Tang Yan with moon cake

唐嫣: 今天你们都吃了什么口味呀?[色][馋嘴][耶]

During this past round-up, our favorite celebrities celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival (aka the Moon Festival) and got up to some other shenanigans. Kicking us off is Tang Yan and her picture-perfect moon cake. She’s currently filming the movie Bounty Hunter (赏金猎人) and will follow that up with the drama The Princess Weiyoung (锦绣未央). As always, keeping busy.

What flavor [of moon cake] did you all eat today?

Zhang Han and Gulinazha kissing in front of a bus

张翰: [rat] [heart] [monkey] @我是娜扎

If you follow any of the younger Chinese actors, you probably already know about this news: Zhang Han more or less announced that he was dating Gulinazha, his costar from the upcoming The Classic of Mountains and Seas (山海经之赤影传说). The Weibo post is just a photo of the two kissing in front of a passing bus, with a simple message saying “Rat loves Monkey” (referring to their zodiac animals) and tagging Gulinazha, but it’s a low-key and sweet way to go public.

Happy Lunar New Year! For some of us, it’s not yet February 19, but I guess that just means we’ll get an extended day of celebration. C: Treat yourself to one of Jimmy Lin‘s red envelopes featuring his son, Kimi~

夢想家林志穎: 新年快乐[大红灯笼]发红包时间到啰![发红包][发红包][发红包]

Happy New Year. It’s time to pass out the red envelopes!

Most of our favorite celebrities are enjoying the holiday at home, which means not as many Weibo updates regarding the New Year. But here’s what some of them have been up to the past three weeks…

Dad! Where did Cindy go?

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it!

 Going head-to-head with the upcoming film “Where are we going? Dad II” will be another comedy from the dads of the first season – Emperor’s Vacation 爸爸的假期. The film is directed by Wang Yuelun, and notably misses Cindy, but has a guest star from Tian Liang. Wang Yuelun isn’t the best director, so we’ll see how it goes. If anything, the kids will be cute, even if it is scripted.

Hope everyone had a good Halloween last week! Some celebrities got in on the fun as well, though I haven’t seen any truly outlandish costumes yet. Here’s three of the cutest ones I saw — do you have any of your own to share?

Jimmy Lin with wife Kelly Chen at son Kimi Lin‘s school’s Halloween party. They’re dressed as a SWAT team. Excuse me while I express shock over the fact that they’re allowed to bring to fake weapons into a school. My workplace didn’t even allow lightsabers!

Cindy decorating Yuan Hong's hair

袁弘: 和新来的发型师森碟女士交流了一下学辫小辫儿技术哪家好的问题,她表示,自己只是带着彩虹蛋糕来探二姨妈@张歆艺 的班儿,不想讨论太严肃的话题,然后……我趁偷吻未遂……[泪]

Yuan Hong, who’s currently filming Princess Jieyou (解忧公主), had a surprise visit from Cindy last week. Cindy was actually there to see his costar Zhang Xinyi but ended up playing with his hair instead. :P

I talked with Ms. Cindy, the new hair stylist, about which stylist has the best braiding techniques. She said that she only came to visit her second aunt @Zhang Xinyi and bring her a rainbow cake, and she didn’t want to discuss too serious topics, and then… I was unsuccessful in my attempt at a stolen kiss.

A lot more cute pictures at Yuan Hong’s Weibo, and for those who want to see more of Cindy with her dad, she and Tian Liang recently did an adorable outdoors photoshoot.

夢想家林志穎: 那天给kimi剪完“男生头”,他高兴地摆各种POSE。我说,哇!你现在像爸比一样头发了!kimi说,不是嘢,我是李敏镐!囧……求评鉴:新发型到底像谁?#4700万粉丝礼物#

Remember last week, when Jimmy Lin tried giving Kimi Lin a haircut and thought he’d totally ruined his son’s new hairstyle? Well, turns out things didn’t end so badly after all…

That day I gave Kimi a “boy haircut,” he happily did various poses.
I said, Wow! Now your hair is like Daddy’s!
Kimi said, No, I am Lee Min-ho!
Embarrassed… I ask for an evaluation: Whose hairstyle does his new hairstyle resemble? #gift for reaching 47 million followers#

turbosun: 爸爸妈妈去早教给等等报名,手续都办妥,老师问小孩的名字要做登记,我回答道:等等。老师说:喔。然后过了很久老师又问道:请问小孩叫什么?我们又答:等等……老师说:噢…………这小孩的名字麻烦?我们答道:就叫等等呀。老师顿时一脸黑线

With great power comes great responsibility… especially when you’re deciding on your kid’s name. Sun Li shared a funny story about when she and husband Deng Chao registered their son for school. Keep in mind that “dengdeng” means “wait” or “hold on.”

Dad and Mom went to the early class to register Dengdeng. The procedures were all completed, and the teacher asked what the child’s name was in order to register it. I replied, Dengdeng. The teacher said, Okay. After a long while, the teacher asked again, May I ask what the child is called? We answered again: Dengdeng… Teacher: Oh… is this child’s name very troublesome? We replied: He’s called Dengdeng. The teacher’s face immediately got marked by black lines.

Yes, their kid’s name is Deng Dengdeng. Makes you wonder what Sun Li, who recently showed off her baby bump in a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, is going to name her second child.

And according to idarklight, gymnasts Yang Wei and Yang Yun named their son Yang Yangyang (and will be appearing on Happy Camp this Friday!). It looks like this is more of a nickname, though, thank goodness.

Before we step into this week’s shenanigans, please consider holding a moment of silence for the victims of the March 1st Kunming attack, which left 29 civilians dead and 143 others injured.

I haven’t been able to find much information about providing aid, short of flying to Kunming and volunteering at hospitals there, which are still treating victims. For those of us who can’t do anything tangible for the situation, let’s follow Yuan Hong‘s advice:

Friends in Kunming, how are you doing? Those thugs are still at large, a reminder to everyone to be alert. May the wounded be safe and the decease rest in peace. As for us, try your best to remain rational and calm. Any negative or hostile moods from us are exactly what they, the ones who caused this massacre, wanted to achieve. The scars of hate carved by the devil brandishing a knife — only love can heal.

Fortunately, there is lots of love for this week’s round-up, starting with writer-racecar driver-director Han Han and his daughter.

Music Monday: February 3, 2014

Here to make Monday a little easier =)

Here to make Monday a little easier =)

Thank goodness for snow day or I might not be able to do Music Monday again. I do apologize for skipping two (?) weeks of Music Monday. But I’m going to make it up to you guys with some great music in this week’s Music Monday =)

This week Su Xing makes a comeback with a new single, Jimmy Lin sings to his son Kimi, Ding Dang reminding you BBJQ will air sometime this year, and many more.

Let’s start with David Cui 崔龙阳, a Beijing-based grass root musician studying at the University of International Relations (yea…), released his first album 《Hello!》. The music video below is for the English single Mirror, first released in 2012.
