Insta-Buzz: What The Stars Were Up To This Week
This week, some stars celebrated their birthdays, while others gave us travel-envy with their holiday pics. Guess which celeb and their family went on an impromptu trip to Langkawi?
Chantelle Ng got French lessons from Sharon Au in Paris
The actress, who is in France for a Longchamp event, prepared some greetings in French to use on the luxury brand's CEO Jean Cassegrain.
Of course, she had a little help from Sharon Au, whom she met up with shortly after touching down.
Chantalle later shared an IG Reel of herself putting the practice to good use, and it looks like she did an amazing job at impressing Jean.
Chen Xi left Singapore for England
At this year's Star Awards, Xiang Yun announced that her son, Chen Xi, was going to further his studies in London. 8days.sg later caught up with the 31-year-old actor, who revealed that he was going to pursue arts management at Kings' College London.
Then, he told us he was "aiming to leave in September". And leave in September he did.
Before embarking on his new journey, he didn't forget to leave some very special gifts for his loved ones.
"I dedicated time to crafting our family crest. From that emblem, I fashioned a ring, a symbol for every family member to carry – a constant reminder of our shared life and bonds no matter where we go. In addition, I created a pair of paintings for my parents, signifying the enduring strength of teamwork within a family," wrote Chen Xi.

Last minute or not, has anyone else noticed how Nurul and her fam are always in colour-coordinated outfits?
The family of five spent their time in Langkawi doing water sports, going on a sunset cruise, and visiting the local pasar malam.
They even had a sleepover on their last night there, where they joined all the mattresses to form a giant bed.

Sheryl Ang celebrated her birthday too
Fun fact: Sin Nee and Sheryl share the same birth date (Sep 6).
Sheryl turned 25, and true to her zen-personality, wrote: "25 years of being on Earth in this body, 25 years of living and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here’s to more magic, love, growth, and happiness."

Lina Ng celebrated her wedding anniversary
"23 years of love, laughter, and endless happiness! No need for extravagance, just grateful to have you by my side," wrote Lina.
She also shared a hilarious video, which was filmed by her son, Joel, 17. In the clip, Lina could be seen sitting on her bed, with her back facing the entrance of the room where her hubby Mike stood with a bouquet of flowers. It took her a long time to turn around, and she eventually only did 'cos Joel nagged: "Ma, just turn around".

The cast of My One and Only shared a group pic
Zoe Tay, Xiang Yun, Brandon Wong, Yao Wenlong, Elvin Ng, Ya Hui, Zhai Siming, Shawn Thia, Tay Ying, and Fang Rong looked like one big happy family in this group photo, which was probably taken on a hospital set?
