In 1991, MSC got the necessary permit to offer two-year courses in Office Management (OMC) and Computer Technology (CTC). In June of that year, classes for the two courses started with fifty (50) OMC and twenty-six (26) CTC students.

MSC at that time was occupying the second floor of the Jesusa building (on the first floor was Monte de Piedad Savings Bank) along A. Flores St. Its two classrooms had a capacity of 50 students only. MSC had to set morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate the new two-year course students totaling more than 70. Schedule for the short term course students were also set strategically so that there will be a classroom for each class. Saturday and evening classes were conducted.

It was drizzling so I had to head back to the office. On my way to the office, I saw a brightly colored creature fly. “I’ve never seen that bird before. Now, where did it go?” I scanned the branches of the trees and looked for movement but found no such bird. Something yellow caught my eye. Flutterby, I meant, butterfly! There’s a bright yellow butterfly sipping nectar from the white flowers, I thought.
The common name of Phalanta phalanta is Common Leopard.
Because of my height and the relative position of the lepidopteran, I can only see parts of it. The body is like that of a bumblebee, yellow with black bands. The lepidopteran is dominantly yellow. The basal part of the forewings and the hind wings are yellow with black markings. The top/ upper half of the forewings are mainly black with white markings.
