From miyagi.sg: The day we lost half an hour #sgMemory

The year we fol­lowed West Malaysia into GMT +8:00 was the year I started sec­ondary school. We had until then been hap­pily exist­ing at GMT +7:30 when the gov­ern­ment of Malaysia sud­denly decided it would be a really good idea if both West and East Malaysia shared the same time zone. I remem­ber news reports of school chil­dren com­plain­ing that they now had to wait for school buses in the dark — as the sun had not yet risen at that (half) hour — and of some other school chil­dren who turned up half hour late for school on 2 Jan 1982, because some­how, they had not heard about the time zone change.
