Instagram-ed Korea

By now, we all know that Facebook has bought over Instagram for $1 billion and all that jazz.  I have been playing with Instagram long before that but stopped until recently just before the news broke, I got back to using Instagram again. Then Instagram also became available with the Android version, so I have even more new followers. 

In addition to the daily random shots (which are usually of food, food and more food!), during intervals, I have started to share photos of my many overseas trips to different countries.  Instagram has given my old photos a new lease of life with different filters and hence different feel and look (although I still do not really fancy the square frame). It helps me re-live my memories of the places I have set foot in. 

If I am not lazy gamed enough, I will share in this blog those I have shared in Instagram. You can find me in Instagram under STUMPBO (I need to approve you though...).  

Here are some photos from my South Korea trip, instagram-ed.  Annyeong!!
