Andy Lau lights up Singapore Indoor Stadium for four nights in a row

After 11 years, Andy finally returns to Singapore to stage a solo concert, this time, even celebrating his birthday with Singaporean fans during his September 27.

We have to say, we’re particularly envious of Jeanette Aw, who managed to score first row seats to watch her “eternal idol” live. Oh, and is that JJ Lin we spot in the stands? As it turns out, JJ, who happened to be in town for an OSIM launch event was one of the many fans who serenaded Andy with a birthday song on Friday (September 27). Take a gander at those vocal chops!

Rebecca celebrates her 32nd birthday with cakes aplenty

Though she might have spent her actual birthday away from Singapore, the actress’s fanclub still surprised her with an early cake delivery. During her time in Paris, Rebecca also met up with Sharon Au, who’s based in the city now, for dinner, and of course, more cake!

SHINee’s Taemin celebrates bandmate Key’s birthday in style

What do you do when you want to congratulate your bandmate on his birthday when he’s currently serving in the military? For SHINee’s Taemin, a simple text message, or even making plans for dinner during said bandmate's next break just wasn’t enough.

Instead, the cheeky 26-year-old snuck into Key’s apartment with a cake and some friends on Key’s 28th birthday, taking pictures aplenty to send to his unsuspecting bandmate.

The cherry on top of the cake? A video Taemin later uploaded of himself going through Key’s closet, and picking out a jacket to bring home. And no, this wasn’t planned in advance, as can be seen from Key’s visible confusion in the comments of Taemin’s post.

Kate Pang celebrates Aden’s latest milestone

Testament to what a little perseverance, and a whole lot of courage can do, is Kate’s story of how Aden conquered his fear of a rock climbing wall that he was previously too afraid to try. A year ago, he was so daunted by the wall that he refused to even think about trying to climb, it, but a year later, it’s a whole new story for the 5-year-old. Kudos to him!

Jay Chou, Hannah Quinlivan’s son is growing up to be a budding photographer

Are we looking at the next great photographer? Even though he’s just 2 years old, little Romeo’s interest in the art of photography has been well and truly piqued. We can’t help but to squeal at the thought of the baby boy toddling his way around the museum with his camera held firmly in his little hands.

Angelababy misses her baby boy in Paris

“Can’t wait to see my little boy,” Angelababy writes in her caption from Paris, where she was a regular on the fashion columns as Paris Fashion Week kicked into gear. We wonder if her uncharacteristic mention of her baby boy, nicknamed Little Sponge, on her Instagram is a response to the many reports speculating that she has since called it quits with her husband, Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming.

The Singapore-based host launched Teabrary, a tea studio that she’s been working on for the past one-and-a-half years earlier this week, which aims to serve healthy bubble tea to Singaporeans. Though Teabrary might only have one outlet here in Singapore, the tea studio is a regional affair, with outlets in Taiwan, Cambodia and Anhui. The next time you’re craving a bubble tea fix, you know where to go!

Chinese actress Vicki Zhao’s very own Château Monlot range of red wine is now available in Singapore. So, whenever you feel like sipping some celebrity-owned wine, you know where to get a quick dose of star power right here in Singapore. Cheers!

As they always say, great minds think alike, don’t they? Jesseca and Ping Hui accidentally co-ordinated outfits are cute, but we’d say that their “embarrassed poses” are even cuter.
