Happy Thaipusam, Happy Holiday!!

For you guys who worked in KL, it must be very excited when our prime minister annouced Thaipusam as a public holiday for Wilayah Persekutuan. From this year onwards, you guys will have another day off, happy right? As for me, I worked in Selangor, so it makes no difference to me. I remembered i heard someone mentioned before saying Selangor got more holidays than KL, so now both of them are equal right, after declaring Thaipusam as a public holiday for KL?

Talking about Thaipusam, there's this incident happened when I was still working in my 2nd comp which is in Selangor. I got so angry with my company when the lady boss told us Thaipusam is not a public holiday for us. Why not? Every company in Selangor is not working, why us? I was so angry until I called the labour office to ask izzit necessary for company in Selangor give us the holiday. And guess what, the labour office ppl told me Thaipusam is not a compulsory holiday. In other words, company in Selangor can still opt NOT to give their employee the day off. Argggg... but now, i guess it's compulsory lar... :p

Happy Holidays to you guys, Happy Thaipusam!!
