Each new year paves the way for more annual leaves to be wisely used up. Considering how most are granted with a rough estimate of 14 days per year, it makes complete sense to apply for them strategically.

Using the scheduled 2019 public holidays as a guide, here’s a rough plan that you can opt for in order to obtain 11 long weekends this year.

Here’s a complete breakdown:

For Thaipusam in January, you won’t even need to use up your leave days as you’ll already be granted 3 days of break by virtue of Thaipusam falling on a Friday.

Those working in KL can enjoy the Federal Territory holiday. But for an even better deal, why not apply for leave the day before so you can enjoy a luxurious 4-day weekend?

The CNY break in February already grants you 2 days off. But for those who are looking to spend even more time with their family, they can apply for leave on February 4th for 4 days off.

May is the month of extra long weekends if you’re wise enough to plan ahead. Taking May 2nd, 3rd, 23rd and 24th off will give you 3 long weekends in total!

The Hari Raya break this year falls on June 5th and 6th, but taking the 7th off will grant you 5 long days of break in total.

In the month of August, Hari Raya Haji falls on the 11th and 12th. Hence, those taking off on the 9th will get 4 days off.

September will have you enjoying 2 long weekends without the need to apply for any leave days at all.

Finally, in December, applying for leave on the 26th and 27th will grant you a long Christmas break to spend time with the family and to reflect on the new year.
