Sweet Sarap Moments with Jolly Spaghetti and Jodi Sta Maria

Quick! Think of the happiest memories that you have with your mom or dad when you were a kid... Those times that they taught you how to ride a bike, learn to try out something new, or have them comfort you with your favorite food as a kid. Sweet Sarap Moments like that really make me miss my own parents these days, but I try to overcome that by showing those same ideals to my own kids...

My own daughter and son loves spending our Sundays over the kiddie place at Jolibee Alabang Zapote, playing there after enjoying a hefty lunch of Jolly Spaghetti and Chickenjoy. Heck, she loves said spaghetti so much it's what she has requested for her mini birthday celebration last May 12th. And that's just one reason to celebrate with Sweet Sarap Moments.

Another is the fact that Jodi Sta. Maria and her son Thirdy joining the Jolibee Family, as the newest brand ambassadors for Jolly Spaghetti! :) Jodi and Thirdy, who stars in the latest TV commercial for Jolly Spaghetti, shared their own personal experiences, from happy memories when she was a kid and to how she now enjoys the same bonding moments with Thirdy during the media launch held at the Ortigas Roosevelt branch.

Jodi confesses to being a certified Batang Jollibee, even before she got into show business. Her mother worked hard to raise Jodi and her siblings, but made sure to devote her Saturdays to quality time over her children’s favorite Jollibee treats.

“Every Saturday, iti-treat niya kami sa Jollibee sa may Landmark food court,” Jodi recalled. “Talagang masasabi ko na kinalakihan ko si Jollibee. At hindi lang ‘yon, kasi bawat party, bawat celebration, talagang naging part siya ng family namin at ng pamilyang Pilipino.”

Growing up, Jodi said she would often order Jolly Spaghetti and Jolly Hotdog, and it became staples in her bonding moments with her mom. Now that she’s a mother herself, she wants to pass on the same joyful experience to Thirdy. The 10-year old loves the cheesy, meaty, and sweet-sarap flavors of Jolly Spaghetti.

Wala akong nakilalang bata na gusto ng maasim na spaghetti,” the actress remarked candidly. “Especially Filipino children. I believe na nakuha ng Jollibee ‘yung manamis-namis na timpla na hinahanap-hanap ng bawat batang Pilipino.”

The actress related that she and Thirdy can spend hours upon hours just talking about anything, especially over their favorite Jolly Spaghetti. They often order “C3,” the Jolly Spaghetti and Chickenjoy combo, for delivery or drive-thru.

Sa hapagkainan, that’s where the bonding happens. Nakakatuwa si Thirdy when you spend time with him. He’s a very opinionated child. Baka pwede siyang maging lawyer,” Jodi proudly added.

The launch was embellished with lots of fun and games for the kids, coloring activities and a contest giving us parents and kids a chance to create our very own sweet sarap moments by winning a ticket for 4 to DreamPlay.
