March 2016 Holidays (Philippines)

Heads up for advanced planning!

It has been declared by Malacanang last August 2015 that the REGULAR holiday for the Holy Week this 2016 would be:

  • March 24, 2016 – Maundy Thursday
  • March 25, 2016 – Good Friday

And how lucky I am with our company that we don’t have to go to work until Monday, March 28 because our practice is to off set Black Saturday holiday to Monday. You may want to check your company’s policy, too! 🙂

However, if you’ll be working on regular holidays like these, here’s how to compute your pay:

But the best move for this coming holiday is to kneel down and pray. Let’s thank God for our blessings with our family.

That ITCHY bitchy feeling

Have you ever tried putting an X-mark with your fingernails on a mosquito bite? Be honest! Hahaha!

 

We automatically scratch our skin when we feel that killer itchiness…even if we didn’t like to! Relate? I know! Scratching gives us a temporary relief from it.

How does scratching temporarily relieves an itch?

▶ Scratching blocks nerve cells from sending information to the brain that a certain part of our body/skin feels itchy.

 

Home remedies:

▶Oatmeal bath. Oatmeals contains natural chemicals that eases inflammation/itchiness.

▶Keep yourself cool. Heat and sweat makes that itchy part MORE itchy. Put a cold compress or take a cool bath.

 

💡 Did you know…

It is not advisable to scratch itchy skin. That instant and temporary relief actually causes the itchiness to worsen and aggravate inflamed skin.
