When in Manila (or anywhere in the Philippines) you might wanna hold your horses before booking that flight for a loooong weekend you are soo looking forward to next month. Here’s the real deal: According to the Manila Bulletin website, August 29 (Monday) is a regular holiday while August 30 (Tuesday) is a special non-working holiday because of Eid’l Fitr (End of Ramadan).
For our dear BPO workers and Sunday people, August 21 (Ninoy Aquino Day) is a special non-working holiday (woot, woot!) All of these are in accordance with the Presidential Proclamation No. 84 which declares the regular holidays, special days(non-working holidays), and special holidays (for the schools) for the year 2011.
