SINGER Jay Chou was caught stealing glimpses at his actress wife Hannah Quinlivan from the crowd at the Cannes Film Festival, reported Sin Chew Daily.
The King of Mandopop reportedly arrived in Cannes, France, with his wife via helicopter.

Quinlivan walked the red carpet in a black gown by Armani Prive.
She later posted a picture of herself on Instagram with a message to her husband: “Thank you to the man in shades standing outside @jaychou.”> Two Malaysians – rapper Namewee and singer-songwriter Evangeline Wong – have been nominated in separate categories in Taiwan’s prestigious Golden Melody Awards, joining other big names such as Jolin Tsai and Sandy Lam.

> A Year Four pupil in Ampang Jaya, Selangor, was told to do 100 ketuk ketampi (ear squats) because she forgot to bring her homework to school, China Press reported.
Her mother claimed her daughter had been given such punishments for the last two years, adding that the latest incident happened on April 28.
Known only by her surname Lin, the woman said her daughter was asked to do 30 to 100 ear squats whenever she left her textbooks or homework at home.
“My daughter has thalassaemia. Doing so many ear squats will affect her health,” she said.
Lin met with the headmaster and the teacher in February, but they denied punishing her daughter.
She has since arranged for her daughter to receive counselling, claiming that the incidents had traumatised her.
