Jolibee

Thanks to Katta, a mystery is solved! When my daughter Joli started Emirates British Nursery last year, it didn't take very long before they all started to call her "Joli B". I could not understand why, there was no logic to it, her last name starts with an "L". And yesterday, when reading Katta's blog where she mentiones about the fast food restaurant "Jolibee" in the Philippines, the penny dropped. Most of the staff are young, sweet girls from the Philippines so of course, with my daughter being named Joli, it was unavoidable to add the "bee" to it and voila, Jolibee!

The funny thing is that she has started to call herself "Jolibee" when people are asking for her name!

  2. Hej!

    Haha vad roligt :) gulligt ju! Så söt hon är lilla Joli! Och vilka fina bilder du tagit! Mmm Raffles är härligt :)

    Själv känns det som om jag inte hinner nåt alls just nu, varit borta de senaste 4 helgerna, ska bort i helgen, pluggat massa juridik, sista, muntliga tentan på måndag och SEN ska jag njuta av sommaren! Har liksom ingen tid att bara leka med A, baka, laga god mat, surfa, läsa en tidning/bok osv. Men men, snart blir det bättre :)

    Kram o ha en fin vecka!
