Rediscovering love at Jollibee
First dates are crucial, but they don’t determine your fate. The second film “Second Chance at First Love” tells the story of Mico and Camille, who met when they were teenagers at a summer review class. They were polar opposites, but Mico mustered up the courage to ask Camille out on a date. He brought her to Jollibee, and even though it was a place they both loved, the two novice daters didn’t exactly hit it off. And so, after their dud of a first date, they went their separate ways. But destiny wasn’t done with them yet. Years later, they reunited. How exactly did their love story play out the second time around? You’ll have to watch the film to find out.
