Random Appearances

This past week, I've been seeing myself a lot in the papers, magazines, ads, etc. Of course, the UAAP season is kicking off that's why we have all these press releases coming out. I'm slowly getting used to seeing my face around but until now i'm still not totally comfortable about it. I open up the Star on Sunday and I see my huge face that's like a whole page for CLEAR shampoo. Then, someone hands me a CHALK magazine and again I see my face together with JV Casio. As much as i hope you guys support that CHALK issue, my favorite teen magazine is still MEG! So I hope you guys will continue to support MEG all the way!! :)

5 months ago, I promised my good friend BOOM, who happens to be an analyst for the UAAP games and a DJ on Magic 89.9, that I will guest on his radio show but my schedule has been crazy and it was not until I bumped into Boom in the UAAP Press Conference last Monday that I will guest on his show before the UAAP opens. And I did! I have to admit that I was a bit nervous at the start of the show because it was only my 2nd time to do a live interview on radio, especially with a station that is widely-listened by citizens from various ages and classes. It was a great experience and I had lots of fun despite being asked very sensitive and intriguing questions :) I was also touched that some students from UST went all the way to the station to say hello :)

The following day (Friday), I didn't expect that I was going to appear on SIS to welcome my co-host Manny Pacquiao and congratulate him. Although I had many things lined up for the day, I rushed to the studio to make it to the show. And guess what, I arrived even later than Manny! My GMA manager Noel was already freaking out because they had to stretch the show which was way past its airing time. Finally i made it just in time for the last 2 gaps where I was told to sit beside Manny, Jinkee and their lovely baby Princess, to give a message to Manny and answer some questions from the hosts. I'm sure millions of Filipinos would love to be in my position and be able to congratulate the #1 Pound for Pound fighter in the universe today!

Btw, I was just offered to host another show for GMA7 but I don't think I can disclose it just yet. We're still trying to work around my schedule especially since UAAP is now on-going. I hope you guys will support my new show too, if ever! :)

Hi Chris! ^^

I was there a while ago, or yesterday, at the UAAP game! I'm soo dang proud of you guys. FLY HIGH EAGLES! Adrenaline rush I tell you. You guys played so well, and you most of all, whooping 26 points! WOW!

I actually saw your huge CLEAR poster round in Metrowalk, hehe, I was shocked. Oh yeah, 89.9 is situated around eastwood city right? Or I may be wrong. Haha. I wanted to go and see you but...well, work. I heard from my friend Meg it was really a nice interview! :)

I was telling my friend Meg (she's my constant UAAP buddy) how last year you were just a normal student/person, now you're all over the city, pictures and all, and I find it a bit weird. But hey, I think it's all good...^^ Many people would like to see more of you, especially now that it's your last year playing for ATENEO at the UAAP. It'll be sad next year. Dunno with others, but I'll be sad. It'll be different without you there.

And it's really cool you get to hang out with Pacman, he makes all Filipinos proud. I was shocked when I saw him at the ARANETA a while ago. But it was brilliant!

Anyway, I was blabbering. I just wanted to congratulate you on the fantastic job in the game. We'd be seeing you in the next games, good luck! And mind I hope you don't get hurt again, I was wincing when you were on the floor. Take care Chris! ^^

Nica said...

May I ask why Meg is your favorite mag? :D

About Chalk, my "cousin-in-law" is coming home to Philippines, I might ask him to buy me a Chalk mag. Hehe... I hope he would... So help me God.

Nica said...

I hope you accept the new show. If you already did, I hope the show will push through. =)

dex said...

I was able to get a copy of that newspaper and saw your whole page ad for CLEAR as well. You are definitely getting more and more popular, Chris.

ana said...

i saw another article on inquirer about your CLEAR shampoo endorsement too. and your hanford ad sa SM department store. i remember seeing pa a huge billboard of you and manny here in davao a few months ago. you're literally everywhere nga. :)

good luck on that show. sana matuloy.

anne^^ said...

Woah. You're going to have a new show in gma?! Haha. Sana matuloy yun..
I hope you accept it.

Good luck!

nurse jane said...

I was shocked when a guy (or maybe a gay) from the SiS audiences shouted out, "I LOVE YOU, CHRIS!!" Then you responded, "I LOVE YOU TOO!" haha! Celebrity huh?! hehe...^o~
Is that because of pressure,
knowing you're live on-air?...hehe...
I hope your sched will be pretty kind to give a slot to the offered show...
keep us updated with this issue, please?
God bless you more, Mr. TIU!...:)

jonessa said...

what's actually so amazing about all this hype about you is that you reamin so humble. i think that's the reason why people cannot get enough of you. i hope you stay that way.

and im happy to know you've been offered a new show by GMA...the Pinoy Records has had consistently high ratings when you were hosting it. hopefully, the new show will push through. definitely would love to see more of you.

