While trying to figure out what else she could do to be more productive this pandemic, actress and top cosplayer Myrtle Sarrosa admitted to playing a massively popular strategy game with her “squad” in between online engagements as a TV star and product endorser.
In an online catch up over the weekend, the former PBB Teen Big winner and now Kapuso artist said that she’s back to gaming playing Ragnarok Mobile Eternal Love. In fact, she’s taking this hobby seriously that she even joined a Southeast Asian tournament. Her squad made it to the top 100 teams and she was also hailed as one of the top Filipino players.
“I played the game Ragnarok mobile in Triple App tapos nag-group leader din ako for the guild Exodiac. Thousands competed to be in the Top 600. It was the first time for a long time na maraming Filipina na nakapasok. I think I was the highestranking Filipina pero may mas mataas pa sa akin na Pinoy. Pero ka-guild ko din sila,” Myrtle shared during a zoom conference where she renewed her contract as Megasoft’s celebrity ambassador for the third time.
“I played together with teammates from Malaysia and Singapore... so ’yung guild namin was dalawang Filipino, tatlong Malaysians, tapos isang Singaporean. So, napalaban ’yong English ko,” she added in jest.
Myrtle said that 2020 may be a hard year, but she decided to channel her energy into different activities online where she excels.
“We’re glad that we have Myrtle as our celebrity endorser. Before the pandemic, we were doing school caravans and on-ground events. Now, we do it online. We reach out to students via online events with the help of Myrtle. She knows what she’s doing, techie kasi siya. We wouldn’t have executed our online events well without her assistance,” Megasoft Hygienic Products Inc.’s Aileen Choi Go told Manila Standard Entertainment in a virtual interview on Saturday.
Despite the pandemic, Myrtle and Megasoft persistently work hand-inhand in spreading the word on good hygiene to the youth through their online platforms. Before the community quarantine was enforced by the government, Megasoft was also able to do school tours. The last one, its 86th leg, was held at the Aranguren Integrated School in Capas, Tarlac.
Myrtle and Megasoft continue to forge their bond stronger. Myrtle was still a college student when she was first chosen by the company to represent its products for young females in 2016.
Four years later and having graduated with honors from the University of the Philippines, Myrtle continues to represent the brand. “Myrtle continues to exemplify the image of a smart and empowered woman. She strives to be the best in her field and at the same time is a good role model to females everywhere. We are proud to sign Myrtle once again,” Choi Go said adding that Myrtle’s renewal of contract came just in time for their 20th anniversary celebration next month.
