My name is Roy Eric P. Pingol, I was born on a warm, sunny day in April 25, 1985 in Manila, Philippines, and now I’m living here in Oakland, California.

And also I have a sweet, loving, caring and understanding girlfriend that I love very much with all of me. I met her in my first work at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco on summer of 2006. That was my happiest day of my life and we’ve been together thru thick and thin for almost 2 years now and still going strong and loving each other. She is my inspiration for all things that I was...