Hi Chris,

'Hope you're doing great. It’s so nice to read another entry from you. Congrats sa game yesterday. A good start for you guys. :) I heard that you did a great job. Sad to say, I wasn't able to watch it on TV (we have a Filipino Channel here in Tpe) due to my duty.*Sigh*

Anyway, it’s really a random week for you. :) You have to do this, do that…rushing in… but surely you had a great time, right? It’s kind of a weird feeling ba seeing yourself in huge billboards, ads,etc.?everywhere? :)

Whatever that show would be, we'll support you all the way! :)

Have a blessed and wonderful day! :) Ingat palagi...


Leanne \m/

i know why your favorite teen magazine is MEG...

sunshine said...

hi chris!

I feel sori for my self coz, i wasn't able to hear you on the radio. I'm an avid listener of magic 89.9 esp. the show of Boom, and he's always mentioning(few months ago) that you're going to dropped by on their booth for an interview. But that's ok, although I wasn't able to hear you on air. I'm just so disappionted(huhuhu...sana my replay..hehehe)

regarding your billboards and posters, I always make sure that I'll take a glimpsed of those two print ads before going to school.

I would like to congraTIUlate you for winning sa meg teen choice award. You said that meg is your fav. mag., well,you made a right choice.

please don't forget to inform us about the new show that GMA offers you.

GOd Bless
GO ATENEO...ONE BIG FIGHT

jyl said...

i have been seeing your face pretty much everywhere lately! :D how about your billboards? have you seen them? how does it feel to see yourself on a huge board? :p

sharleein said...

I have a copy na ng CHALK mag. Yey! Ang bilis maubos eh. Naks. Sayang wala ka dun sa MEG july issue. Si kirk at simon yung andun eh. I do hope next issue andun ka. :) Hope you'll accept the new show.

tette said...

i was able to catch few of your random appearances...
i was able to tune in to 89.9 and hear a part of the interview (i was in the office during that time and i can't have my earphones glued to my ear for the whole interview) hahaha... you were greeting your family and friends and everyone :) when i tuned in...
i catched your appearance in SIS... when the hosts thanked you :)
i saw your billboard along NLEX last May when we went to Baguio...
YOU're really everywhere.... :)

simplytoogood17 said...

Super busy eh! We saw you at SM after your radio interview! Buti may free time ka pa kahit paano... Anyway, nun nagpapapic kami sayo, no words came out of my mouth!!! I was super starstrucked when I saw you! Buti, nalabas ko pa yun cellphone ko para mag papicture. Di tuloy ako nakapagpa-sign sayo... (sigh) Hope to bump in you again one time...

about the show pala, why don't you accept it!? madami fans mo matutuwa! super!


p.s. - kakapalan ko na muka ko, san ka madalas pumupunta na mall to hang-out? ^_^

k-ann said...

darn it. i missed the sis special! haha. and what bums me out more is the fact that i really wanted to go to magic to visit you! haha. actually, teary eyed na nga ako nun eh. kaka-inggit yung mga ust bio students who went there to drop by and say hello... waaa, kung wala lang talaga kaming quiz nun, i would have went there all the way from espana. haha! hmn. i guess, meron pa namang next time. :)

good luck sa upcoming games! and i hope you can squeeze that new show in your schedule... we would love to see more of you chris! so keep it up.

take care! :)

wow. you'll be hosting a new show on GMA? i'm so excited. i really hope you would consider doing a movie, kahit isa lang, with you as the lead. or perhaps, a TV series with a plot ala "Slam Dunk", the beasketball-inspired anime, that would really be a milestone on philippint televsion. i also want to see you acting kahit isang episode lang, perhaps a "Maynila" episode or a "Dear Friend" episode with Maxene Magalona as your leading lady. You 2 are hot Atenistas.

Hi chris,
i may be so so late but i wanted to congratulate you for the pilot episode of your new show in GMA (i.e. Ripleys Believe It or Not).
Usually I was asleep during that time (because i need to wake up early the next day) but last Monday night, I managed to set the alarm just to watch your new show(and gladly i did). (and i think i have to do that every Monday huh!) :)
But well congratulations!!!
I'm sure it'll last long...

Godbless and JIMLY!!!

ariane said...

Hi! I just want to congratulate you for a job well done last Monday, Aug. 18. I believe that was your first episode for the Ripley's believe it or not :) At first, I was natatawa because you were parang nabubulol but it was cute though and it made me laugh which was a good thing hehe anyway, I have one question lang, did you really eat those worms?????????????? :)
