Summer time...


Please note that all clocks in Great Britain should be FORWARDED an hour today. It's the summer time and this is how people cheat with the day and night time. When we changed to the winter time end of last year, we utterly forgot about it. To top it all up, we then turned up at a friend's place an hour earlier! They were still busy in the kitchen that we had to go back - which was pretty embarassing!
Ergo, it's 7 hours difference between Malaysia and Great Britain.

Yess D. I didn't forget but thought it's next Saturday. It's till my helper told us that we've gone forward that I looked at skynews and realised i've lost an hour already!!

Hello D, ya la, this switching of times forwards backwards betul kelang kabote!
Terok la have to readjust our clocks and watches not to mention some needs a bit of reprogramming i.e. microwave.
"Spring forward, fall backwards" we say here.
We adjusted our clocks 2 weeks ago as some gila fellow in US naik angin suggested North Americans can save more electricity this way. Cheeee!
We are 5 hours behind you in UK and 12 hours behind Malaysia.
Have a nice day, D. UL.

kd,
yeah.. MrD woke up and made a fuss about losing an hour's sleep! HaHaHa..

idham,
no matter how much headache they give me, I just prefer to be the one who's around them all the time - very selfish, eh?

ajzie,
camanelah kids nak tidur awal these days??

13may,

Uncle Lee,
Yeah, thanks for reminding me about that formula: Spring forwards, fall backwards. HeHe..

Hi D, when I was young in school we learned this song. You remember it? Thought maybe you can sing to your kids. My Bahasa suda karat or rusty, can only remember some verses. Best regards, UL. Chan Mali Chan

Di mana dia anak kambing saya?
Anak kambing saya yang makan daun talas
Dimana dia buah hati saya?
Buah hati saya
Bagai telur diku pas

Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Ketipung payung (twice)

Di mana dia anak kambing tuan?
Anak kambing tuan di atas jambatan
Yang mana dia bunga pujaan?
Si bunga tanjung dihujung dahan

Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Ketipung payung (twice)

Kalau nak tahu anak kambing saya
Anak kambing saya di dalam bilik
Kalau nak tahu intan payung saya
Intan payung saya yang kecil lah molek

Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Ketipung payung (twice)

Di mana dia anak kambing tuan
Anak kambing tuan yang bulunya kuning
Yang mana dia buah hati tuan?
Buah hati tuan yang putih lah kuning

Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Chan mali chan
Ketipung payung (twice)
