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

This week, Rui En finally joined Instagram and proceeded to dish out hilarious burns to her colleagues. One star also shared his unusual way of celebrating his birthday, while another showed her support for JJ Lin, who's been in the headlines for not the best reasons.

1 of 11 Lawrence Wong treated himself to instant noodles on his birthday

Lawrence decided to freak-care about having a v-shaped face after a long day of work and cooked a comforting bowl of instant noodles as a birthday present to himself.

Instant noodles just reminds me of my late mum or even my dad whom I'm always away from but will always wake up from their sleep and cook me a bowl when I come home late, he explained.

2 of 11 Kimberly Chia turned 26 and had this sweet message to share

I used to be so insecure and scared of everything, admitted Kim. But at this age, I feel more confident, unfazed, and ready to take on whatever comes my way. I guess that’s the beauty of growing up!

Happy birthday, Kim!

Rui En is finally on IG and she's taking to it like a fish to water.

When Desmond Tan expressed his excitement about seeing more updates from her, the actress said, u tell me first when we can finally have our catchup (sic) .

[My Facebook] account was hacked in the morning, Fann wrote on Instagram on August 4. But FB restored my original admins by noon [so we're] all good now.

She also posted a screenshot of the netizen who compromised her account: a business account that goes by the name of Aathavan Aathav. Whoever you are, please don't try that again.

5 of 11 Michelle Wong got her Certificate in Basic Archery

Never expected trying out archery for a scene would result in me developing a new hobby — not that I need any more, gushed Michelle. I still remember shooting an arrow on set and somehow hitting a 10 — that release and rush of joy was exhilarating. I think I got addicted.

6 of 11 Kate Pang bade Singapore goodbye again...

A week after ending her three-weeks of SHN in Singapore, Kate packed her bags and is back in Taiwan for another three weeks of quarantine. While one and a half months in isolation sounds extremely daunting, Kate took heart that her future trips back here may not require her to be quarantined anymore.

    10 of 11 Wang Lei dressed up as a Chinese zombie to sell incense papers

    The Seventh Lunar Month only started today, but getai singer-turned-live-stream-star Wang Lei is already hawking Hungry Ghost Festival-related items on Facebook. He also dressed up very appropriately for one of his live streams, much to the delight, or should we say, horror of his viewers.

  • 11 of 11 Zhang Zhenhuan met up with Paige Chua

    Zhenhuan has been back in Singapore for some time, but he remains very secretive about what he's up to here.

    His recent meetup with Paige, plus the fact that he hashtagged upcoming long-form drama The Heartland Hero on his post, has us wondering if he's making his acting comeback soon.
