Cover of the original MSS (manuscript)
This is a memorial that the author was once a missosologist.
This book, originally written and compiled in 1999 to celebrate the homecoming of Miss Universe First Runner-up Miriam Quiambao, was written when the author was still fourteen years old.
The author went on to become a historian.
In 2009, the manuscript was encoded for a tenth anniversary edition for limited distribution.
Today, 23 January 2016, after 42 years, a Filipina comes home again wearing the crown of Miss Universe, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
We are releasing again this book on this inspiring and beautiful day, along with the original scrapbook coming from different periodicals from that time that we had another homecoming that inspired the Filipinos just as well, seventeen years ago…
This is the story of Miriam Quiambao.
