Buckingham Palace & StJames Park

On the 3rd day in London, the folks and I visited the Buckingham Palace to watch the world famous 'Changing of Guards' duty. I thought we were already kiasu enough to reach half an hour earlier before the parade started, but it was already mad packed when we reached which means, no good spots and so.. mehhhhh~ pictures.

2 guards only which means the Queen isn't inside the Palace! If she's in, there'll be 4 guards :D
After the much boring wait under the hot sun + facing the irritated faces of many, the parade finally started!

I thought one part was kind of funny, the military band was playing to the tune of 'YMCA'? Then all the crowd outside started singing hahaha so not formal.

Check out the queue yoz! What's good abt London is that most musuems are FREEEEEEE. hahaha so y'can just visit museums all day long just that you'll get bored somehow after awhile, like everything just looks the same to you. Natural History museum kinda different though cuz it houses the fossils of the extinct dinosaurs!!!!
