Parliament dissolved! Got holiday or not?

NEWS FLASH!

Just heard on the radio. Parliament is dissolved.

That means election is round the corner, probably int he first week of May.

Not that it affects me as it's a walk-over in my constitiency but it's still exciting.

Called up hubby to tell him the news.

Like any typical Singaporean, he said: "Wonder when is the election. Will there be holiday?"

Knowing the ever productive Singapore government, it will probably be on a Saturday, to minimise work disruption.


Wait a minute... my husband isn't a Singaporean leh....

Oh no! He's been infected!

*EDIT*

I just heard. Election is on 6th May. A Saturday. Our government is so predictable.
