Apparently, they also have a cousin named Shakey.

What’s in a name? Well, for these siblings, it involves two juggernaut rival fast food chains. Twins Jollibee and McDonald Pangindian (yep, you heard that right) recently went viral after netizens took notice of their distinctively humorous names. “I wouldn't be surprised to know if their parents' name is Mang Inasal and Goldilocks,” one Twitter user wrote. 

The pair made rounds on social media after Mark Lester Andrei Cruzet, a family friend, proudly congratulated them on a Facebook post for recently graduating college. According to Mark, Jollibee and McDonald are the children of his former school paper adviser in elementary. His teacher, of whom he calls Ma’am Evelyn, had once recounted the reason behind her twins’ unconventional names.

As it turns out, the idea came from her husband who wanted his kids to have “unique” names that were also easy to remember. “Andiyan agad yung natutuwa sila at madali nilang matandaan name nila," Evelyn had explained. And boy, were she and her husband right about that if the slew of amused social media reactions are any indication.

Nicknamed Jolly and McDo by their friends and family, the two revealed that they also have a cousin named Shakey. But more than their family’s clear penchant for fast food chains, Mark sought out to highlight their generous hearts. The proud kuya revealed that he treats Jollibee and McDonald as his siblings after having received unconditional support from their family in his own time of need, whether it involved financial matters or he simply needed a home to stay in.

“I am grateful dahil alam kong bukod sa sarili kong pamilya, may iba pa akong kikilalaning pamilya sa ibang tahanan. I am blessed beyond measure for finding a family away from our home,” Mark wrote. “Love ko 'tong family na ito. Dahil sa kanila, bida ang saya.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
