    JAJA Santiago is unfazed as she prepares to see action in two commercial leagues.

    The national team middle blocker will play for Foton in the Philippine Super Liga and will suit up for her mother team National University in V-League.

    The two leagues’ schedules will again overlap, with the V-League firing off on May 22 and the PSL startin in June.

    "Ewan ko, nasanay na rin naman siguro ako maglaro sa dalawang liga," Santiago told Spin.ph.

    The 6-foot-5 NU star is not worried about getting exhausted, but is hoping to avoid injuries.

    "Kasi gaya last time may V-League tapos may PSL tapos may Under-23."

    "Siguro kailangan ko lang alagaan ang sarili ko kasi dalawa na liga ang pinaglalaruan ko, bawal ma-injure bawal ang anything na makakababa ng laro," she added.

    Although she is focused on the two tournaments, Jaja has some inspiration as she await the arrival of her niece with sister Dindin on her second trimester of pregnancy.

    "Syempre naman excited na ako maging tita," said Jaja. "Gusto ko na nga lumabas 'yung baby, gusto ko na mag-July kaagad eh. Pwede bang laktaw na ng buwan gusto ko na manganak 'yung ate ko."

    Jaja is also helping take care of her elder sister.

    "Ay oo, bawal talaga siya maglalabas at gumalaw ng mabigat. Mahigpit ako kay ate Din talaga."
