No, you don’t have to fly all the way to Hong Kong, China or Taiwan; you just need to head on down to Ion Orchard. Yup, Singapore’s newest shopping addition has been seeing loads of celebrities within their walls of late.
Last week, country superstar Carrie Underwood turned up for an hour-long concert, and tomorrow evening (Oct 23), singer-actor Wang Lee Hom (above) will be doing his concert outside the mall too, to mark the final day of the establishment’s grand opening celebrations called Constellation.
And on Nov 6, one of Taiwan’s hottest pop stars, S.H.E. (below) will make an appearance at the Osim store to launch the Osim uKimono, a “complete all-in-one slimming device that burns fat and tones muscle while massaging to enhance circulation” – or so I’m told.
Personally, I’m not sure why Selina, Hebe or Ella would need this device, when they’re trim enough as it is! But hey, I’m definitely going to be there doing my fanboy thing and get some snaps.
I guess it’s time to keep an eye on Ion.
Oh, and this just in: On Oct 27, Chinese star Zhang Ziyi (below) – or is it Ziyi Zhang now? – will be here again. This time, she’ll be here to officiate at the opening of the Omega flagship boutique, she being one of the ambassadors for Omega and all.
And yes, I know she’s technically not a singing star, but here’s something more pressing: Is Zhang Ziyi hotter than the Omega Constellation that was done for her? Only one way to find out.
(The female contingent in the office were, of course, hoping George Clooney would turn up, but hey, here’s a gratituous shot of him anyway…)
