Advance mag-isip! Lance Gokongwei mistakenly gets birthday greetings after profile pic change

Bilyonaryo Lance Gokongwei probably got puzzled after his new Facebook profile picture garnered dozens of birthday greetings.

On Monday, February 27, the president and CEO of the Gokongwei Group changed the photo of his Facebook page to one where he flashed his bright smile.

For some reason, netizens quickly assumed he’s turning a year older.

“Happy birthday” comments quickly flooded the Sagittarius businessman. Friends and close associates came to correct the misconception and commented that he’s not turning older until November 23.

“Nice profile photo! So good looking!,” one commenter said.


Birthday or not, Gokongwei definitely feels the love of fellow Pinoys.
