The 100 Day Jollibee Experience

Aloha and Mabuhay!

For those of you who are wondering what kind of page this is, I created this because I decided to make an anthology of my daily experience at the recently opened Jollibee fast food restaurant that is located at the Waipahu Shopping Plaza. As just a few of you and now eventually all of you know, I have been going to Jollibee ever since it’s grand opening on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. I do not know if there is anyone else out there that currently has the same streak as I but I figure I make a record or some sort of documentation now that I have started going to Jollibee on a daily basis. Now you are probably all thinking I am crazy for going to Jollibee every single day but hey it’s Jollibee! If you are Filipino you should know! I got this idea of doing this thanks to Pat and Karen. Their conversation about the documentary “Super Size Me,” makes me want to do this. No, this isn’t about weight or health nor will it be able criticizing the food. This personal anthology is all about the joy of eating everyday at a special place that makes you feel at home. Jollibee brings Joy. Hey, who knows, if I keep this up then maybe I’ll make the paper or news LOL. But once I started eating Jollibee, I couldn’t stop.

I am sure tons of you have the same story but I remember Jollibee when I visited the Philippines along with my sisters in 2000. I remember the spaghetti and the tasty chicken that made me wanting to go back to the Philippines one day again when we left to go back home. There was something about the food, the marketing, and atmosphere of Jollibee that made it special, especially to the Philippines and especially to Filipinos worldwide. I couldn’t wait to go back and taste Jollibee in the Philippines again. 9 years later to 2009, I went back to the Philippines after I graduated college to visit family and have a post-graduation vacation. After getting picked up from the airport the first thing that my cousins asked me where to go I said, “I want to go to Jollibee.” I had Jollibee often during my 21 day stay.

After hearing stories of Jollibees in the mainland, it was so nice to hear Jollibee finally in
to Hawaii! At first I heard about it during the Summer. My friend Louise kept on reminding me and telling me about it. She is a huge Jollibee fan and so am I. Many people including myself have been waiting for this for a very long long time and it is sooo good to see that Jollibee is finally here in the islands! Jollibee is my most favorite food place in the world whether it is in the Philippines or in the USA! Even though I don’t live in Waipahu I have been going there everyday for mostly in the mornings. I never expected myself to do such a hardcore thing but I think this is something I can keep up just to see how long I can keep it going. I hope to see more Jollibee locations open up in the future! I hope you enjoy my daily blog about Jollibee. I hope to keep it updated daily. I have receipts proving about my daily visits there so I can remember what I ordered! LOL!

I hope this facebook diary will not lead you to a source of annoyance and I understand if you think I am weird for being a hardcore Jollibee eater person. Hopefully you can find it amusing and be a source of reading material as I talk about my daily adventures to Jollibee. Thanks and Enjoy!
