The Philippine women's volleyball squad in the 2018 Asian Games just absorbed its second defeat in as many outings.

After getting pummelled by Japan in straight sets yesterday following a similar loss to Thailand, the ladies are left reeling.

Don't tell that to back-up setter Jia Morado, though.

The multi-awarded playmaker from Creamline and Ateneo received another pleasant surprise from her longtime boyfriend Miguel de Guzman while in Indonesia. 

After flying out to Indonesia to support Jia and the squad, de Guzman had another ace up his sleeve. 

Let Morado herself get you up to speed.

Nootsara Tomkom of Thailand is Jia's idol, and while getting an autograph is the least of her worries, de Guzman went right ahead and helped her fulfill a dream, with a "gold medal" to boot.

Say what you want, but Morado is already a winner.
