remove either.

Bonus: The photo on the right is to remind you how good he looks minus the kena-stung-by-bees makeup.

We say goodbye to While We Are Young

It seems like just yesterday we were seeing these young faces at their first imaging session, but Channel 8 drama While We Are Young has officially wrapped this week.

The young stars also took this opportunity to say goodbye to their respective characters, and with the potential that we've seen in the drama, we'll definitely be looking forward to more from these rising stars.

Girls' Generation's Yuri, Seohyun hang out

Earlier this year, three members of Girls' Generation, Seohyun, Sooyoung and Tiffany were reported to not have renewed their respective contracts with S.M. Entertainment, which led to fears that it might be the end of the hugely popular girl group.

Fans have been heartened, however, by the social media posts that the girls have been posting since then, with Seohyun and Yuri posting snaps from their reunion at an event earlier this week. It's good to know that their friendship is still going strong!

Yuan Shuai, Lee Wei Song, Catherine Ang, Julie Tan and Lee Teng caught up in Shanghai, and Yuan Shuai mused that he's missed everyone here.

Notably, his fanclub also commented that they miss seeing him in Singapore - and we sure hope to see him soon, too.
