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

Here are some of our favourite snaps from the past week.

This week, some of our stars celebrated birthdays, while others jetted overseas for events, photoshoots, solo trips, and to catch up with family.

Rebecca Lim met up with former Mediacorp actor Nat Ho in Seoul

If you haven't heard (or read!), the Mediacorp actress attended the Gucci Cruise Show in Seoul midway through her honeymoon in England. Although it was only a short stop to attend the luxury brand's event, it seems Becks found time to catch up with her pal, actor Nat ho, who has been based in Seoul since last year.

They even took some adorable photo booth pics to commemorate the reunion.

The actor, who was holidaying in Japan earlier this month, took to Instagram to share some of the sights he captured during his time there. Besides filming the breathtaking views at Oita prefecture, Chen Xi also showcased his artistic talents through his sketches of temples and shrines. Seriously, how good does his drawing look?

Qi Yuwu and Joanne Peh took a trip back to the actor's hometown of Guangzhou

"It's been three years. Guangzhou, my wife and I are coming back," wrote the actor in his caption.

The good-looking couple took pictures of themselves at their boarding gate at Changi Airport, and again when they arrived at Guangzhou's Baiyun International Airport. We can't wait to see what they get up to during this trip.

Nick Teo set off on his first solo trip

And of course his fiancée Hong Ling sent him off at the airport. In fact, she played a huge part in convincing him to go on this backpacking trip to Vietnam.

He wrote: "Off to a Solo trip! Not easy to muster up the courage to do so. I always wanted to go for a solo backpacking trip but kept postponing till now. This is the first time I am feeling very unsure of an overseas trip."

According to Nick, these were the "exact words" Hong Ling said to give him the extra push he needed to embark on the adventure: "If you still don't do it now, you want to wait till you are 70 or 80, when you hardly can walk and climb then you go meh?"

Sunny Side Up star Sharda Maxine Harrison got engaged

The actress-host took to IG to share about her engagement to her non-celeb beau.

The couple were in Perth last month and she recounted how they overcame challenges as a team to eventually reach the peak of the mountain they were climbing.

"It was the mountain, its spirit and us, climbing her, meekly and then a little more assuredly, step by step, sometimes hand in hand, sometimes one in front of the other. Sometimes he carried the bag, sometimes I carried the bag. We shared weight, distance, time and space. That when we reached the top and he got down on one knee, it felt as if the mountain had said yes for us. The mountain had already showed us the way, of how to live together and with each other. Effortlessly, it was for me to acknowledge the being in front of me and say yes to travelling together in this lifetime as partners. As husband and wife," she wrote.
