Insta-buzz: What the stars were up to this week

What a week it's been. Jack Neo received the biggest (and happiest) promotion of his life as he has officially become a grandfather, while Xu Bin celebrated his first wedding anniversary with a super-sweet dedication to his wife. 

Meanwhile, we were also treated to much Halloween fun, all while catching up with the jet-setting stars in our lives.

Hong Ling, Nick Teo embark on swim routine

Now that they've gone public - they no longer need to keep their relationship under wraps. Hong Ling and Nick kicked off their exercise regime with a 20-lap swim earlier this week. However, Nick's caption on a similar post had us chuckling as he wondered out loud how long they can keep it up. Well, we'll guess we'll have to find out.

Zhang Zhen Huan and Sally Pan are very, very much in love

As evidenced by the couple shots that seem to get sweeter and sweeter with every passing week, we sometimes wonder if this pair is actually revving up for a wedding photoshoot. Just saying.

Earlier this year, Jack confirmed that he would be promoted to the ranks of grandfather as his daughter, Ethel, is expecting. This week, the family welcomed the latest addition as Flynn met the world for the very first time.

Jack uploaded an entire album of photos on his Facebook, and looking at this adorable little one, we can only say that we completely understand why.

George Young, Janet Hsieh have fun on Egan's first Halloween

Egan wasn't even a month old the last time Halloween rolled around last year, which made this year's festivities the first time the little one celebrated the occasion. To commemorate Egan's first Halloween, the entire family dressed up in matchy-matchy outfits, and we must say, we're digging this ensemble so much.

What's Halloween without nightmare-worthy outfits?

There's definitely more than one character that we wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley, and we're torn between which is the scariest - Tay Ying's, Calvert's or Julie's.

SM Entertainment artistes go all out for Halloween

SM Entertainment's annual Halloween party is an event that everyone looks forward to because of the amazing outfits that the artistes surprise us with yearly.

This time around, the best dressed award went to SHINee's Key, whose Voldemort outfit was super on point (we must say though, he's got the wrong wand), while the first runner up was f(x)'s Luna, whose Groot outfit had everyone guessing who was under the costume for hours.

What do you do when your label mate has a concert in the same city a day apart? Turn up at the said label mate's gig, of course.

Super Junior's Donghae and Eunhyuk first popped up at Taemin's show in Hokkaido, which was held on November 1 and 2, and the SHINee member returned the favour as the Super Junior sub-unit held their first of two shows in the same city on November 3.

Ang Junyang writes touching tribute to Tuffy

Junyang's beloved furkid Tuffy may have crossed the rainbow bridge earlier this year, but he still took the time to pen a lengthy tribute to his dog on what was meant to be his 12th birthday.

He mused, "Always felt u left us too early (...) There is never a day I won’t miss you. I hope you are running freely in Heaven chasing the things you love, eating the things you love. Our family miss you so much. Till we meet again in Heaven. (sic)"

After a long absence from the spotlight, we're glad to see Rui En pop up on our social media feeds on a regular basis these days, and this includes this shot of her looking absolutely glowing as we dive into the first few days of November.

Remember what we said about Rui En popping up more frequently on our social media feeds? This is exactly what we mean - and no, it's not a complaint in the very least.

As he was filming upcoming drama Hello From The Other Side in the day, he was surprised on-set by his wife and daughters. Afterwards, they had a quick meal to commemorate the occasion. Happy birthday, Shaun!

"Happy 8th birthday our little sweet tomboy of a princess! Always here for you!" Jamie gushed on her Instagram, which was accompanied by this adorable family photo.

We do have one question, though - what's Luke looking at?

Xu Bin celebrates his first wedding anniversary

How could we forget the glitzy shindig that was Xu Bin's first of three wedding ceremonies (the other two were held in Xu Bin and Evelyn Wang's respective hometowns in China)?

On the one-year anniversary of his getting hitched, Xu Bin uploaded this shot on his Instagram and captioned it with, "On this day last year, we became husband and wife. Time has passed really quickly, and our child has been born since then! Thank you for everything you’ve given me, and how you’re always quietly giving me your all from behind me and supporting me. Meeting you is the biggest blessing that I’ve received in this life. Happy 1st Anniversary! Happy anniversary, I love you my wife.”

As much as we've riveted by the head-turning pieces (and faces, of course) that are included in this snap, we must say that the real scene-stealer has got to be Richie Koh and Jeremy Chan with their, uh, high-fashion pose that looks straight out of a Twister board game.

Desmond Tan jets off to his dream destinations

After months of non-stop work, Desmond is getting some well deserved R&R in the form of a Europe trip. He first posted a photo of himself at Changi Airport, asking his followers to guess where he was headed to.

He unveiled the answer as he shared that he spent "almost 20 hours of traveling" to arrive at his first destination, Budapest. With his hashtag, #DTeurope2018, we're expecting to see more picture-perfect snaps from locations all over Europe in the coming days.

Denise Camilia's birthday trip runs into trouble

Denise Camilia is off in Italy for her birthday trip, and all seemed to be going well in the land of good pasta and pizza. At least, until she posted a long update on her experience of getting pickpocketed while out shopping. The worst part: the staff gave "nonchalant responses" after she told them what happened, and she has since canceled all her bank cards and lodged a police report.

We can't think of a better weekend getaway than to jet off to Hong Kong and rub shoulders with Charmaine Sheh - whom, we might add, seems to be ageing in reverse. Pray tell us your secrets.

Super Junior's Siwon was invited to speak at Stanford University's Future Visions: Challenges and Possibilities of Korean Studies in North America conference, where he shared more about the process of becoming a Korean idol singer.

After the event, he posted this snap and ended off his caption with, "I hope this event will not only bring more awareness, but also develop into a meaningful study about K-Pop and Korean culture as a whole." Well said.

Tay Ping Hui's weekend activities

"During the weekend, some people feast, some people drink, some people party. Well, I sent my weary body for maintenance..." Ping Hui mused on his Instagram. 

As cowards when it comes to the thought of pain, this snap (just look at those 20 cups!) just convinced us that cupping isn't that high on our to-do list this weekend.
