The genius that is Boo's Cheese Jar Creation

The options of desserts in town are getting a little predictable; from the usual molten cakes, the sweetened ice or super sweet teas. When I was working in KL I remembered The Bee's ice creams not because they were the greatest but it felt like the flavors were refreshing and quite innovative. 
I don't know about now, but that alone (something new) to me was very memorable. Interesting flavors. 
After making my rounds of desserts to try, I landed on the epicness that is the jar cheesecake. I don't know anyone else making these cheesecakes in jars (genius!) but I'm so glad Diyana did because they're epic.

Quick Things to do in Kota Kinabalu
