As every Singaporean should know by now, August 7 is going to be a public holiday this year, due to SG 50, i.e. Singapore’s 50th anniversary as a nation.
A quick check using the mental calculation of dates (Doomsday Algorithm), we can know that August 8 is Saturday, hence August 7 is a Friday. Thus, August 7 to August 10 is indeed a long weekend!
What are Singaporeans doing during the long weekend? Hint: It has something to do with studying. This is a really funny cartoon by Singaporean cartoonist “Chew on it”
