Jay Chou, JJ Lin’s bromantic date in Singapore

Jay Chou and JJ Lin may be two of the biggest names in Mandopop, but during their recent sojourn in Singapore earlier this week, they behaved less like Crazy Rich Asians and more like common everyday folk (not counting the huge entourage, security detail and trails of adoring admirers, of course) – at least from what we could see in witnesses’ social media posts.

Although the superstar pals dropped by unannounced (save for a cryptic post from JJ on Instagram declaring that he’s “on a mission”), onlookers who happened to be at the right place at the right time managed to spot and snap them at Sim Lim Square and Resorts World Sentosa. The duo is supposedly here to film a variety show, and Jay is set to perform at the Singapore Grand Prix tomorrow night (Sep 14).

According to uploads on Instagram, Weibo and Facebook, Jay and JJ spent their day visiting various stores in Sim Lim Square, eating at a food court, checking out a café (the poor owner lamented about staying home on that day of all days), meeting the fishy residents of S.E.A. Aquarium, and singing at what appears to be a KTV lounge. They also took some time to pose for photos with a few lucky fans.

Their Lion City adventures don’t end there. Yesterday (Sep 12), Jay shared a hilarious clip of him at Madame Tussauds, in which the magic trick enthusiast brings JJ’s wax figure to “life” with his mystical powers (and by that, we mean amusingly amateurish video editing). There was also a competition to see whose eyes are bigger, and for some reason, JJ was deemed the winner (we’d have thought it’d be a tie, to be honest).

This is not the first time Jay has been spotted on our sunny shores in recent weeks. Two Saturdays ago (Aug 25), he made a trip to Founder Bah Kut Teh at Balestier for his favourite pork rib dish (he’s said to be a regular at the renowned eatery whenever he’s in town), and the next day, he and his wife Hannah Quinlivan had a relaxing Sunday on a Sentosa beach.

Hannah isn’t too far away at the moment either: on Monday (Sep 10), the actress shared a couple of photos of her and their daughter Hathaway (where’s little Romeo, though?) at a beach and revealed that she is currently shooting a film in Malaysia for two months. We wonder if the entire family will be swinging by to catch Jay in action tomorrow night?

What's better than seeing the Mandopop superstars team up for a duet on stage? Seeing them team up for a duet at what appears to be a place most of us are familiar with: a karaoke room. They even formed a heart shape together with their arms because this #bromance is clearly going very, very strong.
