Hard to find a more supportive PBA wife than Ping Exciminiano's better half

Mar 24, 2019

AS a wife of a PBA player, Elga Exciminiano not only shares the joy of victories and the pain of defeats, she has also built her life around her husband's career as a professional basketball player.

Married to Alaska guard Ping Exciminiano for seven years now, Elga has learned the ropes and mastered the intricacies of basketball, from the game itself to its lifestyle.

The mother of four shared to SPIN.ph during one of the Aces game in the PBA Philippine Cup at Cuneta Astrodome how like Ping, she would wake up early during game days and focus solely on the job at hand.

“Gising ako ng mga 7 a.m., kasi nagaasikaso rin ako ng kids, ihahatid namin sila sa school,” she said.

“Magluluto na ako sa morning, tapos sa pang lunch namin, then ihahanda ko na ang gamit niya [para sa game],” she added. “Favorite niya pakbet with galunggong, ampalaya, laging gulay. Hindi kami kumakain ng pork eh, para healthy.”

    The 31-year old businesswoman runs an online shop for luxury bags, but she makes sure that there won’t be any business transactions during game days that could distract her and Ping.

    “Actually may work ako pero pag may game si Ping, off ko na ‘yan,” she said. “Basta kapag may game hindi pwedeng hahaluan ko ‘yun ng trabaho.”

    Faced with a busy schedule juggling her duties as a mother, wife and businesswoman, Elga said it's all a matter of maintaining balance.

    She also revealed that Ping helps out in her business and sometimes becomes her delivery buddy.

    “Nahahati ko ‘yung oras ko kasi nasa bahay lang ako, tapos kapag magde-deliver ako kasama ko si Ping,” she said.

    “‘Yan kasi si Ping, simpleng tao lang ‘yan, joker din ‘yan kaya masaya lang kami kapag nasa bahay, minsan nga kapag may tampuhan kami mga one hour lang bati na kami,” she added.
