Jeanette Aw goes 'around the world' in less than 24 hours

This week sure was packed for Jeanette, who flew from Paris, France, in the day, to Tokyo, Japan at night for her work schedules.

One question though – how does the jet-setting actress managed to look so well-rested even after all that time spent flying about? We need her skincare routine, stat!

Just last week, Tay Ying relocated to Shanghai, China to further her acting career after enrolling in acting school there. Since then, she has been kept busy attending school, with her parents, Hong Huifang and Zheng Geping stopping in for a quick visit as well.

Is that Chinese actress Zhou Ying we see?

Once a familiar face on local television screens, Chinese actress Zhou Ying returned to Shanghai in 2013. 

Zheng Geping, Hong Huifang and Tay Ying met up with her for a quick meal to catch up while they were in Shanghai, and we're sure they had loads to talk about after such a long separation – after all, Zhou Ying once played Geping's on-screen daughter in the drama Together.

Chen Yixi dedicates Instagram post to grandfather

"When I was young, Yeye drove a taxi as he could not keep still after retirement. Truth be told, he was quite guilty of using the taxi to ferry me to and from school and was my personal chauffeur way before Grab! Our car-rides were filled with interesting conversations morning and night! (sic)" the actor wrote.

Describing his Yeye as "one cool dude – cheerful, spontaneous, (with) a great sense of humour, optimistic, and a natural at making friends," Yixi also added that "seeing his eyes light up with boyish curiosity and cheeky playfulness affirms my hunch that our creative genes must have come from Yeye!"

"His indomitable spirit, selflessness and ability to seize every moment reminds me everyday to cherish our time with all our loved ones. I am proud to be his grandson and even more proud to call him my Yeye, my #mentor"."

Aww.

Cheryl Wee celebrates her second wedding anniversary

"It’s true, a marriage is really about give and take. We can’t count who gives or takes more; sometimes on certain things Roy gives in more, and sometime I do. But it’s always good to reflect and check in with ourselves if we have been taking too much or giving too little," she mused in her caption. 

Cheryl also shared her appreciation for the little things in life that she shares together with her husband, architect Roy Fong. Happy anniversary!

EXO sends D.O off to to the military

EXO sent their second member off to the military, barely two months after sending off oldest member Xiumin.

This time round, D.O shaved his head in preparation for his time in the military, with all his members coming together to send him off one last time. EXO's fans were especially heartened to catch a glimpse of Chinese member Lay (also known as Zhang Yixing) in the photos. The singer, who is currently based in China, flew back to Korea just to send D.O off.

No, Jeffrey Xu and Felicia Chin are not married

Jeffrey's Instagram caption drew in boatloads of congratulatory comments from fans and netizens alike who had zeroed in on the words "newly-weds".

However, as Felicia explained in her own comment, Jeffrey meant that if a couple was unable to meet for a long period of time, their reunion would be even sweeter. She also added that she was leaving a comment on behalf of Jeffrey, who was currently in an airplane, blissfully unaware of the storm his caption stirred up.

Donnie Yen kicks things up a notch with his take on the bottle cap challenge

Leave it to Donnie Yen to absolutely destroy the bottle cap challenge with his take on the latest craze to sweep the interwebs. Not satisfied with merely taking the cap off a plastic bottle with his powerful kick, the martial artist attempts the challenge blindfolded, and succeeds, of course. Hats (or should we say, blindfolds) off to Donnie.

Taiwanese stars get in on the challenge as well

From Prince Chiu's black-and-white affair, to Hannah Quinlivan's sunglass-topped pose, looks like the Taiwanese stars possess a flair for theatrics! We wonder, what will Hannah's husband, Jay Chou do to one-up her in his own attempt at the challenge? (Ed's note: Hannah tagged Jay to take up the mantle in her own post).

Outtakes and just plain hilarious takes on the bottle cap challenge

First, we have Suhaimi Yusof, whose successful attempt at the bottle cap challenge was swiftly rewarded with a gulp of cold water. Then, we had K-Pop boy group EXO, who spent many minutes mopping up the floors after a number of attempts at the challenge (don't worry, they succeeded in the end, despite member Chanyeol suffering a few kicks to his hand in the process).

Next, we had Wilber Pan, who regaled us with a slow-motion video of him falling dramatically in his attempt at the challenge.

Finally, Benjamin Kheng gives a new meaning to the challenge, by literally using his head to headbutt the entire bottle. However, the jury's still out on whether that was a successful challenge... or not.
