Bea Binene continues to develop her skills outside of the showbiz industry as she returns to school, this time, taking up a course in culinary arts.

“I’ve always wanted to try culinary. And now, I’m finally enrolled at @cacsmanila!!” the 21-year-old said.


“[I’m] very happy that I’ve decided to study here kasi we don’t just cook, but they also teach us sanitation, nutrition, restaurant operations, commercial cooking/baking, and a lot more!!!” Binene stated. “Yep, I’m taking up Professional Culinary and Pastry Arts.”

Binene’s previous endeavors relating to culinary arts include selling her pastry creations through her baking Instagram page, @beabakes_ since December 2015, and recently opening a coffee shop.


Her coffee business, M&B Coffee, started operating in SM Megamall just last June.

Yesterday's achievement. ✨ – – – The journey of setting up a business like this is not a joke. I wanted to be super hands-on and do everything, maybe that's why I'm this stressed. 😂 it was physically, financially, mentally, spiritually and emotionally exhausting. But seeing the finished product makes all the hardships (medyo) worth it… bakit medyo worth it lang? Kasi ngayon naman ang simula ng isa pang challenge—the challenge of staying in the game (kahit madaming ibang nandyan), of fulfilling all our customers wants, the challenge of managing the business properly. I was hard and I know it will not get any easier, but when I saw the result, our customers faces and heard their comments about our drinks, parang medyo nawala na pagod ko. 😅 – – I would like to thank all my suppliers whom become my friends for all the support you've given me, you guys know who you are, babawi po ako sa inyo, promise. 🤣 Thank you also to all my friends (and supporters whom I call friends too) who went to the soft opening yesterday, pasensya na diko kayo masyado naasikaso, pero your presence made me comfortable and alive despite the puyat and pagod. Haha. 🙈 Higit sa lahat, thank you to my family—my titas, tito, cousins and mama and benice, you've helped and guided me through out this journey and I couldn't do it without your guidance. And for course, thank you to our Father above for giving me all the strength, capacity and opportunity that you've been given me. I do this and we owe this to you. 💕 – – We have coffee and pastries that are selected carefully and truly made with love. Trust me, hindi po ito yung basta bastang may maiserve lang. So please, if you're on the area, please please drop by and try our offerings. I hope you guys like it and if you like it, please tell your family and friends to try it too. Hehe. We are located at the FOODCOURT of SM Megamall, Lower Ground Level, Mega A. We are open from 10am to 10pm everyday. 🙏🏼 Okay ang dami ko ng sinabi. We can't wait to see you guys!!
