Ala Moana Day 36.  Today is New Years Eve.  The last day of 2011.  The culmination of 2011 is near.  It’s been a pretty good year I would say.  It was indeed a Jolli year.  As I reminisce about all of the Jollibee visits I had thusfar I would rank them as this…

1) Wednesday, March 23, 2011 (The Amazing Aloha – End of 100 Day streak)
2) Friday, November 25, 2011 (Ala Moana Opens!)
3) Sunday, March 6, 2011 (Jollibee Kids Day)
4) Thursday, February 17, 2011 (Official staff discovery of the Jollibee Kid)
5) July 1, 2011 (Red Ribbon’s Debut)

It was a great year full of Jolli moments and experiences for me going to Jollibee with friends, family, and many others.  Getting to know the staff has been heartwarming for me.  As the 2012 new year approaches, I know that there will be many more awesome Jolli moments to come.  During the year, a Philippine marketing publication in the Philippines created an article about me which was super cool to see.

Today I came in during the afternoon time.  The sectional beezyness was about 20 percent.  There was hardly a line.  Jollibee’s face was lite up again.  Today I just got a yum cheeseburger and a peach mango pie.  They asked me if I worked at the mall.  I said yes because technically I do.  They gave me 10 percent discount.  I was happy when they did that.  However, I was disappointed inside because if I only knew that earlier in the beginning I could have been saving money by now.  I was they could create a Jollibee Kid discount for me since I go there all the time! 64 more days to go.

Ala Moana Day 35.  Today I came in at night time.  It’s crazy how fast the year went by.  To me, it felt like this was the fastest year of my life.  Everything went by in a flash, from Jollibee visits, holidays, performances, events, life, etc.  There’s only a day left for 2011 after today.  Hopefully 2012 brings in more exciting challenges.  I don’t really have a set resolution for 2012 except to just keep on moving forward and stay focused on goals and stuff.  As I was walking to the empty line of Jollibee, I noticed that the Jollibee face was not lite like how it usually is.  It was interesting to see.  It kinda symbolizes a sense of downness.  With Jollibee’s face bright and lite, it symbolizes a sense of happiness and jolliness.  I guess maybe they are trying to conserve on some energy and costs? The sectional beezyness was about 15 percent.  Today I got a burger steak meal for dinner and ate it at the mall, so I dined in.  So tomorrow is the last day of 2011, what are you going to do?  65 more days to go.

Ala Moana Day 34.  Today I came in during the afternoon time.  I went along with the big homie JBK Promotions Manager Armand.  He wasn’t going to get anything.  He just tagged along with the ride.  The sectional beezyness was about 15 percent.  It wasn’t beezy at all.  It seems like everything is starting to really slow down now for Jollibee Ala Moana.  There was no line.  Today I just got a medium drink.  It’s interesting to see that a medium drink which costs $1.79 is more than a peach mango pie at $0.99.  Armand and I were going to go to Denny’s right after and I was going to have a big dinner with my co-workers later on at Side Street Inn.  66 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to a lot of people; good friend Josh, Ate Marites, and fellow former Katipunero/future Dr. Professor Jovanie! Hope they all have a Jolli one!

Ala Moana Day 33.  Today I came in at night time.  I didn’t go to work today.  My co-worker Kate filled in for me which gave me more resting time for my sickness.  Today I just got a peach mango pie.  That’s 3 days in a row that I just got a peach mango pie and nothing else.  There was hardly a line tonight.  The sectional beezyness was about 30 percent.  67 more days to go.

Ala Moana Day 32.  Today I came in during the early evening time after work.  I got off of work early because I was feeling like doodoo today.  My co-workers saw it in me so I had to go.  Today I just got a peach mango pie just like yesterday.  The sectional beezyness was about 55 percent.  There was a small line.  68 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to fellow Tekkie Nuelle! Hope she has a Jolli one!

Ala Moana Day 31.  Today is the day after Christmas, supposedly the second most busiest shopping day next to Black Friday.  Today I came in at lunch time for lunch during lunch break from work.  Prior to coming down, my co-worker Fumi announced in the morning at work that she will finally try and go to Jollibee.  She kept her word and so we went.  She was wondering on what to get and decided to get chickenjoy.  I told her that she has to try the chickenjoy first before trying the dip ‘n strip chickenjoys.  She has to taste the original langhap sarap basic foundation first before trying the upgraded chicken and that goes to everyone else also who are Jollibee virgins.  I gave her my free drink coupon for a 2 piece chickenjoy with a side meal.  Fumi was having a hard time trying to locate Jollibee Ala Moana on her own even with directions so I accompanied her to the location.  She said she wouldn’t have been able to find the place on her own due to her unfamiliarity of Ala Moana Center and the Makai Market Food Court.  Today I just got a peach mango pie.  There was a small line.  The sectional beezyness was about 55 percent.  I was more excited for her going to Jollibee for the first time than her going to Jollibee for the first time herself.  I saw the homie Marvin today.  He asked me what I did since Jollibee Ala Moana was closed yesterday on Christmas day and if I still came.  I told him I just went to Waipahu to substitute the day.  I asked him if they were going to be open on New Year’s Day and he said yes they were.  I now don’t have to worry about anymore other holidays for Jollibee Ala Moana and can continue the 100 day adventure freely.  She ordered her meal take out to go and we walked back to work where she got a taste of her very first chickenjoy.  She was 100 percent satisfied.  She along with me and co-workers Pomaika’i and Mami where there to witness the Jolli occasion.  It was a very Jolli moment to see.  So this marks yet another Jolli deviriginification in action.  First, Sam, then Fumi, who’s next? LOL.  69 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to the best Manny Pacquiao look a like in the workd, Kristian! Hope he has a Jolli one!

