Semalam (25/3/2012) baba kata kita kena cepatkan jam 1 jam ke hadapan. Saya pelik. kenapa perlu cepatkan? Bukan ke masa itu tetap? Tiba tiba jam 9.00 jadi pukul 10.00 pagi. Saya lihat semua jam elektronik bertukar 1 jam ke hadapan. Peliknya…

Oh rupanya di UK, mereka akan menukar waktu jam dua kali setiap tahun.

  • Hari Ahad terakhir pada bulan Mac, 1 jam ditambah pada waktu biasa dan ianya dipanggil British Summer Time (BST).
  • hari Ahad terakhir pada bulan Oktober, 1 jam ditolak dari waktu biasa dan ianya sama dengan Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

When do the clocks change in the UK?

March 2012

The UK Clocks moved forward one hour on

Sunday 25 March 01:00 GMT (02:00 BST)

October 2012

Clocks move backwards one hour.

Sunday 28 October 02:00 BST** (01:00 GMT )

**As the UK will be on BST (British Summer Time), we will change our clocks at 2 am on Sunday 31 October.

Future dates

2013: the Sundays of 31 March and 27 October
2014: the Sundays of 30 March and 26 October
2015: the Sundays of 29 March and 25 October
2016: the Sundays of 27 March and 30 October

Syukur pada Allah, saya jahil tentang ini, suami beri panduan. Berikut merupakan taburan negara di dunia yang mengamalkan Daylight Saving Time (DST).

World map. Europe, Russia, most of North America, parts of southern South America and southern Australia, and a few other places use DST. Most of equatorial Africa and a few other places near the equator have never used DST. The rest of the land mass is marked as formerly using DST.

Although not used by most of the world’s countries, daylight saving time is common in the Northern Hemisphere’s northern latitudes.

  Blue colour=DST observed
  Orange colour=DST no longer observed
  Red colour=DST never observed
Kenapa perlu pada penambahan jam ini? Boleh baca di http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
Malaysia dan Arab Saudi tidak mengamalkan DST ini. Patut saya rasa jakun semacam. Tapi orang kaki bola Premier League mesti pakar bab ini.
