I have a badge under way which requires me to post a question each day for five days in a row.

How do I know when the new day has started? (I am in Thailand, so I can't assume it is midnight my time.)

The Stack Exchange day is the UTC day.

The badge you're referring to, Curious, doesn't require that the five days be consecutive -- just that you ask well-received questions on five different days (and some other requirements).
