“We’re very happy na nagiging choice nila kami maging muse sa isang big event like this. Masaya kami and thankful kami. Di lang kami ordinary volleyball players, pero kino-consider din yung beauty namin,” said Reyes.

Daquis, meanwhile, is just having a great time walking with Micek and with the defending Philippine Cup champs San Miguel.

“Masaya kami kasi naa-appreciate nila yung beauty ng mga volleyball players,” she said.

“Ganon talaga, champion muses for a champion team,” Daquis added with a smile.

Though the fans and the players had a great time seeing their volleyball idols walk side by side with PBA stars, it’s also a chance for the four to serve as ambassadors for their sport.

“It goes to show that sports is just one family and I’m really happy to see na nakikita na ng mga tao kung gaano ka-solid maging isang athlete,” said Valdez.
