I was stop by 2 policeman outside the Istana today, at 1805hr.
All I wanted was to take a photo of the xmass lighting hanging on the trees and the Istana Gate.
One of the policeman told me I cannot take photo of the Gate. I can only shoot in the opposite direction, ie shoot towards the road.
1) We can take photo of the change of guard parade including the gate.
2) We can even take photo of the garden and the exterial of buildings inside the Istana during open house on festive days.
3) How can it cause security issues shooting the lightings and the gate with the usual guards? Cannot even see the garden, let alone the buildings.
