I ordered the diary shown on this page. What I got is obviously a Chinese copy that loses something in translation and ends up being very confusing in use.
Every month is numbered on the pages - January is 1, Feb is 2 and so on. On the right hand page the month is numbered twice ! So you end up looking for a date, say the 21st and all you see is 1/2/3 etc (twice on the right page) as the actual date is not shown in the obvious place on the page.
