The popular photo-sharing application, Instagram has been a trend-setter since it was launched in 2010. People from all over the world come to Instagram to share experiences and all of their precious memories through photos and videos.

Now, the app has already reached a community of 800M users with 500M of daily active users. And since 2017 is coming to an end, we’re celebrating the 10 local and international IG accounts that made our year.

1. Masarap ba?

If you’re a food lover like us, you’ve probably seen a post from this account.

Masarap Ba? is an IG-based food review account where the administrators of the page try food from different restaurants, fast food chains or even junk food. They will give witty details about their eating experience and categorize it as masarap” or “hindi masarap.”

No doubt, the best Bolognese na natikman ko across all lifetimes. Gawa ng immortaaaaaaal! Ilabas ang kandila, bumili ng everlasting sa Baclaran at sambahin ngayon din! 🕯 Price: P330 (good for 2) Location ng @amarelacucina_kapitolyo: 91 East Capitol Drive, Brgy Kapitolyo Pasig . . . . . . . * RCBC credit card user kse ako, so pumayag ako na itry itong RCBC Mastercard Debit pambayad for foodtrips (dineposit ko yung pera ko dito instead), so hindi ko na kelangang magdala ng cash, mamroblema sa barya, iwas snatch/holdup or mahassle pa pumila sa atm. Widely accepted sya, basta tumatanggap ng card transactions. So far, wala pa naman akong naging bad experience (I'll let you know if ever), and true nga, hassle free gamitin at debit kaya good as cash. Also, binigyan nila ako ng total freedom at wala silang alam kung saan-saang restos ako nagpunta at kung ano ang verdict ko sa mga napili kong kainan (bahala daw ako para matesting ko talaga kung nagwowork yung debit card), so rest assured na I paid for this meal (as always) at hindi biased in any way dahil #1 sakin ang tiwala ninyo 😘 Did this para makaraise pa ng funds for my 🐕 and 🐈 friends ng Phil.

PAK O PALPAK: H&M Infinite Impact Eyecolor in "Golden Light" Budgey: PHP 349.00 Sa kagustuhan kong magkaroon ng Fenty Beauty "Trophy Wife" habang naghihingalo ang bulsa ko, naghanap ako ng papasa na dupe sa bagong bukas na H&M beauty section sa Megamall. Pero syempre sa eyeshadow nanaman dumikit ang tingin ko?! Hindi ako nabigo tho? Coz I saw the light! ✨ Syempre hindi siya kasing-kinang at tingkad hg Trophy Wife, pero yung resulta naman pwede nang pa-presyuhan sa alahera! Very fine ang pigments at shimmer mga mum! Mababa pa naman expectations ko sa beauty products ng mga clothing brands pero rumaravan si H&M! Baguhan pa ako sa eyeshadows pero para 'di siya kumalat sa fez ko binabasa ko ng slight ang brush para focuz na focuz lang sa eyelids ang application. So brush, brush ka hanggang sa crease, tapos tap mo sa inner lids para kumapal siya at may gradient effect. Pak! Parang tinubog na sa ginto yung eyelids mo. Subtle ang color at shimmer niya sa malayo (depende narin siguro sa skin tone) pero nakaka-SHOOKT ang pagkaginto ng malapitan. Nasasayo na kung pano siya gagamitin kung pang pa-virgin first dates ba o pang dance number sa ASAP. Be creative! 🏆✨👑 Verdict: PAK NA PAK! Madami pang kulay ang line na itu. Magsasawa ka!

Little Astro, are you having a happy Christmas? Look at these skiing young Santa Clausses. I thought Santa travelled in a sled, but maybe things are different these days. There may be more good children than before. And because there are more gifts to be delivered quicker young folks must have taken this happy job. Astro, because you didn’t cry a lot, you must have received lots of gift. I’ll also ask Arthur and Allan. #christmas #santaclaus Pequeno Astro, você está tendo um feliz Natal? Olhe para esses jovens Papai Noeis esquiando. Eu pensei que o Papai Noel viajava em trenó, mas talvez as coisas estejam diferentes nos dias de hoje. Talvez tenham mais crianças boas do que antes e assim deve ter mais presentes para serem entregues mais rapidamente. E esses jovens deve ter encarregados desse trabalho feliz. Astro, já que você não chorou muito, você deve ter recebido muitos presentes. Eu vou perguntar para o Arthur e Allan também. #natal #papainoel 아로야, 크리스마스 즐겁게 보냈지? 여기 스키 타는 젊은 산타 클로스를 보아라. 난 산타 할아버지가 썰매를 타고 오는 것으로만 알았는데 요즘에는 달라진 모양이야. 옛날보다 착한 아이들이 참 많아졌나 봐. 그래서 선물도 많이 준비해야하고 또 빨리 갖다 줘야하니까 스키 잘 타는 젊은이들에게 이 행복한 일을 맡긴 것 같아. 아로야, 넌 울지 않았으니까 선물 많이 받았을 거야. 알뚤과 알란에게도 물어봐야지.#산타클로스 #산타할아버지 #선물 #크리스마스
