KUANTAN, Nov 1 – The Pahang government has declared Monday (Nov 3) a public holiday in appreciation of the state team defending their Malaysia Cup title tonight. Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob who made the announcment, however, said officers and teachers involved in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination must disharge their duties as normal.
