What is not exciting? First, companies reduced the number of annual leave by the number of joint holidays. Second, the government not yet giving Joint Holiday for Vesak Day, Day of Silence and Lunar New Year.
If we look at May 2014, there are 2 working days (date 26 and 28) flanked by the 2 holidays, and date 30 flanked by a holiday and a half working day (Saturday, 31). For this case in Indonesia, people usually dub it as "Hari Terjepit Nasional" (my translation in English is "National Wedged Day") with the hope such days will be included as holiday.
May this post beneficial for you super busy man to draw up schedule in 2014. Pssttt... may also beneficial for printing business which in the near future will be flooded by the request to print calendar 2014 (laughing...ha..ha..).
Special note: This post was published because... while draw up my schedule in 2014 (how about you?), suddenly I miss blogging world. Warm regards for Ramana in India, Jim and Neil in Australia, Colson in Netherland, and Jean in America. Hopefully I and your blog readers can read the unique holidays in your country.
