Hamburgers and French Fries

I was introduced to McDonald's when I was about 7 years old. I associated it with Hong Kong since there were no McDonald's or Jollibee yet at that time here in Manila. (just goes to show how old I already am :) ).

During high school and college, McDonald's and Jollibee are the "blowout" places. Meaning, if somebody has a birthday and wants to treat his friends, that's the place to go.

My son's first birthday party was celebrated at McDonald's. Less cost, less hassle.

There were a lot of instances where these fast food chains play a role in our lives. Hamburgers and fries are hits at parties, albeit not very healthy food choices. I am foreseeing that we will still be eating a lot more McDo and Jollibee in the years to come.
