Kalihi visit.  Today I came over to the Kalihi location for dinner after having a Tekniq Tuesday tinikling session with the Tekniqlingz crew.  I came over with Jollibae as usual.  I got a chicken sandwich with fries.  I was debating if I should have gotten a Jollibee kiddie meal but I was like nah no need.  Jollibae got a chickenJoy meal.  It was pretty poppin’ tonight.  The dine in beezyness was about 70 percent.  It has been a while where I have seen Jollibee pretty busy.  It was mostly teens though, since it is the summer time, I guess there is more of them.  The drive-thru beezyness was about 40 percent.  It was a good dinner tonight.

Ala Moana visit.  So I think today makes my fifth straight visit to Jollibee.  It has been a while since I went to Jollibee that many times consecutively.  Today’s visit was not intentional.  I went over along with other dance crew members of the Tekniqlingz because we had a performance for the Miss O’ahu Filipina showcase event at the centerstage area.  The sectional beezyness was about 20 percent.  There was hardly a line.  Today I got a chickenjoy kids meal with pineapple juice.  This time they finally gave me a Jollibee toy with the actual Jollibee character! I got my food to go takeout and could not dine in with the crew since I had to go visit Jollibae afterwards.

Kalihi visit.  Today I came over to the Kalihi location again this week.  This time, I came with braddah Miec and Glenn.  We just came over after a freestep dance workshop that Miec taught us along with some other people.  The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent.  The drive-thru beezyness was about 20 percent.  I got a yumburger kids meal instead of the usual chickenjoy.  I was not able to get the jollibee toy that I wanted but that is ok.  After eating, we wanted to do a freestep video around the Jollibee store but the lighting was not on point for a majority in the area.  We went somewhere else to make a video instead.

Ala Moana visit.  Today I came over during the late afternoon and early evening time with my jolly niece Hazel.  She loves Jollibee.  Her best friend is a Jollibee doll that I gave her this past Christmas plus she always hangs out with my Jollibee doll whenever I babysit her after picking her up from school.  Anyways, I wanted to go to Jollibee again primarily because I wanted to get the Jollibee toy.  I am in the attempt to collect all of the Jollibee toys now that I have been exposed to them.  I want to collect them because I like the idea of the toy theme of “Pinoy and Proud.” All of the Jollibee toys and the characters in Jollitown (Hetti, Poppo, Yum, and Twirlie) have nationalistic costumes.  Being “Pinoy and Proud,” myself I truly and authentically identify with that and that is one of the many reasons I love Jollibee because Jollibee as an identity and as a brand is just that! The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent.  There wasn’t much of a line.  It has been a while since I went to the Ala Moana location actually.  I just got a chickenJoy kids meal with pineapple juice as usual.  On the the next day.

Kalihi Visit.  Today I came over during the early evening time to eat dinner at Jollibee.  The main trigger was when I saw Jollibae and her younger brother eating Jollibee earlier in the day I guess for lunch.  She snapchatted me a photo with her brother holding a Jollibee toy.  It was Jollibee figure with a barong tagalog attire and I wanted and needed it.  I told her I was going to go to Jollibee and order a kiddie meal to hopefully get the same toy.  She told me that her brother specifically requested for the Jollibee character because there are other toys which represents characters of Jollitown.  Anyways, so I went down and got chickenjoy kids meal.  I ended up not getting Jollibee and got another character.  I was pretty bummed but that is ok.  I got a pineapple quencher instead of a regular drink too.  The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent.  The drive thru beezyness was about 20 percent.  Next time, I am going to bring my niece Hazel and requested for the Jollibee toy.  In other news, they not have a chili dog added to the menu.   It is the same price as the regular Jolly hotdog which is about 2.49.

Kalihi visit.  Today I came back to Jollibee again this time in the Kalihi location with jollibae and dance friends.  Specifically dance friends.  Specifically Filipino dance friends.  We all just came back after having a “Creating Philippine Contemporary Dance” workshop with Master of Arts Graduate student in dance, Toni Pasion.  The jollibae and I got a C1 chickenjoy meal with a side order of jolly steamed rice.  The dine in beezyness was about 40 percent.  The drive thru beezyness was about 20 percent.  We all had a jolly good time with good food and jolly conversations and dialogue.

Seafood City Waipahu visit.  Today I came over to the Seafood City Waipahu location primarily because the jollibae and I were craving some halo halo this late afternoon.  We were going to go to Magnolia but was considering getting halo halo at Jollibee.  But we went to Jollibee for some merienda (snack).  I noticed that they had more Jollibee toys so I got a chickenJOY kiddie meal with a side of regular jolly french fries.  The dine in beezyness was about 60 percent.  The location and store size here in the Seafood City Waipahu location is decently sized.  The jollibae and I came back after a Filipino Fiesta debriefing meeting at the Filipino Community Center so we some people go to Seafood City Waipahu after hahaha.  Jollibee is always the place to bee: It is a place where you can eat and hang out at a place where you feel like home.

Kalihi visit. Today I came over during the evening time with jollibae. As like the saying always goes, when in doubt… Jollibee. The dine in beezyness was about 30 percent. The drive thru-beezyness about 20 percent. I got a Jollibee yum burger kiddie meal with pineapple juice but was sad that I didn’t get a toy with it. They must have ran out or something. Anyways,  I also don’t like it when they always start mopping well even before an hour before closing. Makes it harder and limited for us customer patrons to choose seats. Jollibae got a C2 ChickenJOY meal.

Kalihi visit.  Today I came back again from coming exactly one week ago on a Tuesday.  I came back after attending a breakdance workshop with Bboy Ezekiel Cyde 2.  Anyways, the dine-in beezyness was about 40 percent and the drive-thru beezyness was about 30 percent.  Just like last week, I was also tempted again to go for a kiddie meal but I got the two sandwiches again which are the tuna and egg mayo.  I actually got to egg mayos, one for myself and one for jollibae of course.  The two sandwiches was what I considered my dinner.

Kalihi visit.  Today I made a stopover to the Kalihi location after work to pick up some food before heading over to my jollibae for a study session.  The dine in beezyness was about 50 percent.  The drive-thru beezyness was about 40 percent.  I was originally tempted in getting a kiddie meal because they have some new toys out but I ended up getting the little big bites of egg mayo and tuna.  They always bust those two out for the lenten season special but like I say every year, they should make it all year-round just like the chicken sotanghon soup which they bring out and take out kinda randomly.  Anyways, since today is Pi Day (3.14), I got two peach mango pies, one for myself and one for jollibae.  Although, it is technically not a whole circular pie of sorts, it is still a pie.
