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) …

The Beguiled (2017) Review

After much anticipation from the released trailer, I couldn't wait to see the film in its entirety. Given the casting of well known actors, I was most attracted to the name of Nicole Kidman on the list. I thought about how unexpectedly fascinating I found Nicole Kidman's movies and could not wait to see what was interesting about this new one.


The trailer shows much promise as you can see:


Much to my dismay, this was one of those movies that showed much promise in the trailer and far less in delivery. I had hoped to start my weekend with something thrilling and ended up with something disappointing. I love Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, and have gotten a liking to Kirsten Dunst and Ella Fanning, but the thrill that I had hoped for was lacking.

If not for the detailed portrayal of life during this era, the angry scene of Colin Farrell, I would not have continued watching. It was far too long a build up to a scene that did not meet expectations. If not for wanting to watch how different living was in this era, I won't recommend that you see this film.

I rate it:
