Bon Fire (September 30, Bellarmine Field)

It was a pretty stressful day but very fulfilling nonetheless! I was already stressing out because I was running late for my 430pm interview with Jessica Soho, who was waiting for me at Moro Lorenzo. It was my first time to meet her. She is a very warm lady and asked intelligent questions. Immediately after the interview, I had to make sure that my Chinky Chickens was already being setup in the soaking and muddy Bellarmine field. Then, I arrived just in time for the mass at 6pm. Because we were seated in front, I didn't notice how the crowd was already starting to pile up. After the mass, Alingal Hall served as our safe haven allowing us to relax a bit and eat peacefully before storming out to the field. I was amazed to see the number of people who attended the grand event despite the weather, traffic and muddy conditions. Here are some of the highlights of the night, for me:

- I was given a citation to possibly be inducted into the Ateneo Hall of Fame. But, l'll still have to wait 20 years from now. I'll be 43 by then and with much less hair.

- I was shocked to see U.S. Ambassador Kenney, who normally prefers to remain very diplomatic regarding her choice of team. I guess she, too, believes that there is much reason to celebrate and that there is no need to hide her true feelings :) Moreover, she proudly wore the blue Ateneo jacket which Kirk and I handed to her a couple of weeks ago, and she even acknowledged that it was given to her by a "friend". I was touched.

- I was given the honor, together with co-captains Yuri and Nonoy, to light up the grand Bon Fire.

- We hardly realized it but we were signing and taking pictures for about 4 and a half hours. We ended at 230.

- I was informed that electricity kept fluctuating in the Chinky Chickens tent, which caused a shortage in production. Furthermore, we ran out of rice and styros at one point because they apparently lent hundreds to the nearby stall who didn't return them immediately. More stress!

- I signed my name on this guy's brief. Afterwards, he told me he had just won P1000 from a dare. He seemed to be a straight guy. Hilarious!

- It was 1:30 am, and it started to rain again. I stood up and saw the line, still about 50 meters. People were holding up their umbrellas. At 2:15 am, it was still raining, and still people were lining up with their umbrellas.

- I don't know exactly how long the waiting time is for those queuing. Coach Sandy overhears two people who had just come out of the tent saying: "Sulit na sulit ang hintay natin!" (It was all worth the wait.)

Those words said it all. Our efforts in signing and smiling were all worth it too even if we were extremely tired. In fact, I started getting all energetic again after midnight, maybe because I saw how we were able to put little smiles on their faces just by posing with them, signing posters, t-shirts and even body parts! We really appreciate everybody who came and supported the team all the way! It is really because of you people that move us to keep going and going until we can finally soar like an eagle.

WAHAHA funny entry, chris. loved the brief signing part. :))

bonfire was great! next year ulit! ;)

mikels said...

hey. I think the burning of wood with the green archers names written on it is a FOUL. Imagine seeing something like that having your name on it, what will you feel? Is that fun?

nica said...

Thanks for sharing that moment with us Chris! It's hard already not being there and thanks to you, I dont feel that bad anymore!

Im glad you and your mates enjoyed every moment of it. It's very cool that you and them stay connected to fans, esp Jai and Kirk. Pls send my regards to them as well.

It's also nice to know that your Chinky Chicken did well too. =)

I am happy we made it to the Bonfire last night. Sadly, the field was too muddy and the line was too darn long so we were too tired to wait in line... (snif!) So no "authograph" and photos to my son (who's ur #1 fan). Nevertheless, it was an experience I shall never forget!

Anna said...

This was my 3rd Blue Eagle bonfire. The first one was by the BEG and there was so much more room to move. LOL. Back then there was just beer and a pile of wood.

My son lined up for 2 hours and didnt complain about the muddy shoes and the long wait. He said the same thing when he proudly showed me his signed poster. "Mom, it was worth it!!!"

PS. I found it amusing to hear you sharing stories about how stressed out you were. Werent the Finals supposed to be more stressful? :-D

Congratulations Chris and continue writing! Your blog has been very entertaining, specially for us Pinoys in the US :)

It's nice to see that many people gathered and rejoice together!

Congrats again!
Godspeed!

Our feet got all muddy, but it was fun:) Fantastic fireworks display by the way. There were so many people! It was like combining grade school,high school and college fairs in one night!haha. Good job Chris!

RezzaC said...

The muddy Bell field kinda dampened (no pun intended) what could've been an even better celebration vs. the 1st bonfire in 2002. But it certainly didn't dampen the pride I felt seeing all those Ateneans converge (parang Edsa 2!) together that night!

Congrats to you and the team!

Leanne said...

Wow! :) It seems everybody had fun. It's alright to look messed up as long as you had put smile to people who were patiently waited for your autographs and pictures.

It’s a night that will always be remembered especially for you.:)

Have a great day! God bless you Chris!

Ingat..:)

Dear King Eagle,

We can hardly thank you enough for the happiness you brought us all. The inspiration that you shared is also too many to be counted. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

We are waiting with bated breath for your major decisions these days. As you see even though you are a very private person your life has been part of ours and as much as we want to respect your privacy we are eager to know more about you and to be closer to you. We know that your future is yours alone to determine with God but we pray Him and you to please consider your legions of fans in your decision making.

As you have noticed these past years your sorrows have become our sorrows too and your success have become ours too. We learn to love the things and persons you love without you loosing your dignity and honor. It is rare for us to have an 'idol' that is truly kind, humble yet class and royal. Most of all God-fearing and genuinely a man of faith.

As the drums of victory fades in our ears [but never in our hearts] we pray for you continuously to be blessed all the more. SOAR HIGH KING EAGLE. BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE NOT ONLY FOR YOUR WELL-BEING BUT ALSO FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE YOU BY GLANCING FROM AFAR.

CongraTIUlations! More TIUsday to come!

I'm very sorry. TIUnatics keep on inviting me to change religion and be a member of IGLESIA NI CHRIS-TIU but I politely declined because my spiritual director told me to remain a KATOLI-TIU for life and forever.

magi17 said...

ahahahaaaaa!!! rofl!!!

I really enjoyed reading this! Especially the part when a guy asked you to sign his brief. *and he's STRAIGHT* Thats really funny and quite flattering!

Waaa. Sana talaga I was able to go there! Hmph, wala kasing ganyan ganyan dito sa New Zealand! Even if there was, still there was no ATENEO and of course, NO CHRIS TIU!

Haha! Congrats again for everything!!! Take care!!


GOODLUCK SA FUTURE!

Congrats Chris,,everybody's hardwork paid off.. ^__^

fence sitter said...

Wow! I was there; I was near the stage. And I was able to take pictures.It was fun, and I am glad that other Ateneo teams also won the championship. My feet was covered with mud, and the campus looked like one big parking space when even the roads were blocked by cars wanting to go in and others who wanted to go home early. Some peple parked their cars outside the school and walked just to get in. But none of these really mattered. Everyone was out to party.

Ang galing mo mag-plugging ha! You made around three plugs. hehehe

Was supposed to buy at Chinky Chicken pero ubos na. (effective talaga ang plugging) hehehe

Kidding aside, it was a happy event for everyone. Well worth the mud and the traffic.

my kids and their friends were lined up for about 4 hours and they finally got in the tent at around 2am...and it is true, it was all worth the wait...they had so much fun that night in spite of the rain, walking my 5 year old all the way to xavier hall to use the washroom and having their feet inches deep in mud... our van was a sight to see the next morning...hahaha...my son joaquin was lucky cos he got a jersey for free, thanks to my cousin vinci of parkokya. :-) i'm glad to be a part of the ateneo community (thanks to my son and his dad)...i've never seen a group with this kind of team spirit, that sense of oneness was definitely in the air. i was so surprised, upon getting out of Gesu, to see a crowd that big, i thought i was in the eraserheads reunion concert all over again. hahaha.

thanks for signing my kids posters and smiling for the camera. i know how tired you guys must have been, but i'm sure that you also felt a certain high in making your fans and supporters, specially little kids, truly happy that evening.

congratulations to you and the team! we'll truly miss watching the games and your practices in moro. thank God for this win, and for an injury free season. we're proud of you guys, lets show them (specially those who are GREEN with envy who got a dose of their own medicine, or should i say, poison. haha) that we can win the crown again next year. ;-)

Animo Ateneo!
Mary, for you...AMDG!

Jamie said...

Heheheh nice dare!

Atenean said...

