Abrickadabra 2017: The Philippine Lego Fan Convention

Last May 27, 2017, I attended Abrickadabra 2017, a Lego fan convention organized by the Philippine Lego Users Group (PhLUG), held in Promenade Hall in Greenhills.

It showcased the awesome creations of several PhLUG members. The event also became a venue for buying, selling and trading Lego sets, minifigs, spare bricks, and other Lego-related stuff.

UITF Investing 101: Equity Funds are for Long Term Investing

I joined a UITF investing group in Facebook recently and I was surprised with the short term investing mindset of some of the members there, a mindset that has unfortunately influenced members who have zero-knowledge or have little knowledge on UITF investing. As someone who has been investing in UITFs, Mutual Funds (MF) and stocks since 2006, I felt the responsibility to share my views on UITF investing, what I believe is the true essence of UITF investing. I have to admit that at first, I was a hesitant to post what I've written because I'm not sure how most of the members would take my opinion. I'm glad that I pressed the "Post" button because my message received an overwhelming response.

I would like to re-post the message here, so it can also be shared to other people who are new to UITF investing, or are about to try UITF investing.
