Zoe Tay enjoys snowy getaway in Korea

Ah Jie, who turned 50 on Wednesday (Jan 10), embarked on a week-long holiday to Seoul with friends and was greeted by negative-degree winter weather. However, we’re pretty sure she felt all warm and fuzzy inside when she saw this hand-drawn card from one of her sons. Even we did!

Ann Kok celebrates her birthday

Ann turned 45 on Thursday (Jan 11) but one of her birthday cakes had the number 18 on it instead (because let’s face it – she looks closer to a teenager than someone who’s five years away from a quarter of a century old). The social butterfly enjoyed a few celebrations with different groups of friends – both old and new – as well as her fan club, Annchanted Energy.

Hannah Quinlivan throws school sports day-themed celebration for Jay Chou

Jay’s birthday isn’t until the 18th (he’s turning 39), but his wife already threw him a sports day-themed advance celebration called “JAY CUP”, complete with a trophy, uniforms and the rental of an entire basketball court. Their daughter Hathaway was there too, looking adorable in a tiny tracksuit and sneakers of her own.

The birthday boy-to-be himself also shared a lovely group photo of all the attendees and thanked Hannah for putting together the creative shindig, and that it made him feel young again.

Jay Chou shares the stage with Mayday

Just a day after his Lion City gig, Jay jetted back to Taiwan and made a surprise appearance at the last of Mayday’s Taoyuan concerts, where he performed and joked around with them on stage. Okay, but why wasn’t Singapore treated to such an epic event when Jay was in town earlier this month?

Cheryl Wee shows why she married her husband

We must say: pregnancy looks good on the yummy mummy-to-be. Just look at this lovely sneak peek at a recent magazine shoot! But what really got us going “awww” was a shot of her hubby Roy Fong slicing apples for her at 6.30 in the morning, even though she didn’t ask for it. #husbandgoals

Dennis Chew vows to lose weight

Dennis sure incited quite a few laughs in his comment section with this photo of him making a heart with his fingers over his, er, “man boobs”. “I know gals can do this. If a guy can do this means you are fat! 2018 I must slim down a bit. #chestnotbreast”, he wrote. Jiayou!

Zheng Ge Ping shows his clean diet

Perhaps Dennis can take a page from Ge Ping’s book on eating clean (which he is doing so to prepare for a shitless scene in February). According to the “hunkle”, his diet these few weeks consists of dishes with no sugar, no oil, less starch etc. We feel healthier just looking at his boiled broccoli and chicken.

Chen Han Wei posts #throwback to his Taiwan trip

We guess Han Wei was feeling how we all do after coming home from a nice, long holiday overseas: like we want to go back. According to his caption, the trip there this time around “felt different”, although he did not go into detail. Besides the gorgeous scenery, what caught our attention the most was his wefie with Yvonne Lim and her adorable babies AJ and Alexa.

Park Hyung Sik meets “the world’s most handsome man”

Being close friends didn’t stop Hyung Sik from gushing about BTS’s V’s good looks. “He’s really good-looking in person too. I’ll stop writing because I’m envious”, he quipped in his caption. Awww, you’re handsome too, Hyung Sik. But seriously though, isn’t this #friendshipgoals?

Jade Seah says her final goodbye to her grandmother

Jade bid a heart-breaking final farewell to her dear Granny – who passed away last Sunday – on Wednesday (Jan 10) and penned a long, touching tribute to the woman who helped raise her when her parents were busy working. “I'm inspired to live better and to attempt to be a fraction of the person she was”, she wrote.

We’re not going to lie: we definitely shed a tear or two reading through all the memories she put down.

Zhu Hou Ren’s unrecognisable makeover

We definitely needed to do a double take at this picture of the Asian Television Award-winning thespian (yes, that’s really him). Apparently, this is the look – or one of the looks – that Hou Ren will be sporting for new long-form drama Reach for the Skies (formerly known as Hope is Here). It’s amazing what a difference a bit of hair dye and an expression can make.

Michelle Chong discovers her doppelganger

“I always knew I had the makings of a Kpop star”, quipped the multi-hyphenate next to a photo collage of her and AOA’s Jimin looking uncannily similar. We must say, the resemblance is quite striking!

Myolie Wu’s husband reveals their son’s Chinese name

Little Brendan just turned three months old and his dad Philip Lee decided to share a super squeal-worthy photo of the tiny, doe-eyed tot, along with his Chinese name, Lee Yi Ting. Myolie also shared the same shot on her Weibo, revealing that her son has “started to learn how to laugh and babble in baby talk”. More pictures, please!

Little Egan visits his mummy at work

Now if this isn’t the most adorable thing we’ve seen this week. Janet Hsieh and George Young’s son Egan was brought to the site of whatever his mummy was working on one day and looked…surprised to be there? “Ah, so this is what my mum does for a living,” he seems to be thinking in that tiny head. So cute.

The ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ cast has a mini reunion

Well, some of them did, anyway. Last weekend, a few of the locally-based stars of Crazy Rich Asians had a durian feast at Selena Tan’s house. We’re sure the entire gang will be reunited again when it comes time to promote the movie closer to its intended release date in August.

Tay Ping Hui takes on the Wheelchair Challenge

Upon spotting a wheelchair (presumably a prop) on set, Ping Hui decided to get on it and embark on “the Wheelchair Challenge”, a challenge that was launched for people to understand the daily challenges that wheelchair users face by putting themselves in their shoes (or in this case, their chair). Ping Hui appeared to be quite the skilled navigator, even balancing the wheelchair on its back wheels before embarrassedly rolling away.

Ya Hui receives certificate in food hygiene course

“Now I can officially cook for you” declared the actress, seen proudly holding a certificate in “Follow Food & Beverage Safety and Hygiene Policies and Procedure” from Eduquest in her selfie. We guess this is a bit of a reel-to-real situation for her and her role in 118 as a noodle stall owner. Hey, Ya Hui, when can we sample your dishes?
