Accoring to the DST record from Hong Kong Observatory (actually, + # it is not [an] observatory, but the official meteorological agency of HK, + # and also serves as the official timing agency), there are some missing + # and incorrect rules. Although the exact switch over time is missing, I + # think 3:30 is correct.