Its just sad how the names of La Salle players were written on the wood used for the bonfire. Dont get me wrong, I'm all for Ateneo but dont you think this rivalry thing has gotten too far? We already won. We didn't need to rub it in more. We should be the BETTER team. We are the better team.

NEIL said...

Chris,

I am not a Ateneo alummni, but my 8 year-old daughter happens to be your No. 1 fan. I had your No. 17 Ateneo jersey and every time you have a game, she waggle it and jump with loud voice screeming inside the room. She also happens to be your Assistant coach outside the court but in front of our TV and to the unexpected crowd in our neighbors.

Congratulations and good luck for a job well done !! CHAMPIONS !!

In behalf of my daughter, DAPHNE . . . thanks to being true man with good values and inspiration to the young kids.

Also, for the rest of the team . . MVP Rabeh Al-Hussini, Finals MVP Nonoy Baclao, Eric Salamat, Rookie of the Year Ryan Buenafe, Jai Reyes, Kirk Long, and other players, Coach Norman Black and the coaching staff..... Congratulations !! Good Luck !!

Neil

ian laput said...

I missed the event cause i was really caught up in my work-out until 9pm. Anyway, i lauded the Blue Eagles and the Ateneo Community for the victory that was really meant for the institution right from the start. It's a well-deserved ONE BIG FIGHT for everyone who loves sports and fair play. Congratulations CHRIS TIU and the rst of the Eagles!!!

arlene said...

so proud to be atenista..!

linktokrish said...

I was given a citation to possibly be inducted into the Ateneo Hall of Fame. But, l'll still have to wait 20 years from now. I'll be 43 by then and with much less hair. --- that's gonna be like looking forward to it along with one of your child's college graduation... bweheheheh.. I guess it's nice to have something priceless to look forward to in 20 years. You definitely deserve it!

bryanjay_12 said...

Hi Chris! That seemed to be a very exciting night. I wish I was there to take pictures and autographs with you and the team. Too bad I come from a different school..wuhuhuhuh….

zhee said...

I missed the Bon Fire! I wish I could let you sign the same white Ateneo jacket from Adidas you were wearing in one of your pictures here in your site (sigh)... Is it possible to have a part2?

marjie25 said...

Congrats for winning the championship. Some of my dlsu friends also went on your bonfire, however, we we're disappointed when we learned that some ateneans wrote the names of some of our la salle players on the bonfire wood. Is that true? If it is true, I don't think it was an educated act. As far as I can remember, we never celebrated championship that way. Congrats anyway. I'm still your fan!

hi chris.. congrats.. it was a successful night for all of us...

~ROcheLLe~ said...

BTW, I saw these a while ago at the mall.. and Luckily I saw a copy at one of the blog, and I am Thinkin to share with you since your god-fearing person.. ^_^ hope you like it.. here it goes:



“FOOTPRINTS”
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.
When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."


^_^ and wait, about your hosting.. really improved! ^_^ keep it up.. and don't be shy hehehe..

Hi Chris!
Wow, no comments yet.
I was one of those who braved the weather last Tiusday. The traffic was terrible going to Katipunan and we finally got to Belarmine field past 10 PM! My friends and I left our Makati office at around 7 PM. We joined the already long line but unfortunately didn't get to have our T-shirts signed because we had to go home na at 12 midnight (Cinderella kasi!). Anyways, just seeing you and the team made our day. We were also able to buy some t-shirts which already had your signatures printed, so pwede na rin. We wanted to have a picture taken with you but didn't get the chance. Doon na lang sana sa image mo na standee but it was gone. Somebody must have taken it home. Grabe!
Read yesterday that you won't be playing in the PBL. So, what are your plans? Hope you will always update this blog.

kryzzle ^-^ said...

the bonfire was definitely fun.. :) but it was really stressful because of the mud! haha. despite walking carefully, everyone had muddy shoes and sandals. the entire ateneo community converged just to see and congratulate the team for a WELL-DESERVED championship.

too bad we weren't able to stay late. but the feeling of just being in the bonfire event was exhilarating.

we'll definitely miss you next season. good luck in everything.

