Inspiring and Heartfelt Kwentong Jollibee Valentine Series

Though Valentines for me will be vastly different I still welcome the holiday. Jollibee has launched three new videos under its highly successful #KwentongJollibee series in time for Valentine’s Day.

Kianna and I attended a special exclusive screening at the Ayala Malls The 30th of the #KwentongJollibee videos that were inspired by true stories of love. The connotation of Jollibee and love instantly brings to mind only happy and mild musings however, I was more than pleasantly suprised to entertained with truly inspiring and heartfelt stories.

I make it a point to have one of my kids along (when permitted) to events I attend. Kianna has happily found someone she cares about (but no further than that!) and I loved that we shared this experience. Though she teased me a bit because of my loveless status, my kids are more than enough to make up for this new Valentines.

The three stories were incredible and thoughtfully made. Each story represents a different kind of love only affirming that love comes in all forms and sometimes not what we at all expected.

In what could be the most relatable case of unrequited, unconditional love, “Vow” pays homage to people who continue to love, without expecting anything in return. Directed by Ianco dela Cruz (who helmed all previous Kwentong Jollibee materials), it tells the story of a man who fell deeply in love with “the one” from the time he first saw her at a Jollibee store.

The second story “Date” explores the grim realities of life and love, yet brings to light the beautiful gift of endless love. Directed by Pepe Diokno, it showed how a young boy took the effort to arrange a surprise Valentine’s dinner for his mother following his father’s instructions to the letter. The son manages to set up the perfect date with his mom, complete with her Jollibee favorites.  The mom was overwhelmed when the son shows her a video recording, which revealed that the Valentine’s date was yet another proof of her husband’s eternal love for her.

“Crush” is directed by Joel Ruiz and appeals to all the hopeless romantics in us. It is a feel-good and charming tale of a young college boy who’s head-over-heels in love with his schoolmate and who chooses to express his feelings by leaving her with anonymous cheerful notes with her favorite Jollibee burger. Decades later, a homecoming event sees the boy, now an elderly man, making the same romantic gesture for the love of his life.

  1. I couldn’t help but cry with “Date.” Naisip ko tuloy, “pwede nga pala yun ano?” With the kind of technology we have nowadays, we have so many ways to remind our loved ones how much we care for them even if we’re gone.

  2. Damn. These stories surely take away the breath of every Filipino. I think it’s in our nature to be cheesy with Valentine’s. The nation’s going crazy with all the Valentine’s Day gifts. I seriously will be happy to see these. Actually, I am excited to see these!

  3. It’s nice to know that there are still mothers who have a close relationship with their mothers. You rarely see mother and daughters act as if they are just friends. And I love knowing people who does. I simply feel happy for them, and also for you. My mom and I aren’t close so I couldn’t tell her about my ex-boyfriends or any of my emotional struggles. But things have changed last year. I started opening my heart and realized that my mom has been there for me all along. She just didn’t ask. And I just didn’t take the courage to tell her how I feel. There is still a few days left before Valentines Day and I’m planning to buy my mom a bouquet of flowers. After all, Valentines Day isn’t just for your partner but for all your loved ones which includes friends and family as well. 🙂

  4. Selfless love is an alien concept these days. Today love means to be loved back. This post has a deep meaning to it even though you have written it in a very simple style. I hope to read such wonderful posts from you more often in the future. Keep writing.

  5. These are so sweet and definitely timing for the love season. It’s quite a remarkable marketing strategy from Jollibee, too! I am so blessed to have found and received so many love in my life – from my family, special someone, and friends. I know you feel the same way, even with what you call “loveless”. 😉 Happy Valentine’s Day to you! <3
