Malacañang Palace has declared June 20, 2011 a special non-working holiday to commemorate the 150th birthday of our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal.
As Proclamation No. 154 issued by Malacañang on April 26, 2011 says:
WHEREAS, to give all Filipinos the opportunity to commemorate Rizal’s patriotic deeds and sacrifices for the country, rekindle their admiration and respect for him, and to celebrate this milestone with appropriate ceremonies, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) requested that Monday, June 20, 2011, be declared as special non-working holiday instead of June 19, 2011, which falls on a Sunday.

Pinoy Adventurista says: We haven't had a long weekend for quite some time now. This is an opportunity for us to travel, explore and discover our country. For me, I've already bought a ticket from Cebu Pacific's seat sale last February. I'm going to Coron Palawan with some friends. This means I will have a spare vacation leave that I can use in my other travels. Hahaha!!! Thanks to Pnoy!
