Jollibee's recent string of 'Kwentong Jollibee' commercials are recently going viral in social media, and it's not surprising why. The valentines-themed ads taps into Filipino values of love and sacrifice, but at the same time these true-to-life, heart-wrenching stories triggered all the feels from Filipinos around the country by making them remember similar instances where moments like these happened our own lives.

Firefly View Deck: An Amazing View and a Mongolian Feast

The Firefly View Deck, located at the rooftop of City Garden Grand Hotel, is popular for its view of the beautiful Makati skyline 32 floors high. It's a place where you can enjoy a few drinks and unwind after a busy day at the office. It's quite a popular place for expats, being so close to Makati Avenue's night scene.

The restaurant offers rooftop barbecue, an all-you-can-eat Mongolian Buffet, bar chow and drinks for fun evening of music and laughs. I wouldn't label the restaurant a foodie haven that serves amazing, must-eat dishes - you come here to have a good time on top of the city. With the exception of the buffet, prices are reasonable and you are sure to have a fun time with live music and a lively night crowd.
