Loss of holidays
One of the biggest loss of our relocation is the loss of public holidays here.

One might hear quite often that Americans work the hardest, or that USA is the hardest working country. If you look at how some of the folks work, you know that aint true.

One possible reason that they think that way is that the actual number of public holidays is really low!

According to my company, i am entitled to 8 public holidays, and two additional days that i can choose as day offs.

Come on!!! Where's Hari Raya (x2), Deepavali? Chinese New Year?? Ok.. these are understandable.

But but but..... not even GOOD FRIDAY?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally agree with the few public holidays. That was something I couldn't stop lamenting, even now. And I now truly appreciate the many holidays in Spore.