AMDG. :)

Hi chris,

the people attended the bonfire really means that you guys ROCk!!!
Different ages, different economic status was there to party. I was just so sad because i wasn't there, (me and my sister didn't know if it is open for the public or for atenean only).
This is long overdue but let me CONGRATULATE the whole team and coaching staff of the Blue Eagles. Wish you guys more championships to come hehehe!!!
Anyways, i wish to meet you in person so i could have a chance to ask for an authograph, so i can share it with my sisters and to my class (by the way im a public high school teacher).
Again congratulations and always ask GOD for HIS guidance in all the things and decisions you make...

GOD BLESS!!!

cheers

jC said...

The Blue Eagle bonfire was great except for the freakin' MUD which gravely soaked my feet! Garsh! If only I had known the scenario ahead of time, then I shouldn't have worn slippers! :(

after cleaning up our messy more so muddy feet, we forbade ourselves from stepping on the fields.. that's basically y we didn't took all the courage to come up close to you guys.. haay..

nonetheless, the evening was great.. Loved the fireworks! ; )

hope there would be a "next time"..

hi =)
the field was really muddy, wasn't it?
i was sad that i wasn't able to get the team's autograph and take pictures with you guys because i had to go home already. i know i already have the team's autographs from last thursday at gesu but what can i say, garapal ako. xD
i hope the team does another event in which you guys can interact with the fans once more. and if this indeed happens, i trust that you'll inform us via this blog of yours! =)
thanks for the amazing season, chris. you have truly been unbelievable this season. i hope even after your graduation, you will continue to watch the games, because we will all miss you. sad at hindi kita maabutan sa ateneo. i do hope i pass the acet! =)
best of luck in your future endeavors. you are a remarkable person. :)

Hi Chris,

I wanted to congratulate you for the success of the bonfire held last TIUsday… It was a great experience for, I know, because this is you first (and sad to say the last) Bonfire you’d experience in your college career..
I feel sad that I wasn’t able to come, they say that it is ONLY for the ateneans and alumni.. but when I watched 24Oras that night, they say that it is OPEN FOR ALL. They even interviewed a gurl (with) his dog, who is a die-hard ateneo-fan.
**Sabi nga nila: asa huli ang pagsisisi**

But Anyways, I’m still happy for the entire team… it was the party that you guys really deserve… (bka pag andun ako, maiyak pa ko.) I’m very emotional that’s why…

I won’t make this long coz I know you have a very very short time to actually run-through our comments…

I just want to wish you luck Chris… and also, More Power to your “chinky Chicken” – great entrepreneur huh!!! You handle your business very well… And ATENEO will forever be proud of you!

JIMLY!
GodblEss!

yeah,that's true..you really were able to put smile on our faces just by the simple signing of posters and smiling on the camera by all of you..thanks!(=
it has been a memorable one for me!

atenista_ako said...

dear mr. tiu.

i think its unfair for you guys to put up the names of the players from other teams in the woods which you lighted during the bonfire. its classless and so arrogant. you already won the season, i think its too much. if its just for laughs, well i think its not funny at all. it went overboard. people say, la salle are sore losers, but with this act? how could they become the sore losers?

im a freshman and cheered loud and proud for the eagles but why the names of the archers on the wood used for the bonfire? :(

chris...more pics sa bonfire.
Super congrats again...
and may you have a fulfilled heart and a peaceful journey as you get out of the eagles nest.
Love you king eagle!
please do update about the team's latest tv guestings..
thank you!

Jen said...

hi, Chris! first of all, congrats to the Blue Eagles for winning this year's crown. :)

I have a question regarding the bonfire: is it true that the names of the Green Archers were painted on the woods that were burnt? a friend from La Salle sent me pictures showing such and since I didn't get to go near the bonfire because of all the mud, I am not sure of the authenticity of the pictures, although I really think they are fake. and since you mentioned that you lit up the bonfire, I might as well ask you. :)

Thanks!:) congrats again. :)

sahara14 said...

hahah i was one of those who stayed in line until around 2am, and when i was going to take a picture with you, the battery of my cam went empty...just my luck.

I just wanted to thank you guys for being so accommodating despite being tired. too bad i wasn't able to catch nico salva and ryan buenafe; they already left when i got to the tent.

good luck in all your endeavors and hope to see you in future bonfireS (perhaps next year??) :P

once again congrats and thank you for a very memorable season and stay in the ateneo :)

mommy j. said...

