Pinoys in Hong Kong will be having 5 days (long weekend) holidays starting tomorrow Friday, April 3 until Tuesday, April 7, 2015. During these days, we will be having Holy Week services on most Catholic churches and tonight, we celebrate Holy Thursday when Jesus Christ had his Last Supper with his 12 Disciples and washed their feet.
