My country, Malaysia has an exuberant celebration of festivals, customs, traditions and a tempting array of multicultural cuisines due to its diverse people with a varied mix of races, culture and religions.

Not surprisingly, it’s also unique in the great number of declared public holidays to cater for its multi-ethnic and multi-religious people, comprising mainly Malays, Chinese, Indians, Eurasians and the indigenous Orang Asli and the various tribes of Sabah and Sarawak.

Therefore, coincidentally for this year, Deepavali (for the Hindus) will be celebrated on 1st November, and Hari Raya Puasa (for the Muslims) will be celebrated on 3rd. – 4th. November, all three dates are declared public holidays. We just need to apply for 1 day’s annual leave on the 2nd Nov. and report back to office work on the following Monday, 7th. November.

Wow, isn’t this great! Apply 1day’s leave, get 5 extra days!! Happy holidays to me!! and to one and all, especially Hindu and Muslim celebrants!!
