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) …

Kulay-Diwa Gallery

While searching for a place good enough to have a nice relaxing time in, we decided to choose something nearby that wouldn’t cost as much - since being an employed person gives you so much free time and a lot of allowance after bills. -_-

We found a nice little cozy gallery online called Kulay-Diwa Gallery and decided to go for it because, wait for it... it’s FREE.

Here are some photos from the gallery and how our little trip was spent:

When we got there, it was just a big gate, no signs, no nothing. So we thought, "well.." but since it's free and we did read somewhere that it was a private gallery, we decided to go in. When we entered, it was literally a house - with cars parked, a nice pool, and some doors by the middle. We were greeted by a man who I suppose was a keeper there, he didn't say much. We had called in first to check if it was open and we needed to give our names and the time we were coming in. He was the guy on the phone.

Behind the door was a little office with nice artwork on the walls. And so, we figured "This is a nice start; not a scary house where no one would hear our screams." Even the ceiling was pretty.

We went in the left door and saw a guest signing sheet and a pamphlet for "awareness..." of something. Sorry, I had taken a photo of it but can't find my copy. The guest signing table was along a hallway with I believe around 4 to 6 art works (canvass and photos) on the wall. We figured it was just the start and we'd be seeing more as we went along.

We went left at the end of the hallway (the only way to go) and saw a big room. Yes, just one room with two walls and a few photos. This is all I'm posting, because I'm leaving the other little walls (the hallway and the other wall) a mystery.

There was something interesting in the middle of the room.

Post-its with notes from visitors.

Just 'cause it's a pretty garage door.

There isn't really much to see in here, and it was extremely hot inside with no air condition, a fan, or even windows. If and only if you have 20 minutes spare time, and patience for hot weather would I suggest going here.

I'd give this place:
