A Jollibee store has recently gone viral, earning praises from netizens after the staff threw a party on Grandparents’ Day for a vendor who has been selling kakanin at the fastfood’s parking lot for several years.
The old vendor was identified as Lola Belen who sells kakanin like tupig, chicharon, and mani at the parking lot of Jollibee Carmen, Pangasinan in northern Philippines.
In a post on Jollibee’s official Facebook page, it was revealed that Lola Belen has been selling kakanin since 1978, after her husband died. The now 76-year-old Lola Belen continues to sell kakanin not just as a matter of habit but to also help provide food for her grandchildren and send them to school – much like many grandparents across the country.
To honor this wonderful grandmother, Jollibee Carmen decided to celebrate Grandparents’ Day by surprising Lola Belen and her family with a special Jollibee party.
For this very special day, Lola Belen was the star of the moment – and Jollibee was the first one to make the ‘mano’ gesture as the party started.
Invited in this special affair are Lola Belen’s two children Carmelita and Eva plus her four grandchildren, namely, 21-year-old Julie Anne, 13-year-old Justin, 8-year-old Joshua, and 5-year-old Mae.
For the feast, the Jollibee branch provided the family with two buckets of its trademark ChickenJoy, palabok, and spaghetti. They were also provided with sundaes and softdrinks.
While many slammed the fastfood for ‘using’ this poor family to promote their brand, more were impressed that even for just one day, the Pinoy fastfood giant honored a hardworking grandmother who still works to provide her family with the things they need.
There were also a lot who commented that Lola Belen’s should make her stop selling kakanin, considering she’s 76 years old.

Gorgeous Peanut Vendor Goes Viral in Witty Netizen’s Joke Post
When netizen Dale Camus saw a gorgeous peanut vendor one day, he immediately talked to her and determined that she was, indeed, a legitimate peanut vendor and not one who might have been just manning the place to help the real vendor get more customers, just like what that gorgeous popcorn vendor girl from Pampanga did.
According to Dale, the beautiful lady confirmed that she was a real peanut vendor, not someone just posing there at the food cart for attention.
He revealed that the peanut vendor can be found at Salawag, Dasmariñas in Cavite at a location near TUP (which actually stands for Technological University of the Philippines – Cavite).
Dale also revealed that the peanut vendor was rather shy but allowed him to take photos. He hoked that he would bring a photographer the next time he comes to visit her and buy peanuts.
But while the peanut vendor does look gorgeous, netizens just could not help but be amused at the way Dale introduced her on social media.
The witty netizen joked that he’s going to share the peanut vendor’s details (her location) to his friends on Facebook because his ‘jowa-desu’ is going to get mad at him later, anyway, upon reading this post.
But as he continued writing his post, his ‘jowa’ arrived and supposedly slammed the laptop on his head, after seeing what he was posting about. LOL.
Hoy, bakit ganito yung nagtitinda ng mani sa Dasma? hahahaha Okay, since papatayin na ako ng jowa-desu ko mamaya pagkabasa niya nitong post ko lulubusin ko na ah, matatagpuan si ate sa Salawag, Dasma Cavite bandang TUP legit na Mani vendor si ate hahaha nag paalam ako sa kanya na magdadala ko ng photographer sa susunod na bibili ako sa kanya. Shytype si ate eh hahaha. Wait lang baka ipalo na sa akin ng jowa ko yung laptop koasdahfoajsdjfsjysjfslklskdkg;lfskh;dkowejsdgmlksjfposepokldfkljdkjrgsfks[ldldskyo45rojsk;lfkg;ldkhljjk;skfsdlkd;lkhl;dk;lkh k;lsafl;jhlkgjklgjklsjdfksjdklgjklsjdgkljflhjlj;ldk;dkghs’l’d;lg’slg;ls’;ldgsasjlkdjalkjslkajdlkasjlsjdlajlsjda
That was hilarious, right? It was, of course, a joke but the witty post got netizens laughing.
And netizens loved the girl’s photos!
No Unli-Rice? No Problem for Resourceful Friends Who Brought Pot to Jollibee
Everyone knows that most Filipino guys eat at least 2 cups of rice with each meal, no matter what they have as viand. This is the reason why restaurants that offer unli-rice options are quite popular.
Now, extra rice is quite expensive at restaurants that don’t offer unli-rice, even in fastfood outlets; so, how can you feed an entire group of hungry young men without breaking the bank at Jollibee? Well, they came up with a rather hilarious but genius solution to that dilemma: bring a pot of rice, of course! LOL
On Facebook page Kwelang Pinoy, photos of the barkada were shared, including their black-bottomed pot which many Pinoys quickly recognized as a pot that the group certainly used at a wood-fired stove.
The hungry bunch ordered at least 5 buckets of ChickenJoy but the rice that came with that was not enough for their hungry tummies; thus, they brought the pot of rice in. They were actually brave enough to put the blackened pot in the middle of their table, knowing that is probably against the rules!
They also took photos with their pot – and it’s obvious from the poses that these were not ‘stolen’ shots from some other diners. Petmalu!
We’re wondering what the management of this particular Jollibee outlet did upon seeing the pot of rice these guys brought inside the store but judging from the fun photos and no complaints included in the post, the staff most likely just shrugged this one off as clever customers or actually had a good laugh over these guys’ antics.
While there were those, as expected, who slammed the guys for their unruly behavior and breaking the fast food rules, many supported them and agreed that restaurants do charge huge money for extra rice but these ‘resourceful’ guys managed to win.
Would you dare bring a pot of rice inside a restaurant? LOL
Gorgeous Popcorn Vendor from Pampanga Goes Viral
It is a reality in life that beautiful people get noticed more easily than what we might call as ‘ordinary’ ones; this is the reason why you might notice that those working in service-oriented fields such as hotel front desk, restaurant servers, and flight attendants are usually those who have good looks and nice bodies.
Some companies even prefer to hire people who do look good – and such actually work in their favor; although blatantly announcing that could mean a discrimination lawsuit. Ooops. But it worked for that store that hired a busty babe in skimpy outfit in Taiwan!
Recently, in Mabalacat, Pampanga, a beautiful young lady went viral for selling popcorn. A lot of people just couldn’t believe that someone so beautiful as her would ‘just’ be selling popcorn – but, hey! Who said popcorn vendors should be ugly, huh?
Anyway, netizen Keren Kazia Bondad Casa shared photos of the lovely popcorn girl and the post went viral. A lot of people praised this young lady for being humble and not being maarte (snobbish) despite her natural beauty.
But things were actually much, much more awesome than what Keren had first posted. The beautiful lady was identified as Louri Caye who laughed at the news that she had gone viral. It turned out she was not actually a real popcorn vendor and didn’t even own the stall but had wanted to help its vendor after seeing the young kid was not getting attention from passers-by.
Thinking it would help the kid earn money, Louri volunteered to help sell the popcorn – and her plan worked! As soon as she started selling, the stall suddenly became the most popular spot in the area. It helped a lot that the friendly Louri had a smile ready for all the customers. Needless to say, the popcorns sold like hotcakes that night.
We greatly admire this young lady, not just for her looks but for her kind heart… God bless you!
