After a one-week break from the popular photo-sharing website Instagram, former first lady Ani Yudhoyono on Tuesday uploaded her first photo since she and her family left the State Palace more than a week ago.

The photo, entitled "Enjoying the morning at my home, my castle", shows Ani and former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono appearing to enjoy their free time reading magazines.

The former president looked relaxed, wearing a red polo shirt, white pants and sandals.

As of Tuesday evening, the photo had received more than 33,000 likes from Ani's 767,000 Instagram followers.

The former first lady got a name as an avid Instagram user during her husband's administration, uploading photos from the couple's trips as well as those of family members.

Ani also has a penchant for launching outbursts in the comments section of the website.

In January this year, she reacted angrily to comments criticising her for spending time on Instagram at a time when Jakarta was experiencing severe flooding.

Responding to the comments, Ani shot back, demanding to know why such criticism was not directed at the wife of then Jakarta governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.

Last week, Jokowi was sworn in as the country's seventh president in the presence of his wife, First Lady Iriana.

Iriana does not have any social media accounts.
