Cheesecake for daaays: Your Customized Cheesecake

It all started with my mom talking about a cheesecake that her friend was raving about. A few years back, my friends and I were trying to find the best cheesecake made and I ultimately ended up choosing Cake2Go for their delicious Devil's Food Cheesecake. My second choice was Don Limone's which has since closed down like all underrated restaurants in the south. New branches built are far from home now.

A few months ago, this got my interest since it was supposedly customizable cheesecake dipped in ice cream; but all we had to go with was this blurry photo from my mom's friend because she couldn't remember the name of the place.


After days of looking around and asking our friends what could be written in that logo, we were able to find a link to the video where the screenshot was taken. https://www.facebook.com/cassalucoffeeandkitchen/videos/2102256396658825/?hc_location=ufi

Eventually, we found it as "Bakeology" from Cassalu. A far cry from Sambokojin (haha) …

Malunggay Pandesal (Bread) | The Benefits of Malunggay Leaves


A few years ago our kasambahay told me about a new type of pandesal (bread) that she tasted. She said, unlike the typical pandesal, this one was made with malunggay leaves. Knowing that malunggay leaves have some good health benefits, I opted to give it a try and asked her to bring me some the next time she comes over.

How does it taste?

Delicious. For a mere 2 Php per piece, this was really worth it. I was never really a big fan of pandesal because I found it too grainy. Somehow, since this tastes a little sweeter and was softer than any other pandesal that I ever tasted, I really enjoyed it. A healthy breakfast for only 10 Pesos or less?? Unfreaking believable. I love it too much.

Here are some benefits of Malunggay Leaves:

Helps strengthen the immune system.
Help restore skin condition, controls blood pressure, relieves headaches and migraines.
Help increase semen count.

Help normalize blood sugar level therefore preventing diabetes.
Malunggay has anti-cancer compounds (phytochemicals) that help stop the growth of cancer cells.
Helps relax and promote good sleep.
