Aha! we still have work today but most people are on a holiday mode already. The cafeteria is swarmed with people, employees and their kids. All ATM Machines have blockbuster lines waiting for their turn to be able to withdraw money! Gee... I feel that everyone's up to something and well everyone is in a rush. Its going to be a 4 day Holiday in the country starting tomorrow until All Saints day on Nov 1 and i guess that is why people are in a rush today. :D he he When was the last time you felt this kind of rush around you? How'd you dealt with it? he he

For me the last time was during the Holy Week. And i am indeed excited of having a long vacation, since starting tomorrow , we have no Saturday - half day reporting to work anymore. Our company have decided to compressed working hour during the weekdays. I already have plans of what to do for each day of those 4 days vacation.

Oh that is great. how was your vacation, by the way? I think you are correct when you said the last time we had such huge commotion was during the holy week. people crammed to wherever they should be going and well, i think that we all know why holidays are such a "rush" :D

Well, people who lives in the city, considers it a "rush" because they have to "rush" to buy their tickets in going to their provinces, lest they will not be able to get one anymore. Sometimes, travelling alone, takes a lot of time for those people. Then , when they go back to the city, they again have to "rush". So, this long weekends and holidays is an opportunity for the to "rush" . I feel lucky, that we don't have to rush, because we are already here in the province.

No holidays made me rushed and tensed nowadays except Christmas and New Years Day *lol... Holidays (except the 2) 'though it'll gonna be a long weekend will be just a rest day for us... having my husband working so hard 5 days a week, doing overtimes at home... and me doing hard task being a fulltime mom... It will be just a normal day to us to spend... it will just a day to go out of town to hear mass, as we used to do. Dine out as we likely doing. Malling as oftentimes we do. The last time I freely celebrating all holidays was during my single days *lol... No regret 'though... As times goes on... as my maturity goes up... as my family grows big... my priority change. And I love the way my priority is changing! The finding, buying gifts to my relatives and friends, of course priority are my husband and kids... and personally wrapping it for them, I love to do that my own! Thinking what food to prepare in that event that they will surely love and appreciate,.. what outfit for my family to wear,... It's the long awaited preparation for the event that make me rushed... The countdown makes me tensed *lol We're celebrating Chrismas And New Year's day in my husbands birthplace in Bulacan. It's been their family reunion eversince and we find it a must celebrated day really! It's coming soon... rush and tense is coming to my nerves now! I love it!

i always felt rush in special holiday like Christmas and New Year and specially all saints day and all souls day like now its November 1 its a start of the holiday and the number coding is suspended so i can feel the rush and heavy traffic is going to happen that's for sure, and the people around the city are times 3 because its payday yesterday. that's why the lines in the ATM booth will be explode, be responsible to your belongings the bad guys are also around the city so be careful, stay calm and quiet everything will be alright. don't forget pray to your love ones.

Hi Chiyosan! I was at the road last Friday and there was a heavy traffic because a lot of people are going back to their provinces. Even though many people went home earlier and probably took a half day at work, their numbers weren't enough to lessen the people going home on a rush hour. People are really excited to go home.

i am kind of jealous because everyone is excited to go home to their provinces and be with their families this weekend but I will be staying here in the city because we have to work and we were not able to get a day of because the hospital still needs to be operational these days.

When it's going to have a celebration or holiday of course. There we could see everyone in a rush. It looks like everyone is going to do something in a hurry. I like to see such situation. I enjoyed it so much when we are together rushing to complete the work.(^^)
