What the stars did the past week

Chinese New Year is upon us soon and there’s plenty of last minute cleaning, snacking and buying to be done. This week, one of TV’s most well-loved families finally said goodbye when 118 Reunion aired its last episode after three series; there are more insights about what went down at Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s super glitzy wedding bash; and a rare update about the Song triplets. Read on for more!

Quan Yi Fong undergoes an urgent operation

Yikes! That's one nasty abscess which Yi Fong believes was a result of a insect bite gone wrong during a work shoot a few days ago. According to her, the area grew swollen and she subsequently lost muscle strength in her legs. She was admitted into hospital on Friday night and underwent an operation for it on the very same night. After a frightful night, we hear things are looking better for Yi Fong as she's now back on the mend. Speedy recovery!

Jay Chou trolls his assistant

Are we the only ones happy that Jay jumped on the Insta-wagon – and is here to stay? The multi-hyphenate takes it upon himself to troll his assistant by first posting a picture of her having a ball of a time at the clubs and writing, “I hope my assistant can remember to go home, and stop hanging around nightclubs,” and then following up with another picture of them together, with his assistant’s head on arm a la a rabid fangirl. “Can I change my assistant? Who wanna be…” he wrote. 

Keep ‘em coming in, Jay.

Woah! Tracy’s unborn baby flashed her a thumbs-up during their most recent ultrasound scan. We’re being prophetic here but we’ll take it as a positive sign that all’s well for baby and mummy. Yay!

Momo steals the limelight from his parents

Cheeky grin? Check. Super pinch-able cheeks? Check. Michelin arms and thighs? Check. 

Gah, can Alfred Sim and Tay Kewei’s little labour of love, Shen Momo, get any cuter?!

To daddy, with love

Dads (L-R: Myolie Wu’s husband and Edison Chen) who love their tiny tots so much they have the potential to grow into full-fledge daughter and son pabos.

Rub-a-dub-dub, three boys in a tub

Once upon a time, the Song triplets could all fit into a tub with plenty of room for water play. Now, their limbs are so long that their joints stick out awkwardly instead when they’re in the tub together. It’s the company that counts – never mind if it gets a little squeezy inside. Hee.

George Young can’t get enough of baby Egan

Baby see baby do. Actually, it should be a case of Papa see papa do for George and Egan instead. The first-time dad’s been entertaining us with his (and Egan’s) myriad of expressions and little make-believe stories on social media. Makes it all the more hilarious ‘cos Egan has what they call a “mature” face for a baby.

AJ and Azalea’s playdate in Taipei

Yvonne Lim and Candyce Toh’s toddlers (AJ and Azalea) had a rare meeting when the Angs were in town to visit Junyang during one of his work trips. We can’t wait to see this generation of celebrity kids grow up together just like the babies of Hong Huifang, Lin Meijiao and Xiang Yun did.

Who’s that spy?

That’s not a new gym squat stance to get a firmer tush, but the lengths (and position) a mum will go to stalk her 2-year-old son at school. You can’t blame Vivian Hsu, she just wants to make sure everything is going well for little Dalton, after all he has been in Taiwan for an extended period of time and probably might have trouble assimilating back in a school-going routine.

More outtakes from Taeyang and Min Hyo Rin’s wedding

Korea’s most heavily guarded wedding took place last weekend, and now that the dust has settled we’re starting to see more snaps and videos from fellow celebs who attended the union of Taeyang and Hyorin. From what we’ve seen so far, it looked like the guests had a ball of a time at the bash - the newly-weds included! Did you see the video of Taeyang jiving around his bride or the one of him serenading her with a ballad? So romantic!

One last hurrah for the 118 family

After three series, the 118 family finally bid adieu to their characters when the last episode of 118 Reunion aired on Monday. All good things must come to an end, but we’re sure the bonds they have with each other and the friendships forged over late nights and early mornings in the studio will stay with them forever.

Ah Boys to cardboard standees

Watcha gonna do if your flight to Kuala Lumpur gets cancelled and you have no way to attend the media conference due to take place in a couple of hours’ time? You send cardboard standees as replacement and “crack the ice” via a video conference like the team from Ah Boys to Men 4 did. Quite ingenious ah!

987FM deejay Joakim Gomez had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cosy up to and interview the main cast and director of Marvel’s newest superhero flick, Black Panther, in Seoul, Korea. Boy oh boy, we’re turning green with envy! The movie’s due to open in local cinemas on Feb 14 and is definitely worth every single penny. Long live the king!

Black Panther opens in cinemas Feb 14.

They just completed the filming of Toggle Original VIC and will be pairing up again for a 15-minute episode in another upcoming Toggle Original, Love at Cavenagh Bridge (yes, the same one that stars real-life or well-loved reel-life couples). For the record, Desmond and Carrie are both dog lovers but they’re not an item.

Let it snow, let it snow!

Newly-married Sheila Sim is currently vacationing at Niseko and gets a kick out of making snow angels in the snow, much to her husband’s chagrin. The actress also shared several clips about her attempts to conquer a tougher slope but not without suffering a few tumbles. You know what they say - if at first you don't succeed, try, try and try again!
