The accommodation was booked early this year even before my 3 weeks holiday to the Philippines. We left-out the flight bookings as I was not sure that I would be approved of another leave.
I’ve been planning to ask my boss at the start of this month but I was always hesitant. Fortunately, when I ask him tentatively, he said that our Christmas Holiday calendar is looking good that I can take 4 days off.
Next is booking the flights. My tax refund was deposited to my account yesterday. It will pretty much cover our flights and a few more extra for our local transport.
