Tofu Tuesday: Rainy weekend

We had a lot of rain on Sunday. It was quite muggy so I opened the front door to let in some fresh air and the sound of the rain. Tofu the bunny is blind and I like to think that he appreciates sounds more as a result.

Tofu Tuesday: Instagram edition

Although Tofu doesn’t have his own Instagram, any Tofu-related post has always been popular there. I guess Tofu Tuesday just makes more sense on an image-heavy platform. A fluffy bunny just brightens up any foodie’s feed. I haven’t given Tofu a separate account so I can count his followers as my own. Ha! But if you do just want to see Tofu posts, I’ve given him his own hashtag #TofuTheBunny. It’s been exactly one year since I started using Instagram and I’ve recently reached a milestone of 3000 followers. Yikes! Thank you! Somehow I missed the 2000 milestone, I think it was sometime over the summer holidays but this time around, I’m ready to celebrate and reflect. I’ve written a list of 12 things I’ve learned about Instagram so far. One tip for each month I’ve been addicted to Instagram because let’s face it, this is addiction. What I’ve learned about Instagram so far: Experiment. Look at things differently. Shoot outside your comfort zone. See what happens. If it all turns to custard, you can delete your photos. Use …

Instagram update

I have been using Instagram for 30 days now. I started using Instagram to force myself to take more photographs using my phone. I hated my camera phone a month ago, now I feel more confident. I thought I’d be an average 1 photo a week kind of girl, but one month later, it’s my count is closer to 30. Yikes! Here’s what I’ve learned so far: Instagram is insanely addictive. Photos taken using the Instragram app suck. I use my phone’s camera, then save and post to Instagram. Hashtags and proper tagging gets you more exposure. You’ll probably want to download some cute emoji keyboard. You’ll start looking at your world from a square composition. There are a surprising number of boobs on Instagram. People seem to like boobs. You can share to Zomato or Facebook and another few social networking sites instantly or at a more suitable time. You can add location, hashtag and tag people after you’ve posted. Light is your friend. Latergram. Feel free to check out what I’ve been up to outside of this blog over at …

‘Gram Whores R Us

Hi I’m Genie and I used to take horrible photos of food. Almost as bad as Martha Stewart. These days I’m comfortable behind my DSLR and I got there through practice. Most bloggers wouldn’t point you in the direction of their embarrassingly horrific early photos and blog posts, but I’m not most bloggers. I don’t care that I started off as a shitty photographer. Look at the photos here and here. Seriously, check them out, especially that first one. Ewww! Even though I love photography, I hate taking photos on my phone. Even though my camera is heavy, I carry it around if I think I’ll come across something I’d like to take a photo of. I was one of those people that owned a Nokia brick when my friends were getting their first iPhone. I finally got a decent smartphone last year – a Galaxy S4 mini to be precise. I was reluctant that I would want or enjoy using a smartphone, but now I’m a convert. I am obsessed addicted a frequent user of Pinterest and Facebook. …
