Jollibee has been a big part of my life. My sister was born in the same year as Jollibee. It was then called Jollibee Yumburger. I remember when I was young, we were always been treated to a Jollibee meal. Shopping Malls were not yet born that time but we always frequent Cubao where the first stores of Jollibee were located. One time, we just passed by a Jollibee store and didnt buy anything when my sister suddenly blurted out "JOBIBEE" - her very first words upon seeing the then Jollibee Yumburger logo.
Ten years after, I was already a teenager and I had to work part-time because of my erratic schedule in college. I got the opportuntiy to work in Jollibee as a part-time Service Crew. I enjoyed the mornings and late-evenings serving my favorite fastfood between my calculus, computer and automata classes.
Twenty years after, I got married and eventually had children who also became addicted to Jollibee. Their favorite food is Jollibee. Their birthday parties included Jollibee. Their first words = JABEE" or "BEE". Until now, we wouldn't let an opportunity pass without going to Jollibee whenever we are in a mall.
Now that Jollibee has turned 30 years, I want to congratulate the Filipino ingenuity of the first ever fastfood chain to level with or even surpass American brands. I'm proud to say that I was a part of the Jollibee workforce where Good Customer Service, Time Management and Quality Consciousness are just some of the traits a crew learns by heart and develop as one matures. I'm still taking advantage of these traits in my present career.
Here, I am sharing pictures of the 2 Jollibee dolls from different generation (notice the big change) as a symbol of my loyalty to Jollibee - always part of the milestones of my life.
