Fann Wong creates a unique lantern for Zed

Fann Wong guessed that she'd have to create a lotus or pineapple-shaped lantern for Zed this year, but he surprised her with her request for an anglerfish one instead. We must say, however, that she did a fantastic job with it, even adding on the fairy lights for better effects.

Jeffrey Xu gets asked a very important question

"In this life, what's important is not what you have at the end of the road, but what you leave behind in this world! I see the love in this photo. I really like your heart of gold," Jeffrey gushed in his caption of this photo of girlfriend Felicia Chin in Myanmar as part of her efforts for World Vision Singapore.

One of the comments that caught our eye, however, was one that read, "Could you please get married quickly?"

We couldn't have said it better.

Guess who decided to pop by and say hello?

No Taiwan trip is complete without (nope, it's not lu rou fan) saying hello to Yvonne Lim! The local actress took time out of her full-time mum duties to meet up with Desmond Tan, Sheila Sim and Romeo Tan, and we're sure they had a ball of a time catching up.

The cutest health advisory you'll see all week

"The weather isn't good, so everyone should drink more water and get plenty of rest. Otherwise, the doctor will give you a jab," Yao Wenlong captioned this photo, with his daughter adorably dressed up as a doctor. We're not sure if this medical advisory will work though, because this is one doctor we wouldn't mind paying a visit to.

Max Hsieh heads for his first trip with his dad

Sonia Sui mused that she's learning how to let go of her little boy as Max accompanied her husband, Tony Hsieh, to the US for a work trip. 

However, it looks like her worries were for naught as the little boy seems to be taking to the trip like a champ, even heading to a coffee joint with his dad to deal with the jet lag.

SMTOWN heads to Chile

SM Entertainment's artistes headed to Chile for the SMTOWN LIVE Special Stage in Santiago, and you know what that means - plenty of photos that include members from the groups under the label. We love friendship.

Sheila Sim is forever young at heart

Wait, you're telling us that Sheila is turning 35 this year? Like she said, she looks young, she feels young, she behaves young and dresses young - and this is why we always say, age is just a number and the most important part is what you're like inside.

And for the record, Sheila, you don't look ridiculous, you look oh-so-fabulous (as always).

Introducing you to Director Pow

Shane Pow might be known for his goofy personality, but when it gets down to work, he's definitely up for the job. While we might have to wait a while before his directorial debut (which also stars Kimberly Wang and Nathan Hartono, among others) premieres, this is one project that we're definitely anticipating.

We can't wait to hear more, too.

... And was given some moral support!

Romeo might have started filming ahead of the other Singaporean actors, but Desmond Tan and Sheila Sim made sure to show their support for their fellow cast-mate by showing up on set. Aww.

All work and no play? No way!

Even with the gruelling filming schedule, Romeo, Sheila and Desmond still took time off to relax as they toured the famous night market in Taiwan. We wonder who bought the most stuff...

Christine Fan, Blackie Chen celebrate their twin boys' fourth birthdays

Christine Fan and Blackie Chen celebrated their twin boys' fourth birthdays with a simple party at home (we love the cake!), and while Christine chose to post this shot of the family enjoying the festivities, Blackie instead shared a photo of the boys when they were just born, captioning his post with, "Mummy, you've had it hard."

Constance Song uploads a rare photo of her daughter

After giving birth to her daughter in 2017, Constance has maintained a low profile for her little girl, which is why we enjoy seeing peeks of her growing up whenever the protective mummy shares them online. We can't believe this little one is old enough to carry her own bag now - how time flies.

Desmond Tan redefines the term jet-setter

Three cities in 24 hours? No problem, especially if you're Desmond Tan. The last we checked, he was in Taiwan, but he jetted back to Singapore (for four hours) and hopped onto another flight to Tokyo - for work, of course. We must wonder, however, how he manages to look at the top of his game even after spending hours in the plane.

Edison Chen misses his wife more than his daughter

This is the best #10YearChallenge glow up that we've seen (though unintentional) - who would've guessed that showbiz's bad boy, Edison Chen, would become such a family man? While separated from his family, he made sure to stay in contact with them, even declaring to the world that while he misses his little girl Alaia, he misses his missus Qin Shupei more.

Ella Chen's little boy is growing up before our eyes

It seems like just yesterday when news of Ella Chen giving birth broke, but these days, her little boy is growing up so fast that he's already charming the hearts of many around the world. (just look at those dimples!)

Also, netizens pointed out that 'Jin Bao' looks a lot like a little JJ Lin - what say you?

Kevin Cheng, Grace Chan meet Jacky Cheung backstage

Kevin Cheng and Grace Chan took a rare photo together in public as the pair met Jacky Cheung backstage at his concert. While Grace marvelled at how amazing the Heavenly King's concert was, her followers couldn't help but to marvel at something else - how her baby bump still isn't showing.

At first glance, you may think that these are just photos of a scenic getaway, but these are in fact behind-the-scenes photos of the cast of Hello Miss Driver hard at work. Who says work has to be boring?

Janet Hsieh gets the best birthday present

Janet Hsieh was supposed to celebrate her birthday with her friends, but ended up "passed out on the living room floor" as she chuckled that "nothing could wake me up (not even her tot Egan crawling around all over me while I slept.)"

Lo and behold, her friends decided to spring a surprise on her to babysit Egan so that Janet could have some time to herself. "Friends know what mommies want the most and are the best presents I could ask for! Thank you," she concluded.

Even then, nothing stops the snarky Jay from emerging

Even with all the romance in the air, it didn't stop the cheeky (and snarky) Jay from emerging, as he hilariously snapped photos of his fans trying to mimic his Instagram photo. 

Jay 1: Fans 0.

When you can't hit the #10YearChallenge yet...

While Jay and Hannah haven't been together 10 years (yet), the pair did manage to recreate the almost-exact shot that they took at the exact spot five years ago. We hope to see another photo there five years later.

Jeanette Aw is hard at (all sorts of) work

Apart from working hard at sharpening her pâtissière skills, Jeanette is very much still in love with her showbiz roots, as she let on that she's dived back into directing. While details of her upcoming project have yet to be revealed, we'll be eagerly anticipating what she and her company, Picturesque Films, have in store.
