Celeb-spotting at Jacky Cheung’s concerts

It looks like even local songstress Stefanie Sun couldn’t miss out on the heavenly king’s gig! Plus, it seemed like the Heavenly King wasn’t the only one who had fans lining up to snap a photo with him!

The Chens got very lucky

Not only did Andie chen managed to score last minute tickets to Jacky’s concert, his brother, Adam Chen, managed to win the kiss-cam challenge during the show and brought home a signed memorabilia from the ‘God of songs’ himself!

PS: Guess which ‘lucky’ couple was spotted by Andie and Kate Pang during the show?

And she said…

Just kidding, Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu are not tying the knot just yet, they were merely at a bridal shoot. But one can dream, right?

Is Ivy Lee going to make a comeback?

Patricia Mok took the chance to meet up with “our long lost actress” Ivy Lee over a meal during her trip to Hong Kong, where the actress, who has relocated to Hong Kong, answered a firm “no” when asked if she’s willing to return to acting again. Sigh, the truth hurts.

Girly lunch affair

Not all hope is lost, at least we’re able to spot these few Ah Jies on Instagram frequently even though we rarely see them onscreen (except Phyllis Quek, who is in the currently showing Legal Eagles).

Ben Yeo’s son is Prince Of Thrift?

King Of Thrift Ben Yeo definitely taught his son well as the cheeky boy taught the viewers how to reduce water consumption in light of the recent announcement of the bill hike. Our favourite tip was: “Don’t bathe”.

Tay Ping Hui, the koala whisperer

It’s baffling how Tay Ping Hui got a Koala to wink along with him while he snapped a selfie conveniently on his phone. The actor is also obviously too cool for snowboarding as he opted to surf on sand dunes under the hot sun in Australia instead, talk about manly.

Pornsak in Mongolia

Pornsak spent more than a week filming at Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, the world’s coldest capital. But the host sure made the place look warm with his friendly hosts!

Tanya Chua and Jolin Tsai take Europe by storm

They say friends who travel together, stay together. What more girls who shop, bake and sing together? Oh, and also go through a breakup together maybe?

Chen Hanwei, the stuntman

As the stars begin to wrap filming for The Lead, Chen Hanwei, who plays a stuntman in the drama, filmed his dreaded scene. Apparently he said he was “bad at action stuff,” but we didn’t see any fear in him when he jumped off the second storey.

Jimmy Lin commemorates 25 years in showbiz

Having debuted at the tender age of 17, Jimmy Lin spent more than half of his life in the spotlight. But the 42 year-old actor wrote on his Facebook in his thank-you post, “Time with my fans is never enough”. Aww.

Joshua Tan is #GarlicBae?

Joshua Tan and Julie Tan, his sous-chef, made themselves useful in the kitchen after having a meal at Shane Pow’s newly opened eatery, Mojo. Apparently the hunky actor dropped a yakitori in the grill by accident. Oops.

Bathrobe karaoke with Nathan Hartono

Bathrobe karaoke - mildly acceptable if the subject is Nathan Hartono. Otherwise, super cringey.

Although Quan Yi Fong spent her birthday away from home and her daughter, Eleanor, she enjoyed her time in the deep mountains of France, where she found solace while being disconnected from the world. Happy birthday, Yi Fong!
