What the stars ate this week

It's been a sweet week for the stars - Qi Yuwu got to celebrate his birthday in advance; Fann Wong and Zed Lee decorated their own gingerbread house; and Diana Ser and Yvonne Lim went baking with their kiddos in Taipei. Meanwhile, Rebecca Lim indulged in a Japanese set lunch, and Star Search 2019 champ Zhang Zetong and Vanessa Ho, who clinched the Breakthrough Award, treated their fellow finalists to a yummy hotpot dinner at Hai Di Lao.

What they ate: Hotpot dinner at Hai Di Lao

Yummy factor: Winner of the Breakthrough Award Vanessa Ho made good on her promise to treat fellow Star Search finalists to Hai Di Lao and Zhang Zetong (left), being the gentleman (and champ) decided to split the tab with her. We're pretty sure they ate to their heart's content -- especially runner-up Herman Keh, who had his ladle filled with ingredients.

What they ate: Birthday cake

Yummy factor: Despite their tight schedules, with one having just arrived back in Singapore and the other leaving again for work, both Joanne and Yuwu managed to have a simple celebration at home for his birthday (Nov 28) in advance. We wonder if Baby Qi chose the cake?

What she ate: Quinoa salad

Yummy factor: Ya Hui fought her cravings for all things sinful, and went for a antioxidant-rich quinoa salad and fresh juice combo at The Lokal instead. Well, think of it this way: Diet now so you can feast all you want when you are filming in China.

What she ate: Festive eats at 11 Hamilton

Yummy factor: It's not even December yet and Jean's festive feasting has already begun. The Class95 DJ indulged in all sorts of festive dishes from crispy croquettes to baked flounder with herbs to lamb and potatoes, plus yummy burnt cheesecake to finish off the meal. Go easy, Jean, or you'll be bored of Christmas nosh by the time festive season comes.

Yummy factor: Pornsak too has gotten a head start on Christmas, celebrating in local style with "sedap" nasi lemak turkey that awoke his senses, mochi snowman with liu sha (custard) filling, and Christmas ham char siew style. "If ham and char siew had a kid, this is it!" said Pornsak. We can't wait to try this offspring.

What she ate: Teppanyaki

Yummy factor: Takasaki, Japan, is probably Jeanette’s second home right now. It’s also where the city’s ambassador got to grate her own fresh wasabi and savoured amazing teppanyaki with the freshest produce (of her choice!) and perfectly-marbled chateaubriand.
