Never been to Wales but Penzance and Edinburgh, i think somehow Scottish more open to immigrants rather than English people? Too bad they dont have the autonomy in fixing immigration policy otherwise I will be there...

Don't get me wrong. The Welsh are great, friendly people. In fact they have welcomed more refugees than the English or Scots. Cardiff being a coal and iron ore port in the 19th and 20th century makes it a very cosmopolitan city. Areas of Butetown and Grangetown are heavily populated with North Africans and Asians. Its when you go north of Cardiff onwards, (the Valleys) then the landscape gets whiter  laugh.gif

What I mean by Welsh being parochial is they are very nationalistic. The don't like the English and top positions are very usually kept for themselves. You see that distinction in academia as well. I'm generalising a bit here but just to give you an idea.  laugh.gif

Malaysia is great if you are well off. Penang is considered one of the best place for retirement for foreigners😀

Never did like Brits weather.  Pretty wet in South Wales.  People were great tho...managed to pick up a bit of their accent after a short study stint and I carried that to Noorthern England.  Many times I got this funny look..'You dont look like Welsh to me!!"....  ha ha
I suppose after all these years I do kinda think that in a gobal world now places really are just the same.  Its them people that makes them different.  Many who get to do stints in those faraway places never really gets that.

Btw this summer has been great. Long sunny days, short nights, fire up the outdoor pizza oven, wine and beers....this is the life!

You are right. The winter can drag though. But Wales is home for me. It's safe, comfortable and peaceful.

LOL, it started many years back when my kids came back from school and announced we all need to be 'anti-nestle'.
Lots of topics on this. TBH, Nestle has such a huge grip on the food industry, no way we can completely stop Nestle.
Just google their confectionery range for instance! Its just a gesture that they should help the community more.

Subjective really. Don't they say racism is everywhere and anywhere? How does one measure racism? You do read of racially motivated attacks off and on in newspapers. There seems to be a rise in attacks on Muslims and recently in the wake of Brexit, there has been a rise in anti-Polish and Eastern Europeans. The papers here tend to over hype everything. But on a personal level, I have never been faced with racial abuse nor have I witness one myself. I have often discussed this matter with my family, wife and kids but they have the same story.

The neighbourhood where I live is rather mixed and has been peaceful. My workmates are nice people and I have made many good friends here. To put things in a nutshell, I think at a face to face level, or in dealing with people here in general, they show very little if any racial connotations. What they really feel in their mind and heart may be completely different.

There are robust laws here against discrimination and racism. On the whole I feel less discriminated here than Malaysia simply because in Malaysia racism is institutionalised. For example by the time you are born, you are either a non or a bumi. And then as you move on in life you realise that university places are again subject to this policy, etc, etc. That kind of discrimination, you don't face here. icon_rolleyes.gif

I'm in my 50's now. So now just work in retail part time to cover monthly expenses. Too old and too tired to be doing anything 'serious' now tbh.
If you follow some of my early 'education' threads you probably know my background. Life is short, enjoy yourself before its too late! YOLO all the way now. smile.gif
