It is not surprising at all that Filipinos are crazy over Jollibee. I can say that it is one of the things that we really miss when we, Filipinos move outside The Philippines to start a new life or to work as an OFW. I was in Singapore for years, then moved in Malaysia, When Singapore decided to have Jollibee in Lucky Plaza – A Filipino Mall where you can buy anything Filipinos and of course see and meet Filipinos and have a conversation in our own dialect.
Living in Malaysia just next to Singapore, 4-6hour bus ride, or an hour flight makes me crave more to go there just to eat Jollibee. It is a serious craving. I haven’t been back in The Philippines for so long, Once I scroll to my Facebook and see someone posted anything Jollibee, It is like the end of the world hahaha Saliva all over and I just can’t do anything about it but to just imagine and make something for myself like cook a fried chicken myself and filipino style spaghetti.
Surprisingly, My husband who is not fond of the sweet taste of Jollibee Spaghetti or Jolly Hotdog is now also a fanatic. Even our daughter ask for Jollibee at least once a week which I have no objection at all. That’s how strong Jollibee craving is for my family. Its a part of our life to have it every Friday here in Dubai and indulge the crispy-ness of their chicken joy, & savour it with their yummy gravy! and Just to let you guys know, that Jollibee Chicken Joy is somehow different taste compare to others, Other fast food chain won’t win and that is definitely for real.
So we move to Dubai – 5months now, Jollibee is the main priority haha Dubai Mall was the place to hangout every Fridays. Btw, Friday and Saturday is the weekend in Dubai, UAE so it is Thank God its Thursday! (not Friday) When we arrived in Dubai, They only have Jollibee in Dubai Mall, Located in the FoodCourt. Reason why Filipinos gather there on weekends.
Now it is a total different story. 2 More Jollibee’s are now born Located in the Mall of the Emirates and Burjuman Centre. That is 3 Jollibee Filipino Fast Food Chain in Dubai! Now people are asking for more around Sharjah and Abu Dhabi.
Guess it won’t be too long till they have their own nearest Jollibee. It is conquering Dubai and I say why not! If you’re a first timer in Dubai, Don’t fret! This place is like Manila Full of Filipinos and Filipino Restaurants where ever you go! You won’t be lost! Just don’t trust Waze when driving, I did end up in the desert last time I used it haha =D
