Our SG50 Weekend countdown continued with a visit to the Istana grounds today.

The skies were generally clear even though we welcomed the slight drizzle in the afternoon to bring down the scorching heat to a much bearable portion. It was helpful in that the roads leading to the Istana Building were lined with huge rain-trees that provided a welcome respite from the sunny weather.

The State Rooms were also opened today and we had a rare glimpse into the elaborate interiors. This was a great Sunday to be out and about as we relived our NS memories where we were posted here during our Active Service.
