DST ended. 5pm like midnight.

 
Daylight saving time (DST) is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.

November 6, 2011 was the first time I had to stare at the time on my laptop and phone to witness how it was adjusted backward one hour (1.59am --> 1.00am) then adjusted all watches and clocks in the house accordingly. My Facebook and Twitter were flooded by feeds about DST by Malaysian students fresh in USA. So jakun lah.

And now we are entering the dark period of 5pm like midnight.


It's pretty depressing although I like night time. It's like... the illusion of "hoi it's late already!" bugs you to start doing your homework 4 hours earlier than usual. And you also start feeling sleepy when it's just dinner time, if you sleep earlier it means you're sleeping more because you most probably won't wake up earlier and even if you do you will go back to sleep after you brush your teeth. Then you have less time awake. See the problem now?

Anyway the effect never really impacted me and the illusion is confirmed gone after I get used to it. Heh.
