Schedule Dragon Boat practice at 8:00 not 8:30 because most of the people in our team are running on Asian time.

Get the Asian Time mug.
The phenomenon of adding 30 minutes to the local (Zulu) time of the observer's location.
During event planning, care must be taken to analyze each party's inherent participation in said phenomenon, adjusting the allotted preset time (+30 minutes) to vary according to transportation, clothing, hygiene, and facial appearance preparations. This can affect arrival times to an event by as much as +45 or reduce the Asian Time to only +15, but never eliminate it.
The primary victim of this phenomenon must consider the implications of Asian Time and the effects of his/her decisions.
We've said to meet up at the cafe at 8am, but I'm guessing they will show up at 0830 because they run on Asian Time.
