Insta-buzz: What the stars were up to this week

In this week’s celebrity social media roundup, we have: local and Hollywood stars colliding overseas, a top K-pop star opening a new social media account amidst agency woes, an actor landing himself in hot soup (quite literally) at the food court, and more.

Andie Chen suffers nasty burns

Ouch. According to the actor’s caption, this painful-looking disaster was the result of “a wet tray and a bowl of really hot soup”, which led him to urge food court staff to always make sure their trays are dry before using them.

Andie also shared a few videos of him in absolute agony as his wife tried to to help him change his wound dressing. Thankfully, little Avery was there to give her papa a kiss to make thing a bit better for him.

Be careful, everybody, and we wish Andie a speedy recovery.

Rebecca Lim meets Nicole Kidman in Sicily

Between a week of filming The Good Fight in Cambodia and flying back to Singapore for the Star Awards Top 40 press conference, busy Rebecca jetted off to Sicily to participate in a few activities as the ambassador for wellness brand Swisse.

The trip included visiting a blood orange orchard and, perhaps the most exciting of all, hanging out with her fellow actress and Swisse ambassador, Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman.

“It was pretty surreal meeting her and sharing the same set as her as we were shooting the same campaign,” Rebecca shared in a statement through her manager. “She has been my role model not only in terms of acting, but also in her leadership in empowering the people around her and her fashion sense. She was very approachable and shared about some of her beauty secrets and wanted to find out more about the entertainment industry in Singapore. She also mentioned how much she loves Singapore [because] she has family here too.”

Too. Cool.

More Hollywood star encounters (feat. the Muttons)

Class 95 DJs Justing Ang and Vernon A may have dubbed this "absolutely the worst selfie [they've] ever taken" because their "hands were just not long enough" (we know that feeling), but hey, with Hollywood stars Ben Affleck (a.k.a. Batman), Garrett Hedlund, and Charlie Hunnam (who were in town to promote their new film Triple Frontier) in the shot, it's still pretty awesome.

Zed Lee is looking more and more like his dad

We know, we know - it shouldn’t be surprising or newsworthy for a father-and-son pair to look alike, but this collage (plus Christopher Lee’s caption “We r from same factory (sic)”) was still too adorable to not share.

It’s certainly not everyday you get to see huge billboards of yourself being set up, let alone in a foreign country! Then again, not all of us are city ambassadors like Jeanette, who was appointed as the official ambassador for the city of Takasaki, Japan last year.

Constance Song’s daughter is growing up fast

Since she gave birth to a little girl in 2017, the actress has been keeping her daughter’s name and face a secret on social media. However, earlier this week, we got what is our clearest glimpse of the child yet, although most of her face is covered by sunglasses and a sticker. Constance was thanking the teacher of her daughter’s early childhood education programme with the post.
