It came as a surprise when I checked my Facebook and saw posts about Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach coming home, for the 2nd time since winning the title, enjoying her morning with orphan kids in one of the branches of the country’s number one fastfood chain. Didn’t know she was here.
The Miss Universe did not only drop by Jollibee, she also helped spread joy to 20 kids from an orphanage who were invited to a special Jollibee lunch party. And the Internet went frenzy.
In a viral video from Facebook, we can see a Pia getting crowned by an orphan kid. Sweet.
PIA WURTZBACH WINS ANOTHER CROWN. Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach is also crowned Queen of our hearts by Jollibee and kids at a party she hosted for the orphans of Manila’s ERMA Foundation at Jollibee’s Bautista cor. Buendia branch. #PiaWurtzbachMU2015 (Official)

And who wouldn’t love ‘THE Chickenjoy?” Even The Queen loves it.
Pia earlier revealed in a Buzzfeed Philippines interview that she’s a Jollibee fan, with the Chickenjoy as her favorite.
During the short program, Pia also imparted some life-lessons to the orphans of Manila’s ERMA Foundation during the simple program. “Importante na lagi tayong maging magalang sa mga nakakatanda sa atin, mag-aaral ng mabuti, at parating magdasal, lalo na bago kumain (It is important that we are respectful to our elders, study well, and always pray, especially before meals),” said Pia, addressing the children.
A symbol of hope and perseverance for Filipinos, Pia joined the local Binibining Pilipinas three times before winning the crown to represent the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant. Her victory ended a 63-year drought since the country last won the Miss Universe crown and brought jubilation among Filipinos here and abroad. For me, her characteristics and achievements make her a deserving Wonder Woman Who Wow!
As a special gift to the kids, Pia distributed Jollibee toys and gamely posed for photos with them.
I wish next time, it will be me posing for photo ops with Pia. I also love Chickenjoy, eh!
