Check out what some of the stars have been up to as we enter the third week of 2018.

Joanna Dong’s special dedication to her mentor

On Jay Chou’s 39th birthday on Thursday, fans were treated to a one-of-a-kind gift from the musician himself – a brand new single called ‘Waiting For You,’ about a teenage boy pining after his crush. We were also treated to this hilarious and cute image of Joanna pretending to kiss her Sing! China mentor with the help of a background poster and camera angles. Macam fan girl, this one.

Out of all the birthday wishes and dedications he received on his hatch day, we’re sure nothing beats the rainbow cake skillfully and lovingly baked by his wife, Hannah Quinlivan. We’re turning to mush reading Hannah’s birthday dedication to her soulmate, teacher, hubby and best friend.

Zoe Tay ends her Seoul-journ

After embracing sub-zero temperatures during her birthday week in Seoul, Korea, Zoe returned home to the tropics and expressed her longing for her three sons via hashtags on her Instagram post. The Queen also lamented about how she was unable to parade about in her trendy togs because of Seoul’s unforgiving cold weather which saw her being wrapped in a black down jacket 99.99% of the time. Maybe she should have stayed in Singapore instead? Just joking.

And launches her first EP too

Before she dives into her next acting project, Eleanor launched her first EP a couple of days ago. At the press conference, the lanky lass revealed that she’s got plenty on her to-do wish list for 2018: a big movie project, an album, a photo book and an art exhibition. From the looks of it, we’re pretty sure Eleanor will have no problem checking every item off the list.

Gulp. We’re hoping the girls didn’t get as bad a tan as Desmond did with his thongs – we mean, his slippers.

Janet Hsieh makes fun of her son

In this week’s funniest Instagram posts, Janet’s visual explanation for little Egan’s scrunched up face in a group picture with his grandmother had us laughing-out-loud. Guess grandma’s using a little too much strength to grab-hold him. Only his mum is, uh, ballsy, enough to poke fun at her son. Hee.
