Updates: Jay's birthday/anniversary; Kung Fu Panda 3; The Brain Season 3

Hi all!

Sorry for the long break but never fear, Jay's news updates are now here! 
(Haha....could not help that bit of rhyme...!)

So what was THE big event in the past week??
None other than our dear Mr Chou's birthday cum wedding anniversary celebration, of course!
Granted, the ceremony in Yorkshire on 17 January 2015 was a symbolic one, given that he and Hannah had actually already registered their nuptials earlier in 2014.
However, that will be the date which is best remembered by fans for all time, given the beautiful fairytale setting with Jay's music as the soundtrack. ;)

Let's watch the video again...I never get tired of, nor fail to be touched by it. *sniff*

Singapore's entertainment website, Toggle had a lovely write-up about my favourite couple:

Following the wedding anniversary was Jay's 37th birthday, which he spent with Hannah and friends, as evidenced by the pics and reports posted. 

Looks like they had a good game before the cake-cutting! 

Love this pic! Wish Hathaway had been there, too, though! 

With the whole gang! Hannah was probably the photographer as she posted this on her weibo with the caption:
"The theme of these pictures is: I *heart* Jay." :)

His students from The Voice also made a nice birthday greeting video for him! 

Here's to many more birthdays for our amazing Mr Chou! 


It was back to work the next day for Jay, when he proceeded to Shanghai for another Kung Fu Panda 3 event.

Too darn handsome in that outfit!
How does he carry off the skirt-pants combo so effortlessly??

Looking forward to the movie and his voiceover role of Monkey! 


Moving on, Jay made another guest appearance in Season Three of The Brain, which was broadcast on 22 January 2016.

Full show:

The emcee could not resist teasing him about the changes in his 'status' over the course of the past two seasons till the present, whence he started off as a single, eligible bachelor, got married and to his current state of fatherhood. ;)

The fan-made pic compilations below illustrate this oh-so-well! 

Season One: The stuff of millions of young ladies' dreams....

Season Two: Most romantic husband ever!

Season Three: Adorable Daddy!

He rocks the skirt-pants again! :)

Jay was his usual cool self but with his characteristic self-deprecating yet witty humour, which saw him handling some rather awkward moments (together with Matilda Tao) on this episode very well. 

1. Lightening the tension for the kid by bringing out the Tu Niu toy which he had autographed and asked the audience to encourage him on. 

2. Taking the initiative to ask the other judges to utilise the Red Light and doing so himself when a certain individual threw a hissy fit after engaging in a tiff with Dr Wei. 

Loved how Jay also got the audience to sing Snail for one of the contestants who mentioned that it was his favourite song. 

And of course, he had to mention his MV for Twilight's Chapter Seven when the Sherlock-Holmes-like contestant appeared. ;)

Concentrating.....and getting it right!


I shall sign off with two cute pics.

Cheerio for now!

Updates: Holiday; TRY; Beijing events

Happy New Year, peeps!

Hope the first ten days of 2016 has been fine for all of you thus far!

Here are the latest updates for Mr Chou.

First up, some holiday pics from the Gold Coast where Jay and family spent two weeks of quality bonding time with their Aussie relatives over the Christmas and New Year period.
Jay Chou Diaoness was privileged to receive two exclusive photos and is eternally grateful!

Du Ge happily pointed out the fact that he was not wearing!
No doubt alluding to the fact that he and Jay look to be the same height in the photo on the beach. ;)

Hmm....that bearded, capped and shades look appeared to be NOT such a hot favourite among the fans, somehow. ;)
Guess that's his way of maintaining some modicum of privacy. :P

Anyway, before you knew it, the holidays were over and it was time to get back to work again!


The official MV for TRY was released on 8 January 2016.
This is the theme song for Kung Fu Panda 3 and as is known, Jay is voicing the character of Monkey in the Chinese version of the movie.

Music: Patrick Brasca
Lyrics: Vincent Fang (Chinese); Celeste Syn (English)
Director: Jennifer Wu
Performed by: Patrick Brasca and Jay Chou

Watch and listen!

The song did not strike me much on my first time listening to it but that was because I was doing so sporadically while at work instead of giving it full attention, so excited was I to hear it when it was first aired.
But after listening properly, I was hooked!
With the MV, the song is even better and best heard on headphones. :)
The tune is catchy and Jay's rapping is awesome.
He is also singing more English but it was not easy to make out his voice....gotta listen very carefully!

I don't know about you guys but I LOVE KUNG FU PANDA!
The first two movies were such great fun and of course, Po is simply too adorable for words!
Can't wait for No 3!

Love to see Jay with kids!

Some info about the composer of the song and Jay's young apparentice, Patrick Brasca:

I'll be watching his progress.


Jay flew to Beijing for events on 9 January.

Netizens were, however, a tad dismayed by how dark and bearded he was, not to mention the inevitable talk about him putting on weight, which to me were all unavoidable aspects when one has spent two weeks with the sun, the sand and the sea, and of course plenty of good food and relaxation away from papparazi and fans.
Jay deserved that break and I'm glad he was able to chill out and recharge.

Press conference in Beijing on 9 January:

Another event for J Concept:

Performance in Hangzhou:


And to end off, here is Jay's greeting for the Chinese New Year, which will be upon us in less than a month's time!
