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

Hello Halloween! This week was filled with loads of crazy make-up and costumes, as celebrities (and their kids) went all out with their Halloween #OOTDs. Aside from that, we were greeted with a surprise wedding announcement from a local celeb earlier this week, along with a serious dose of holiday envy.

Belinda Lee ties the knot!

The actress dropped a bombshell announcement on everyone earlier this week, when she announced that she had tied the knot with her beau, American architect David Moore. The couple’s nuptials were witnessed by around 100 guests, including local celebrity couple Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu, as well as Belinda’s Peace & Prosperity cast mates, Xiang Yun and Michelle Wong. After her announcement, a number of Belinda’s celebrity friends and colleagues left congratulatory messages for the newlyweds as well.

Congrats, Belinda!

Dennis Chew and Sharon Au celebrate 30 years of friendship

The old friends (they’ve known each other for 30 years) met up for a meal and catch-up session in Paris recently. 

In their separate posts, both Dennis and Sharon mused about their friendship, and their lives before making their showbiz debuts.

“My first night in Paris, I had an authentic French dinner. It was really delicious,” Dennis wrote in his caption. “As you (Sharon) were eating, you suddenly turned to me and said, ‘Tonight's meal really touched (my heart), and I thought of how you and I, along with your mum and younger sister, shared a packet of chicken rice together 30 years ago’. Your eyes were red. At that time, we were poor, but very happy. Today, all of us are doing well, with no need to worry about being able to feed ourselves. But, we’ve all experienced how society complicates matters. It’s not easy to be happy. That night, the simple meal (we had) was so comforting. The cold weather outside contrasted perfectly with the warmth we felt in our hearts.”

"When we were teenagers, he wrote songs and sang to me at the old HDB playgrounds, we shared our dreams of being actors over a packet of chicken rice. He was in love with my best friend but I was the one who stayed by his side, scriptreading with him for his first TV drama The Future is Mine," reminisced Sharon.

What spell did Amber An cast on her pet cat?

With a quick wave of her pumpkin wand, Amber, who’s all dressed up as a witch, somehow managed to transform the graceful, photoshoot-ready feline into a very displeased cat. Oops.

Christopher’s costume reminds us of a last minute, "what do we have lying around the house” affair, but we’ll give him a pass for being eco-friendly, at the very least. Plus, Fann and Zed’s outfits are gorgeous as well, so that’s another plus. Poor Zed doesn’t look too pleased to be the subject of a jump-scare though. Oops

Autumn is officially here in Korea, and the many pictures of the golden-hued autumn foliage Nick and Hong Ling posted over the last week are testament to that. Oh, if only Singapore had four seasons as well.

Looks like jetlag is hitting Janet Hsieh’s son hard!

The short video Janet posted of little Egan nodding off in the middle of his dinner is way too adorable. For extra cuteness, watch till the very end, when Janet asks Egan if he wants to head over to his bed instead.

Jiro Wang wins the award for the best Halloween costumes, hands-down

The singer-actor was seriously unrecognisable in the first get-up he posted (right). Kudos to Jiro for the super realistic make-up job. But of course, we reckon the second costume (left), would be more feasible for a night out.

Wang Leehom’s wife, Li Jinglei and the couple’s two daughters look positively sweet in their identical Mary Poppins costumes, complete with the character's iconic umbrella. 

On the other hand, Moses and Aimee Chan and their three kids are 100% ready for a night filled with blood-sucking and other vampiric activities. Too cute!

Looks like Woody from the Toy Story movie series and his love interest, Bo Peep are super popular amongst couples this year, with celebrity couple Hannah Quinlivan and Jay Chou dressing up as them, complete with the toy figurines of their respective characters as their cherry on top.

We also love how Yvonne and her family really leaned in to the "past life lovers” saying, with little Alexa being the Bo Peep to Alex’s Woody, and AJ being the Buzz Lightyear to Yvonne’s Jessie.

Nothing but the best for Sonia Sui’s son

The model-actress shared on Instagram that she had originally planned to buy a “firefighter's costume from Costco” for Max’s Halloween costume this year. However, the 4-year-old decided that he wanted to be a hedgehog instead. After looking high and low for a ready-made costume, Sonia finally threw in the towel, and decided to DIY one herself, working tirelessly for three days to come up with Max’s hedgehog shell. Kudos to her.

When you don’t have a costume for Halloween…

Make like Nathan Hartono did, and take the chance to show off your art skills. We gotta say though, that last Benjamin Kheng ‘costume' just feels like there’s a little something off. If only we could put our finger on it…

"I can understand why the kids will breakdown so badly when their mom pretended to have finished their candies the day after Halloween," Sheila wrote in her caption, referencing a popular prank parents like to pull on their unsuspecting kids, after going for her very first trick-or-treat session, adding, "It is hard work!"

Andie Chen spends some quality time with his family in Ipoh

Two weeks ago, Andie, who is shooting a drama in Ipoh, had posted that he did not have "the courage to look at my kids’ photos cos I know I’ll miss them too much."

We guess that everything's a-ok for the father-of-two now, after a short visit from his wife, actress Kate Pang and their two kids earlier this week. Apart from frolicking in the pool, the family also visited a petting zoo, with Aden and Avery even mustering up the courage to feed the animals by hand.

Noah Yap receives far more love than he bargained for

"'Never bite the hand that feeds you.' Should’ve told that to the kangaroo,” Noah wrote in his caption. On the bright side, at least he got some good photos out of it?

Peifen’s video of little Luke proudly showing off his ‘baby' had us cracking up in the middle of the day. We gotta say, that is one bouncy baby bump. Almost ball-like, in fact. Hmm…​​​​​​​

Last week, Christine Fan and Blackie Chen dropped by Singapore ahead of the former's concert in Singapore later this month with their kids for a holiday. As it turns out, other than heading to Universal Studios together, Vivian Hsu also treated the visiting family to dinner, and invited the couple's twin boys, Ryan and River, over for a playdate with her son Dalton.
