Toggle's "best nine" pictures of 2017

JUST FOR FUN: With the year coming to an end, we ran our Toggle’s Instagram account (@toggle_sg – follow away!) through an online aggregator to find out what was our ‘best nine’ (read: most-liked) pictures on Instagram for 2017 – and what we could infer from its popularity.

Here’s what we learned: everyone loves babies and weddings. Celebrity wedding announcements claimed six out of nine of our top spots – including an imaging picture of 118 Season 2 fictitious couple Ya Hui and Charles Ng in wedding garb (guess fans really love their pairing!).

Babies was another popular subject as Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu’s family pictures with their second-born stole two spots. Even the picture of Jesseca posing with a real (but her reel-life) baby for new drama Babies on Board made the cut too and that can only mean one thing: everyone can’t wait to see a mini Jess or Jeremy come along.

We play KPOs and checked out some of the artistes’ best nine snaps of 2017. Read on for more.

Zoe Tay’s best nine on Instagram in 2017

The ever so private Ah Jie rarely posts pictures of her loved ones on social media, it’s no wonder the back view shot of her three boys and husband overlooking Marina Bay Sands was one of the most-liked picture on Instagram – that and a selfie she shared with her husband when they hit the slopes in Europe. The long-running friendship between Zoe and Chen Hanwei is equal parts cute and endearing, and perhaps the reason why they are so adored as BFFs.

Are we the only ones enjoying Joanne’s mummy musings on Instagram? Clearly not. With work taking a backseat for now as she focuses on raising Baby Qi and Qi didi, fans lap up any update they get from Joanne, from hers and Qi Yuwu’s birthday celebrations to their couple dates in Singapore and abroad. Together, the power couple dominated six out of nine spots on Joanne’s best nine.

Elvin Ng’s best nine on Instagram in 2017

2017 for Elvin was all about his ascension to All-Time Favourite artiste ranks – as seen by the number of snaps of him with the trophy and at Star Awards. Another notable mention goes out to the rare picture of him and Rui En (Ruivin lives on!) and the “stalking” picture taken by a member of the public without seeking Elvin’s permission. Ed’s note: It wouldn’t hurt to ask him nicely for a picture, would it?
