April 23, 2011 is a special non working holiday

Good news! April 23, 2011, black Saturday was officially declared as an special non working holiday throughout the country.

President Benigno PNoy Noynoy Aquino III, signed the proclamation number 150 stating that Saturday - April 23 of this year as a special non-working holiday - nationwide.

This is I believe a very fair announcement by the president in consideration for the private sectors to also enjoy a long weekend and spend quality (and quantity this time) time to their love ones.

This is as I believe is a very logical move because Saturday is usually falls between good Friday and easter Sunday. They called it a sandwich day that is traditionally declared as a holiday.

"Our people must be given the full and uninterrupted opportunity to ponder on the significance of the Holy Week and to properly observe its traditions with religious fervor, without prejudice to public interest," as stated from the proclamation.

Government sectors, of course has nothing to do with this because they do not need to report to work on Saturdays.

Now what we have to worry is the suppose to be holiday on May 1, which will fall on Sunday, what a crap! How can we have a holiday for our Labor Day if it is on Sunday?

But, naaah, let's all worry that later, for now, we will try to maximize the four days vacation that we're about to enjoy.
