Waipahu Visit 222. Today I came in during the afternoon time with the homies Nico and CJ. We stopped by for some small kine merienda/lunch action before another tinikling practice with the Waipahu High School Filipino club. The dine in beezyness was about 35 percent. There was hardly a line for Jollibee and Red Ribbon. There were many staff workers right up on the counter. We figured that they are new staff for the upcoming new Jollibee in Kalihi. As I was being rung up for a buko pandan cooler and burger steak meal, I think one of the supervisors were in training at the register. Another new discovery was as we were dining in, Nico and CJ pointed out that there were ube mamons on the counter at Red Ribbon. I had to ask them again and clarify if I heard then correctly about mentioning, UBE MAMONS!?! I immediately finished my burger steak plate and headed over to the Red Ribbon section. At first there was none but a staff worker pulled out a new batch so I was pretty excited. I got enough for the whole crew to taste and eat. It’s about $1.49 for one ube mamon.
Later on during the evening as I was headed home from a gig with the crew, I noticed that they put up the Jollibee sign at the Jollibee construction site at the new Kalihi location (formerly KFC). I was pretty excited so I quickly parked my car and took some pics. There’s gonna bee some out with the old chicken and in with the new chickenJOY. I cannot wait until the grand opening day comes.
