It was Deepavali and we decided to make a trip to the Istana.
Happy children posing for pictures!
The grounds of the Istana. Lovely!
We got our tickets to visit the State Rooms. Unfortunately, there was a no photography rule indoors hence we couldn't take any pictures.
Outdoors and enjoying the flowers.
The children and their (only) tree climbing experience.
Group picture! The rains came after this and we ran for shelter.
After lunch, we headed off to the Asian Civilisation Museum.
We were there to catch the terracotta soldiers but the exhibition had ended its run. But we had a good time looking at the other exhibitions.
We didn't take many pictures though... but the museum was a fantastic place. We learned that admission is free for teachers and school-going children so we will definitely come back. We didn't manage to cover the entire museum though as we were rather tired.
