End of Ramadan and Ninoy Aquino Day

From Saturday up until Tuesday (Aug. 18-21, 2012) will be the long weekend for us here. Saturday and Sunday, being the weekend while August 20 (Monday) is the end of Ramadan (Eid al-Fitr or Eid’l Fitr) for our Muslim brothers.

August 21 in turn is Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino day and it was declared by Malacanang to be a non-working holiday. It will be the 29th year anniversary of the assassination of former Senator Aquino back in 1983. I remember I was in 3rd year highschool during that time when it happened and we even went to a place where his blooded clothing was on display.

Long weekend for students is heaven for they can play or watch TV endlessly at home or go out with friends since there are also 3-day sale at different malls. Other families even went out of town to bond with their loved ones. If long weekend is in favor for some students, some parents rather want their children to be in school.

For me, it’s just an ordinary day but it’s the time for me to finish all of my works. It’s also a good time to browse the internet endlessly while trying to find some good deals on clothes, shoes, Mens Flat Caps, vouchers for services or products etc.

I wanted ask some friends to go out and have some fun today but I just opt to stay at home because going out means shelling out some money and that is what I don’t want to do at the moment hehe. Anyway, there are some other day even if it’s not a holiday when I can go out. In fact, I’m staying away from too crowded malls too.
