they closed every Sunday so this public holiday fall in my rest day on Sunday, but Monday sholud be is public holiday to replace Sunday fall in rest day.

My Question, is it they have to pay me tripple if they decide to let us work in Monday or they only have to give me one day additional annual leave to replace my work day in Monday?

Since the National Day is one of the 4 compulsory public holidays, the employer cannot replace another day's leave for employees who are required to work on that day or the replacement day which is Monday. You work you get paid. If you are monthly rated, you will get 2 times more (salary/26) x 2 . If you are daily paid, you will get 3 times your daily rate of pay.
