Planet Hollywood

Do you remember eating at Planet Hollywood? It was a big thing in the mid-nineties.

I remember visiting the one at Liat Towers. Planet Hollywood has seen a massive decline. In its heyday, Planet Hollywood has close to a hundred restaurants around the world. Presently, it has eight. It has gone through two bankruptcies, it has seen its share price decline to US$1.00 from US$32.00 in 1999.

The theme restaurant craze was over by 2000.

Sketchbooks

I think I prefer the rougher, grained texture of the Simply Sketchbook from Daler-Rowney over the Monologue sketchbook.

These are, of course, inexpensive sketchbooks.

Of sketchbooks and loose sheets of paper

After completing two pieces in my Monologue sketchbook, I am reminded of why I generally prefer to draw on loose sheets of paper. There is less constriction.

Of the selection at the library

I have come to the realisation that the library has not got most of the books that I want to borrow and read.

Occasionally, I would borrow a forgettable bestseller for a change of pace, otherwise, it simply is limited.

The reference library is better but the books cannot be taken out. Oh well.
I sleep far too late. I need to steel myself and sleep early.

Drawing on a table

I am finally drawing on a proper table instead of drawing while lying in bed like I usually do.

Other than the drone of the aircon, it is silent. Perfect.
Exercise, however minimal, should do me some good, possibly a long walk.
I can't believe how tired I was yesterday. I need a means to fight off this Monday night tiredness.

I need focus.

I did a fair bit today, in fact, quite a lot. However, there is still lots more to do, more useful tasks.

Plants vs Zombies

Plants vs Zombies is a game severely lacking in fun value, lacking tension. It appears to have been designed as something to pass the time, probably perfect for those who want time-wasters on mobiles while on the bus or train.

Plants vs Zombies was a bore when I first played it a long time ago. I played it again for a short while yesterday and it is still a bore.

Little things

I spent a lovely evening with Sweetie at Holland Village. We had dinner at a quiet Italian restaurant that had obviously seen better times in the past.

It was a quiet moment to be cherished.

I ran 5.2 km in the 33.5 degree heat yesterday. I could feel my burning throat late at night. I had breathed through the mouth when I ran.
