From the Philippine Star Editorial - About Time
Tardiness is not just an act of discourtesy but also inefficient time management.
From the DOST Press Release:
Support Juan Time and be punctual in all your appointments!
“PST, the country’s official time, sets only one common time in the archipelago’s more than 7,100 islands,” DOST Sec. Mario Montejo says. “Juan Time reminds Filipinos that keeping to the PST avoids the difficulties of having confusing, unsynchronized time.”
“With Juan Time, Filipino time will come to mean ‘on time’ and no longer late,” Montejo added.