Waipahu Visit 175.  Today is Christmas.  The most Jolli and joyous day of the year.  I remember last year when going to Jollibee Waipahu.  It seems like it was yesterday.  Anyways, today since Jollibee Ala Moana was closed, I went to Waipahu to substitute for that visit.  I came in the afternoon time.  Technically, I already failed my streak but I guess I can count a Waipahu visit to keep the Jollibee visits going right.  Jollibee Waipahu had their holiday hours up by the entrance door.  I should call Jollibee Ala Moana again to see when else during the holiday season they will close.  I brought over a couple of gifts for Jollibee and Red Ribbon.  Hope they enjoy it.  Today I got a ube and buko pandan peark cooler from Jollibee.  They still have the buy one get one free pearl cooler deal which is super awesome.  There was a small line for Jollibee and none for Red Ribbon.  There was also a party going on in the back of the store.  The dine in beezyness was about 25 percent.  I also got something from Red Ribbon.  I got a Ube loaf which I think is a new item on their bakery side.  I also found out from a pamphlet that they now have a Red Ribbon in Don Quijote in town!?! I gotta go check that out! So back to the streak, I think I will bypass this day and continue on with the consecutive self visit challenge and resume tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to my good fellow Jaycee friend Mary and our one and only Godfather of Godfathers Jesus Christ! Hope she has a Jolli one! Merry Christmas!

Ala Moana Day 30.  Today is Christmas Eve.  The time when everyone is starting to culminate and gather the joys of Christmas.  Today I came in after work with the Big homie/Promotional Manager Armand.  We didn’t eat the whole day and stuck it out without any lunch break at work.  We closed early at the shop due in observance of Christmas and Christmas eve.  We tried encouraging all the other staff at work to come join us on the fun but no one wanted to.  We really tried encouraging and convincing Fumi to go but she passed again like always.  Typical Fumzmeister.  So it was the 2 man Denny’s crew once again.  In the morning, I called Jollibee Ala Moana to see if they are open tomorrow (Christmas Day) by any chance.  I found out that they were not going to be open.  I suddenly paniced.  I didn’t know what to do.  The streak of going to Jollibee Ala Moana 100 days in a row is going to be ruined.  I quickly thought of what to do.  I called Jollibee Waipahu to see if they were open tomorrow and found out that they were.  They are open from 11AM to 6PM tomorrow on Christmas Day.  I will just go to Jollibee Waipahu to substitute for the Jollibee Ala Moana visit.  But then I thought to myself it wasn’t going to bee the same.  I still needed a receipt proving I am at Jollibee Ala Moana on that day.  Maybe I will just go to Jollibee Ala Moana on Christmas Day and take a picture of myself proving that I visited that day.  That is just how the Jollibee Kid rolls.  So today, there was a small line.  The sectional beezyness was about 30 percent.  Armand got the chickenjoy dip ‘n strip meal with the free drink coupon I gave him.  I used the free drink coupon for an Amazing Aloha.  I am starting to observe more new staff workers at the stand.  Today I asked for Raspberry Iced Tea like I always do and they even repeated “Raspberry.” They ended up giving me pink lemonade.  I excused them for the error.  Later on during the day in the evening, my friend Randy gave me a gift for both Christmas and post Birthday.  He gave me a Jollibee gift card and a spaghetti joy meal.  It couldn’t have been any better with a meal served fresh along with a gift card.  It was some awesome gifts that a Jollibee Kid could ever get! 70 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to my friend Jae! Hope she has a Jolli one!

Ala Moana Day 29.  Today I came in at lunch time for lunch during lunch break from work.  The sectional beezyness was about 40 percent.  There was a small line.  Today I just got a 3 piece chickenjoy with 2 scoops of rice plate.  The Jollibee face seems to be scratched up today.  As soon as Christmas and the upcoming holidays are approaching, it makes me wonder is Jollibee is still going to bee open during those times… 71 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to fellow Katipunero Michael and fellow Tekkie Nico the Ride.  Hope they have a Jolli one!

Ala Moana Day 28.  Today I came at night time before heading over to a UH Men’s Basketball game at the Stan Sheriff Center with my friends Randy, Ruthe, and her sister.  There was a long line tonight.  The longest I’ve seen it go and the longest I’ve been in.  The sectional beezyness was about 75 percent.  The line went by past the Haagan Daaz ice cream stand.  The worker there wanted some Jollibee but he couldn’t stand the line.  Not to be racial but I had some White people moments tonight.  There was a family, the wife is Filipina, and the husband is White.  The husband said to the wife, “honey, I  am not going to stand in this line and I am going to get my food somewhere else.” The wife, grandma, and the kids stayed in line.  The kids did not look Filipino at all.  They all look hecka White and it is hard to see the Filipino in them.  Again, no racial.  the kids were super restless and running around.  The wife was kinda irritating.  Soon, thereafter, there was a White couple, and the White lady said, with the most loudest and excitable voice,  “OM MY GOSH, THERE’S A JOLLIBEE HERE!?!” I think that was the most trippy and coolest thing I’ve witnessed out of all of my Jollibee visits thusfar.  72 more days to go.

Happy Birthday to my good friends Peter and Charleigh! Hope they both have a Jolli one!
