Daylight saving for WA

Western Australia is introducing daylight saving for a trial period commencing December 3, 2006 for 3 years, with the period shown below:

2 a.m. on 3 December 2006 - 2 a.m. on 25 March 2007
2 a.m. on 28 October 2007 - 2 a.m. on 30 March 2008
2 a.m. on 26 October 2008 - 2 a.m. on 29 March 2009

Note: Both the start and end time are specified in standard time, so the end time is 3 am daylight saving time.

So Perth will be 1 hour ahead of Malaysia during daylight saving time. And there'll be more daylight in the evening.

For people in WA, here's a link to fix up your MS Windows system clock.

Just stumbled upon a post last year that I actually wished for Daylight saving:

It's almost summer now. It's broad daylight by 5:30am! It rather strange to be driving on such a bright day and have very light traffic. W.A should have daylight saving!! Then I can play basketball or go jogging till 8pm and still see. :P
