The trailer of Christopher Nolan’s movie, Tenet, has come out! It hasn’t revealed very much but given some idea about the movie. His previous movies include Dark Knight series, Interstellar and Dunkirk which are amazing, so I’m really excited!

Here’s this week’s menu of our takeaway option. I suggested that my family orders food from BLT – Beef, Lettuce, Tomato. They have great burgers and other dishes like Surf and Turf ones. Good news, my family was very happy with my choice.

Today was a thunderous day with intense rain, wind and dust entering my eyes. Here’s a highlight of that day.
Wednesday, 24th June
The after-effects of yesterday’s thunder was a lot of broken branches, scattered leaves and fallen trees (the thin ones atleast), like the one in the lawn in front of my house. I was very sad as it has remained a lone yet firm tree ever since I moved here and nothing could bring it down. My dogs would always run around this tree but now……I hope you lived well, tree.

I’d recently watched a movie called Arrival, which I loved and cried at the end of so I wrote a review about it. A commenter referred me to the book it was based on; Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang. The story is character are more or less the same with a couple of alterations but what I felt lacking a bit in the movie related to understanding of language was fulfilled in this book. As I’m learning Arabic, it interested me very much.
The book is a short story, 32 pages long, and a very interesting read if you wish to learn about the depth of language.

Behold, a shorter than usual cheesecake baked by me! It tasted great but it turned out that the baking plate in my spring foam pan does not attack firmly to the sides of the tray so about 3/4 of my filling went down the drain. Even the biscuit base couldn’t hold it.
At first, I thought to bake the filling and base separately but taking the filling out of a cake tray would be a disaster like last time. Hence, I decided to bake the base for 20mins, then add the filling and back it for 40mins and i turned out great! I just wished I had the rest of the filling left so that my cheesecake could be taller.

I got the PDF file of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, the new book written by Suzanne Collins which is a prequel of the Hunger Games trilogy. I can’t wait to read it!
