President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III declared that August 23, which was earlier set as non-working holiday by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (holiday economics), is now a regular working day.
President Aquino restored the commemoration of his father’s death anniversary to its original date, August 21. So August 21 will be a non-working holiday. As for August 30, which is National Heroes’ Day,
MalacaÃ±ang will issue another announcement on whether they will also declare it as a regular working day so don’t plan your vacations just yet Malacanang has ordered that it will be a regular holiday. So in summary:

August 23 – regular working day (may pasok)
August 30 –
