About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    National Non-working Holidays 2011, Long Weekends & MMDA Number Coding

    You may have seen the list of regular holidays for 2011 on other blogs but this blog post is about the recently announced Proclamation 84 making this list official where it officially says goodbye to holiday economics of PGMA...back to regular holiday schedules.

    2011 Non-Working Holidays and Long Weekends

    The regular holidays include Jan. 1 (Saturday) as New Year’s Day;
    Araw ng Kagitingan – April 9 (Saturday);

    Holy Week 2011:

    Maundy Thursday – April 21
    Good Friday – April 22
    Labor Day – May 1 (Sunday)
    Independence Day – June 12 (Sunday)

    National Heroes Day – Aug. 29 (Last Monday of August)
    Bonifacio Day – Nov. 30 (Wednesday);

    Christmas Day – Dec. 25 (Sunday)
    Rizal Day – Dec. 30 (Friday)

    Special non-working holidays 2011:

    Ninoy Aquino Day – Aug. 21 (Sunday)
    All Saints’ Day – Nov. 1 (Tuesday)
    Last Day of the Year – Dec. 31 (Saturday)

    Declared special holiday for all schools is the EDSA Revolution
    anniversary on Feb. 25, which falls on a Friday (no classes)

    The Islam feast of Eid’l Adha (end of the hajj or pilgimage to Mecca)
    shall be celebrated as a national holiday besides Eid' Fitr (end of
    Ramadan for Muslims)

    Note: MMDA number coding is suspended during the holidays mentioned above. Number coding in Makati though needs to be confirmed as they operate the so-called Republic of Makati, thus no number coding suspension, not even a number coding window of 10am to 3pm as implemented almost anywhere in Metro Manila

    All in all, there are less long weekends in 2011 in the time of P-Noy compared with PGMA...I miss PGMA, but only for this one :P

    first time to see it, i felt sad. this simply meas fewer trips for me next year as i rely greatly on the three-day long weekend for most of my trips.
