All of us have our own seasons in love. There’s summer love, rainy heartbreak, winter loneliness and also spring beginnings. Whatever season you’re in, Jollibee reminds us in this phrase that will encourage you: HAVE FAITH IN LOVE.
And this Valentine’s Day, Jollibee returns with a new set of heartwarming Kwentong Jollibee episodes that will remind viewers to keep their faith in love, showcasing how it always prevails in spite of heartbreaks, rejections, and challenges that come along.
