Insta-Buzz: What The Stars Were Up To This Week
Chen Xi became the third wheel on a family trip
The Chen family went on a family holiday to New Zealand and Chen Xi was sandwiched between two couples — his parents Edmund Chen and Xiang Yun and his sister Yixin and her boyfriend Gavin Teo.
We're glad he found the humour in it though. He shared a cheeky IG story of interlocked hands, only for it to zoom out and reveal that it was him holding... his other hand.
Jokes aside, they look to be having a really good time Down Under.

Fang Rong rocked her chic new haircut
The actress chopped off her long locks for her an upcoming drama role. She shared that while she was excited to be sporting a completely new look, she was also nervous to be deviating from what she was conditioned to think "a girl should look like".
She ultimately overcame her nerves and found confidence: "I am ready to dismantle the delusion that we have to fit in/stay within preconceived “should” boxes, or that my body needs to conform in a certain way before I can feel good about myself. Confidence radiates effortlessly when you trust in your power, and when you see yourself for all your strengths AND flaws, and own 100% of it. Work WITH it."

Jeremy Chan and Jesseca Liu took a trip back to Langkawi
"We've been back to Jesseca's hometown countless times, but this is our first time island hopping on a jet ski. Besides being on this holiday with the crew and directors for work, it feels great to be able to leave our other work behind and enjoy ourselves wholeheartedly," wrote Jeremy.
Lin Peifen recounted this adorable conversation she had with her son
The jock's seven-year-old son Luke, thought of a super cute idea to express his love for his mum. She wrote:
"Luke: Mama, I want to marry you.
Me: (surprised, amused and heart melts, but tries to be nonchalant) You can’t marry me.
Luke: Why not?
Me: (thinking hard) Because we are already family. You marry someone you love a lot and want to be family with. Marriage unites two unrelated people as family.
Luke: Oh. Then can I marry didi?
Me: … (proceeds to repeat myself)."
