I have no ideal.... But heard there's a few beautiful gardens there.... Also, there's a swan lake with I think a few swans in it.... In addition, I think the buildings inside is quite colonial type....

I have a feeling that's it's going to be quite crowded so maybe candids is also possible....

Anyway, it's once a year kind of thingy as the Istana doesn't open it's door to the public very often so it's a rare chance to do some photography inside.....

So don't miss this chance....

:D

Okie. here's something from the papers.

THIS tranquil spot, which President S R Nathan counts among his favourites at the Istana, is the largest of five ponds in the grounds.

The beautiful landscape is one of the subjects of the book, Gardens Of The Istana. The 10,000 trees which grace the President's official residence are the subject of a new book, Gardens Of The Istana.

Written and published by the National Parks Board, it tells the story of the stately building and its beautifully landscaped grounds.

Soft-cover copies of the book can be purchased for $38 on Sunday, when the Istana is open from 8am to 6.30pm for National Day celebrations.

Also on sale will be potted plants from the gardens, snacks prepared by staff, and 250 sets of four President's Challenge 2003 ez-link cards signed by Mr Nathan.

Picture can be view here: http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/topstories/story/0,4386,202404,00.html

So quick quick, come come. Don't miss this chance.


:D

Before you can wack the president you'd probably have been shot dead.
