23rd B-day @ Fiama (July 19, 2008)



The last time I remember having a celebration with friends for my birthday was when I turned 16 years old. I still remember that we had it at the 5th floor in Discovery Suites in Ortigas right after watching an Ateneo - La Salle game. I was still in high school then. I never celebrated in the last couple of years because my birthday falls right smack in the middle of the UAAP season. I was supposed to have a party at home in 2006 but i remember having to cancel it on that same day because my grand mother passed away all of a sudden on my birthday. That was really a sad moment for our family!

I initially didn't plan to have a party this year but because of the way our games schedule opened up, I decided at the last minute to just do it! We played UP on Saturday then the next game would be against NU on Sunday of the following week, a pretty long lay-off! Perfect for us to unwind and just have fun without having to worry about practices, besides, we will have enough time to recover from the long night out.


At first, I was thinking of having separate dinner get-togethers for my different groups of friends: my high school barkada, Ateneo Management Engineering block, JTA-France group, basketball team, etc - and of course my dearest cousins. But since we don't exactly have the luxury of time for all, I just decided to have one big party that can accommodate everyone. And the easiest and most economical way would be to treat them to a classy, private bar/club called Fiama along Jupiter St. in Makati, where we can just hang-out, mingle, drink and enjoy the music. It was actually pretty cool because they blocked off the entire 2nd floor just for my party with a sign that said "Private Party for Chris Tiu". Although I didn't feel comfortable having that sign with my name around, it was practical for my guests. Because everything was last minute, i didn't have time to prepare a guest list and there were some gate crashers who just took advantage of the free flowing drinks and of course my beautiful guests! I mean, i don't mind if my friends brought along some of their other friends. But there was this group that was totally not connected with anyone in the party and was persistent in hanging around. In fact, they were asked to leave but they still came back upstairs! I didn't wanna cause any commotion so i just left it at that.

Because I sent invites very informally through text and yahoo groups just a day or two before the event, some just on the day itself, i wasn't exactly sure who would show up. I expected around a hundred people to attend but it seemed to me somewhere between 150 to 200 in total. I was so touched to see almost all my friends there from high school up to the present. Drinks were free for my guests, courtesy of myself, my dad and Fiama. But at around 1am when i saw a number of people i did not know in the crowd, we decided to stop the open bar and just shift to a cash bar instead. It looked to me like everyone was having fun, people were even "bringing in" their other friends which i didn't mind at all. At least I know they were enjoying! I think the news spread too fast that even some of the La Salle Archers' players showed up to my surprise! I invited TY Tang, whom everyone knows is one of my best friends, but he didn't even show up because of course the party was composed mostly of Atenean students and alumni, and he might not feel very comfortable knowing that he played and graduated from the Green side and I totally understand that! But what surprised me was that other non-invited Archers wanted to be labeled Blue... well at least for that night! :) So i openly welcomed the 4 of them in, together with their other friends :)

My friends told me that they had a great time and that we should do it again! I told them that it was my first time to have a party like this but i don't mind doing it again and again and again after we are crowned champions after the UAAP season! Hehe :) I like to thank all those who attended, with special mention to MVP for showing up as one of the earliest birds... I mean Eagles... haha corny! And of course thank you to our team manager Paolo Trillo for arranging everything and making it a successful night!

Check out this slideshow created by one of my best buddies Borly who was also the official photographer that night!

Awww, good to see you guys are still able to kick back and relax. And nice to see the rest of the Eagles out of their jerseys for a change!
I am really in awe of the way you and TY have maintained your friendship. Its hard enough with different schools and scheds (different blocks nga lang hard na!) but with the "blood" rivalry between the schools!!! You two apparently have a deep-rooted friendship to have withstood the taunts. I wonder though,if it was ever tested?
Fun pics. Cant wait to see more! Thanks for sharing your celebration with us. (Sayang you didnt invite all your readers! haha..)

And about your grandmother... :( that is so sad, especially since it was your birthday...

oh yeah, the 1st pic: was that a SPRITE? woah, I was actually expecting like uh, light alcohol or whatever. aww :)) haha! belated greetings! this is the 4th time I greeted you :))

P.S. Clarisse is REALLY pretty :) Looking forward for those pics :)

There was actually an acquaintance party sponsored by a dlsu org happening in the first floor while you were having your private party.

btw, Paulo Trillo is doing a wonderful job with Fiamma. we held our party there last year and the place was awesome.

belated happy birthday!

