How could anyone refuse the huge happy eyes and friendly smile of perhaps the most famous mascot in the Philippines? Yes, a veritable Filipino icon, Jollibee of the homegrown fast food chain threw the biggest, star-studded Independence Day celebration on June 11 at the Metro Tent in Pasig City.
The likes of OPM superstars as Sarah Geronimo, Darren Espanto, KZ Tandingan, Lyka Gairanod, Darlene Vibares, JK Labajo, and bands Itchyworms and Spongecola were unable to refuse the big red bee’s invitation to herald the 118th founding anniversary of the Philippines with the masses who love country, music, and good food.
Also spotted at the grand concert were the chain’s celebrity endorsers, namely Jodi Sta. Maria and son Thirdy, and Zoren and Carmina Legaspi with their twins Mavi and Cassy. Together, these four generations of stars led the countdown to Independence Day.
