Q: What time is it?!

I've just woken up and I'm so confused and so jet lagged, I feel like i was asleep for ages but I think I probably wasn't, my phone says that it's one time and my computer says another time and I don't know which one is Ireland and which one is China or if they're am or pm! Ugh! Help!

The time zones in China change twice during the Moon Festival. It's pretty complicated, but right now it's 4:15 in the morning, and this time tomorrow it will be some time in the afternoon. Whether this refers to Chinese or Irish time is, however, dependent on whether your plane approached from the East (if it approached from the West, you will be 1 day ahead, and will have to wait a bit longer for these changes to take place). Assuming you landed in Beijing or HK, you probably came from the East, so it'll be easy to figure out. If you look outside and it's completely dark, that's because the Moon Festival always coincides with an eclipse.

Do people get jet lag coming from Europe? I go to China and can't sleep at night and won't sleep during the day for a few weeks. I go back to Canada and I can't get enough sleep for 3 weeks.

Readjust your current position on your laptop. Open 'Time and Date' and move your Time Zone to 'Chinaman&girl' position.

Then, puter will show you present time and date (+8 hours).

'No surrender' can be used instead 'Good morning' or "Good afternoon'. It's general greeting used by Irish or Scottish (Celtic fans) doesn't matter the time of the day.

American once went for visit in Mexico. He didn't have watch, and was walking around the city in siesta time, looking for somebody who could tell him what time is it.

There's usually nobody around in that time in Mexico.

So, dude walks around, and find Mexican sleeping on the floor, covered with big sombrero. Beside him was donkey (standing), tied-up for a pole.surprise

 

American kicks the boot of sleepy Mexican, who lifts up his sombrero a bit and say: 'What do you want?'

American: 'Do you know, what time is it?

Mexican puts open hand on the donkey balls, and say: 'It's quarter past 2', and fell asleep again.

American kicks the boot of Mexican again, and asks: 'How can you tell the time in Mexico just by touching up the donkey's balls?'

Mexican: No, I lift it up (the donkey's balls) just to see on the church tower.

Isn't it always "beer o'clock?"?

 

 

(though, for the record, I don't drink beer...)

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
