Finally, after a month or so of not posting anything over here, I am happy to say that The Kat’s Cafe is up and running again!
During the downtime, I managed to tweak some parts of my blog. I changed its appearance, and organized my categories and tags as best as I could, and organized things so that my sidebar could reflect the categories, and my other social media widgets.
Aside from the usual, I decided to add the Goodreads widget as I am currently doing the 50 Book Challenge this year, and I will probably sign up for a Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Challenge sometime this week as well. I will be using that to monitor my progress, and I will be putting up Book Reviews depending on which challenge it is part of.
As I usually keep a daily and weekly schedule of show air dates and times that it airs locally and on streaming sites accessible here in the Philippines, I decided to share it with all of you, and in particular, to those who live in the Philippines. It is called “Daily Menu”, and it changes everyday, depending on what is airing on that particular day. For the streaming sites such as Netflix and VIU.com (for Asian dramas), I took note of when new episodes or when a particular series is dropped and becomes available for streaming. However, it is not a perfect list, so if there are any shows that you feel need to be added to the list, as long as it is airing legally and locally, I’d love to add it to my daily TV schedule, as long as it is not a variety show.
During the downtime, I was able to stock up on some shows on Netflix, and I also watched a couple of new movies that I cannot wait to share with you all. I also attended a special screening with a q & a with the director of “Saving Sally”, a Filipino animated and live-action hybrid film that was part of last year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), and will be sharing that experience with you all sometime near Valentine’s Day.
Also, as the Oscars is happening at the end of the month, I will be doing a Live Tweet of the event on that day, and you are welcome to join me as we celebrate the best of Hollywood this past year. Over here, on HBO Asia on Feb. 27, 2017, Monday, the Red Carpet will begin at around 7AM, and the ceremony will probably be around 8AM.
Aside from these things, I will still continue to post reviews per season of old shows that I am watching for the first time, as well as hosting rewatch sessions of shows that I have already seen, such as “Battlestar Galactica”, and sometime later this year, in preparation for the new “Star Trek” television show, I might revisit the older shows, and maybe, finally, start on watching the movies.
Who do you think will win this year? Who are you betting on to win? Let me know in the comments below! As for me, I’m really hoping that “Kubo and the Two Strings”, “Zootopia” and Casey Affleck go home with awards.
Also, feel free to recommend tv shows, books, comic books, movies, and animated (both American and Asian) shows, for me to watch, as I’m always eager to expand my always growing lists of things to watch and read. You can also tell me what you are excited for when it comes to those things as well. All you need to do is just leave a comment below!
2017 will be such an exciting year, and I cannot wait to share all of these things with you!
