Taiyou No Uta


A girl who can only live at night and a high school student who loves to surf as the sun rises...
The two had nothing in common...

Kaoru Amane, 16 years old, did not attend school but instead sang herself away every night after dark at a square in front of a train station with a guitar in her hands. She led a lifestyle opposite the norm, sleeping during the day and active at night. Kaoru was suffering from xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), an illness, which also might be described as the allergy to the sun, and was not allowed to be exposed to sunlight. The only motivation in her life was singing, which also was the only connection to the outside world.
One day, an incident drastically changes her life...

Kaoru returns home at 4:00 am, before sunrise. Outside her room window, she spots a high school student standing with a surf board in his hands. It becomes her routine to watch him and his friends come and go to the ocean every morning, before going to sleep.

Their destined encounter takes place during the few hours before the break of day, drawing together two individuals that would have never met in daylight. However, Koji does not know about her illness. The two rapidly fall for one another and continues to meet in the city at night. Then one day, an incident leads Koji to learn of Kaoru's illness. Kaoru gives up her first love telling herself that, "I shouldn't have allowed myself to dream of a happy life. I am not normal after all." She even gives up singing. Koji seeing Kaoru at such a state encourages her by suggesting, "Let's meet only at night," and comes up with a brilliant present for her.

She had been leading a life carefully placing herself beyond the reach of harm, with no intent to pursue a dream. However, Koji had shone a light on her heart making her want to sing once again.
However, her illness which has quietly progressed, has started to pressure her nerve system, keeping her from playing the guitar at her will...

Windows VISTA VS Mac OS X

WOW!!!! VISTA!!! Loyal Microsoft Windows consumers have been anticipating this new version of Windows. Usually, Microsoft will release their a new operating system (eg. Win98, WinXP) almost every year. Since their release of Windows XP, they kinda stopped the tradition of creating a new operating system every year. Since then, they have concentrated on other things like XBox.
Ok ok ok, so the release of Windows XP was somewhere in 2000 - 2001.

Windows Vista Beta was released to die-hard fans and technicians for an 1GB plus download from the website in 2006. Who's crazy enough to download that with the speed Streamyx (in Malaysia) has to offer for home users, aaahhh... You really are crazy!! Now, Windows Vista is officially released to the public last month.
For Windows users who actually cared about the Macintosh operating system, you will find that there's a lot of similarities in both of this operating system. The videos below will explain everything for you.

CCS Charity Visit

Hey hey hey, FFX Madman is back on blogging baby!!! Haven't been updating for a while... TooooooooOoooooo lazy... haaha...

This post is especially for a charity visit which was help yesterday, March 18th 2007 to the General Hospital. We actually went there to visit a cancer patient, Wendy Alexander. She's sooOooooooOOooo young, only 14 years old. She has a lot of things ahead of her. Will she experience her graduation day? Will she experience her first true love?? Will she experience her first wedding?? Will she experience her first baby?? Will she??? Scientifically, it's impossible but faith can do a lot of powerful things and that is the only weapon she and her family got against her disease.

Besides her, we visit an Iban lady which I do not know the name. I don't even know what's wrong with her!! She's just soooo thin. Madam Jenny, our teacher-in-charge, expressed a deep affection for her. Oookk... Don't think badly now... We just prayed over her!! Adrian did it professionally. Haha... future Brother/Priest maybe...
