Vesak Day is not a Chinese public holiday. It is a Buddhist public holiday.

The aliens we import here don't celebrate thaipusam. Too bad.

If the aliens here celebrate by now they pressure the govt to give them the holiday liao.
This.

But they should've included Thaipusam, not because of those ceca. One more holiday is nice.

is like not all chinese celebrate vesak day

Vesak day is actually not a"chinese" holiday. Its indians.

Ever race is designated 2 days.

Chinese - cny 2 days
Malay - hari raya puasa/haji.
Indians - vesak/deepavali.
Angmoh/euraisans - good friday/christmas.

The remaining 3 are new year, labourday and national day

This young punk obviously don't know the rationale behind the selection of Public Holidays.

backside sit there, keep listening to those stupid boomers about "back in my day". Then got soooooo "woke" and "inspired" to make him/her write this article because his/her boomer is OLD and OLD PEOPLE NEED TO BE RESPECTED AND INPUTS TO BE VALUED!!!!

this is what happens when you put the efforts of a few older folks who worked for the nation and raised the whole batch onto a pedestal. Even the useless ones would think they are "entitled" to such greatness.
