If he had his way, Park 88 restaurant owner and businessman Henson Wee would had last November 17, Monday, be just another business day. No plans to celebrate his 30th plus birth date (he does not want to reveal his age).  The main reason, he shared, his love of his life, Ethel, was not around as she is in Manila for personal matter. It is not complete without her, he said with little sadness. He is though thankful to God for another year and for the success of his business.


But friends started to call or text early that day to greet him. It prompted him to ask his Chef and kitchen staff late in the afternoon to prepare a sumptuous dinner to thank them. He started thereafter to call or text his greeters and his close friends to come over for an impromptu celebration of his birthday at Up North, Park 88’s newest dance and jazz bar. It’s a good thing his staff are well trained and competent to prepare sumptuous food for such an instant celebration.


Among those who came to greet him were NICA (National Intelligence Coordinating Agency) Director Al Limoso, Pep Talk columnist/business consultant Dante Corteza, Zamboanga Today Monch Follosco, Brigada Duro radio announcer Sai Cortez, businessman Tony Mas, couple Chester and Penny Tan, City Councilors Elong Natividad, Charlie Mariano, and VP Elago. He felt honored and grateful that friends and families remembered him on his natal day.


More happy birthdays to come, Henson.

Social Whirl learned Up North managed by yuppie and cute guy Aljon Mas, which opened last month, has skillful DJ’s that plays upbeat songs making the crowd move in the dance floor.
