Rebecca Lim shoots down rumours

With rumours floating around the internet recently, Becks took the opportunity to comment on them once and for all with a long statement.

She wrote, "I sincerely appreciate everyone’s concern with regard to the recent wave of fake news being circulated on multiple online platforms. None of which are true. I am very blessed to be able to do what I love every single day.

It disheartens me to see falsehoods being spread not just about me, but others as well. lt’s becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate what’s real or not online and guard against maliciousness and ill intent. I can only hope for responsible ethical content producers and a discerning audience. 

Am extremely grateful for your support all these years. Thank you so much."

Joanne Peh bids goodbye to the bugs of 2018

Having caught a severe flu bug, along with a stomach virus while on holiday, Joanne, Yuwu and their kids didn't have the best end to 2018, but she happily reported that they're on the mend and are recovering well enough to continue their explorations in Japan, which leads us to the next slide...

An overindulgence in waffles

Having chanced upon what we suppose are life-changing waffles, Joanne proceeded to buy a box of 10 of them even though Yuwu only requested for two. However, seems like they managed to fit all (or at least, most of) them in their stomachs as Yuwu quickly snapped up three waffles shortly after she came back with the box of them.

It's a bittersweet experience for every Singaporean mother when they send their sons off to the army, and Biren was no exception. Sharing that she'll miss him, she continued that it's every man's responsibility to protect the country, and that she'll be rooting for him throughout.

While Alfred was in London on their wedding anniversary, the couple made sure to celebrate in advance with a quiet dinner. In Alfred's post, he mused, ""Let’s enjoy this lovely companionship together forever."

His hashtags, however, was what tickled commenters as he added '#It's Better Not To Write Too Much' and '#Or Else I Won't Know What To Write In Future' to the end of his post.

The two singer-actors worked together on a theme song for dialect drama How Are You?, and released a music video as well. While it took some time to get used to the two of them singing in another language, we must say that we're liking this combination of vocals very, very much.

GOT7's Jackson is the latest victim of JJ Lin's tongue-twister

We never related so much to Jackson as he valiantly attempted to say JJ's tongue-twister before deciding that enough was enough and ripping apart the script instead. We definitely know that feel.

Kang Daniel breaks Instagram record

After Wanna One's contract ended, Daniel promptly opened a new Instagram account, which became the fastest account to hit a million followers on the platform. It's no wonder why, as he's been uploading a range of content from oh-so-handsome selfies to oh-so-fluffy cat photos to "ooh, those proportions" full-body shots of himself showing off his amazingly long legs, along with dance videos to remind everyone that he's a force to be reckoned with.

Tosh received a response in his Instagram messages which had a fan commenting that "lobang (Weiliang's nickanme) is more handsome than you are". In response, he shot back hilariously with, "Rosmah is prettier than you".

He then posted the conversation on his Instagram account, tagging Weiliang and commenting, "Your fans are seriously on another level". In response, Weiliang quipped, "There are still many with good eyes in this world."

May bromance never die.
