Malaysia's Human Resources Ministry has announced that Monday, September 10, 2018, would be a replacement non-working public holiday in Malaysia to celebrate the Agong's birthday, which falls on Sunday in 2018.
The aforementioned announcement that Monday, September 10, 2018, would be a non-working public holiday in Malaysia to celebrate the Agong's birthday, which falls on Sunday in 2018, follows last year's changes to the date of the public holiday in Malaysia for the official birthday of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V (2017-08-22, 2017-07-13 and 2017-04-29).
In any case ("The replacement public holiday does not apply to the four states of Kedah, Kelantan, Johor and Terengganu, where Sunday is usually a working day. Hence, no replacement is necessary for these states, which will be enjoying this Sunday as a public holiday to celebrate the occasion"), it does not apply to Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu, where the weekend has traditionally been observed on Friday/Saturday, joined by Johor, a few years ago (2013-11-23).
