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

What a week it's been. Apart from celebrating multiple birthdays (yay!) and seeing celeb pals having well-deserved catch-up sessions (double yay!), we were also treated to warm fuzzy feelings as we witnessed the power of a mother's love.

Read on for the full roundup!

What are Aden and Avery up to?

"It looks like they're ready to start their wrestling training," either Kate or Andie (though we're wagering on the former) captioned this photo.

We sure hope that poor Avery is given a couple more years (and intensive training) before she has to take on her big brother in the ring.

Gaile Lok approaches her due date

Gaile, who is at the 32-week mark of her pregnancy, shared that she has since seen her belly grow and double in size from three weeks ago.

"I can feel my nervousness starting to kick in and being overwhelmed with excitement, so many emotions and never enough words to describe," she admitted. "I’m optimistic, not naive, I know that with pregnancy anything can happen, especially being pregnant at a mature age. But I believe everything happens for a reason and all I can do is be mindful, take precautions, have compassion and love for my pregnancy as stressing out over something that hasn’t happened is not healthy, nor helpful or change anything that was meant to happen."

Well said, and we'll be looking forward to seeing your little one soon!

"I traveled 25+ hours to be able to do this for just two days before flying 25+ hours back to work... Yup. Worth every second!" Janet declared.

No wonder they say that a mother's love is unconditional.

Kate Pang reflects on how birthdays have changed for her

"After having children, we've had to relight the candles on birthday cakes multiple times just so that everyone can get their turn at doing so," the birthday girl wrote. "I'm thankful to my family's for helping me a working woman who can juggle both my family and my career."

Maxi Lim celebrates his hatchday

What better way to celebrate Maxi's birthday than with an #EatBro cake?

We can't say that we know exactly what this phrase means, but when you see it on a regular basis (both in captions and comments), we'd feel odd if there was anything else written on his cake.

Jay Chou hangs out with Hathaway

Jay Chou shared that he was having a "romantic moment" with his "lover from a past life" - in other words, his daughter, while in Paris.

While we're pretty sure the city of love evokes all sorts of warm fluzzy feelings, all our attention is on Hathaway, who looks ever the fashionista.

Quan Yi Fong goes back to her pixie cut

After two years, Yi Fong is back with her signature short crop, as she shared snippets of a conversation she had with her daughter before she went for her haircut.

"Don't you want people to say that your mum looks warm and approachable?" she asked.

Eleanor responded with, "The problem is that you're not. Even if you keep your hair long, you're not (warm and approachable)!" Touché.

Seungri announces retirement

It's been a shocking week, to say the least, for the Korean entertainment industry as Seungri, along with Jung Joon Young, FTISLAND’s Choi Jong Hoon, Highlight’s Yong Junhyung and CNBLUE's Lee Jonghyun were confirmed to have been involved in the high-profile scandal that has rocked South Korea.

Seungri has since announced his showbiz retirement, with agency YG Entertainment adding that they have terminated their contract with the BIGBANG member.

The men have been alleged to be involved in facilitating prostitution, filming and circulating hidden camera videos of sexual encounters, police bribery, rape, and drug abuse. 

As investigations are still ongoing, more names may be revealed in the days to come.

Yixi's caption of, “What I think I look like” versus “what I really am” sums this up perfectly.

Jeanette Aw takes on a new challenge

"Learning to make curry puffs because I like to eat them," Jeanette quipped in her caption.

She thinks her puffs taste "pretty amazing", and we're guessing that her teacher allowing her to put as much filling as she wants into each pastry has something to do with that.

Xiu Jie Kai, Alyssa Chia's daughter BoBo turns 2

And what a party they threw for her! 

In his caption, Jie Kai mused, "Looking at the unique way that you explore the world every day, I'm always tickled by the way you express yourself. I hope you always remember this unique trait of yours."
