Public Holidays, Events & Festival in Malaysia 2017

A common Malaysia calendar has 4 year system written on it, the regular date written in big text, the Islam date in small text at upper-right, the Tamil date in small text at lower-right, and the Chinese date in vertical at left. I preserve all 4 calendars in this post, but substituting them with month numbers instead of the real month name. Format used in Malaysia is always dd/mm so don't confuse if you're from other country which uses mm/dd.

A typical Malaysian calendar.
