This year ain't much vacation-wise compared with last year, but a holiday is a holiday and I'm gonna take what I can get. What did you do last vacation, by the way? I hope you all had a very restful Christmas season. Here is the list of all Philippine holidays for 2009. Do plan your vacation early!
