that's because next week will practically be a week-long holiday. there's no work on oct 31-nov 1 (halloween is a holiday?), back to work nov 1-2 (isn't nov 2 the real araw ng patay?), and no work again on nov 4 (we don't know why, but why argue?). so most people are going on holiday starting oct 29. but the fash pack is staying put, so we can report any fashionable goings-on in the city during those dead days.
