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

Kids take centre stage in this week’s celeb social media roundup (really, there’s a lot more of them than usual, but we’re not complaining). There were also a couple of heart-breaking goodbyes, some early Halloween fun, co-star reunions, and the rubbing of shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Click on for more!

Xiaxue hung out with Hannah Quinlivan

Xiaxue may not have been invited to the YSL Beauty event where Mrs. Jay Chou made an appearance at on Friday night, but she got to do something even better: thanks to a friend of hers, she got to enjoy “a chill dinner” and some shopping at Don Don Donki with Hannah yesterday.

“I’m fangirling the whole time coz she’s like sooooo perfect and pretty (…) and so nice and down to earth too (…) so happy to get to know her better (sic),” the blogger gushed on Instagram. Wonder what they talked about!

G-Dragon was discharged from the military

The BIGBANG leader completed his mandatory military service yesterday and was welcomed back by 3,000 fans and of course, his family, who held a cosy little celebration at home for him as shared by his older sister, Dami Kwon.

T.O.P also shared a screenshot of a cute text message exchange the bandmates had, in which he congratulated G-Dragon on his discharge. Welcome back, GD!

Belinda Lee lost another pet

Just over a month after the actress laid her beloved dog Man Man to rest, she had to say goodbye to another one of her precious fur-kids, Ah Bui, who was a surprise gift from Julie Tan and Dawn Yeoh. “Gone too soon, too sudden (...) Thank you for bringing sooo (sic) much joy and laughter into my life,” she wrote alongside a few pictures of its “simple but beautiful send-off”.

Our deepest condolences to Belinda.

Taufik Batisah welcomed Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim to his restaurant

Chix Hot Chicken can now count Dr. Yaacob Ibrahim as one of its most famous customers. The former minister dropped by earlier this week and spent some time sharing advice on how the business can go even further as an SME (small and medium-sized enterprise).

Okay, but the real question on our minds is: did he have a go at their super-spicy ghost pepper wings (and how did he react)?

TWICE’s Dahyun won Halloween with her costume

The girl group held a fan meeting to celebrate their fourth anniversary last weekend and dressed up in a variety of fun costumes for Halloween. While we loved all their efforts, our favourite has definitely got to be Dahyun’s rendition of the Genie from Aladdin, complete with puffy fake muscles. We wonder how long it took for her to wash all that blue face paint off.

Hong Ling and Nick Teo clowned around for Halloween

The lovebirds are currently on vacation in South Korea and decided to join in the early Halloween fun by getting their faces painted on the streets at the Itaewon district. Is anyone surprised that the Joker and Harley Quinn look is in right now?

Luna bid an emotional goodbye to Sulli

On Friday, the f(x) member shared an old photograph of the group and dedicated a heart-warming message to her late former bandmate, who was found dead on October 14. In her post, she shared that the two laughed, cried, and fought a lot, and apologised for not loving and taking care of Sulli more. “You were such a lovely child and mature younger sister. I love you, Sulli, I love you so much.” Sobs.

Edison Chen’s daughter flaunted her best beach babe pose

With a supermodel mum and a [former] bad boy dad, it’s not surprising that little Alaia has both grace and swag in her genes. Just check out her expert posture at the beach: arched back, one foot in front of the other… and she was probably just observing her feet in the sand. She’ll be lighting up magazine covers and runways in no time.

Myolie Wu’s son was too cute for words (as usual)

We know this phrase is overused but… get yourself someone who looks at you the way little Brendan looks at his papa, especially with that delicious-looking bowl of ice cream right there in front of him.

Christine Fan and Blackie Chen’s sons fell in love with Singapore

Christine’s Lion City gig isn’t until next month, but it looks like she decided to make an early trip here with her brood for some fun - and boy, River and Ryan sure look like they had a whale of a time! The family of four was also joined by Vivian Hsu and visited Universal Studios Singapore.

“I think Singapore is the most child-friendly city in the world!” gushed Blackie on Instagram. “When I asked [my sons] if they were having fun, they replied, ‘We’ve fallen in love with Singapore!’” Come back anytime!

Feli turned 35 on Thursday and enjoyed at least two celebrations, one with her friends and another with her Old is Gold co-stars (and of course, boyfriend Jeffrey Xu was around for both).

Janet Hsieh had an “unforgettable night” with cinema royalty...

“Superstar Will Smith, Visionary Director Ang Lee, and Producer Extraordinaire Jerry Bruckheimer” (as Janet enthusiastically put in her caption) were in Taipei to promote their latest film Gemini Man, and the TV personality got to host the premiere and, of course, take some awesome wefies on stage with the movie icons. Talk about having lots of fun on the job!

… and showed off her son’s acting skills

We must say, that is the most convincing eye-roll we’ve ever seen on a two-year-old. Even his mama was impressed. “Where did you learn how to do that!? Egan is by far the best actor in this household,” she wrote. We wonder if she would’ve shown this clip to Ang Lee if she had the chance.

