Dean and I are back on the grounds of Istana. So far,this is the 2nd event that we are doing at the Istana for 2017.The Istana is the official residence and office of the President of Singapore. Meaning "palace" in Malay, it is where the President receives and entertains state guests. The Istana is also the working office of the Prime Minister of Singapore.
It is the 3rd year that The Colourful Faces Studio has been appointed as the official photographers for this prestigious event held once a year at the Istana.
