Year 2009 calendar with
Malaysia Public Holidays for your
vacation guide to Cameron Highlands

It's that time of the year again, holiday season is already on going, people preparing to take a vacation and looking around for a travel destination, trying to finish up their available annual leave, and Christmas and New Year is just around the corner!

It's also the time of the year when my company is distributing calendars to our valued long term customers, running to and fro to meet up with them to catch up on building relationship and find out how things are going. So likewise for my online readers I decided to provide a simple virtual Year 2009 Calendar which you could use for planning your Year 2009 vacation schedule.

As usual, most people including yours truly only have limited annual leave, and we would usually eye those long weekends and add a day or two from our annual leave to make a super long weekend. Unfortunately many people have the same idea and the end result is a congested getaway vacation. Sometimes that is the only available time due to work and family commitment as well as children who has to attend school and cannot afford to skip classes. However if you are able to breakaway from this limitation then planning a holiday on an off peak period may just be the best way to extract the most from a relaxing vacation.

Anyway how you guys and gals will plan your schedule is entirely in your hands. What I provide is just the information for you to plan the perfect getaway as best as possible.

So without much ado, I bid you au revoir!
