We love how suave the two men look and Paige's chic green jumpsuit. And is Romeo channeling a little Goblin vibes with his cool trench? This makeover agrees with him - nice!

888 Mookata opens its second outlet

Dennis Chew and Chew Chor Meng's mookata business is definitely doing well - so well that the two towkays decided to open a second outlet in Bishan. Don't say we bo jio. It's the spot to be at if you want to tuck into a yummy meal and star gaze - quite literally. Just look at the stars we saw at the store's opening day yesterday.

Congrats and huat ah!

Xu Bin, Wang Yifei’s wedding aftermath…

Instead of jetting off on a honeymoon, the newly-minted Mr and Mrs Xu Bin opted to spend quality couple time together by going… shopping - now that they no longer have to keep their relationship under wraps. Also, check out the stack of newspapers and magazines on the left. According to Yifei, Xu Bin bought multiple copies of publications covering their wedding because it features the both of them together – officially, for the first time. Aww…

Mrs Song Joong Ki pouts for her husband

Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki are by far one of the most secretive celebrity couples in showbiz – and this picture of Hye Kyo pouting at the camera, which is presumably helmed by her husband, is one of the rarest few snapshots we’ll ever be given of their relationship. Have a sweet honeymoon vacay in Europe!

Whatever happened to Jesseca Liu and Jeremy Chan at Morocco?

Speaking about honeymoons, Jesseca and Jeremy encountered a few hiccups on theirs, in what was supposed to be an exotic getaway to Morocco. Long story short: Jesseca was unaware that Malaysian citizens required a visa to enter the country and hadn’t applied for one in advance, resulting in hours of detention at the immigration area upon their arrival at the airport. Luckily for them, they managed to book the next flight out of the country and detoured to Europe instead.

But as Murphy’s Law would have it – anything that can go wrong will go wrong (and this was not the end of their honeymoon mishaps…)

A series of misfortunate events of Jesseca and Jeremy

Their trusty black luggage died on them – by that, we meant it burst at its seams, when they were on the road. But there’s nothing a shopping trip to the luggage store won’t fix. The couple bought a new wheelie and filmed a dramatic video (which saw Jesseca falling to the floor, grief-stricken by the death of her luggage) to mark the end of blackie’s life. Um, RIP?

Jesseca vs Jeremy: Who did it better?

It never rains but it pours. Before they took this super cool shot with the leaning tower of Pisa, we learned that Jeremy - while watching birds flock in the air - got shat on by one random birdie. Sh*t happens - literally. Here's to a smooth-sailing honeymoon!

Janet Hsieh gets real about breastfeeding – and being a mum

Janet and her husband George Young have been regaling us with tales about their experience as first-time parents, dealing with Egan’s hourly milk feeds and vomits, the pains of breastfeeding, and some more. This week, they filmed Egan’s first big screen debut – on Instagram, no less – in a cute short which showed their son getting ‘eaten up’ by a giant shark blankie. Motherhood and parenting’s a tough job, but if anything we’re sure their sense of humour and ability to make light of their tiredness will keep them going, and going.

Thanks for being such positive influences! (And happy first month, Egan!)

First public sighting of new mama Constance Song

A couple of weeks ago, local actress and F&B entrepreneur Constance dropped a bombshell when she confirmed reports about being a mum to a five-month-old baby girl. The new mum was absolutely glowing at last week’s Gastro Month Food and Wine event where one of her chefs, Pepe Moncayo, picked up an award for being an ‘innovative and bold’ chef.

Sonia Sui shares an update about her kids

Life resumes normalcy for Sonia, who recently had a bad breakout of hives. The Taiwanese model-actress shared several photos of her two munchkins and husband at a restaurant and the zoo. Random: we’d like to commend the parent who’s been doing Lucy’s hair – the chubby toddler wears her pigtails and apple ‘dos with so much sass.

Popping a round of confetti to celebrate cowherd (Dalton) and weaving lady (Bubu)’s rare reunion. With their parents based in different countries – Vivian lives in Singapore while Alyssa lives in Taiwan – it’s no wonder their playdates are held once in a blue, blue moon, when Vivian’s back in her hometown. This was not the only “date” on Dalton’s calendar this time…

Cruising with the cast of Life Less Ordinary

The entire cast and crew packed their bags and huddled up a luxurious cruise liner for a total of five days and four nights to film a few episodes of the show on the ship. They had a field time rock climbing, feasting – and from the looks of it – ice-skating. Stay tuned for more updates about their fun-filled trip.

Barbie Hsu is all for the brand new F4 – and ‘Shancai’

In case you’ve been living under a rock: Angie Cai the producer of 90s hit drama series Meteor Garden and creator of F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu and Vanness Wu) is doing a remake of the idol drama and has clobbered together a new-generation of eye candy. Barbie, the former female lead of the series, was very hyped up to announce and introduce the new faces of the show.

SM artistes gather for the annual Halloween bash

Halloween’s well over, but there’s always #throwback photos to look forward to. In this case, we had a sneak peek of what went on at SM Entertainment’s annual spooky party thanks to BoA’s updates. Yunho from TVXQ made for a very convincing Roronoa Zoro from One Piece while Key (yes, he is Marge from The Simpsons) gave Morticia Addams a run for scariness with his makeover attempt. We’re really spooked.
