Since its soft launch on Valentine's Day, an overflowing of Pinoys from across the East Coast have visited the fastfood chain, sacrificing many hours on waiting line just to satisfy their yearning for that unmistakable taste and the nostaligic Jollibee experience.

On Saturday, March 7, Anakbayan NY/NJ joined that pilgrimage to the infamous, most recognized Pinoy fastfood chain. But due to lack of seats in the packed restaurant, members of anakbayan and its supporters decided to enjoy the meal at the Bayanihan Filipino Community Center on 40-21 69th street woodside.

Chickenjoy, spaghetti, palabok, burgers, peach mango pie, discussion on VFA, the "Jai-ho!" moves, and sharing of most unforgettable scar, most stalkerish and most embarassing moments! &;p

Salamat sa Kappa Pi (Kapatirang Pilipino) brothers, FiRE (Filipinas for Rights & Empowerment) sisters, mga ate at nanay from KABALIKAT Domestic Workers' Support Network and kasamas from Philippine Forum (PF) & New York Committees for Human Rights in the Philippines (NYCHRP) for joining us.
