What the stars ate this week

It was feasting galore this week thanks to Christmas and winter solstice. Fann Wong and Zed Zed made their own glutinous rice balls, while Qi Yuwu brought Joanne Peh out to enjoy some. Meanwhile, Carrie Wong got her celeb pals to help her with prawn-shelling, Michelle Chong got to showcase her culinary prowess, and James Seah had the most amazing beef noodles in Bangkok. Read on for more!

Michelle Chong and Sharon Au

What she ate: Atas hotpot

Yummy factor: Although Michelle had an intimate Christmas dinner with BFF Sharon Au in the comfort of her own home, she certainly spared no expense in making sure they feasted on the best -- think live blue shrimps, Boston lobsters and Hokkaido scallops, whole abalones and more. As if that's not enough, she made banana flambé with butterscotch for dessert.

What she ate: Burger and fries

Yummy factor: Shu An was probably one of the first to try Five Guys in Singapore, and her shiok expression seems to say it all -- the burger and fries combo must have tasted heavenly for a hungry gal like her.

What they ate: Christmas dinner

Yummy factor: Joanne and Yuwu invited their celeb pals over for dinner and boy did their roast turkey and ham roll platter look most festive and appetising. Also, it appears that Joanne, Jeffrey Xu, Felicia Chin, and Cynthia Koh obligingly helped Carrie Wong with prawn-shelling because she didn't want to have anything to do with the tedious task!

James Seah

What he ate: Beef noodles

Yummy factor: Thanks to recommendations by friends, James was introduced to Roddeeded’s beef noodles in Bangkok. Safe to say, he absolutely loved the ribeye and short rib beef noodles that he got to nom on. Pro tip from James and his bae Nicole Chang Min: Be sure to ask for more noodles to go with the flavourful broth and generous meat portions if you’ve got a big appetite!

What they ate: Homemade tang yuan

Yummy factor: The mother-son duo made their own tang yuan from pink and white glutinous rice flour dough to celebrate the winter solstice (Dec 22), and enjoyed the traditional sweet treat with boiled peanut soup. We’re sure Zed Zed wished he could have shared his own creations with Christopher Lee, who was away for work!

What she ate: Peranakan dishes

Yummy factor: Forget the usual Christmas must-haves... Apple had her fill of Nyonya signatures at Taman Perling in Johor Bahru, and the spread featuring curries, ngoh hiang, beef rendang, chendol and more looks absolutely satisfying to say the least.

What they ate: Tang yuan

Yummy factor: Not only did Yuwu rush home from Kuala Lumpur to celebrate the winter solstice with wifey Joanne Peh, he also saved her from a mountain of housework and brought her out to savour simple but heartwarming bowls of tang yuan with red bean soup instead. Someone hand Yuwu the “Best Husband of the Year” award already!

Yummy factor: Happy birthday, AJ! Yvonne’s adorable son turns five today (Dec 27) and he’s been celebrating all week long thanks to his hardworking mama, who has been arranging playdates and parties both in Singapore and Taiwan for him. We spotted these Ironman-themed macarons (with a hint of Christmas) at one of his celebrations and absolutely loved them!

Yummy factor: It's Elvin’s birthday week, aka his license to eat as much cake as he likes. And we bet his scrumptious tortellini went perfectly well with his glass of white wine.

What they ate: A4 Wagyu steak

Yummy factor: Although Hong Ling is wishing for a white Christmas next year, there’s no denying that her Christmas date with Nick was probably just as enjoyable, if not more! Psst... We’re absolutely loving the tender A4 wagyu steak they had from Chug Chug. And is that their signature fried garlic pork we spy?

What they ate: Hainanese curry rice

Yummy factor: Now that Sharon is back in Singapore, the BFFs have been meeting up a lot more, and that includes lunch dates over a sinful yet oh-so-satisfying Hainanese curry rice spread -- including a whole fish and lots of fried dishes -- that they dapao-ed home.
