Long Weekend For the Filipino Family

August 20-21, 2012 are officially non-working holiday as declared by Presidential N0. 455 to observe the Feast of Ramadan and Ninoy Aquino respectively and we could only be happier as this would mean a long break for everyone. My kid can enjoy his home stay playing or watching his favorite movies. For us, I managed to join the trail run and another day of long off-road biking. To read the details of the proclamation, you can read the details below.