Hey chris! Do you have plans visiting Davao?? We, your fans here in Davao, are all wishing to see you here. Hope you can visit Ateneo de Davao. When can you have a game against the basketball players(esp. with your teammate before is like the "Team Captain") here in ADDU?? Hope to see you here!

hi chris. :) good to know you guys are having fun. and belated happy birthday again. if i only knew that you had your birthday party at Fiamma, i should've went there even though i'm not invited. joke. sayang naman TY wasn't able to come. just wondering, sino kaya yung mga archers na nagpunta? :D

can't wait to see more pictures. thanks for sharing what you had with us. good luck!

annie said...

wow... you had an open bar for 150 people. how much was it? buti na lang sponsored by your dad =)

bfrances said...

I hope to see you playing in one of your games.

This may sound weird, but I am from UP and who am I supporting in the UAAP? Haha. It's Ateneo Blue Eagles.

I'd rather be "BLUE" than green. :)

Bonne chance, Chris! :)

mjzl said...

ey chris! It was a great party. Thanks again for inviting us. We sure had lots of fun. :)

See you around! We'll continue supporting the blue eagles and you.

Take care! God bless! And, happy birthday again!

God bless in the year ahead!

-

happiness is hard to find when we seek it for ourselves,
but when we give it to others,
then it will find its way back to our hearts..

-

although i don't want to seem pretentious in saying this
and act like i know you well -
i'm pretty sure that you've made a lot of people happy, and smile
throughout these last 23 years. ;]

what i wish for you today
is a happy and fulfilled life,
with more blessings and success
in the years to come.

may you feel His love today,
in the faces of your loved ones and all the people around you.
may He continue to shower you with all the blessings that you deserve.

God bless you always,
and all the best!

happy birthday, chris. :)

Hi it's me again the girl who painted your face in her bedroom just call me London Princess.I am very happy b'coz you posted my comments in your blog I can't believe it and I really apreciate it thank you so much.I just want you to know that I have already finish my master degree in management and I'm coming home very soon.I'm just completiig my other requirements so I can come back in the Philippines.

I can't wait to see you in person and to watch your game live I am very excited. I graduated in St.Andrew University and believe it or not it is the same school where Prince William of England and her girlfriend kate Middleton had graduated.

See i don't know why my parents spend so much money for my college why didn't they've just gave it to the poor.It's very disgusting that my parents wasted so much money that I actually don't ask for.

By the way the reason why I hide my identity is b'coz I come from a well-known family and I don't want too. I am contented to be your anonymous fan and b'coz I don't want to have a complict with my parents.


A million thanks to you b'coz of what you have done to my life you chage me and you make me an independent woman. You are an angel that God send in many people that admire and adore


See you soon and take care always. Just to give you some clue of who really I am I'm 21 yrs old I was born on May 17 I went here in London when I was 15 with my yaya Loring who took care of me since I was born.Enough bye.........

i hope u throw a party for us, your die-hard fans...is that possible? pretty please...

I kinda laughed when I read about those archers. I believe LA Revilla was one of them because I know that Nico Salva is his best friend :) The initial reaction of the Ateneans there must`ve been fun to look at. Hahah. But it`s nice that you guys were able to get together on your birthday!

nurse jane said...

hi Chris!..I've read some of your interviews in the newspaper...
i really love the way you feel about the living condition here...
your desire to help the less fortunate...
your love to improve public education...
I can really sense that you care for the Filipinos...
Nice to hear those words from you...
You're a pure Chinese, right?...
But you have a Filipino heart! Chris Tiu para sa 2010! hehehe...
seriously, thanks for the concern!.. : )awwwww!

dollyxzh said...

good luck on your game..
i do hope to watch it live though..
but my schedule won't allow me too..

Hey Chris. Since your the guy who has Adidas as you outfitter, maybe you could request them to pull out/recall the latest shirts they released. It contains an error where they printed "Halikinu! Halikana!" at the back of the shirt near the nape. The "Halikana" is not part of the cheer and may sound disrespectful to some Ateneans and the Ateneo. Thank you and good luck in all the following games! OBF!!!

weirdo said...

