We’re already on the cusp of July! August is less than 24 hours away!
So, earlier this month Niejan and Andina nominated me for blog awards thingy. While i’m trying to make KaramelKinema to be strictly about movies and things around it (trying not to cross to the personal blog kinda thing), i guess this kind of post will be a nice break from the things you found here :)
