Finally. September 10, 2010 is a holiday! President Benigno S. Aquino III, through Proclamation No. 26, has just declared September 10 as a non-working holiday to be one with our Muslim brothers in celebrating the end of ‘Ramadan,’ the holy month of fasting. Formally, the festivity is called ‘Eid ul-Fitr.’
If I’m not mistaken, September 10 is the first and only holiday this month. Not bad. At least we still get some every now and then. Unlike the previous President, the current one isn’t too fond of holidays. Or so I think.
So, it’s Friday once again and everyone’s looking forward to the weekend. I want mine to be restful. I feel I need to rest so I could get rid myself of the cold and cough that has been pestering me for two weeks now.
Due to conflicts in schedule, my officemates and I postponed our Binondo trip once again. We were supposed to have dinner at Sincerity Café and Restaurant tonight as thanksgiving for our getting retained in the office. The new date we set is Monday next week. I hope we push thru with our plan already.
The boyfriend and I are like other normal, young couples today who celebrate this thing called ‘monthsary.’ Ours falls on the 18th and that’s the reason why it’s a big deal. We’re not overly romantic, though, so each monthsary is different. Sometimes we go out and watch a movie, other times we just have dinner and do some window shopping at the mall.
For this month, we decided to have dinner at Yellow Cab just stay home. Actually, it will just be him as I’ll be going straight to the restaurant tonight (my part-time work). We have some guests and as usual, the tour-guide is needed.
