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~

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…

Happy 2015! A quick round-up this week — I expect that the next Weibo Wednesday will be several weeks from now, so enjoy your fill while you can.

Gao Yuanyuan, as posted by Mark Chao
HERO趙又廷: 別差評了 this is my wife

Mark Chao used the last few hours of 2014 to post a photo of his wife, Gao Yuanyuan. The couple officially got married at the end of November. Also of note is that Mark’s post was #1314 on his Weibo, which is significant because “1314” sounds like “all my life” in Mandarin.

Don’t criticize her. This is my wife.

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!

Chen Xuedong on Grade One reality show
陈学冬: 一口塑料普通话的我也是醉了[拜拜]一年级好看吗?
Celebrities plus cute kids is always a plus, right? Hunan TV recently began broadcasting a new reality show called Grade One (一年级), in which actor Chen Xuedong and actress Song Jia are put in charge of a new first-grade class. Watch the show on Hunan TV’s YouTube account.

Me with my mouth full of plastic Mandarin*, I’m also intoxicated. Is Grade One fun to watch?

* “Plastic Mandarin” is a way of referring to Mandarin that is heavily influenced by the Hunan dialects.

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.

I hope none of you have been holding your breath for a Weibo Wednesday update, because that means you’ve been waiting for two. whole. months. Oops. Remember when we used to update this every week? Anyway, let’s go full speed ahead to this time’s round-up, which is on the shorter side, but hey, short and sweet, right?

Ni Ni cosplaying as Sailor Moon
倪妮V: 向头像致敬[haha]谢谢我"脑残"团队的礼物[泪]水手妮谢谢大家的生日祝福[哈哈]

Any Sailor Moon fans here? Ni Ni celebrated her 26th birthday on August 8 (yeah, last month) by cosplaying as Sailor Ni. She took several gorgeous shots, but of course I had to pick the classic “In the name of the moon, I will punish you” pose.

Pay respect to my portrait. Thank you to my “brain-dead” team for their present. Sailor Ni thanks everyone for their birthday blessings.

To be honest, not much has been happening on the Weibo front since our last round-up (that, or I haven’t had the time to pay enough attention), but have some cuteness to make up for the lack of real news.

Zhou Xun with boyfriend Archie Kao and panda
i周迅: [panda emoticon]

Zhou Xun with her Chinese-American boyfriend Archie Kao is quite adorable already, but give me Zhou Xun, Archie, and a panda, and that’s even better! I’m going to have to throw in an extra picture here, because she is really just too cute.
