Jollibee's calling my name

notaplainhousewife"I love you Sabado, pati buong Linggo - hintay ka lang Jollibee nandiyan na 'ko!" - this was the song that I kept playing over and over in my head. I feel like a kid again.
Jollibee is a fast-food chain from the Philippines, a counterpart of sorts of McDonald's. The chain offers burgers, fries, fried chicken and dishes that caters to the Filipino palate such as pancit palabok, lumpia and halo-halo among others. In the east coast, the only Jollibee outlets are located in New Jersey. New York and Virginia Beach. For some reason, we do favor the Virginia Beach Jollibee site more. It is the biggest of the three and has more parking space.

The hubby loves the pancit palabok with chicken too but he also likes the Aloha burger, the pandan or ube cooler and also halo-halo. We just learned that they now offer the Jolly hotdog but when we ordered it, we were slightly taken aback by the size because they look like mini hotdog sandwiches. Definitely not the Jolly hotdog that we remember from our childhood. Still we enjoyed every bit of it because we only get to visit this place twice or at most 3 times in a year since it takes us about 5 hours to drive through Virginia Beach. The other outlets were not visited because they are usually out of the way when we visit our friends and family from New Jersey and the parking is also terrible.

I wish we can have a Jollibee in Maryland someday.
