The Lady Eagles take their Happy Happy Heartstrong exploits to Japan.
After surviving a year that saw them bow out in a Finals series twice; in the UAAP Season 78 women's volleyball tournament and the 13th Shakey's V-League Collegiate Conference, the Ateneo Lady Eagles start the new year right by soaking in some Japanese culture ahead of season 79.
Fresh from their first leg of training in Thailand with head coach Tai Bundit, the volleybelles will mix some training with some fun in the Land of the Rising Sun, as their "Happy Happy Heartstrong" mantra dictates.
Here are the ladies presumably being their wacky selves.
And here they are teasing everyone with some nice Japanese treats.
And here we see Michelle Morente, Jules Samonte, and Jia Morado sporting some comfy-looking kimonos.
