    In Singapore it’s not a bad thing when a public holiday falls on a weekend. Like today’s Vesak Day (birth of Buddha, lunar cal Apr 15th) it’s a long weekend! ^^

    If a public holiday falls on a Sat we get an extra day credit into our annual leave. If it falls on a Sunday, Monday will be officially a public holiday. Yippy!

    안녕하세요, 효진. I wanted to ask you a question about this video. Is Valentine’s Day and White Day not considered a national holiday? I am just curious because I’ve heard people mention these days and also in videos on TTMIK but they weren’t mentioned in this video. Thanks ^.^

    • Hi 🙂 Valentine’s day and white day are not considered as a national holiday. They are just special days for couples. ^^

    Question: What does 투척 mean in relation to photos?

    • Hi James,
      Thanks for your comment.

      Originally, 투척 means to throw something. Well, sometime some young people use the word when they upload some photos on the internet.

  • I am waiting for more public holidays in 2014.

    Now, I finally understand why the staff at the airport was so nice… He said that because it was a special day, he wouldn’t make us pay the extra-kilos we had in our luggage (we had something like 30kg, while only 20kg were allowed…). And it was the 15th August! Now it does make sense 🙂
