What did our local stars get up to this CNY?
Another year, another Chinese New Year we can only have five visitors per day. Nevertheless, our stars still found their own ways to inject a dose of festive cheer into their CNY celebrations earlier this week.
JJ Lin and his father played badminton together
The second day of CNY falls on a very special day indeed, which JJ noted in his caption: "On the second day of the year, 2022, Feb 2, the day with the most '2', is today!".
And so, how did the singer choose to commemorate the day? With some exercise of course.
Wonder who was the winner of the badminton match between JJ and his dad.
