Because of President Arroyo's Proclamation 1699, Holy Week this 2009 would most likely prove to be even gayer than usual. April 9 and April 10 are Maundy Thursday and Good Friday respectively and thus there will be no work on those days, while Araw ng Kagitingan, which normally falls on April 9, has been moved to April 6, the nearest Monday, as part of Arroyo's holiday economics. This means that there will be two adjacent long weekends and I'm quite sure many people will take the remaining Tuesday and Wednesday off and get a wonderful nine-day vacation.
It's quite obvious that many (straight) people will go to Boracay during this time and that gay people will hie off to Puerto Galera. (Head on over to my simple Puerto Galera guide for details.) I'm blogging about this early on so that you can already plan your summer getaways (make reservations, file your leaves, save up, go to the gym, etc.).
This also means that the beaches might be extra crowded so if you want to go to Puerto Galera, I suggest that you go during the April 4–6 weekend instead of the main weekend. I predict that the crowds will be lighter but it will still be gay enough that there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and play with hot guys. Hehehe.
