Holidaysssss!

2008 is merely two weeks old, and most of the fiesta/holiday loving filipinos returned from our vacations with a waistline an inch wider and the weighing scale showing what we've eaten, or should i say, over-indulged ourselves with, here are more reasons to be merry and bright, but please, minus the fat!

Republic Act No. 9492 or the Act Rationalizing the Celebration of National Holidays in the Philippines was signed January 2007, and the result? LONG WEEKENDS!!!!!
