when will sg have holiday for filipinos? since circlelife ads now indicate filipino is one of the main race in sg.

Any other or mixed ethnicity residents have 3 days too. New year, labour day and national day. On top of that the other 8 public holidays they can lepak too.

this is a good idea.

we should not be racist towards our japanese, korean, vietnamese, thai friends.

SG should adopt their holidays to show the world we are not a racist country.
For work purposes, my calendar has public holidays for a number of countries. I can say pretty much almost everyday some place has a holiday. :s13:

So you feel it's fine to jump from the current 11 days to 15 days?

Actually dont need extra holiday for Chinese. Just gave back the 1 day holiday back to the 3 minority races.

They want 2 more public holidays also I am not complaining. We can have one extra PH for local Indians and one PH for CECA. Everyone happy and Shan cannot say we are racist or Xenophon because the government’s beloved CECAs will have their own PH like they wanted.

Should give it as a public holiday. Even Malaysia sets it as a PH

Does CECA celebrate this?

typically not (they might not even know of it unless they are from tamil nadu). deepavali (or diwali), dassera holi etc are bigger and more widely celebrated. you can think of it like using sugar cane to pray on 7th day? of CNY, only the hokkiens have it, most Chinese will not know of it.

Please change the name to Diwali. more ATAS.
Removed as holiday no need change

Just like Vesak dun change to weisai day.

in fact it might be good to change to lunar new year in the same spirit of protecting local identity

Then just add back Thaipusam lah.

I don't think many people will care that means the Indians have 3 public holiday to them and other races only got 2.

What difference does it make since everybody all get the day off on Public Holiday anyway.

Thaipusam is a loud druuming crowded affair that continues non stop 24/7 through the night, many citizens were unable sleep well with the constant drumming and weird hours in residential city sg , seriously the authorities need consider restrict it better
