Vesak Day falls on 10 May 2017, which is a Wednesday. Which means that you can either take your annual leave on Monday, Tuesday (8 & 9 May) and enjoy a super long weekend from 5 – 10 May; or take Thursday and Friday off (11 & 12 May) and take a super long break from 10 – 14 May.

National Day also falls on a Wednesday, which means that you can plan your leave the same way you planned for Vesak Day – take leave on 7 & 8 August and enjoy a super long break from 5 – 9 Aug (Sat – Wed), or take off on 10 & 11 Aug and take a break from Wed to Sun.

Deepavali falls on 18 Oct 2017, another Wednesday. well, by now you know the drill.

To take 6 days of annual leave and enjoy 15 days of break is well worth it! Don’t you think?
