Malacañang Declares May 18 A Non-Working Holiday

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is no secret that Filipinos are avid fans of the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant and that they take the performance of their representative very seriously. Especially owners and workers of salons and beauty parlors, many of whom are members of the LGBT community.

Miss Universe is the LGBT community’s “Super Bowl.”

As we already know, the Philippines’ representative to the international pageant didn’t win nor made it to the top 10, to the dismay of the country’s entire population, especially the salon and parlor workers.

So, in recognition of the big disappointment of the salon and parlor workers, the palace declared May 18 a non-working holiday throughout the country to give them the chance to grieve and to pick themselves up from their frustration.

So if you have scheduled a salon and parlor appointment for May 18, you are advised to call to re-schedule.
