Yvonne shared this snap of herself with a cake she decorated, revealing that she signed up for classes after realising that she needed some time to herself. As it turns out, decorating this cake also taught her patience. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Earlier this week, Jeanette revealed that she accidentally put a knife into her palm, causing two of her fingers to go numb. Thankfully, she posted an update a day later saying that she has since gotten back some sensation in the said fingers.

Speedy recovery, Jeanette!

Yao Wenlong muses about his kids growing up too fast

While out on a trip with his family, Yao Wenlong took the opportunity to go on a major throwback session as he posted photos of himself with his son 10 years ago as compared to his recent trip.

Is it just us, or is Wenlong looking like he's aged backwards instead? Do tell us your secrets.

Nathan Hartono should probably be awarded the boyfriend of the year

Nathan Hartono and Na Young Jeon were reunited in Singapore in time for the Singapore International Film Festival Silver Screen Ball.

However, while they were off duty, Nathan was subjected to, uh, some unique activities as he explained that she is currently doing a yoga instructor training course and needed "a guinea pig". Major brownie points for managing to maintain that uncomfortable looking pose.

Also reunited this week were Joshua Tan and his girlfriend, Zoen Tay. By the looks of the board, the pair went wakeboarding while she's back in Singapore.

However, what made us really interested was what Jack Neo had to say...

Is Jack Neo hinting at something?

"It's now that chapter of the lives of our Ah Boys, which is to start a family and stabilise his career. Do you know who (I'm talking about)?" Jack captioned this photo of himself, his wife, along with Joshua and Zoen.

Is that a hint (and not a very subtle one at that)?

Qi Yuwu returns to Singapore for his birthday

Joanne Peh shared that they weren't sure if Yuwu would be able to return to Singapore to celebrate his birthday this year due to his work commitments, and thankfully, the actor managed to find time to jet back home.

Calling her husband her "pillar of strength", we're glad to see that Yuwu and Joanne managed to spend some quality time together, and hopefully, they won't have to wait too long to have more of that again.

Kate Pang, Andie Chen celebrate five years of marriage

Also spending some quality time together this week was Kate Pang and Andie Chen, who flew to Phuket, Thailand to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary.

"While I was eager to soak in the sun, she was picking (trash) from the beach, think of the sea animals she said. While I celebrated grabbing a good seat on the ferry, she gave it up for a family with a toddler, we ended up half standing for the whole ride. Again and again she placed the needs of others before her, (sic)" Andie wrote.

Thanking Kate for making him "a better person", his heartfelt post was a hilarious contrast from hers, which encouraged him to keep up the good work after five years of "hardship", which has since earned him a "hawt babe's unconditional love (sic)".

Aden Chen earns his first martial arts belt

The toddler, whom dad Andie Chen revealed is a ball of energy these days, earned his yellow tip belt in martial arts after passing a test earlier this week. We're wondering how long it'll take this little boy to get his black belt, which will definitely be a welcome skill to have in the name of self-defence.

Cantopop duo Twins might not be promoting together these days, but that doesn't mean that Gillian Chung and Charlene Choi have grown apart. As it turns out, Gillian paid a surprise visit to Charlene while she was at work, bringing a cake along to celebrate her good friend's birthday.

In this week's edition of what-could've-been, Tay Ping Hui gave us a good chuckle as we imaged this fur-covered throne of his as part of an Asian version of the Game of Thrones. Comparing it to the Iron Throne, he called it "perfect" for the cold weather that Hengdian is currently experiencing.

Sharon Au celebrates friend's wedding anniversary in Paris

What better way to celebrate your 25th wedding anniversary than renewing your vows in Paris? As it turns out, Sharon Au's friends, Ting and Long, did just that in the presence of their loved ones.

What caught many netizens' eyes, however, is the presence of the man on the far right of the photo, who is either Jacky Cheung or the Heavenly King's doppelgänger. You really never know who you'll meet in Paris.

Fiona, who was in Beijing earlier this week, met up with Jackie Chan and thanked him for being a source of inspiration throughout the years. Calling him "ever so generous with his time and love", she added that she "respects him deeply for always making sure the scripts drives home good values".

"Thank you for teaching me to always spread positive energy and love and thank you for spotting my funny bone," she mused.

JJ Lin, the third wheel?

JJ posted photos of a day at JFJ Sanctuary, and while we were fascinated by the goings-on behind-the-scenes, what caught our eye was this snap of himself with Mickey Huang and Summer Meng.

Is it just us, or did he look a very teeny bit like a third wheel between the engaged couple?

The family that works out together, stays together.

At least, that's probably what Edmund Chen had in mind when he said yes to this pilates session with his kids, Chen Yixi and Yixin. He later left a comment on his post, assuring his followers that he has "survived" the hour-long session.

Myolie Wu, Philip Lee jet off to Thailand

This jet-setting couple was in Ho Chi Minh City a week ago, but have since jetted to Thailand. 

There, we also learned that there's an unspoken rule when visiting the land of smiles: your first meal has to be Pad See Ew. We'll definitely keep that in mind during our next visit there.

After leaving Cube Entertainment, the lovebirds have amped up their lovey-dovey posts on their respective social media accounts. They've also posted a ton of dance practice videos, which makes us wonder when they'll be able to make an official comeback with some new music.
