#ALOHAgain! to the #AmazingAlohaYumBurger

It’s back! one of my favorite jollibee staples, THE JOLLIBEE ALOHA YUMBURGER. It’s successful launch last time has definitely won the people’s heart. Affordable and you could chose from a single and double patty option. 

After much demand and hype over one of the leading quick service restaurant’s most unique menu offerings, Jollibee brings back the irresistibly delicious, truly Amazing Aloha Yumburger for all Filipinos to enjoy.

Diners can now say ‘Aloha’ to the sweet, savory, pineapple-beefy and langhap-sarap flavor explosion from their favorite Amazing Aloha Yumburger. Its fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, signature sweet and juicy pineapple ring, cheese, trademark 100% beef patty, and specially blended honey mustard dressing all come together so seamlessly that treating yourself to one will leave you craving for that juicy, well-balanced indulgence all over again.

It’s no surprise that the Amazing Aloha Yumburger remains to be one of Jollibee’s most successful limited time offers, since the first time it debuted in 1996, re-launched in 2013—the year the legendary Anthony Bourdain hailed it as a “very tasty burger”, and made seasonal menu appearances again in 2014 and 2017. With the well-loved sweet-savory burger back in the market this 2018, fans can instantly solve their Amazing Aloha Yumburger cravings while customers who have yet to try it can treat themselves to a one-of-a-kind multi-layer burger experience.

“The Amazing Aloha Yumburger represents that sweet-savory combination that appeals to the Filipino palate,” Jollibee AVP and Group Category Head for Flagships Cathleen Capati said. “This combination is not commonly found in other burgers or snack offerings which is why those who have tried the Amazing Aloha Yumburger in the past are left with fond memories and a desire for that burst of flavors. Every bite brings a flavorful taste from its diverse ingredients. We are happy to offer this in our menu once again, and we highly encourage everyone—including those who have not tried it yet—to check it out and experience the ‘Aloha’ moment themselves, as soon as they can as it is available for a limited time only.”

The ‘Pineapple-Beefy, Langhap-Sarap’ Amazing Aloha Yumburger is back in all Jollibee stores nationwide for only PHP 85.00 (single patty – solo) and PHP 115.00 (double patty – solo) starting September 3, 2018.

This Rainy Season, Start Fresh with Seattle’s Best Coffee

A great take on coffee + art together can turn out to be great and fun! Who doesn’t love coffee and art.

Anina Rubio creates stellar art pieces, you can see her work around BGC. Her style is modern and fresh just like SBC. She demonstrated her latest art project which is the  highlight of SBC Highstreet’s glass window.  Giving it a fresh take  and her personal touch because she loves her coffee in the morning. 

“I’m very much inspired by nature. You can see it in 98 percent of my artworks. This mural is very personal because I start my day with a shot of espresso or an Iced Americano, and I also have a backyard full of plants, which is a similar setting to what you have here at SBC BGC,” – Anina Rubio

Along with that the series of workshops lined up – The SBC Perkspective, a series of quarterly pocket events that will offer talks, workshops, and informal meet-ups aimed at giving a fresh perspective on how we create and view art, music, photography and other creative processes.

Inspired by Anina’s  work, the handy SBC tumblers were so fun to decorate and personalize according to your personality. I had a small contribution on the mural just the details on the leaves, I think mine looked like chicken feet hehehe

SBC is known for serving FRESH anytime! I personally know this because while I was reviewing for my board exam way back at  SBC – Tomas Morato, there were open till 4am (on selected days) so when I fell to pull an all nighter SBC was my go to- fresh meals, drinks and coffee. Till now my SBC meals and coffee never fails to be always fresh.
