WHEREAS, August 20, 2007 (Monday), may be declared as a special (non-working) day while August 21, 2007 (Tuesday) may be declared a working day, provided that all activities and celebrations in observance of “Ninoy Aquino Day” shall remain to be observed on August 21, 2007;
WHEREAS, November 30, 2007, Friday (Bonifacio Day) need not be moved to the nearest Monday as provided under RA No. 9492 because the day falls on a Friday, and thus already serves the purpose of RA No. 9492;