Hey Chris! I'm not a fan or anything. I'm just curious... I just wanna ask you a question. How does it feel to be so overrated? I mean don't you feel bothered about not having much privacy? Also, do you feel bothered about having to watch your actions all the time?

Anonymous said...

Hi it's me again London Princees you know I am very very sad B'coz I'm afraid I may noy comeback to the Philippines nxt month.My parents call me last night and they want me to go to Paris to manage our restaurant there b'coz my sister who happens to be the manager will give birth her first child nxt month.


I am very depressed and I don't know what to do I waited this day for almost 6 years I really want to watch your game live badly but fate has brought me in this situation and i have no choice.


I can't believe it is happening to me I don't know I mean I am not a bad daughter when they ask me to study here in London I obey them see I sacrifice so much for them even the course that I've taken is there choice I really want to take Fine Arts but instead I've taken management.



I really don't know what to do sometimes I wish I am not rich I'd rather want to be poor I don't need wealth b'coz my parents ruining my life they treat me like a puppet.


By the way even if I will not able to come back in the Philippines I promise I will continue to support you no matter what happen I'm your loyal fan I guess it's too long.Take care God bless bye.........

kylie said...

sounds like fun! you look awesome, chris! good luck this season.

ps. well everybody WANTS to be blue, especially on a night for Chris Tiu! :)

nica said...

Wow! You shared your pics with us! Yey! THanx! =)

Even though I am a nobody, I will invite you on my birthday when I get back there in Philippines, just for fun! Im kidding alright :D

You gave me an idea. I might as well throw a BIG birthday bash next time! Hehe.. I want to party, party, party now! It's all your fault :p

My cousin got me a CHalk Mag with you in it. I cant wait for him to go back here in the states and give it to me. Oh, also a Meg mag too! The things you make us do Chris... !!! =) Haha!

Again, Happy Birthday! Guess there's nothing I could wish for you. Seems like you have it all! Ok, I'd just wish (and pray) you contentment in life. I read a lot about people having everything but still, they're not grateful for what they have. I know you're not one of them but you'd never know.

anyway...im still in shock..TY Tang is one of your bestfriends??oh my...this just proves that ateneo and lasalle's rivalry is only on court...

5footcarrot said...

Belated Happy Birthday, Chris! Thank you very much for sharing photos from your party. As you can see, your loyal readers really appreciate it :)

Re: the Ateneo-La Salle thing, I don't think it's that big a deal outside of the games. Like you, my best friend went to La Salle - and I have quite a few "green" relatives, too. While we may tease each other about what happened during the games/season, at the heart of it all the other person is a good friend or a member of the family and that's what's really important :)

Good luck against NU!

hey chris. be safe all the time. la lang. siguro naman nabalitaan mo yung nangyari kay mac baracael. take care always! :)

Helene said...

chris i was kinda enjoying reading your blog but well all of a sudden, I saw a news from the television.Marnel Baracael was shot after practice.Tsk tsk tsk. It made me sad.

I hope this has nothing to do with basketball. We all know that this guy is one of the key players of FEU which is also a strong contender for the trophy for this season.

UAAP hype is unbeatable but if this hype would cause physical injuries, its not worth it.I just hope that nobody would get hurt anymore.

Good luck with your next game.Sana all of you guys will be safe.

Anonymous said...

did you hear bout the feu player who get shot? they say hes in critical condition.....

Chris! Maybe you should get some bodyguards now... THe UAAP community's praying for Macmac Baracael's speedy recovery.

You take extra care now. As well as your team mates. GOD bless you all!

Hi it's me again London Princess I just want you to know that my flight for Paris is tomorow and it make me feel very sad and it's killing me.

But I have to go on with my life and my new career as the manager of our restaurant there.But don't worry maybe nxt year I might come back in the Philipines we cannot say what's gonna happen


I hope you can visit in Paris and I will be your tour guide promise. I wish and pray that someday I can see you in person and I will not give up on that b'coz I know it will happen I know.


