    Congrats Brangelina On Getting Hitched!

    One of the best-looking couples in the world has officially gotten married!

    After nine years and six children, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have gotten hitched. The wedding ceremony was said to have taken place in France last Saturday, Aug 23rd.

    The power couple tied the knot in a low-key, private ceremony in a chapel at Chateau Miraval located in the village of Correns. The pair’s children – Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6 – were a big part of the celebration.

    The Associated Press broke the news a few hours ago. It was reported that Maddox and Pax walked Jolie down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne threw rose petals, and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

    The marriage has been eagerly awaited for the last couple of years. Many were left wondering and speculating as to when Brangelina would be official after getting engaged back in 2012.

    Well, congratulations are in order then! We wish the newlyweds a happily ever after!

    Eye Want Candy: Lawrence Wong

    Handsome, talented and close to home, we welcome Lawrence Wong into our league of extremely fine Eye Want Candy gentlemen!

    Who is this ‘Lawrence Wong’?

    Born in Johor Baru, Malaysia but spending 23 years of his life in Singapore, Lawrence Wong (王冠逸) is certainly no stranger to limelight with his robust showbiz careers. With a repertoire of work that range from starring in TV show to modelling, Mr. Wong is pretty much an established actor, model and singer in both Malaysia and Singapore.

    Naturally, great talent and good looks are not meant to be contained — this popular chap is now looking to build a name in Taiwan and China!

    5 Reasons Why We Love Lawrence Wong.

    5. He Sings!

    Apart from his modelling, acting and hosting gigs, this handsome fellow also sings! The multi-talented man shares his crooning career began after he started singing theme songs for dramas he acted in. This then instinctively led to the recent release of a mini album, entitled ‘Shallow Love,’ in Singapore.

    4. He Is Crazily Photogenic!

    It doesn’t matter if it’s in the papers…

    A studio photo shoot…

    August Man Malaysia 2014

    Or if it’s just a selfie he casually took…

    Lawrence Wong is one crazily photogenic chap; and we’re not complaining ! Shall we have another image of this looker to prove our point? Yes, why not!

    3. He Makes A Great In-Law!

    While we would prefer him as our own and not as an in-law, this point was simply meant to introduce Lawrence Wong’s latest TV show — ‘In Laws 2.

    ‘In Laws’ is the story two bickering mother in-laws with different personalities and outlook in life. Lawrence Wong’s performance in this drama-comedy garnered him the “Best Male Lead Actor” award at the recent Asian Television Awards!

    Due to the success and high-ratings for season one, the Malaysian TV show is back again for season two. The drama series airs on NTV7 every monday to Thursday at 9:30pm, starting from May 20th.

    2. He Loves Animals!

    In an interview, this Eye Want Candy shares that he has a profound love for animals; especially for cats! As mentioned by the man himself: “I am a huge animal lover. But I do particularly love cats because I feel that there are certain similarities between us. Like cats, I am more of the chill kind of person and I love to laze.”

    It is perhaps this love of his that led him to care for an adorable Munchkin cat names Eskybaby. However we are sad to inform you that the adorable feline passed away last month at the age of seven.

    Rest in peace darling Eskybaby, your daddy and fans miss you dearly. And to dear Lawrence Wong, we’re sorry for your loss and sincerely hope that another furry friend will put back the same smile Eskybaby gave you.

    1. His Nice And Positive Energy!

    One of the things we love best about this boyish-looking gentleman is that despite his established name in the industry, he’s still pretty much a down to earth and a genuinely great guy. The fact that he’d unintentionally slip in some words of wisdom here and there definitely is also a plus point.

    Well said sir! He’s nice, charming, gifted and has incredibly good looks — what’s not to smile about this guy

    What you’ll need to make your man look like Lawrence Wong.

    Formal: Dark-coloured two-piece suit (casual fit), bow-tie (occasional), leather shoes and vest

    Casual attire: Simple t-shirt (printed or plain), plain or checkered tops, low-waist fitted dark jeans, leather jacket

    Accessories: Snapback hat, sunglasses, watch, love for animals and great personality.

