Kapolei Day 5. Today is the first Tuesday of Jollibee Kapolei’ s grand opening. Today I came in during the early afternoon time. More so in lunch time. It is a cold and rainy Tuesday. I was debating on whether or not I will go through the drive-thru again but I just parked because I had to use the restroom. The dine-in beezyness was about 30 percent. It was not so busy for a lunch time hour timeframe. There was only a few people in the store. Anyways, today I just got two side orders of rice. Yes, just rice. Jollibae is sick at home today and luckily I have some sinigang that my mom gave me but I just did not have any rice so I figured I just get some at Jollibee to encompass my visit.
Kapolei Day 4. Today is the first Monday since Jollibee Kapolei’s grand opening. I was not able to come yesterday (Sunday, December 10, 2017) due to my inability to come since I ran the Honolulu Marathon for most of the day. Nonetheless, I will still pursue the 100 days of Jollibee happiness at Jollibee Kapolei, though it will not be consecutive this time. Today, I came in during the evening time to try out their drive-thru for the first time. The drive-thru beezyness was actually quite busy. It was about 60 percent I would say. I was just going to go in to get a peach mango pie. But still yet, it took a while to go through the drive-thru. There were many cars ahead so I think it was still peak dinner timeframe. The drive-thru itself is very nice and Jollibee Kapolei did a great job to make it pretty inviting with all of the outside signage and what not. I could also see the dine-in beezyness, which was about 40 percent I would say. The timeframe of being in line was about 10-15 minutes. I think I could have saved time but just parking and going through the store.
Kapolei Day 3. Today is the first Saturday of the opening weekend for Jollibee Kapolei. I came over in the afternoon time alongside my sisters, niece, and Jollibae. The drive-thru beezyness was about 30 percent. After coming to this location for about two days in a row, I am pretty sure the drive-thru will be the busiest for the store. I got a Jollibee chickenjoy kids meal with fries. I had the option of choosing which toy I want to get and obviously I automatically chose Jollibee. They still have the Jollibee/JolliTown Jollibee and friends musical band theme for the toys. The dine-in beezyness was about 30 percent. After coming to this location yesterday, I can pretty much guess that they have their busy times at certain times. I was told that there will be Jollibee mascot appearances during the weekend so that would be pretty cool to check out. I let my jolly niece Hazel play with the Jollibee toy after she ate her food and really liked playing with it. In regards to my 100 days of continuous jollyness and happiness at Jollibee Kapolei, I do not think it will be consecutive but it will be a 100 day stretch though. I think that will be the difference this time around for my Jollibee feature. Later on in the evening, Jollibae got me jolly spaghetti for dinner as my last carbo load meal before the Honolulu Marathon that I will be running the next morning. Jolly spaghetti has always been an annual tradition dinner carbo load meal before my run at the Honolulu Marathon the next Sunday morning.
Kapolei Day 2: Today is the second day of Jollibee Kapolei’s opening weekend. Today I came in during the late afternoon time. There is still much energy and excitement for Jollibee Kapolei. When coming in, I almost forgot they were open but they are open already! The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent. The drive thru beezyness was pretty slammin’ I would say 60 percent. It was during rush hour so seemed like most people were going to the drive thru. There was people dining inside and outside. You can still see that there are a few people in front of the restaurant that are wearing black jollibee polos most likely representing Jollibee corporate representatives from the mainland, whom I also met yesterday too at the grand opening. Today I swung by to get a spaghetti kids meal to go. I will be running the Honolulu Marathon this weekend so I got a jolly spaghetti for obvious carbo loading reasons.
