TCP: One Hour Photo

This week’s TCP theme features the versatile actor Robin Williams. I picked One Hour Photo for my entry. Williams portrays an offbeat character in this movie which is a far cry from the usual role he usually play. Find out more about this movie through this storyline I borrowed from


Middle aged Sy Parrish works as a technician at a one hour photo lab located in a SavMart store in a suburban mall. Sy is a lonely man, never having had any friends. He knows much about his customers through the photographs they have developed. But he knows more about the Yorkin family – specifically Nina Yorkin and her adolescent son Jake Yorkin, the two in the family who drop off and pick up the family’s photofinishing – than anyone else, the family about who he is obsessed. Nina’s husband, Will Yorkin, is incidental to his obsession since Sy has only seen him in photographs. Sy’s obsession includes fantasizing about being their favorite “Uncle Sy”. He has even been making an extra set of prints for himself of all of their photographs since Jake was a newborn. After an incident at work and after Sy finds out more about the family through a set of photographs, he decides to right the injustices he sees in the only way he knows how. His actions demonstrate his true mental state. Written by Huggo

A pair of UGG boots for me

I’m expecting a call from my sister this weekend. She asked me the last time we talk if I want something for Christmas. I told her not to bother because I know she needs the money more than I do. But if she would insist a pair of ugg boots will be fine. 😀 I used to wear a locally manufactured boots when I was working. My old pair doesn’t fit anymore. I remember wearing them on formal occasions or coverage.

One of my former officemates who resides in Canada owns more than a pair of ugg boots. She said they are comfortable on her feet and she wears them during winter and even summer. My officemate said her boots never go out of style she can pair them with formal or casual wear.

If my sister can afford to buy a pair for me, I would request a mini boots. But if my request is too pricey for her, it’s ok. She doesn’t have to worry about me what is important is that she’ll come home safe and be with her kids on Christmas Day. 🙂

LP: Makapal (Thick)


Guhit ito ng aking anak na si Naomi. Realism daw ang tawag sa ganitong uri ng drowing.

Gaya  ng ibang mga ka-LP nahirapan din akong magisip ng lahok para sa araw na ito. Makapal ang tema. Naalala ko hindi ko pa naipo-post ang drowing na ito. Ito ang pinakabagong drowing ng aking 13 anyos na anak. Paborito niyang artist si Michael Jackson kaya naman madalas rin niya itong iguhit.

Makapal at maitim ang buhok ni Michael Jackson kaya naman kinapalan din ng aking anak ang shading sa buhok nito.

Ito ang aking lahok. Bisitahin ang ibang pang lahok sa Litratong Pinoy.

Maligayang Huwe-best!