    [EXCLUSIVE] Amber Chia & Daphne Iking Talk Motherhood

    After we talked about Attachment Parenting and Extended Breastfeeding post-Mother’s Day, we decided to ask a couple of our favourite celebrity mothers what they thought about those issues. Read on to find out what model Amber Chia, 30 and TV personality Daphne Iking, 33, have to say, as well as their tips on motherhood.

    Attachement Parenting

    Amber: When it comes to being attached to my son, I have trained him to be an independent boy. I had to stop breastfeeding him after four-months due to a busy schedule and all the traveling that I do. These days I make sure that I’m not stuck to him 24-hours, so he gets used to the idea of not seeing Mummy and doesn’t start crying everytime I’m not around.

    It does take a while, but I’ve noticed after a month or two that he has started to understand whenever I tell him “Mummy has to go work now” and so it’s always important to keep repeating and explaining to them.

    Hitting children or using violence is something the older generation prefers to do to discipline children but I don’t think it’s a good way to teach kids. If they do something wrong, teach them to say sorry, or say please, thank you – tell them what’s right.

    Daphne: With my first child, Isobel, I only managed to breastfeed her for less than a month due to some turbulence in my personal life at the time. I was a single mother, and thankfully she grew up to be very independent and not clingy. This was probably due to the fact that she had to spend time with my parents, and a nanny as well – but she’s a good girl, and she listens.

    After I remarried and had a second daughter, Iman, she was a little harder to let go – but it wasn’t a case of child being clingy, it was the opposite! I don’t know whether it has anything to do with being genetically different or if it is due to the deeper attachment due to breastfeeding, but she does require more attention than the first child.

    Extended Breastfeeding

    Daphne: I know it’s healthy and it’s natural, but something about a child who already has teeth growing and still wanting to breastfeed feels a little weird!

    I would give breastfeeding a maximum of two years, because it is a very tiring process that takes up a lot of your time. It’s not about not loving your child – but you need to recognise that sometimes it’s more a comfort thing than an actual need for milk, so this is the time to find other ways to comfort them besides breastfeeding so that they grow up to be more independent.

    Amber: Personally, I don’t think that kids get any extra benefits or nutrients after breastfeeding for over a year – there’s only so much that breastfeeding can give, and after a while and it’s better for them to get benefits from other types of intake.

    3 Tips for Mothers

    Daphne: As a career woman who has to divide herself equally between work and home, I do have to stress on having quality time with your children. 24-hours is not necessary, but you do need to set aside alone time with each of them for about two to three hours at least.

    There’s no point spending quantity time with them, if you’re only getting angry and annoyed at them which is only natural when you’re trying to juggle a few things at once – the last thing you want is to put more anger into the relationship.

    Amber: This is especially true with children these days, quality time is so important. Most kids today don’t get the chance to talk to their parents who are busy working, which often leads to depression or feelings of abandonment. They really need someone to share their feelings or just talk about things that are happening in their lives.

    It is my hope to become my son’s best friend when he grows up, so in order for that to happen I can’t be too strict with him.

    Daphne: I think mothers should also remember not to neglect themselves and other people in the family. Most mothers often put so much emphasis on their children that they often forget about themselves and their spouse. No matter how tired, exhausted, or unsexy you may feel – always remember about the other ‘baby’ in the house. The role of a woman is such that you need to be able to balance everything in the family and not let anyone feel neglected – especially yourself!

    Amber: A lot of mothers tend to overpamper and be overprotective of their kids – making them too dependent and needing their mothers to be everywhere with them!

    Let them be independent, while still looking after them and don’t forget to pamper yourself whenever you have some time to yourself. Balance the love!

    Daphne: The final tip would be, not to stress yourself out to be the “perfect” mother. A lot of times you’ll hear other mothers asking you “Have you put her in ballet, is she in this school, etc etc..”. Just remember that it’s all right not to go along with the Joneses, but just to encourage your child to be the best they can be.

    Amber: As a first time mother, I have to agree – don’t be too nervous or think too much! A lot of mother’s get too ‘kancheong’ and overstress themselves! I learn from my son, because each child has a different personality.

    The most important thing is that they’re healthy and for you to enjoy motherhood, and be a fantastic mom!

    Both Amber and Daphne are part of the judging team of the Glowing Youthful Mother Contest 2012.
