Boost Your 2010 Holiday Length

Now as you can see above everybody in Singapore can be happy once again because 9 out of 11 public holidays are either at the end or the beginning of the week, giving us great options to take off more with fewer annual leave to burn.

Here are my suggestions for an average of 20 days of annual leave / year:

  • 3 Days following Chinese New Year, 15,16th Feb 2010 – 1 Week
  • 4 Days before Good Friday, 2nd April 2010 – 1 Week
  • 4 Days before Vesak Day, 28th May 2010 – 1 Week
  • 4 Days before Hari Raya Puasa, 10th Sept 2010 – 1 Week
  • 4 Days around Hari Raya Haji, 17th Nov 2010 – 1 Week, because most people will probably not go on vacation during that time
  • 1 Days Left

Like this, you get over 5 Weeks of Holidays for only 4 weeks of annual leave, have fun!
