Hi There, It will be good if

Hi There,

It will be good if you can add the timing in both formats (eg. 2pm = 1400 hrs) so that the info can be very clear. For the Public Holidays surcharge is a bit confusing. Stated 6pm (eve of PH) to 12am (PH) actually means 6pm to 0000hrs on PH to pay the S$1.00 surcharge ? Can please respond ?
