Betty Go Belmonte station


Voice over the speakers in the LRT: “Approaching Betty Go Belmonte station; Paparating na sa Betty Go Belmonte station

And then I stifle a laugh. I always suppress a laugh when I hear that name, Betty Go Belmonte, (hahahahahhaah!) sounds so funny to me. Betty Go Belmonte. In my mind I see a filthy rich, little old Betty, in a flamboyant dress with flashy jewelry and shoes and thick makeup. A little creature with her own eccentricities scurrying here and there trying to appear busy. Maybe she was a really important person, no? To be named after a train station, that’s something, right? Heck, why do I even assume that she’s dead? She might be alive and kicking for all I know.

Oh, enough blabbering.

Betty Go Belmonte. (Hahahaha!). Betty go..betty boop go…Betty go belmonte…

Duh.

Why is it that everybody seems to know who Betty Go Belmonte and I don’t? I thought she was a couple of lifetimes ago but she lived in my years of existence and I didn’t know her? Sheez.

Now I know who Betty Go Belmonte is. And I sooo love the woman now. Thank you “anonymous” are for giving me that page re the good Betty Go Belmonte. I’ll try my best not to laugh when I hear her name being announced. Promise. You could tell me who you are so I could love you more too. :p

Imagine-in mo kung ganito:

Arriving at Dr. Wilbur Don B***** Duque station. paparating na sa Dr. Wilbur Don B***** Duque station. Malay mo, famous ka na nun. =)

Now how does all this naming ang renaming all work. Is it ala the "Gokongwei school of business" P700M route, or is it more of a "snap of a finger, flick or a wrist" kind of thing? I guess finding out if the station is somewhere in qc would add a tilt to my guess. But to tell y'all the truth, I'm not really sure if I'd like to know a big contribution was given to the LRT system unless I knew where it all went.

gasc(aw)nyk....what's that? what's a simian? the only simian i know is a simian crease.

anonymous na alam ko si cheriza panget ka, nasa quezon city. along aurora blvd. yung station before cubao station..~paparating na sa araneta cubao.

anonymous 2. i don't know how they name them. well most stations are named by the main thoroughfare they are located near to, like for example, V.Mapa station, Recto Station, etc. etc. hmmm, how'd betty go belmonte get into the picture? nevermind, i so love the woman now. we need more people like her, don't ya think?

To All:
 

for your information, it was "BOSTON STATION" before it was named to the "BETTY GO BELMONTE STATION" , the name of Q.C. Mayor's wife.

Nakikita ko na ito noong 1998-99 nang ginagawa pa ito by Hanjin Construction Group along Aurora Blvd near Boston Street.


Pero nang matapos ang EDSA dos(kuno) at isa nga si Feliciano Belmonte sa mga bida ng "pipols pawer tu", kuno!
Bigla na lang nagbago ang original plan na "Boston LRT-2 Station"


Magkano kaya ang pakimkim este "donation" kuno???

Nababago talaga ang kasaysayan lalo na't may pera ang gustong magpabago.
