  13. A little bit of history, Ms. Mely Tagasa was not the original choice to play the iconic Miss Tapia, the spinster cashier in Baltic and Co. in 1977. Actually, it was Ms. Moody Diaz. However, producers find that the latter is too old for the role and comic to portray a stern and unmarried lady. During the story conference , Ms Mely as one of the writers of the sitcom hurriedly went to the meet and arrange her hair in a bun. During the meet, as Bert de Leon was making a roll call of the cast, and Miss Tapia's name was called, all eyes gravitated to Ms. Mely. The rest is history. Mely Tagasa became Miss Tapia and vice versa.

  14. Ms. Mely Tagasa was a writer for radio, television and films. Among the scripts she penned were "Kastilyong Buhangin" (1981), "To Mama with Love" (1983), "Uhaw sa Pag-ibig" (1984) etc. all under the direction of the late Mario O'Hara.

  15. Miss Tapia's transition to becoming a college professor was also explained by Ms. Mely. Actually, the fictional character was created by Roni Santiago who has been running the comic strip since the 1970s in the Manila Bulletin. So, Ms. Tapia resigned from the Baltic and Co and went back to school to finish her masters and doctorate degrees. She entered Wanbol University in 1978 and became a terror professor most especially to the Escalera brothers. She mentored the witty but gullible Vitorio Ungasis in becoming a model student and later a college instructor. Miss Tapia went on to become dean of the iconic Wanbol University.
