Jollibee has always been a part of my life.

The Jolly Hotdog was my favorite in high school. I don’t know how many times I had it, but I am very sure I ate a lot of it. It’s still my favorite right now and it’s amazing how it tastes exactly like it did when I was in high school.

I am also a big fan of their French fries. I prefer it over the fries of McDonald’s . One thing I like to do is ask people which fries they prefer, and then bond with them if they like the fries from Jollibee, or passionately defend the Jollibee fries if they say they like the fries from McDo.

I also remember stanning for their chili wings. It was sadly available for just a limited time and I’m just bummed they never resurrected that.

But my super favorite from Jollibee is the Jolly Spaghetti because it is the Pinoy spaghetti. I like that it is sweet. I like that it is blood red. I like that it has hotdogs. I like how one bite instantly transports me back to my childhood, when my mom would bring home some as pasalubong.

Sadako is also a Jolly Kid who loves the Jolly Spaghetti; that’s her favorite from Jollibee, actually.

So imagine how excited she was when I told her I was attending a Jollibee event and that I was tagging her along.

At the photowall, she wore a crown (you know how most girls are) and a picture of a giant Jolly Spaghetti.

While waiting for the program to start she colored some pictures (in purple, her favorite color).

And then these cute mini-managers came in and served Jolly Spaghetti, iced tea, and peach mango pies.

Sadako was fine with just the spaghetti.

Jollibee was there, of course. Hetty Spaghetti was present, too.

Sadako had so much fun all throughout the event, especially that part when everyone was asked to dance along to Jollibee’s new jingle.

But the highlight of Sadako’s day was reuniting with her classmate Xia, who is the newest endorser of the brand. I intentionally didn’t tell Sadako because I wanted to surprise her. She’s been missing her classmates so I knew she’d want to see Xia again especially because they won’t be classmates anymore.

Super fun day!
