After a photo of him driving a tricycle went viral last year, Eric Fructuoso has continued to share how proud and happy he is of living a provincial life in Cavite along with his non-showbiz wife Gian and their children. Aside from opening a motorcycle shop Gwapings Moto in Cavite last year, Eric started off the year with his new food business Gwapigs Porkchop which has multiple branches all over Metro Manila.
Last April 8, the 44-year-old actor, who was last seen in the TV series 24/7 last year, shared his thoughts on his simple life on his Instagram account. He wrote, “Wala po tayong magagarang sasakyan, walang mamahaling relo, walang mamahaling cellphone, o ano mang mamahaling materyal na kagamitan. Pero ang meron po tayo ay peace of mind, sipag, pakikisama sa kapwa, lakas ng loob, at tiwala at takot sa panginoon. Hindi tayo pwede maging selfish at hindi po tayo dapat matakot para sa mga pamilya natin kaya tira lang ng tira sa pagkakaitaan at negosyo. Hindi tayo pwede huminto para sa kanila.
“Hindi po natin kelangan ng sobra sobra, ang gusto lang po natin ay kumportableng buhay para sa ating pamilya

It has been more than two decades since Eric joined showbiz after being launched as part of the popular ‘90s teen group Gwapings along with Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jomari Yllana, and Jao Mapa. The group was part of the cast of long-running ‘90s ABS-CBN sitcom Palibhasa Lalake. Eric continues to juggle acting along with his businesses and family life. He was also part of Kapamilya series like Nasaan Ka Elisa?, Dugong Buhay, Apoy sa Dagat, and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
