Golden Jubilee CNY Garden Party at Istana

PicsArt_1425224667141 The above photo taken at the Istana on 1st March, 2015 when I attended the Chinese New Year Garden Party 2015.

It is my pleasure and honour to be invited to the Chinese New Year Garden Party at the Istana by the Prime Minister and his Cabinet Colleagues, especially this is the “Golden Jubilee Singapore50” celebration of the 50th anniversary of independent Singapore.

Memories rushed through my brain as I recalled my first visit to the Istana on 12th October, 1963 as a member of the British Red Cross Society in school.  Please share my fond nostalgia memories in a previous blog  here . jsatistana_redcross At the Chinese New Year Garden Party 2015 PicsArt_1425224174871 PicsArt_1425223580308 PicsArt_1425222985209
