Title: Ugly Eggs
Title: Unsolved Mystery
Ma. Margarita D. Maningat
Beautiful, uncommonly beautiful. (My first sight of her made me realize how inadequate my concept of beauty was.) In her beauty was coolness and warmth, cold fire. A siren's song that enticed and gave warning. And sureness, an easy self-possession, knowledge of herself that unravelled a little of the confidence in men. Yet predisposed to smiling, stilling apprehension, giving back in assurance what coin was taken of courage. A smile that promised wit, and connived with the intelligence that lay cat-like in her eyes. In her beauty, also, was innocence and age, a child's candor playing against a woman's will. Yet always with strength. Of character, of values, of conviction, of friendship. Strength that was gentle and firm.
My first impression of Ria. Arrived at through the process of observation, reasoning, intuition, instinct and magic...
... (where was I?)
Aegis 1991, Ateneo de Manila University Yearbook;
The 1st time I saw this was when I got my copy of the yearbook, about 2 years after we graduated. I didn't know what to think of it - is this someone's idea of a joke? How can I even take this seriously? Geez, if I knew someone felt this way about me, I might have married him right there and then!

I decided to give each of you a little something for your efforts, instead of giving away just one RAK (God knows I have more than enough scrap stuff). Let me know if you'll be at the March 8 fundraising event or at the March 15 Scrapbooks-Exchange EB. Mia, come back to Manila so I can give you a hug since I wasn't here when you last came home!
Thank you also to Wendy and Michelle who expressed their desire to join but, unfortunately, are not based in Manila -- sorry, shipping costs were not included in my original budget but who knows, maybe next time :(
