Tarsiers, we've got the same early announcement too that our holiday will be on the 20th, but today morning a new announcement came that it will be shifted to 17th...

an early weekend...that means next week will be another rush at work... :/

anyway, have a great holiday everyone! :D

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can & the wisdom to know d difference.
