Happy New Year, beach bums!
You’re probably still enjoying the Christmas break. You probably still can’t believe that you would be going back to work in a few days. But there’s no need to worry. If there’s one thing we like about working in the Philippines, it’s that we have so many holidays!
Make the most out of your break and plan the most awesome trip as early as now, while low-cost carriers like Cebu Pacific and AirAsia still have a number of PROMO SEATS on SALE!
Make 2014 a year to remember by strategically filing your leave of absence and extending your weekends!
