    wahahahahahahaha. I'm so sorry cam't find any videos with English subtitle. hahahaha. But this is mainly intended for Filipinos who moved to UK. hehe

    but the videos are about:

    1. What is stock market. How it works.
    2. The importance of saving and investing early.
    3. What if compound interest. How money earns a lot through compounding.

    :) Sounds interesting. From my perspective I like the idea of dabbling in stocks but Im not really a gambler. I think those who study the market plus associated world events can make better judgements about rising/falling prices.

    Nickel could have been a recent good investment had I known Duterte and co were going to shut all the mines :rolleyes:

    It's ideal for sleeping, the cold weather is, but makes you want to do nothing during the day. Oh well, just look forward to Spring and Summer :D

    Yeah, a lot of traders suffered so much losses when they announced that they're shutting down mining firms. Fortunately, I don't have any mining companies in my portfolio so I'm still good. I think this is where one should study and understand first how stocks work to maximize profit and avoid incurring losses. :)

    Proper clothing is the best solution for the cold weather. Every time someone asks me how I find the Uk weather, I say it's no big deal. Heater in the house, or coat outside plus gloves. Lucky my mum-in-law gave me a lot of jumpers so it doesn't matter that I brought t-shirts & off-shoulders. :)

    Good for you young lady, no reason not to enjoy the great outdoors regardless of the weather, its not as if we have adverse weather conditions here in the UK, it never really gets that cold and it certainly never gets too hot :)

    When I was in Japan I hate to go outside because my hoodies won't keep me warm so before I left the country, coat was my priority.

    We gotta love the weather here because that's the way it is. :)

    It won't be for long and you'll get used to it! I used to go to Trafalgar Square in London as there are lots of Filipino there over the weekend but then we moved here in NorthEast. I have seen some but haven't really had a chance to socialise. If you wish to speak Tagalog call Virgin Media, their call centre are based in the Philippines and you can speak to them in Tagalog but they have to respond in English!

    Go on tripadvisor and look at "things to do" for where you live. I've done it my home town and its amazing what you find and much of it is free as well. Where I live in Manchester there are loads of museums and exhibitions. Tells you more about the history of where you are living. things that even the locals do not know.

    That is actually a great idea! I have noticed that there are a lot of museums in UK are free of charge. You can actually spend an entire day inside one (took us one day to explore the British museum). There should be a place near you.

    We were in London last weekend and it was warmer there than here in Birmingham.
    I walked around the Buckingham Palace up to Sherlock Holmes museum then to London tower bridge just wearing a long sleeved shirt and leggings. I loved it!

    I enjoy Liverpool so does the missus, we will be there for a couple of days in a few weeks time, I'm going to go to the Cavern Club on this occasion.

    I like what the council has done, with the improvements to Albert Dock and Liverpool one, gradely folk in Liverpool too which is another thing I like.
