What is this daylight saving thing?

Can someone please explain to me what the **** is daylight saving thing? I'm coming from a tropical country which is located on the equator so no daylight saving thing for me. Malaysia's time is the same all year round.

No confusion there.

I'm with PayPerPost and a new day starts when its 1pm over in Malaysia. Meaning when we're having lunch in sweet hot Malaysia, the people on the other side of the world are in dreamland.

I can only post 3 sponsored post for PayPerPost. The day is considered over at 1pm Malaysia time. I got up at 12:30 pm this morning and because I didn't post anything yesterday I quickly click on 3 opps and proceeded to post them. So I can start a new bright sunny day at 1pm.

But lo and behold, when I went and check the time, it was already 12:30 am in the other side of the world. Meaning the people in the other side of the world is already in their dreamland one hour ago. 12pm Malaysian time is now 12am other side of the world time.

Where did the other hour go?

Who decided when to minus and plus the time?

George Bush?

Ah... someone please do the honor and explain to me. Or else I'll have to google it up. Boohoo..

daylight saving is to make the day longer during winter.
