Juan time: Philippine standard time

It did not get much mileage but the sometime in the past the Philippines launched Juan Time, a campaign to promote the value of being on time, the direct opposite of the penchant to be late we commonly call Filipino time. The campaign involved the setting up of an online reference for the correct Philippine Standard Time (PST) meant to encourage Filipinos to value time more and to be punctual. To this day, the online service remains to be the most authoritative reference of the correct Philippine time. You may check it at kidlat.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/ourtime.shtml.
