MY AUNTIE BETTY

MY AUNTIE BETTY | VIRGINIA FLOR AGBAYANI: HER LIFE AND WORKS | Scoop.it

"auntie/mama betty" is turning 90 in may.  we - her agbayani clan - are paying her tribute by gathering memories of her - of those who know her best:  we ourselves, her colleagues in education and the arts, her former students and, well, anybody whose life she may have touched (please feel free to contribute).

 

we hope we will begin to unveil to each other the multi-faceted persona of this inscrutable example of womanhood who - in  a first-person recounting of her visit to the mayan ruins - was kowtowed to (think tebowing : ) by the natives and acclaimed as a goddess.  her physical attributes certaily proclaim so:  tall and imposing in height, a chiseled profile, stern in visage and demeanor.  do we have a story here?  mayan calendar (google it if you have no inkling)?  2012?

 

now just to keep things light;  she is otherwise known to university of the philippines alumni as a "terror" on campus.  she was certainly that if that's what you needed.  to us, her family, she was simply "mama/auntie betty" who painted and loved "playing the piano" (to the uninitiated read:  playing with ivory tiles aka mahjong) - soft and caring beyond measure beneath that stone (goddess, remember?) exterior.

 

we love you, auntie betty!
