    DESPITE hurting over Petron’s upset loss in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix finals, there’s still a tinge of joy felt by Dindin Santiago-Manabat over Foton’s maiden title conquest.

    And that has something to do with younger sister Jaja Santiago.

    Only in her rookie year in the league, Jaja proved to be a vital cog in the Tornadoes’ run to the title that saw them dethrone Ate Dindin and the Blaze Spikers, 25-18, 25-18, 25-17, in their rubber match on Saturday at the Astrodome.

    The elder Santiago was naturally proud of what her sibling just achieved, never mind that the Blaze Spikers failed in their bid to win a third straight title.

    “Ok lang sa akin kapatid ko naman ‘yun eh, proud po ako kung nasaan man siya ngayon,” said Dindin, throwing a glance at Jaja while the Tornadoes celebrated in a rain of white confetti.

    “Dahil siguro mas madami pang dadating sa kanya, dahil alam kong tinatiyaga niya lahat, bawat hakbang niya alam ko na pinapanindigan niya,” she added.

    Although it was bitter loss for her and the Blaze Spikers, Dindin accepted the loss wholeheartedly.

    “Masaya naman po kami kahit second place lang po kami, Hindi lang kinaya,” the elder Santiago said.
