Can you still remember keeping a piggy bank when you were younger?
Well, when I came here in the UK, I always make sure to keep some coins in my pocket for emergency purposes such as fare in the bus in case my oyster got empty and when paying in some public toilets as people here in the UK says "I want to spend a penny" which actually mean that someone wants to wee.
Anyways, as my everyday habit of keeping coins, I already filled a huge biscuit tin and realised that it should go as my cupboard gets heavier. This morning, I went to a supermarket to turn my pennies to a voucher that I can spend in the grocery store. And ta-da! a bag of coins costs £13.90. hahah! :D
I'm so busy pouring my coins in this machine, it is the opposite of the machines you
can see in  the arcade that changes you paper bills into coins.
I'm so overwhelmed that I was able to raise £13 but I end up paying thrice for my groceries. 
Yep, that was really early in the morning. I woke up at midnight and didn't manage to get more sleep, as I was waiting for the sunrise, out of nowhere, I started to crave for pandesal (soft white bread that's usually newly baked and still steaming when bought)  and dairy cream (a brand of butter in the Philippines that usually goes with pandesal).
I instantly put my trainers and hoodie on, took my bag of coins and walked to Sainsbury. Cravings met. x