I wish more success in your career and for your lovelife I know your very happy with your gf and as long as your happy that's what matter most for me.


God bless and soar high Chris........GO ATENEO ONE BIG FIGHT.....

Can I ask you to greet my friend who is a great fan of yours, even if she studies in UP? She's turning eighteen on August 9. So we (my friends and I) decided to ask you for a short video message, if it's okay. Sorry for the trouble.

nice pix...
good luck on your game tomorrow against the Bulldogs...
One BIG FIGHT!

kat said...

tush. uaap really has a lot of controversy these days. first the ids now the uniforms. i thought this was supposedly a basketball game not a dang circus. but anyway rules are rules but then it wouldn't have changed anything. ateneo still would have won. but i definitely have to agree with the consistency thing. i don't want that in the long run people would say that ateneo's playing biased games. which i know they would definitely not do. I hope those things will get settled in a nice orderly way. ateno ftw!

daph_freak said...

wow!!!!!!!!
you had a very nice party then?
i have some questions:

~are you pairing up with marian rivera?(that would be so eww!!hehehe...bad me...:))

~are you coming to davao anytime soon?

i'm waiting for your jersey to be available here ...
\hehehe...
nice party again!
good luck on your next game!
i'll be watching it now that i don't have exams to worry...

i'll pray for you and your team...
go!go!go! ATENEO!!!!!!

johanna said...

it's just so wonderful that you have created this blog wherein we,ur fans,are able to get a hold of you.
well of course i am also hoping that ADMU will grab the trophy this time.for sure that would mean so much to you since it's ur last year in UAAP.too bad that we are having a hard time finding tickets for the live game since were not even alumnus of any of the schools playing for UAAP.
btw realy had a hard time looking for that chalk mag where you and jv are on cover,but then the effort is worth it just by seeing you there(haha this is wat they call obsession!but of course it's your wisdom that we admire most)and yeah, of course i did not foget to grab a copy of meg's july issue as well.hope you will be featured there any time soon.we're looking forward for ur new show

Nice game against the Bulldogs! I was worried when you fouled Asoro. He was the one who hit you in the face. I was again sad with the bad calls of the referees.

Congrats! Hope to see the Blue Eagles in the finals! :D

..weeeeee....!!!!!king eagle..!!

..eto..birthday message poh..

this poem is for you kuya chris..

We are just ordinary girls..and you are such a star
Even we are so far..we love the way you are
And today is such a special day
So we wrote a poem so you'll know what we want to say

Teamwork, perseverance and determination
When you are in the court, you make some action
You put your head in all those games
And you are making your own big name

We such admire a great player like you!
A leader, a veteran named Chris Tiu
Pinoy Records is very lucky
For having a basketball cutie!

July is the UAAP opening season
Another year of hardcourt action
But for us fans, July's highlight is not the season
But the veteran's birthday celebration!

Happy Birthday King Eagle!
Play harder..soar higher!
This is Ateneo's year
We are all here to cheer

Every quarter is exciting
Every play is breath-taking
But it is the best when you are playing
Shooting threes and a lot of smiling

We are avid supporters of your team
Ateneo de Manila's making a winning routine
ADMU's unbeatable!
The determination is unstoppable!

Once again happy birthday!
That is the most important thing we want to say!
We are always here to support
We love you and your team, too!

..animo..!!one big fight..!!

err.. regarding that comment on chris friendster. haha just by looking at the way the reply was constructed, its so far from the way chris writes. Also, puro shortcut and barok stuff so that isnt him. he already mentioned rin naman na he has no other accounts. no facebook, multiply, friendster, myspace or whatever. lahat daw fake tlga. posers. haha

lara said...

Hey Chris! Congratulations! (the fifth time around) :DD Keep rockin' the court! And make more 3-point shots!

Btw, it's good seeing you smile at the camera. You're really becoming a showbiz personality. Haha. :D

Anyway, what are you're plans after studying for another year?? PLEASE. Comment back! :DD

Good luck on everything. :)

Mary Joyce Galvan said...

Hello Chris! Hehe! Share ko lang po sana 'to sa'yo kasi po...last saturday lang, I went to Ateneo for College Application Form, ask ko lang if super tahimik ng campus nyo? kasi tahimik po talaga.. :)
Hehe!

tootsieroll said...

