Mom & Tina’s…

Mom and Tina’s Bakery Cafe

Mom and Tina’s is a cozy country restaurant tucked at the heart of Makati, just a few blocks away from Ayala Avenue corner Paseo and walking distance from the Greenbelt area. For employees working in the vicinity where endless list of food galore awaits them in Greenbelt, one would rather go here and be welcomed by the guard with his ear to ear smile as his way of greeting you and delightfully opens the French entrance door for you to come in, as if it’s already a part of his daily routine.

One would be so full of guts to put up a food business among hundreds of spots to compete with. It just shows they are paralleled when it comes to taste, quality and service.

The Christmas spirit is already felt the first time I went there with my buddy. Coming from a number of meetings, presentations and work-related stuff. We can’t afford to drag our feet to go to Greenbelt but rather slouched on their comfy couch instead.

We ordered paella then, some pasta and blueberry cheesecake…

Blueberry mini cheese cake..

The place is ideal for tete-a-tete with your BFFs, treat your mom or son and daughter, for me I guess. Though looking around and seeing the other folks in the corner, or the table beside us or that group of men in the middle, the patrons must have come from all walks of life..Even lovers..or couples. =)

I then, captured another favorite. An ala carte apple pie…

I’ll come back for this over and over again…=)

Filipinos as a food lover, just like me, would always be grateful for heavenly places such as this. Especially if your food preference is almost everything that you will see in their cute menu… I’ll keep tagging my loved-ones here.. I’m super sure they’re gonna love it the way I do! (–,) And thank you buddy for bringing me here….(–,)

See you again Mom & Tina’s…(–,)

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
