Love for Work in the Eyes of a Jolly Party Host and a Funny Elevator Girl9:54 PM
Love for work is something which people do not think and talk about as much as how much is earned from work. Given the very difficult economic times prevailing today and the financial obligations people have to meet each and every day, this reality is not difficult to understand. However, there are people who still manage to perform their work with so much love and gusto that people they meet cannot help but see the difference.
I first saw Zea during a chance encounter during the day that Jollibee Paseo de Sta. Rosa was giving away 100 pieces of free Amazing Aloha sandwiches to the public to signal its comeback. She was the one announcing to all passing by to line up to get their free sandwich. Even then, she looked so happy with what she was doing. Her positivity was so contagious, I couldn't help but feel good myself.
The next encounter was last week when my family was invited to attend a birthday party to be held at the same Jollibee branch. There, Zea was the party host. This time I had a longer chance to observe how she performs her work . That party proved to be one of the most enjoyable ones I have attended with my kids primarily because of the way the party was guided by the host.
Zea was true to form as a Jollibee party host. She danced, conducted games, exchanged jokes with the guests, and happily "brought the house down". I have to say though that the family and guests of the celebrant did their part by gamely participating in all activities.
