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

This week, while most of the attention was on Lin Chi-ling and EXILE's Akira after their shocking wedding announcement, there were plenty of other things going on.

For one, the vacation shots were even more stunning than usual (yes, Jeanette and Fann, we're looking at you), and we even caught a glimpse of a familiar face we haven't seen in a while.

Read on for the full roundup!

What better way to spend your weekend than with the sun, sand and sea? Although honestly, we have to admit that we're a tad envious at how amazing Ah Jie looks even while off duty.

Nathan Hartono's best post ever

If you spend enough time on Instagram, you would've seen the (annoying) comments constantly asking to buy old currency. Nathan's reaction, we must say, definitely put a smile on our faces.

Zhang Zhen Huan surprises us in more than one way

It's been a while since Zhen Huan returned to China, and we were surprised this week to see how much weight he's lost in this recent picture.

The even bigger surprise, however, was to see that he snapped a photo with former actor Yuan Shuai, whom we haven't seen in a while.

Xiang Yun, Edmund Chen celebrate 30 years of marriage

While the couple couldn't be physically together to celebrate their milestone, Xiang Yun shared a hilarious anecdote. 

"My husband sent me a message this morning. "Happy anniversary. You've been my wife for 30 years (and) I know you're very honoured. This is what you deserve, so you don't have to feel thankful."

Her reply? "I'm thankful for your companionship, because it's made me realise how interesting life can be."

Lin Chi-ling, Akira from J-Pop band EXILE tie the knot

These days, it seems like going Insta-official is the trend - although we must say that this wedding announcement, which came even before their dating one, caught us off guard.

It was especially so because Taiwan media, who are constantly asking Chi-ling about her love life, were in the dark about her relationship with Akira as well. The both of them are true ninjas.

Zheng Geping shares with us the reality of a director's life

While most actors call it a day after filming wraps, Geping has given us a glimpse of how hard directors work even after they yell 'That's a wrap!'

"Eyes popping out... looks like panda too (sic),"  he shared, which probably means that he and his team haven't been getting much sleep. Jiayou!

Sheila Sim counts her blessings on her hatchday

One part of Sheila's caption this year hit particularly hard: "Birthdays are really just another day. It's the special people in it that makes that day extra special. Thank you for the people who made it special for me year after year," she mused.

Cheers to that.

Rainie Yang's very ordinary birthday wish

"I came down with a terrible flu towards the end of May," Rainie wrote in her birthday post. "Thankfully, I managed to finish my work on time and I wrapped up the concerts on June 1 and 2 without a hitch. Unexpectedly, I came down with a flu again the day before although I took such a long time to recover. That's why I say that my biggest wish is for everyone to stay healthy."

Philip and Brendan Lee's happy hour

The men in Myolie Wu's life were having happy hour together, but it's not what you think - what they were having is apple juice.

We're just looking forward to the day they do a #20yearschallenge with beer instead.

How do you like Jordan Chan and Cherrie Ying's editing skills?

While most people posted photos of dumplings on the dumpling festival, Jordan Chan and Cherrie Ying tickled many with this hilarious snap, which was designed to look like a movie poster.

Bonus points for Jasper's hand-drawn clothes and bamboo leaves.

Alaia Chen may only be two, but this little girl seems to already have taken an interest in photography. Will she be the next celebrity offspring who will upload shots of her parents?

Are we looking at the next NBA superstar?

"Future basketball player?! Any coaches looking to recruit?" Janet Hsieh wrote on her Instagram as her little one, Egan, took on the big guys (literally) in this basketball shoot off. Too. Cute.

We were wondering what was up with Zed as Christopher personally started cutting his hair, but our curiousity was soon sated...

As it turns out, the whole family jetted off to Perth for a holiday, and Zed clearly had a whale of a time at the beach.

Christopher Lee wins best dad award

Behind these pretty shots is a story of true love: the family headed to Lake Cave, but what they didn't expect was the sheer amount of physical stamina needed to climb all the stairs.

Zed couldn't complete the climb on his own, so his dad carried him all the way up and down the thousands of steps.

Jeanette Aw's picture-perfect vacation

Jeanette, who is in Greece, made sure to constantly update us on her adventures as she visited the Parthenon and Temple of Apollo, among other locations.

We can only imagine how much more stunning these places would look in real life.

When Chow Yun Fat is around, there's probably either a welfie or a hiking expedition involved. By the looks of this snap from Michelle Yim's Instagram, they got lucky and did both.
