Tama ka diyan Ver. Kaya kailangan sigurong mangampanya tayo against the Holy Week break. Dahil ako ay malabong makasama kung Holy Week nga ang magiging date. Calling all the Paetenian Parents in North America, send us your votes ASAP baka makahabol pa tayo...

18 people from North America voted for the Holy Week schedule. And here is why: all of them (except for two) don't have children in their entourage. They don't have kids to worry about in their holiday breaks. As expected all those based in the Philippines voted for Holy Week.

Ver, mahirap sigurong manalo ang Fiesta at Christmas dito sa scheduling ng Balik Paete. Unang una, siguradong lahat ng nasa Pilipinas ay Holy week ang pipiliin (doon lang ay talo na tayo). Ikalawa, divided ang mga anti-holy week reunionists between Fiesta and Christmas. I prefer Christmas dahil two weeks lang naman ang pwede kong ibakasyon sa trabaho..

What if we don't count the votes of Philippine-based reunionists in the scheduling, tutal sigurado namang wala silang problema miski na anong time of year natin gawin. Any objection to this motion?
