Xu Bin

What he ate: His birthday cake to ring in the last year of his twenties

Yummy factor: Telltale sign of an old-school cake: the iconic pink-yellow-green candles. And you know what? Those cakes always taste great.

Kym Ng

What she ate: Roast meats, curry, cakes, and other delicious dishes that covered the table

Yummy factor: When conquering a meal like this, you need A) a stretchy waistband and B) a bed nearby when that food coma hits.

What he drank: A shot of cod liver oil in Iceland

Yummy factor: "What’s fish oil when you have eaten raw fish?" Desmond wrote. Um… we beg to differ. Sashimi and the gag-inducing fishiness of pure cod liver oil are entirely different. Hope the lemon wedge helped Desmond keep it down.

Chen Xiu Huan, Pan Ling Ling and Hong Hui Fang

What they ate: Dumplings at Jin Yinji's house - and picked up some cash and luck along the way

Yummy factor: What’s better than delicious dumplings? Dumplings with coins in them. Biting into one of these is considered good luck so looks like it will be a huat year for Ling Ling, Xiu Huan and Hui Fang.

Lee Teng

What he ate: Churros 

Yummy factor: Chomping on two churros at a time seems a bit greedy, but totally satisfying. Might have to steal this idea.

Jaime Teo

What she ate: A festive lunch with pals Jade Seah and Wong Lilin

Elvin Ng

What he ate: Yu sheng, which he tossed with members of his fan club, Elvinology, by the roadside

Yummy factor: Elvin and his Elves' Chinese New Year tradition of lo hei by the roadside takes street food to a new level.​​​​​​​

What she ate: Mini dog-shaped pineapple tart

Yummy factor: Aww…the nose and tongue on this bite-sized pup are almost too cute to handle – but we’d eat it anyway.

Dennis Chew

What he ate: Dog-shaped bun from BreadTalk and fish for the New Year

Yummy factor: Dennis’ smile says how much he delighted in the New Year-themed fare. He looked as happy as a kid with that fluffy bread pup.

Daren Tan

What he ate: Baskin Robbins cotton candy-flavoured ice cream with his wife

Yummy factor: Wait, what? You mean there isn’t an obstacle course of 10 toppings plus a waffle and edible flowers to pick your way through before licking the actual ice cream? Count us in.

Bobby Tonelli

What he ate: Bobby was featured in Allan Wu's Instagram story during a buffet catering session in the office

Yummy factor: TBH catered food is usually nothing to write home about, but nothing lures us from our corner like FREE FOOD. Judging by Bobby’s piled plate, he couldn’t resist either.

What he ate: Mandarin oranges

Yummy factor: We’ve had our fill of mandarin oranges by now, but we couldn’t help perking up at the sight of these oranges with the leaves and stems still intact. Hello, freshness.

Jocie Guo

What he ate: Popiah for the New Year and assorted chocolates on the seventh day (or everybody’s birthday)

Yummy factor: This is the kind of chocolate box that would give you a sugar rush plus a cavity or two. But just chalk it up to another Chinese New Year indulgence, promise to detox later and you’re good.

Chris Lee

What he ate: Grilled corn from Café Habana and fresh oysters in New York

Yummy factor: The picture doesn’t do it justice but believe us when we say nobody does Mexican street style grilled corn better than Café Habana. With this and the oysters, Chris sure is hitting up all the NYC must-eats.

What she ate: Oven Baked Molten Eggs with smoked salmon and avocado salad at Brawn & Brains Coffee

Yummy factor: This is what Cythia had for “snack time” – pretty lavish, huh? We’re won over by the generous serving of avocado alone.

What she ate: Chocolate banana crepe

Yummy factor: It’s sweet, as big as her face and easy to scarf down while shopping. Sounds like a dream.

Muttons

What they ate: Brunch at popular brunch eatery Eggs ‘N Things in Japan

Yummy factor: That’s the largest serving of whipped cream (about three cans’ worth?), but it was no match for the Muttons. Between the fluffy pancakes and hearty potatoes, this looks like brunch done right.

Oon Shu An

What she ate: She probably didn’t eat these herself (more like gave them to others during house visits), but we couldn’t help grinning at Shu An’s quirky getup in this Insta-worthy snapshot

Yummy factor: Would anyone say no to oranges handed out by this girl?

Phyllis Quek and Carole Lin

What she ate: A meal with friends that ended with longevity peach buns to celebrate Carole Lin’s birthday

Yummy factor: How satisfying it is to tear through an impossibly soft bun to the fragrant red bean paste that’s so moist it coats your teeth.
