This is the same question that I have been asking myself since January. The very same question my friedNs ask me in preparation for the so-called long weekend. So yesterday, I took it upon myself to write the Office of the Press Secretary in Malacañang Manila Philippines and ask that multi-million dollar question. And finally, I got an answer. The words right from the horse’s mouth:
According to Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita, February 25 is a working holiday. This was told during his weekly news conference at the Palace awhile ago. (Wednesday, February 13, 2008)
Yup folks, Feb 25 is a WORKING DAY. That means you have to return to your office desk before the bell rings. And never ever say to your boss that it’s People Power Day, or EDSA Day. Because this year our country will not be remembering that very historic event in our recent history.
Just scrap the plan of basking in the pristing beaches of Boracay or Puerto Galera from February 23-25. And for those who will be enjoying the cool climate of Baguio during the Panagbenga Festival, go back to Manila right after the parade has ended! Hahaha
February 25, has already been declared as a special non-wlorking holiday! So go, plan your long weekend now. Reserve an accomodation in Puerto Galera or in Boracay. Enjoy the cool breeze of February morning in Baguio during the Panagbenga Festival!
