MANILA, Philippines – One of our national treasures is back in perfect condition.
On her Instagram, Liza Diño shared pictures of herself and partner Aiza Seguerra together with legendary tattoo artist Apo Whang-od in her home village of Buscalan, Kalinga.
Whang-od, who was revealed to be sick and bedridden weeks before, is shown to be apparently in the pink of health. In her pictures with the couple, she even wore make-up and a black Coco Martin shirt.
In one of the photos, Diño greeted Whang-od a happy 100th birthday and thanked her for her contributions to the indigenous arts.
“Happy 100th birthday Apo Whang-Od! Salamat sa inyong ambag sa sining at kultura ng Kalinga. Isa kang tunay na kayamanan ng ating bansa! (Ang groovy nya sa kanyang coco martin shirt!),” she wrote.
[Thank you for your contributions to the arts and culture of Kalinga. You really are a treasure of our country! (She looks groovy in her Coco Martin shirt!).]
In another photo, Diño said they plan on giving Whang-od a nebulizer to help cope with her illness.
“Weeks ago, nabalitaan din naming may sakit si Apo WhaNg-od and refuses to go to the hospital kaya we’re so happy to see Apo today feeling much, much better! Kailangan lang nIya ng nebulizer so we’re getting it for her,” she said.
[Weeks ago, we heard that Apo Whang-od was sick and refuses to go the hospital, that’s why we’re so happy to see Apo today feeling much, much better! She needs a nebulize so we’re getting it for her.]
Diño also shared a short video of her getting a tattoo from Whang-od herself.
