use DateTime;

  $dt = DateTime->new(
      year       => 1964,
      month      => 10,
      day        => 16,
      hour       => 16,
      minute     => 12,
      second     => 47,
      nanosecond => 500000000,
      time_zone  => 'Asia/Taipei',
  );

$dt->add(hours => 5)->subtract(minutes => 12)->subtract(seconds => 15);
