you get to celebrate your birthday longer.
this applies to people living in the north-western hemisphere of the globe that were born in the orient.
considering the application of the daylight savings time (DST), there is a 15-hour time difference between the philippines and california.
the philippine timezone is PST (UTC+8) while the state of california belongs to the pacific timezone (UTC-8).
to all my dear friends miles away from the philippines who greeted me 15 hours earlier, thank you very much. this has been the longest birthday hours that i have so far. thank you all!