Good Morning Chris! Is something wrong, I wonder? I noticed you haven't made a blog for a week now even after your game day. Hope your okay and you'll post a blog again.

Take care!

katherine said...

Hi Chris! I'm sorry for my comment last time. I know it was kind of harsh and a very bad comment. I never meant it to be that way. I really wish you'll always post blogs on your website. At least I could still hear from you straightly, not just from the newspapers or magazine articles.

I'm really don't know if you remember my comment but I just wanna say I'm really sorry.

Take Care!

reply ka naman sana ke london princess.

andun po ba sa party nio si ms. reese fernandez? sana po u'll answer. salamat:)

Hi Chris it's me London Princess I've watched your game against NU and it was really amazing on how you guys handle the game and the pressure espeacially you as their team captain.I am happy for you guys I know you work so hard for every game that you've won.


I am already here in Paris starting to manage our restaurant I find it very stressful but I'm getting used to it.The staff are very kind and easy to handle and they guide me. bBut sometimes I find it weird that a 21 yrs old like me is already a manager and my staff are 30 and above.


I've noticed that your not updating your blog lately but I undersand I know that your very buisy this week b'coz you have upcoming games on thursday and sunday against the two strong team UST and FEU.


I hope you will win your last 2 games in the first elimination round and just don't be too hard on your self you should also relax and rest.Unwind your self by going on a spa and have a massage to relax your mind and your body just a piece of advice.



Take care and stay cute and humble as you are right now and "live your life to ther fullest".
GO ATENEO! ONE BIG FIGHT! bye....

Hello Mr. Cris Tiu!
How are u?

You could actually edit the Date & Time of your post by changing the "Post Options", when editing a certain published post or making a very delayed post.
Maybe you already know this. This is just a suggestion. Kasi po dito sa post nyong "23rd B-day @ Fiama (July 19, 2008)" wherein you need to include the date of the event, you could just put "23rd B-day @ Fiama" by editing the date of your post to July 19, 2008 eventhough you made it in July 22, 2008. So yung lalabas sa published post mo is:
Tuesday, July 19, 2008
23rd B-day @ Fiama

You can find the "Post Options" in clicking Create / Edit Posts tab. When typing an article, you can find the "Post Options" just below the Typing box. The font is color blue actually.
You can e-mail me if you need more info about this.

We'll this is just a suggestion.
HUWAG MO NA LANG ITONG I-POST sa mga comments. Hindi ko rin kasi alam kung saan pwede magsuggest sa iyo.

Thank you for reading this thing. Hope this had helped you.

More Power!
Godspeed!

lara said...

SUPER nakakainis ang game between your team and FEU!! At first, I humbly thought that you would win the game, but the outcome was really saddening. :(

It's quite understandable in your part at the remaining seconds because of the PRESSURE. And everyone is counting on you.

Frankly speaking, this was not a good game. Hope to see more of you on your next games. :D

Chris,
Just a question, do you drink alcohol occasionally? Do you smoke? What usual alcoholic drink? if you are drinking.

Btw, as I see it, you had a good party with your friends. And another thing, who were the La Sallistas who attended your party? It is nice to hear that even though you are rivals you are still friends with them.

And another thing, what program are you taking right now? Because from what I heard you already graduated with BS Management Engineering as your Bachelor's Degree? And is it really difficult? Coz my friend is currently taking it and he said it was hard.

Anyway, have a nice day Chris!! Godbless!! Hope you answer my question.

Hi chris,

I just want to congratulate you for a job well done…
Watching you play on tv is really fun and nerve-wrecking experience… I always feel like I was at the venue cheering for you… hahahaha…
I was not into basketball before( unless I know the players) but I always hear your name whenever my brother and/or friends talk about the UAAP and when I watched your 1st) game with la salle, I already enjoyed watching you (together with salamat, buenafe and baclao)…
I just wish you Good luck on your next game/s… I always pray hard for you to win the championship…

Ps: Sana I/we (your fan/s) could watch you play and cheer for you live especially on the championship game…

Let’s declare to the Lord that ADMU team will be competing in the championship game, or if God permits, let them be the champions instead..

“to God be the Glory”
