Inspiring Instagrams that I Follow #001

These days, Instagram seems to have successfully replaced 9GAG for me.  I only follow accounts that I like (either the contents are interesting OR that they’re my real friends…lol).  I want to stay sincere and just “like” what I like (and secretly hope that people who follow me genuinely like my content too, unless they’re my real friends who got stuck with following my account due to friendship…then be prepared to be spammed XD ). ^^  *le sigh* my Instagram account is just as much of a big mixing pot as this blog. ^^”

Anyways, enough blahs.  Just want to bring some more attention to the following Instagram accounts that I find particularly inspiring or just has that special X factor (that’s not to say the rest of the other accounts I follow are not awesome…in fact, they’re all awesome and interesting!).  Not in any particular order:

Wubby Panda by wubbyland

Cute illustrations of an adorable Panda named Wubby Panda!  I hope that the creator will sell Wubby Panda merchandise someday!  The artwork is just amazingly cute and realistic (especially the food).  The food-related posts are some of the most deliciously looking 2D drawings that I’ve seen so far.

Little Yellow Bird by tweetykweelapis

Look! It’s Tweety bird! XD Looking at the world from the perspective of Tweety the plush toy. This is a fun and creative project. It especially helps to make those nasty “Monday blues” go away.  ^^

Veganmatoria by veganmatoria

Follow this account and be prepared to be inspired by this awesome young vegan lady!  She has tons of yummy vegan recipes and great at inspiring people to work out, change our lives for the positive, and being comfortable in our own skin.  I’m forever in love with her deliciously looking berry nice cream.  That’s right, it’s “nice cream”, not “ice cream”.

Anyways, have fun following them!  ^^

Recommendations: Slice-of-life Webtoon & Manga

Sneaking a bit of time here to show my appreciation for all of my favourite webtoons/manga/manhwa of the slice-of-life genre. Hope these recommendations will make for a rather relaxing (or lazy) weekend for you folks! ^^

I enjoy a lot of slice-of-life stories and there are a lot of good ones, but for some reasons these five really left a print in my heart even after a long time.

Annarasumanara by Ha Il-kwon

What does it mean to grow up?

“Do you believe in magic?” starts this incredible coming-of-age story of a teenage girl name Yoon Ai.  Standing at as one of the top of her class academically, Yoon Ai is hurrying herself to grow up faster so that she can take care of her younger sister and escape poverty.  However, regardless of social status and economic situation, the journey of growing up is never easy. As the story unfolds, Yoon Ai will learn and accept herself.  She will also realize that the magic of innocence needn’t be given up despite of how tough life can be. Another lesson illustrated through this story is that sometimes we shouldn’t merely take things at face value.  This is a breathtakingly beautiful story full of metaphors and figurative speech that will just warm you up by the end of the day.
