June 19, 2010 | Post Comment   

Today, in TheStar online papers, the state of Penang announced July 7 as a public holiday to to commemorate the anniversary of the inscription of George Town as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2008.

Penang state of Malaysia already has 17 days for public holiday, now it is 18 days. I believed it is the state with the most public holidays. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Ooh, added another Malaysia Day on Sept 16, now it is 19 days.

1. New Year – 1st Jan
2. Chinese Lunar New Year – 2 days, depend on the Chinese Lunar Calendar
3. Thaipusam
4. Prophet Muhammad Birthday
5. Labour Day – 1st May
6. Wesak Day
7. Malaysia King Birthday – 1st Sat of June
8. Penang Governor Birthday – 11th July
9. Malaysia National Day – 31st August
10. Nuzul Al-Quran Day
11. Hari Raya Puasa (*) – 2 days
12. Malaysia Day – 16th Sept
13. Deepavali (*)
14. Hari Raya Haji (*)
15. Awal Muharram (Maal Hijrah)
16. Christmas – 25th December

Of cause, some companies do not have all public holidays as off days, they limit it to a fixed number of off days. I wonder whether my company accept July 7 and Sept 16 as holidays. I hope there are good news for me
