NATIONAL University proved it’s more than just Jaja Santiago’s team after the Lady Bulldogs completed a nine-game tournament sweep in a perfect run to the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference crown.

One of the other Lady Bulldogs who stood out in the feat was Fil-Japanese Risa Sato, who showed her versatility in being a valuable contributor on both ends for NU.

Known for her quick kills and solid blocks, Sato revealed a little more about herself when she showed what’s inside her bag for every game.

Turns out, what inside Sato’s bag is as versatile as her game, as she has different pouches for anything - from make-up to ‘kahit ano.’

“Ito make-up pouch (para) sa before game or (kapag) aalis,” she said giddily. 

“Kahit ano pouch, contact lens, solution at ano tawag sa ganun?” Sato asked as she acted like she was cutting her nails. “Nailcutter.”  

Sato, though, saved the best part of what’s in her gym bag for last.

“Tsaka ito, my favorite ko, saging. Before game, kain ako saging,” said Sato.

Check out all the other game basics Sato has inside her bag.
