Our favourite twins celebrate their hatchday

The thing about having twins is that you'll never forget each other's birthday - unless, of course, you forget your own. Hayley and Jayley posted adorable birthday selfies on Instagram this week, each with a dedication to their other twin. Happy 26th birthday, girls!

Sonia celebrated her hatchday this week she's looking ever-so-fabulous, especially with that huge unicorn balloon in hand. Among the celebrations she had was with the 987FM crew, and while we didn't have a first-hand experience of their celebrations, we're sure they all had a ball of a time. Happy belated birthday, Sonia!

BTS V celebrates his hatchday

BTS' V might have spent his birthday at work, but the rest of his members were there to celebrate with him. He also blessed us with two videos of his adorable pup, Yeontan, this week, which made us feel like Agnes (Despicable Me) when she saw that unicorn plushie. It's. So. Fluffy!!!

Bonus: We don't know when this photo was taken, but Jin sent his birthday wishes with this old photo of V. Who needs enemies when you have 'brothers' like these?

"Started our vacation for just the two of us!" Shaun declared on his Instagram page. While he didn't reveal where he and his wife are going, we're sure they'll have a ball of the time. We just hope they don't miss their little ones too much once they're there.

Tay Ping Hui spends Christmas away from home

Ping Hui, who is currently in Shanghai working on his next project, has been updating his social media frequently as he shares snippets of working in China. Having to spend the festive season away from home seems to have him feeling a tad homesick, but he seems to be having fun as well - just look at that "quintessential pose" he struck in his military uniform!

Jay Chou, Hannah Quinlivan celebrate their wedding anniversary

Two years and two kids later, Jay and Hannah celebrated their second wedding anniversary with a quiet stroll on the streets, posting a rare couple selfie to commemorate the occasion. With Hannah expressing her wish to have a third child, we're wondering if this time next year, they'll have baby number three added to the family.

We're not sure if we should hashtag this as #squadgoals or #familygoals, but this family is definitely #goals. From the matchy-matchy outfits to the heavy editing to give these shots an even more Christmas-y feel, we're loving this series of snaps from them.

Zhu Hou Ren celebrates his 32nd wedding anniversary

Now, here's a keeper. Not only does Hou Ren da ge remember his exact wedding date - December 28, 1985, but he also wrote a touching dedication to his wife, which read, "What I've protected for the past 32 years isn't our (wedding) vows, but the countless days that we've spent on the same boat. Because I've had you by my side, I'm content with everything I have. #I'veneverscoldedyouinthepast32years #Notevenonce #Iwon'teverdoit"

Say it isn't so. We don't know how long this butterfly gang pose is going to stay, but consider us tickled that even Joel's dad, Zhu Hou Ren, has been inducted into the club. 

When Jayley Woo commented on Joel's post asking for a copyright fee for the pose, Hou Ren da ge replied with, "I am COPYKING (sic)"! Epic.

Aden Chen is enchanted by Kate Pang's adorable tangyuan

To be fair, we'd be obsessed with Kate's exquisite tangyuan (glutinous rice balls) too. She painstakingly put together these flower-shaped creations, but later lamented in her Instagram post that "after you eat it, it's all the same anyway".

Edison Chen and family go on holiday

Edison Chen, Qin Shupei and their baby girl went on holiday this week, and while they didn't share where they're heading to, we're wondering if the garland around little Alaia's neck is a clue to where the family of three is jetting to.

We don't know how they managed to find time in their hectic schedules to chill out together, but we also can't help imagining how epic a collaboration between these three artistes would be.

Dear 2018, please make it happen.

"In the blink of an eye, we're in our fifth year (together). Apart from eating, pooping and sleeping, what I look forward most to is going home to see you! That's because you're my greatest love!" Romeo gushed on his Instagram. Tigger, however, doesn't look all too pleased with having to pose for the camera - don't worry Romeo, we're pretty sure it's a schnauzer thing.

"This filming location is very unsafe. Every time I wrap up a day's work I discover hundreds of weird photos in my phone! Stop wasting my memory space!" Along with Sheila's post were a handful of these photos, courtesy of Desmond Tan and Carrie Wong. 

Here's a word of advice from us: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. We'll look forward to your snaps flooding someone else's phone soon, Sheila!

Shane and Kimberly came back from their trip to Korea, but still didn't get sick of each other and spent a day out, taking the bus home after. We can't pinpoint what exactly makes this couple so adorable, but they just are. #relationshipgoals right there.

This is a bond that looks like it'll last forever. Despite knowing each other for years, the S.H.E girls seem to only get closer, spending the festive season together. They also released a video greeting to their fans ahead of the New Year, and were absolutely adorable in it.
