There are a lot of time comes to me to deal with the time. It is not a hard stuff but probably quite confusing at the first few times.

Common case: you receive a time string, and needed to convert it to a Date object for further operation.

Steps:

The confusion comes at when you JUST PRINT the day, no matter what timezone you specified, it will be use the +0000 time zone. However, everything will be ok when you pass the date to the DateComponents and get the mins, hours, day, month from it.
