SG50 Picnic at Istana

FAMILY is everything to us. Many Families bond over a Picnic at Istana last Saturday.
FFL Families for Life

As part of SG50 celebrations, Families for Life(FFL) will organise monthly picnics throughout Singapore. Picnic at Istana was the first of many picnics for 2015.

Look out for the bright red FFL mobile cafe.

Picnic at Istana

Istana offers huge open space for families to roam, kids to run, and we even saw toddlers rolling down the gentle slope!

Perfect weather and clouds to layout your picnic mat and basket.

But kids chose soccer over picnic! They must have figured that it is a rare opportunity to kick soccer on the Istana’s beautiful lawn!

Families can have fun on the bouncing castles (old playground designs) too.

There was a mass diy Terrarium session for families too.


You do not need to be a horticulturist to craft your own pot of Terrarium. Add soil, stone, plant and decoration, that’s it! Our own Terrarium is now blossoming at home.

President Tony Tan made a Terrarium for himself too. We did not manage to photobomb him, but we did grab EnLai (Noose!)

Lovely weather, stately Istana. Families had an enjoyable picnic day.
Thank you FamiliesForLife for the invitation πŸ™‚
