Mom and Tina’s Bakery and Cafe: Sweets for Sweet Tooth

I have seen Mom and Tina’s Bakery more than a couple of times on social media. I find it very interesting since they offer cakes and other pastries. Those that I really love: sweets. At present they have 4 branches located in Pasig; Makati; Loyola Heights, QC and South Triangle, QC. I am at their Pasig branch now. This is real time blogging. You can catch me here! Uhmm just like a Pokemon? πŸ˜‰

There are a wide selection of cookies, cupcakes, muffins, bars & pastries, mini cakes & desserts. They also have all-day breakfast, starters, salads, sandwiches, pastas, main dishes, beverages and coffee (hot&cold). They have free Wi-Fi too. 😊 Just ask for the password yeah?

For now, I just wanna share the pics then eat my order. Ciao!

Will post more sweet pics later! πŸŽ‚
Lazada Philippines
Here is “later”. Pardon me but I was not able to take more pics of sweets. I got pre-occupied by trying out Pokemon Go brought by boredom. I’ll share few pics though.

We will surely try other branches of Mom & Tina’s. Here is my rating for Pasig branch.

Food: 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎 (sweets are sweet)

Ambiance: 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎 (refreshing, light)

Service: 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎 (attentive for the refill of my bottomless lemonade)

Staff/Cashier: 🍎🍎🍎 (She was not smiling to think it is very early in the morning. I approached her thrice and ask about their cakes/pastries; never smiled.)


I would really like to approach the lady on the corner. I felt like she is the owner of the cafe. She was talking to several staff and working on her MacBook. I wanted to ask if she is the Mom or she is Tina, and ask more about Mom&Tina’s. But I chickened out. I hope there is next time.

A Child in Me

It has been a while since I remember I played with a doll, I played outside, I played with mud, I played with junks and all the other stuff that children are fond of
Years have passed, all I have are memories of my past

When I was a child everything was new,Β everything was brightΒ and everything amazed me
I used to try all the gadgets with buttons, lights, sounds, pictures not realizing I can mess up
Ignorance was in me

In my growing up years, I began to be a little cautious but curious at the same time

Anxiousness was in me

Now, I know what is right from wrong, what is better or worse…Β 
I am not curious but still cautious
I have learned from previous mistakes hoping not to commit them again

Intelligence is in me

I still find time to play, still gets amazed and tries something new
After all, I still have a child in me
