Shaun Chen: Bread Bae?

Filming of Blessings 2 in Malaysia is still going strong (until mid-May or so, we’re told), and the cast has been regularly blessing (heh) us with various behind-the-scenes looks at the process.

Here, we see Shaun furiously kneading dough in the style of famed chef and meme king Nusret Gökçe, better known as “Salt Bae” for the way he flamboyantly prepares meat and sprinkles seasoning over it. Guess we’re calling Shaun “Bread Bae” from now on. Or is it “Bae-ker”? Never mind.

Taufik Batisah celebrates third wedding anniversary

On April 4 three years ago, our first Singapore Idol married his best friend Sheena Akbal. He marked the occasion by sharing a gorgeous photo from their wedding day along with a super sweet caption that reads, “3 years ago today I married my bestfriend. Since then I've been trying to be the husband that she deserves. Please allow me to continue learning to be the best partner for you & shower you with everything you deserve. Thank you for loving me sayang. (sic)”

Congrats, you two adorable lovebirds!

Vanness Wu shares star-studded #throwback

We can all forget about ever posting throwback photos ever again because Vanness’s nostalgic old pic, taken in 2003, just blew everyone else’s out of the water. Also, we must say: Wang Lee Hom, Stefanie Sun, Karen Mok, A-Mei, Jay Chou and Vanness all aged really well.

SM stars head to Dubai

Imagine getting on a plane and discovering you’re sharing a flight with this bunch. A few days ago, some of the K-pop world’s biggest stars from SM Entertainment – including EXO, Super Junior, TVXQ, Girls’ Generation and more – took off for Dubai for the SMTown Live concert, which is being held in the city for the very first time.

Fans were treated to a seemingly never-ending barrage of wefies and photos of the idols heading to the desert city even before lift-off. When will we ever look this good during long-distance travel?

Chen Xiu Huan runs into JJ Lin on the plane

Speaking of running into famous people on the plane, that's exactly what happened to Chen Xiu Huan and JJ Lin, who, to quote Xiu Huan's caption in her wefie with the singer, were destined to sit on the same plane together. The rest of us should be so lucky...

Jay Chou shows off his balloon-twisting skills

Is there anything the King of Mandopop cannot do? We know he’s great at magic and music (duh), but we certainly didn’t know he could skilfully fashion a poodle out of a balloon so effortlessly.

Fiona Xie’s not-so-kid-friendly posts

Most other vacation photos in the Maldives we’ve seen are bright, sunny, blue, and well, safe for viewing at work.

The famously provocative actress is clearly not one for adhering to the norm, and instead chose to treat her followers to shots of her ample cleavage and – if that woman is really her, which she does not directly address – perky derriere as well. Enjoy the view, folks.

Bath time with Andie and Aden Chen

What? More nudity on our feed? At least it’s a lot more innocent-looking this time, especially with the cute sticker covering Aden’s vital bits. We do have two important question, though: is Andie fully in the buff, and what on earth is happening in the photo?

Desmond Tan shares thoughts about first serial killer role

Having caught the first few episodes of Channel 5’s Code of Law ourselves, we couldn’t help but feel a chill up our spine at the sight of Desmond’s murderous psycho character on his feed (#triggered).

After getting over the initial shock, we delved into the actor’s in-depth ramble about this “roller coaster ride” of making the series. “As I was researching on various serial murders, the brutal truth of the loneliness and lostness (sic) that they went through is scarily depressing. As much as I hate their crimes, I pity their mental ordeals they went through. Living under their skin for the few months wasn't an easy task”, he wrote.

Well, he survived, and now we get to see – and be scared by – the fruits of his labour.

Edmund Chen and Chen Yixi certainly look like they’re having a nice, relaxing time in Bali. Here they are getting their Zen on at a holy water temple in Ubud.

Super Junior's Kyuhyun joins Instagram

The group's youngest member, who was previously only active on Twitter, has finally become the latest idol to hop onto the Instagram bandwagon (about time).

Fans have Changmin to thank for the development - according to Kyuhyun's tweet announcing his new account, it was the TVXQ member that persuaded him to join Instagram. We sure there will be plenty more sassy updates (and snarky comments on his band mates' posts) after Kyuhyun is discharged from his mandatory military service in May next year.

Elvin Ng’s fan club turns 13

Has it really been 13 years since Elvinology was born? Like Elvin pointed out in his sweet dedication post to his devotees, time really does fly.

“You’ve been everywhere! From the events and gatherings, to sending me off and receiving me home at the airport, to flying with me to the States and Iceland, to just always being there for me”, he wrote. “To those of you who are still here, have just joined, or have left and become busy with other things in life, to you who’ve ever dedicated a part of your time and heart to this family of #Elvinology, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Awww…

Former 'Sing China' finalists reunite at Jay Chou musical

We love how Nathan Hartono and Joanna Dong, who both chose Jay Chou as their coaches during their respective stints on Sing China, showed up to support The Secret, a musical adaptation of the Mandopop superstar's directorial debut, together.

In her post, Joanna promised "polished performances from the cast" and that  "fans of Jay and the movie will enjoy how his hits are woven into the story". Will you be catching the show?

The actor/host has been giving us major wanderlust the whole week with his holiday pictures surrounded by sun, sand and sea in Bora Bora. He even got to swim with sharks and stingrays!

Super Junior-M’s Henry celebrates 10th anniversary

The singer officially marks a decade in the industry today (Apr 8), but he’s been showered with gifts since much earlier in the week, such as a gorgeous flower-topped cake and a pair of microphones. Congrats, Henry! Here’s to another 10 years and more.

Ivy Chen reunites with Super Junior’s Siwon and Donghae

It’s been seven – yes, seven – years since Taiwanese drama Skip Beat was aired, but its three lead actors Ivy, Siwon and Donghae have still kept in touch after all this time, as evidenced by this heart-warming picture of their reunion in Taipei, where Super Junior visited for their concert tour. Can anyone say #friendshipgoals?

SHINee remember Jonghyun on his birthday

Today (Apr 8) was supposed to be the 28th birthday of SHINee member Jonghyun, who passed away in December last year.

Although he is no longer with us, the group's official Instagram account posted a touching tribute to mark the occasion. His band mate Key also shared a heart-breaking post wishing Jonghyun a happy birthday, and that he loves and misses him very much.

Jacelyn Tay’s desert family getaway

The sandy dunes of Dubai aren’t exactly the most conventional vacation spot for a couple with a young kid, but that just means that little Zavier will have cooler family pictures to look back on when he’s older. He even got to ride a camel with his mama! Lucky kid.

Kate Pang proves Avery is a mini version of her

It’s not that anyone should be surprised that a daughter would look like her own mother when she was much younger, but we found the comparison amusing nonetheless.

Joanne Peh’s daughter: jeweller in the making?

The actress and proud mama showed off a colourful gemstone bracelet (or is it a watch?) that Baby Qi made for her, clearly valuing it more than all the other expensive accessories she has ever worn in her life.