Joanne Peh enjoyed a family vacation in Taiwan…

The Last Madame actress jetted off with her two kids for a holiday in Taiwan last week. On Wednesday, she shared about a frightening experience that happened at the entrance of the Swallow Grotto trail, saying that a rock had fallen just 1.5 m away from where her daughter was standing. Yikes. We’re so glad everyone is okay!

The rest of the trip appears to have gone smoothly, filled with loads of eating (of course). Joanne also shared an adorable photo of her son snapping a photo of her, which she said he insisted (is that a toy camera, though?).

… where she was reunited with Jeff Chou

It looks like Joanne managed to find some time away from the kids to hang with her grown-up friends, her Last Madame co-star Jeff, Patricia Mok, and stylist Martin Wong. After dinner, they even took huge posters of the Toggle Originals series out on the street for some shameless self-promotion. Wonder if they drew any attention…

Jay Chou’s kids enjoyed a special private show

Ah, the perks of having a famous parent. In the midst of preparing for his Shanghai concert earlier this week, the Mandopop king and his crew took some time out to put on an exclusive private performance for his daughter Hathaway and son Romeo, who watched from the middle aisle. We wish we could see a shot of their faces, which were undoubtedly full of pride and wonder.

The veteran actress turns 58 today (happy birthday, Xiang Yun!) and celebrated in style with dinner and a movie at Golden Village’s posh Gold Class cinema with husband Edmund Chen and kids Chen Yixi and Chen Yixin.

Jay Park felt the love in Spain

And by “love” we mean a shower of bras, which we reckon were tossed on stage during his concert in Madrid. We’re cackling at the comments about them hoping the girls got their bras back because those things are so darned expensive.

Lawrence Wong reunited with Qin Lan in France

The Story of Yanxi Palace co-stars were invited to the historic Palace of Versailles for a Remy Martin event, where they enjoyed a personalised tour by “professional role-playing actors from London”, “interactive group games, cognac tasting and access to areas of the garden not open to [the] public”. No wonder Lawrence gushed that this will be a cherished memory for a long time.

Liv Lo posted - and deleted - a photo with the Terminator

Hmmm, we’re wondering why Liv’s picture with Terminator: Dark Fate stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, which was taken during the film’s junket in Seoul, got… terminated (at least on Instagram - it’s still up on her Facebook page). In any case, lucky her!

Rui En hung out with fans from overseas

An Old is Gold roadshow was held last weekend, with fans from Malaysia and Indonesia specially making their way to Singapore to support Rui En. To express her gratitude, the actress shared a short but sweet message via her fanclub RBKD, which read, “To all the peeps who came from outside sg (sic), it means alot (sic) to me! [I’m thankful].” So sweet!

Rainie Yang was “a staff member” at Li Ronghao’s concert

We’re tickled that even the wife of the evening’s main performer needed to wear an all access pass to get around (unless she just put it on for the photo). “[I’m] a staff member at the Taipei stop,” she wrote in her caption. Ronghao should return the favour at her Singapore concert next month. Just sayin’.

Tay Ping Hui showed off his cute side with Jesseca Liu and Michelle Chia

Gotta love a man who ain’t afraid to show off his cutesy side, complete with really convincing puppy dog eyes and a coy stuck-out tongue. “I know what you gonna say but I had to match up to this 2 cuties! Doesn’t it remind you of those neoprint thingy we used to have? (sic)” We guess we now know what his go-to pose was.

It looks like pulling teeth wasn’t as difficult as, well, pulling teeth for the actor’s little girl, Bethany, who managed to yank out two of her own baby teeth in three days. Someone’s got nerves of steel.

Xu Bin’s son indulged in a bit of retail therapy

Little Ethan may only be a little over a year old, but it looks like he already knows how to just go for what he wants, at least when it comes to toys. Wonder if his papa agreed to buy that for him in the end?

Seraph Sun marked her second wedding anniversary

It’s been two years since the former Mediacorp actress said “I do” to her Japanese husband, and she penned a thoughtful tribute to him alongside photos of them enjoying a little jalan jalan at Henderson Waves.

“It is sometimes hard to keep the filter on, especially the longer you get to know a person. But life without filter can be so much more thrilling,” she wrote. “And you made it all possible. Two years of our new life together, from Japan to Singapore, we explored, experienced, played, learned, struggled, and sometimes fought, but never stopped loving. Thanks for loving me for me and growing with me. (sic)”

Natalie Tong adopted a new kitten

The actress is now a mum to three felines as she recently welcomed a tiny new addition to her family, a kitten. At an event last weekend, she shared that her youngest fur-kid isn’t even two months old yet, and showed just how important her cats are in her life by declaring that her future romantic partners must get their approval. We honestly don’t know if that’s more nerve-wracking than meeting the parents.

Phoebe Sin found the courage to drive her daughter around

It looks like Mrs. Ruco Chan wasn’t confident enough in her driving skills to take to the road with her adorable baby girl Quinta in the vehicle until just a few days ago (although she admitted that her husband was by her side as well). Don’t worry, Phoebe, you’ll be chauffeuring her to and from school before you know it.
