Malaysian Standard Time

What will be your reference when you want to adjust the time on your watch, clock or phone? TV news broadcast? Radio?

Do you know that there's an official Malaysian Standard Time maintained by SIRIM, the National Metrology Laboratory? The time shown is direct from Malaysia’s Caesium atomic clocks in which atomic time scale is established and maintained using five Caesium atomic clocks, two of them are high performance and another three are standard performance. They are compared to one another to detect any abnormality or instability. One of them is designated as the reference clock.
