July hasn’t been so generous with holidays, and we sure do miss those one-day breaks from work. Thanks to August, we’re in for at least two guaranteed holidays, plus one extra holiday to cross our fingers for. It’s about time you pick that calendar up, and start making your holiday plans.
Ninoy Aquino Day – August 21
This holiday falls on a Tuesday, but we know what most of us would do—take the Monday off! That’s four long days of family-time, or just you-time if you wish. No need to go out of town; that can be exhausting. Have a relaxing staycation in the heart of the city where you don’t only get the comfort of a cozy bed and plush pillows, but also the best restaurants and shopping malls right at your doorstep! If one night wouldn’t be enough, then make it two with up to 60% OFF on Suites for a two-night staycation deal!
National Heroes Day – August 27
It’s the perfect month-ender—the last weekend of August is a long weekend! That’s also perfect for a two-night staycation, or just one if you wish to spend another day somewhere else. Take your family out for a nice meal at 22 Prime. They serve the best steaks in the area, and we’re not even kidding. Ranking 1st among steakhouses in Pasig on Tripadvisor, 22 Prime is a must-try.
Eidl-Adha – August 22
Eidl-Adha or Feast of the Sacrfice is a Muslim holiday that falls on the 22nd, right after Ninoy Aquino Day. We have yet to wait for the government to officially declare this day a special non-working day so let’s all cross our fingers and hope it does the trick.
Now, you can’t wait for August, can you? We can’t! So start planning before everyone else steals the best deals.
