When Matt and Kyle were tots, we were frequent diners of Jollibee. Being there did wonders to their fickle appetites. Buying them those meals with free toys almost guaranteed stress-free feeding time. However, we have long put to rest the kids’ (ours included) cravings for the cholesterol-laden fried goodies – burgers, chicken, french fries, etc. We found other alternatives that were more reasonably-priced, in Cebu’s (still cholesterol-laden) local fare – ngohiong, puso, lechon, etc.
Yesterday, after watching Matt’s basketball game (their team, the Jesuit Eagles, won over USP), we all trooped to Jollibee Ayala for snacks. All the yelling and the cheering got everyone famished, I suppose. It was Jake’s first treat at the establishment since he was born. Like before, we indulged in the same crunchy chicken, and burger plus we got me a petite salad. Jake loved the choco sundae and finished off most of one cup (part of it I ate… small part of it lang… hehehe).
As usual, we had a swell time, finishing off quite easily the small portions of food. Though it didn’t fill the boys up as much as they wanted to satisfy their teenage (aka huge) appetites, it was still considered a welcome treat. Plus, we were all amused to look at Jake getting all messed up.
It guaranteed another stress-free meal, as I expected.