Jollibee Kapolei Day 1: Grand Opening. Today is the grand opening of Jollibee USA newest location in Hawaii on the island of O’ahu. It is located within the Ka Makana Ali’i Shopping Center area in Kapolei. I have been checking out this location for a very long time after passing through the construction of the new store many times while visiting Ka Makana Ali’i for the past few months just in admiration and awe of the beauty. It is now finally open! Even when the new Ka Makana Ali’i shopping center just opened they were announcing that Jollibee will be coming soon to the new mall! It is towards the back of the mall right near Macy’s, Wendy’s, and before 24 hour fitness. Anyways, I did a Facebook vote post on Facebook to see if I should do another 100 days of happiness at the new location. I got a 10/10 votes saying that I should do the people have spoken and it shall be done. I have a whole lot of support especially with my Jollibae, Nichelle. We actually went down together to be the first customers of the new location. The new location is very nice and modern, probably the nicest stand alone Jollibee that I have seen. Nichelle was even saying it is the nicest one that she has seen as well. Both the exterior and interior is very nice. When you step in the the entrance they have quite a lot of table and seating areas. While in line we got to talk story with a few Jollibee representatives. We got there just a little after 7am and they opened at just a little after 8am. Just being in line fueled the joy and jollyness again, a time of tasting and being at a Jollibee for the first time. For example, standing in line to be the first one at Jollibee Kalihi. The inside of the store is really nice, they have a lot of table and seating areas. The set up is almost like the combination design of all Jollibees in Hawaii so far. Right when they opened the doors all of the crew workers were very welcoming. When we went to order, we were bummed to know that they do not have breakfastJoys available. Instead, we ordered two burger steak meals and two peach mango pies. The only deal that they were having for the first 100 customers was a free jollibee doll with a $20 or over purchase. Honestly, it wasn’t really a grand opening perk to me but it is what it was. While we were ordering, the actually Jollibee mascot came out greeting all of us customers as well and even took a picture with us. It was very Jolly indeed having the Jollibee Kid, Jollibee, and Jollibae in one photo. Too much jollyness power right there. Towards the back of the restaurant they have a cool picture with Jollibee doing his signature twist move. Speaking of restroom, I checked it out and used it for the first time. It was very nice, clean, and fresh of course. We stayed for a bit and took a few more pictures of the area. Will be back for day two of Jollibee Kapolei jollyness.
Kalihi Visit. Today I came over in the late afternoon time. I came over with my Jolly niece Hazel because I think she was craving Jollibee so we went ahead and went to the closest Jollibee after picking her up from school. She gets excited and is happy when she sees Jollibee. The dine-in beezyness was about 40 percent. We just got a yumburger kiddie meal with pineapple juice. We got one of the Jollibee toys which was one of the Jollitown characters Popo. The Jollibee kiddie Jollitown toys have a musical theme. Hazel liked the toy and had fun playing it. She mostly just ate the Jolly crispy fries along with her pineapple juice. The drive-thru beezyness was about 20 percent. Since it is almost thanksgiving and Christmas time, they also now have their Christmas meal bundle specials going on.
Seafood City Waipahu Visit. Today I came over to the Seafood City Waipahu location after a long break from Jollibee since August! I came over with Jollibae. I was telling her that it has actually been a long time since I visited Jollibee. The last time I went was with my Jolly niece, Hazel. Anyways, we came over for a late lunch around the mid afternoon time. The dine in beezyness was about 70 percent. It was actually quite beezy around the time that we went. We both got ultimate burger steak meals after a long run workout and it was very satisfying and filling and of course very Jolly in a Jolly way. They have some new toys which was tempting to get. The kiddie meal toys were of course Jollitown with a music theme. They also brought back the cheddar cheese Jolly fries. I can’t wait until they open the new Jollibee in Kapolei at the Ka Makana Ali’i mall. To do another Jollibee Kid run of 100 days or not to do and stay retired? That is the Jolly question.
Kalihi Visit. Today I came over to the Kalihi visit after I picked up my niece Hazel. She automatically new and realized where we were going and where we were at already when we pulled in to the drive way of Jollibee. She got excited and shouted, “Jollibee.” Of course she can’t articulately say “Jollibee” but more like “Jobee!” Anyways, I can tell she was excited. I pretty raised her so far to like and know what Jollibee is and stuff. Anyways, I just got a Jollibee kids meal chickenJOY meal for her. The drive thru beezyness was about 20 percent. The dine in beezyness was about 45 percent.
Waipahu Visit. Today I came over to the original Waipahu location at Waipahu Shopping Plaza for kinda of the same reasons that I had yesterday in regards to getting another backpack for myself. Kinda like one to cop and one to rock kind of action. Anyways, it has been a while since I came over to this location. It hasn’t changed much. The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent. You can see all of the Filipinos who got out of church and stuff. Anways, I ordered one Jollibee kids meal chickenjoy and one backpack. Afterwards, it was a convenient visit because I got Jollibae sinigang to go at Max’s of Manila nearby.
Kalihi Visit. Today I went over primarily because the homie Nico snapped me a photo that they have Jollibee Back to School Jolly backpacks on sale along with a purchase of a Jollibee kiddie meal! I was so stoked and see that. So I had to make sure I went down to go and make a visit and purchase a bag! The bags are available during the summer and for 7 dollars with a purchase of a Jollibee kids meal. I came over during the later evening time like around 9pm. The dine in beezyness was about 50 percent. The drive thru beezyness was about 30 percent. Anyways I got two backpacks. I was no shame man. Jollibae was with me too when I got it. I plan on giving one to my niece Hazel. It makes me I was a real kid again because the Jollibee backpack has a cool Jollibee hoodie attached to it too!I got a spaghetti kids meal to go.
