Diana Ser’s daughter declares that her mother is… a 78-year-old?

Diana recounted a conversation her husband had with their kids a few days ago, when he had asked them if they knew how old Diana was. The couple’s youngest, Jaymee, immediately piped up an answer, declaring that ma ma is 78 this year. Ah, kids and their creative liberties when it comes to estimating the age of anyone over the age of 20. At least it does make for an interesting anecdote!

“15 years ago, we were dormitory mates, living opposite each other," Yumi of BY2 reminisced in her caption. The duo and JJ had met by chance backstage, along with their mentors, whom she described as the “men who made it all possible” for them to succeed. Since then, both JJ and the girls of BY2 have grown to become bona fide stars and celebrities in their own rights, releasing hit after hit.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Local celebrity edition

Chances are, you’ve probably seen pictures of this floating about online, be it on Facebook or Instagram. We’re particularly tickled by the durian in Richard Low’s hand, which is supposed to be a replacement for the all-powerful gauntlet, we guess. Do you agree with the pairings, or would you rather replace some of the picks?

Chen Yixi and James Seah, who are currently filming Channel 8 drama My One In A Million, put on their game faces and police gear (handguns included) to pose for a suave picture together. But, what caught our attention were the comments, which had Alaric Tay taking the opportunity to slide in a quick jab at Yixi, and Edmund Chen, who couldn't help but to feel proud of his son. Aww...

Mama Chou joins the family on vacation overseas

With Jay Chou taking his concert tour overseas, the 40-year-old’s wife, Hannah Quinlivan, as well as their two kids have been following the multi-hyphenate around Europe. In particular, it seems that Romeo had a whale of a time in Paris, chasing ducks around, and even attending his very first Jay Chou concert, to catch his dad in action. Even Jay’s mother, who’s often known as ‘Mama Chou’, tagged along for the Paris leg of the concert tour.

Romeo Tan makes the most of his time in Taipei

Romeo made use of his time off whilst for filming in Taipei, Taiwan to hike up Junjianyen Mountain, which he praised for having the best view of the city, and we’re inclined to agree. Just look at that gorgeous city view, fringed by lush greenery.

Chen Yixi sketches Michelle Wong as a period drama character

Michelle Wong shared in her Instagram Story a picture of Yixi’s sketch of her as a character in a period drama for a scene that they were filming for My One In A Million. While we’re blown away by the lifelike rendering, that particular getup had us thinking of another Michelle – Taiwanese actress Michelle Chen, who is probably best known for her role as  Xiao Long Nu in the period drama Return of the Condor Heroes.

The second-gen actresses meet up for a hotpot meal

The girls met up for a scrumptious hotpot dinner, with some live entertainment in the form of a hand-pulled noodles performance (that almost knocked over some glasses) prepared by Shalynn Tsai. Stick to your day job, Shalynn!
