Cordillera, - Apo Whang-od, the world-renowned centenarian mambabatok of Kalinga has finally met her idol Coco Martin, the lead actor of Abs Cbn's teleserye "Ang Probinsyano". 

In a report by Abs, Apo Whang-od's dream of meeting her idol  came true as she was flown to Manila in a helicopter to meet Martin.

During their meeting, Martin wrapped his arm over Apo Whang-od's shoulder while they both smile in a photo shoot. 

Apo Whang-od was a huge fan of Martin and his hit TV series as discovered by National Youth Commission chair Aiza Sequerra and spouse Liza Dino during their visit to Kalinga last February. 

Whang-od has kept a collection of shirts and posters of Martin as show of her admiration to the actor and his TV series "Ang Probinsyano".

As an avid fan, she has said that she would love to inscribe a phyton or centipede tattoo on Martin's arm - a design that according to literature, is given to Kalinga warriors as a form of recognition for their courage and bravery.  

For many years, both foreign tourists and local celebrities has visited Whang-od's place in Kalinga to have a tattoo. 

The story of her has also been published in several news agencies in the country and last year, she was featured in an art exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada.
