What the stars did this week

It seems like everyone is in a hurry to tie the knot before August arrives. We started the week with the double Js (Jesseca Liu and Jeremy Chan) dropping a bombshell about their nuptials on Sunday night followed by former actor Vincent Ng’s hush-hush flash marriage to a 38-year-old lady whom he met in January this year. Will Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu be next to walk down the aisle? Only time will tell.

Click on to read about everything else that happened this week, from JJ Lin’s now-famous Wimbledon selfie to baby Azalea's first mic drop.

The couple promised to share news of their wedding on the day itself and that they did last Sunday. First came an Instagram update proclaiming that they’re family – then came a deluge of wedding photos taken at their intimate and handphone-free nuptials and dinner held in Langkawi. Congratulations!

Another former actor ties the knot!

This was a wedding no one saw coming. Vincent Ng married Mei Ling, a 38-year-old lady who reportedly works in the shipping industry, in a low-profile wedding ceremony last Saturday. Celebs on the guest list can be counted with one hand: Zheng Ge Ping, Hong Hui Fang, Alfred Sim, Tay Kewei and Sora Ma. For those of you curious about how the bride looks, the next slide should interest you.

Azalea Ang perfects her mic drop

It looks like Candyce Toh and Ang Junyang’s performing genes (specifically, singing) runs in their firstborn’s blood. Azalea was seen toying around with the mic, singing loudly and ending her performance with a mic drop. How apt.
