Nathan Hartono tops Sing! China with the higest score; makes it into finals

Trust Nathan to make a joke out of his grade (93.65), the highest score out of all 12 Sing! China contenders, by calling it the  "highest Chinese score" he has gotten since primary 3. We love his wicked sense of humour, but we're even more proud of him for being the first Singaporean for making it into the finals of Sing! China and coming in #1. Way to go, Nathan!

Julie Tan receives a warm welcome home from her fanclub

It’s home sweet home for Julie after spending three months in the U S of A and wrapping up her short training programme in New York and touring Los Angeles. The actress received a big welcome from her official fanclub, JT Empire, complete with flower bouquets and a banner. We can’t wait for her to show us (and the TV audience) what she has learned from her time in America.

Fann Wong celebrates her 7th wedding anniversary with her little lover

With hubby Christopher Lee far and away in Xiamen, China, filming a new drama series, Yi Lu Fan Hua Song, he had no choice but to entrust the duty of spending his wedding anniversary to a little cupid, also known as Zed Zed. PS: Chris, we heard that your wife’s open to the idea of having a second kid – but first, you need to be physically home for it to actually happen.

In other related news, take a trip down memory lane and revisit this golden couple’s joint TV projects together.

Keep calm… and remember… 40 is the new 20: Yvonne Lim turns 4-0 with a surprise video

She may be far away in Taiwan, but Yvonne turned 40 with well wishes and greetings from all her celebrity pals and industry friends in Singapore. The video, which was specially put together by her husband Alex Tien and an artiste manager, had the homesick actress sobbing in tears. Aww.

Jean Danker spends her last birthday as a swingin’ singleton

Next year in September, Jean would be celebrating her birthday as someone else’s missus (she is tying the knot to her deejay beau Glenn Ong in December this year). So she celebrated her last year as a singleton with a big pool party over the weekend. Gotta love how her cheeky friends got her ‘bridechilla’ balloons because she’s truly one chillax and easygoing bride when it comes to wedding prep.

The 118 Season 2 family embark on a spooky adventure together

The family that gets spooked together, stays together. Filming may have begun for the 118 Season 2 cast, but that doesn’t mean they can’t squeeze out a teeny-weeny bit of time for some fun. After all, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Alyssa Chia surprises everyone with announcement of baby no. 3

Well, that escalated quickly! Guess who’s preggers again? Looks like little Bubu will have a new baby sister or brother to dote on in less than a year’s time. Will this mean she might lose her current ‘youngest internet celebrity’ title too? We’ll just have to wait and see. Meanwhile, when is Xiu Jie Kai going to marry Alyssa?

The battle of the lookalikes for the Angs

In this week’s edition of who looked-alike better, we have competitive parents Ang Junyang and Candyce Toh battling it out for the title of the parent whom Azalea takes after. What do you think? We say the little toddler has inherited the best of her mum and dad – Candyce’s bright eyes and Junyang’s nose and cherubic smile.

Who’s the biggest star on the set of C.L.I.F. 4? The baby, of course

On the topic of babies… we learned that Ah Ge Li Nanxing and Rui En are not the biggest stars on set, thanks to all the stories told by the actors during the drama’s press conference. But look what we have here – actual evidence of everyone pampering and fussing over baby Cara, who acts as the couple’s baby, Matthew, in the drama (yes, that’s a baby girl playing a boy in the show).

There’s never a dull moment with Rui En and Li Nanxing on set together

We had a glimpse at their on-set ribbing, but as the drama draws to a close, more BTS pictures of the duo having fun on set surfaced. What’s Rui En doing with her hand over Bonnie Loo’s “dead body”? Transmitting some bodily warmth perhaps? And why is Nanxing rolling his eyes while co-star Rui En is rehearsing her lines?

#Throwback with Huang Biren’s brood

‘Tiger Mum’ Biren’s getting all nostalgic now that her youngest daughter has graduated from Kindergarten and dug out old pictures of her eldest son and daughter in their respective graduation robes. Time sure flies, doesn’t it?

G.E.M cosplays as Ne Zha, or at least, that’s what a fan thinks

Even though it was an unintentional attempt to dress and look like the folklore character. Hong Kong pop singer G.E.M got the look of Chinese deity Nezha down pat, right down to the hair style and outfit colour choice. She just needs to up her blusher game. Teehee.

#RomeoPhotologue strikes again

Romeo’s keen interest in photography is no secret – he often doubles up as a BTS (behind-the-scenes) photographer on drama sets and, we believe, is tasked to be the official photographer on work trips with his fellow artistes. Here, he shares a few moody, black and white shots he took of Paige Chua and Ah Jie Zoe Tay during their recent trip to Cambodia. Nice!

Baby Brooklyn is back on the mend

After taking an unexpected fall that gave everyone – including her parents – a mild panic attack, it looks like little Brooklyn’s healing well. Phew! And because she’s unable to crawl about, the toddler’s has no choice but to walk. Guess Carole Lin and her husband have to get ready for running after their little one now.

Sarang’s omma Yano Shiho parties with David Beckham

Look which Japanese supermodel was spotted having a grand ol’ time at a swanky dinner party hosted by Marina Bay Sands a few days ago? For a moment, we almost thought Superman Returns’ Choo Sarang’s mum Yano Shiho was in Singapore for this very event, alas the party took place in Tokyo, Japan and the very hot mama even sat at the same table with David Beckham. Guess who couldn’t resist snapping a picture with the English footballer?

Everyone’s favourite royals tour Canada

Last but not least, as we come to the end of the gallery, we’ve also come to the end of the royal family’s week-long tour in Canada. So long, Prince George and Princess Charlotte! Thanks for all the cute moments on tour – especially Georgie’s epic snub to the Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s high-five and handshake requests.
