THERE'S no place like home, they say.
Soon after finishing a very promising season in the PBA All-Filipino Cup, TnT guard Roger Ray Pogoy found himself in his hometown of Cebu, proposing to his longtime girlfriend Love Lynn Portes just two weeks into 2021.
On Monday night, the 28-year-old Tropang Giga star announced his engagement on Instragram, posting a photo of himself with his fiance, proudly showing off a ring.
"Thank you Lord! She said YES!" he said followed by a couple of heart emojis.
His proposal was held at a Cebu restaurant with a stunning view of the skyline. A few family and friends were seen invited to the surprise.
His great pal and former Far Eastern University teammate Joel Lee Yu posted a video clip of the sweet moment.
"God-centered + faithfulness + loyalty and commitment = a lifetime YES. Congrats @rrpogoy16 & ate @missloveportes," he said, tagging the couple.
Congratulatory messages and well wishes from his colleagues like Thirdy Ravena, Kevin Alas, Jericho Cruz, Gabe Norwood, Greg Slaughter among others later on flooded the comments section of Pogoy's IG post.
Pogoy earned praises as one of the nominees of the Best Player of the Conference awards where he finished third in votes.
