Filipina in America

My 2nd time in Jollibee, first in San Jose, California and now in New Jersey, Yehey!!

I started traveling with my husband in our Motor home on November 2017 from Santa Cruz, California to New York City I found out that Jollibee in New York City will be open soon. And I tried to find in New Jersey, And the moment of truth I really miss Jollibee. And finally here is my lucky day! 

Jollibee is located 393 Danforth Ave, Jersey City NJ 07305, it’s a busy day due
to summer break, i saw many Filipino customers and few black people.

I ordered 2 spicy chickenjoy, spaghetti, peach mango pie and fries. The same taste as in the Philippines, for the food i ate except the spaghetti. The sauce it’s not as yummy as in the Phils.

I met Rene one of the Crew, he work there since Jollibee opened. As i checked in the counter all the crew are Filipino, And of course, we had spoken our national language which is Tagalog or Filipino. I’m so happy meeting my Kababayans!


Island in Geogia
Jekyll Island is located off the coast of the U.S. state of Georgia, in Glynn County. It is one of the Sea Islands and one of the Golden Isles of Georgia barrier islands.

On May 31, 2018, I visited a Historic Hotel of America, discover the Jekyll Club Resort, and Great
Dunes Beach Park, from the heart of the island.

Sharing my compilations of adventure from Jekyll Island is one of the most popular islands for Golden Isles visitors, hosting a wide variety of family-friendly environment.

I highly recommend this place especially now its Summer time in the USA, Come and Experience
the warmth of the sun of Georgia’s coastline.
