All the photos that made us hungry this week

Happy Chinese New Year! The CNY festivities saw the celebs indulging in all things delicious this week – Carrie Wong and Denise Camillia Tan had a simple reunion dinner together, Vivian Lai had a yusheng-tossing good time with celeb pals like Fann Wong, Christopher Lee and Li Nanxing, while Shane Pow couldn’t stop snacking on love letters, much to the chagrin of girlfriend Kimberly Wang. Meanwhile, Jeanette Aw and Eric Khoo enjoyed Japanese sweets in Tokyo, and Zed Zed’s guilty pleasure was a lot simpler though -- he had good ol’ fried rice with egg.

Lee Teng

What he ate: The most adorable pancake snack

Yummy factor: Lee Teng had his fill of street snacks whilst in Taiwan for the Lunar New Year, and this Frenchie-shaped custard pancake was polished off in a snap. Wonder if he felt guilty biting into his doggo Bali.

Vivian Lai

What she ate: Yusheng and hotpot with celeb pals including Fann Wong, Christopher Lee, Mark Lee and Li Nanxing

Yummy factor: Yu sheng is a messy affair so it's genius of them to take their lo hei outdoors. Just make sure the doggos don't pick up any of the scraps.

Yummy factor: Happy belated birthday, Tanya! She had her “traditional Parisian birthday” celebration at the glitzy Ritz Paris with decadent vanilla chocolate marble cake and champagne -- the perfect way to toast to a year well-lived, we say.

What she ate: Tang yuan (glutinous rice dumplings)

Yummy factor: What’s sweeter than tang yuan? Tang yuan from Felicia Chin. Jayley was so touched that Felicia, who visited her earlier in the day, returned with her favourite dessert. Anything to cheer a friend up right?

What he ate: Love letters

Yummy factor: Speaking of Kim, here’s her beau digging into crisp love letters. Shane just couldn’t stop munching on the beloved CNY snack, and judging by Kim’s face, it doesn’t look like she approves.

What she ate: Horse meat sashimi in Japan

Yummy factor: Aileen got her fill of mouth-watering Japanese food as she dug into izakaya bar snacks grilled miso tofu and eggplant. But the one we’re dying to try is the basashi, or horse meat sashimi. The marbling alone has got us salivating.

What he ate: Milo and biscuits

Yummy factor: Nothing will stop a man from snacking when he has a major CNY show ahead of him. We’re curious though -- why are these celebs sharing a single cup of Milo?

Yasminne Cheng

What she ate: Maldivian breakfast

Yummy factor: Yasminne was a self-proclaimed “happy bird” during her vacay. Just check out the spread on the table – we’ve got our eye on that tuna curry on the left! We wonder how she still managed to fit into her form-fitting cheongsam for the New Year?

Chen Xiu Huan

What she ate: Yusheng 

Yummy factor: Why have the usual yusheng when you can have it shaped in an adorable little pig? Xiu Huan adorned hers with mandarin oranges for ears and trotters and lots of shredded carrot and vegetables for good measure. Huat ah!

What she ate: Balinese-style yusheng

Yummy factor: Jean took off to Bali with hubby Glenn Ong for CNY and boy does she look like she’s in full-on holiday mode. And while the Balinese-style yusheng she had looks pretty healthy, we’re not so sure about the pork belly!

What he ate: Fortune cookie

Yummy factor: Apparently, Tosh hasn’t had a fortune cookie since he was a kid. Was it fate that led him to this one about investment advice, then? In any case, you know what they say -- fortune favours the brave.
