My Instagram Eye (Part II)


Armed with our phone and compact digital cameras everywhere we go, it has become more accessible for us to have another set of eyes to take a closer look at little things we normally would just cast a glance at. Most of the time, it's much more revealing to show a photo than to go through the whole storytelling complete with gesticulation. 

As mentioned, here's Part II of a glimpse at my Instagram account, which you may want to check out from time to time.


I looked up from my duffin and latte and saw Bear perched on her own seat, sat next to mummy, with her bag in tow


Take your pick from Orly nail lacquer swatches in a Sharjah ladies-only salon. I chose the red one on the upper left corner


Here are things a size won't tell you (plus your preferred size for a sales assistant to tell you), according to my first ever Zumbawear


Poor casualty of the winter sales. Found under an empty rail in a department store


Keyhole image of the main prayer room of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi


Hats off to the lady who wore this at a glittery Zumba Christmas party/fundraising for the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines



Glimpse of the winter sun on my first day back to work from my UAE visit


Seen at the bottom of a packet of butterscotch Border biscuits I demolished in one sitting


I don't see lizards in the UK, so it was a delight to see one in Sicily. It took trials with several camera settings to capture this lizard which appeared to be sunbathing inside the lamp


My niece shopped for a London bus


Full parking


Chandelier earrings. Two installed at a former slaughterhouse in the outskirts of Paris for a work do


Indulging the rarity of an empty London bus during rush hour en route to work


Please click My Instagram Eye Part I if you missed it. Thanks for looking.

Have a lovely weekend!

  3. The "Give Us Back Our Biscuits" is insanely cute. The lizard picture brings back childhood memories. I remember the time that I would just stare at the ceiling and wait for them to come out. Thanks for sharing these photos.

    1. You're welcome, and I'm glad to evoke some childhood memories. I know, I laughed hard when I saw the bottom of the biscuit packet. Hilarious!

  4. I love that we now have a very convenient means of documenting those interesting things around us, not to mention being able to instantly share those interesting things not just with immediate friends but with practically any person from the furthest corners of the globe. It still blows my mind from time to time.

    1. Very well said, Rhona! It's amazing how communication nowadays is done with a touch of the send/share button. And we didn't even have a landline in my area until the nid-90s!! Haha.

  5. The bear one is hilarious; it takes me back to my days when I used to have a doll that I would take everywhere with me and she'd have her own little seat in the living room, the car and any other place we went. Sometimes photos don't need a caption because of course they are self-explanatory, but in some cases, such as the bear photo, they do. Who would have understood it otherwise........xx

    1. Same here! Had a doll called Jennie, and she had a baby called Jane. Haha. Would they qualify as imaginary friends?? I'd say dead-pan ones. Haha xxx
