There are 3 holidays in the Philippines this week:

– Today (Oct 30) is Election Day. If your OFS didn’t work today (you didn’t get a report from them), this is why.

I’ve talked about voting in the past, but just as a reminder, lines to vote in the Philippines are VERY long.

– Thursday and Friday are All Saint’s Day and All Souls’ Day.
While these two days aren’t required days off work, they’re pretty commonly taken.

Given that the only work days are Tuesday and Friday, don’t be surprised if your OFS either doesn’t work or is less productive those days (or the entire week).


PS. have you thought about hiring but you’re not sure?  Do 2 really quick things:
1. Go to and search the skill you’re looking for. “Virtual Assistant” is a great thing to search.
2. Go to and spend the 4 minutes answering your questions.
It’s worth it.
