Sayonara, Fat Detective! Hello Samurai Drama!

I’m sad The Fat Detective is ending. The last episode airs this Sunday, October 6th at 9pm. I will miss this drama about loveable and competent Detective Hanazawa, who proves week after week that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. I’ll also miss seeing the delicious foods he devours each week.

But there is a new drama to look forward to. Starting the following Sunday, October 13th, we will be airing a samurai drama titled The Inner Chamber. It’s a role reversal drama set in the Edo period. I say role reversal because in this drama, a woman becomes Shogun, and is served by 3,000 handsome male attendants. It’s a drama filled with love, intrigue, and jealousies. Don’t miss it!

Ja, ne!

Launch of Kababayan Today at the Philippine Consulate

The Philippine Consulate General in Honolulu wishes to invite the Filipino-American community in Hawaii to a reception celebrating the launch of KABABAYAN TODAY on KIKU-TV on 3 October 2013 (Thursday) at 6:00 pm at the Philippine Consulate. KABABAYAN TODAY is America’s first and only locally-produced talk show for and about the Filipinos.

Kababayan Today (formerly Kababayan L.A.) celebrated its 7th anniversary in April 2013, making it the longest-running Filipino talk show outside the Philippines. It broadcasts over the air in Southern California, reaching 6.3 million households on LA 18, KSCI-TV. In May of this year, Kababayan Today began broadcasting daily on KIKU-TV in Hawaii. KIKU-TV broadcasts on Channel 20 and on Oceanic Cable Channel 9. Worldwide, it is available at www.youtube.com/kababayanla18.

Ms. Jannelle So, host and producer of Kababayan Today, will be visiting Honolulu from 3 to 7 October 2013 to reach out to our kababayans in Hawaii, meet and establish relationships with the Filipino-American community, business organizations and media; film special interest stories and features around Hawaii; and ask for story submissions and pitches on what our kababayans want to see on the program.
