Japanese Baked Cheesecake

Always loved Japanese Cheesecake but outside always selling them way too high for a small small portion. And it is very high in fats, so it's a No-No for ppl like me, dying to get rid of the excess kilos. Anyway I saw a member posting a pic of her baked cheesecake in FB and she said that she used the less fat version of creamcheese for this recipe and it turns out well. So, yes, why not? I decided to have a go at it.
During the trip for my weekly grocery shopping, I found out that there is another lower fat version of Creamcheese. I saw the 80% less fat and 60% less fat. Didnt know there is a version of this 80% less fat so I faster grab 1 to keep. After lying in the fridge for 1 week as I was busy baking my mooncakes, I finally found time to do it TODAY!
I took some pics to show the steps but it's very raw so please pardon the poor photo-taking skills. LOL!