Chris, hi! I was with my husband and brother in law(both alums), and my 7-year-old daughter who just adores you. We even brought her to one of your games vs La Salle in Araneta and she was such a fan! This is her second Bon fire as her first one was in 2002 when she was a little over a year old. Unfortunately, she was only able to see you through the pictures I took while you were signing posters, etc. I wasn't even able to take a good one. The queue was just too long and it was already getting late, so i just made "silip" in the tent and hastily took shots. It took us one hour just trying to get in the campus and another half an hour to find parking. But nevertheless, as you stated in your blog, it was all worth it. Again, congratulations! And kudos to your parents for "producing" a fine son, like you; for instilling values that we, most parents wish for our kids to have. God bless you!

fe said...

i wish i was there...hmmmp...

you're so humble chris,,

liza said...

Hi Chris! We were among those who lined up to get the autographs of all the players and to think we waited for 6 hours just to finally get your signatures! Even if it was muddy, it was worth the wait. You must have been tired signing all those shirts and posters but we saw that you gladly did it for your supporters.
We were also able to sample your Chinky Chickens and it was good!
Hoping that next year we will still have another bonfire and you will be a happy spectator from the sidelines.
Good luck on your future plans!

Liza

Wow! The Bonfire seemed really fun. What a great way for you to celebrate your last year. Congratulations again Chris!:)

Hello! Chris,

It was nice reading this entry, i feel you, ican feel the erratic emotion of happiness you felt. The guy who took your autograph on his undies was hilarious but considering the thousand box, i might do the same.

Looks like the Chinky Chickens are making its way to the market, hope to see the stall in malls soon.

Congratulations! Mr. Tiu, you're so successfull, i'll go watch your interview at Jessica Soho's show.

Kudos!

The bon fire was great.
I'm looking forward to seeing you and be a friend.

I am just thinking on what course to take up (Of course, the school would probably be the Ateneo if and only if, I'll pass the ACET. Wish me luck. :)) and I'm hoping to hear your advice through a comment or if I'm lucky enough to have you sign on my blog, then that would be great.. Although, I know you're so busy. :D

I cogitate that this comment would be just like the any other comments.. So, yeah, my post ends here.
Again, congratulations! :)

Our efforts in signing and smiling were all worth it too even if we were extremely tired. In fact, I started getting all energetic again after midnight, maybe because I saw how we were able to put little smiles on their faces just by posing with them, signing posters, t-shirts and even body parts! We really appreciate everybody who came and supported the team all the way! It is really because of you people that move us to keep going and going until we can finally soar like an eagle.


-how I really wish I was one of them.:)))

Clarice said...

I absolutely loved the fireworks! :)

So apparently, my legs couldn't take standing for 3 hours straight, my left shoe was sort of...hardening 'cause I unknowingly stepped into deep mud (I thought I was still walking on that plastic thing) and my ride home was getting annoyed so I didn't get the team's autographs even if I was already halfway there. Boo. :(

My friend and I attempted to take at least one last glimpse of you guys before we left but the crowd was just so...big so we couldn't see you guys. We ended up seeing Coach Norman Black who we got a picture with. Haha! Masaya na kami dun. :)

Still hoping to get all of the players' autographs and pictures!
I need that sense of fulfillment.

I'll be bringing my Ateneo t-shirt and pentelpen wherever I go now. Who knows, I might see you guys somewhere :) (Yes, I'm that hopeful)

i got my pic taken with coach norman that night. he's a nice guy. :)

Cool! I am the first to comment! And I have just discovered your blog today! :)

Congratulations on your win! You and the team really deserve this championship. Seeing you guys play full of passion and drive is really inspiring, even to freshies like me. :)

I have read and seen everywhere about you and your great achievements, and for me, you are truly the ultimate role model of Ateneo. More than that, you are one of the humblest persons I have ever seen, and I deeply admire you for that. I hope I someday could live my dreams, too. :D

Not wanting to make this long, I just want to wish you all the very best in your future career, and whatever path you choose to take. Continue to inspire more people with your unwavering spirit and talent.

It's amazing how you find time to blog as well!

That guy signing your brief was really funny! :D

Go Ateneo!!
One Big Fight!

Wishing I also had an autograph,
Dess

uhmm. excuse me. i'd like to ask a question. i've seen several pictures on the internet about the bonfire held at AdMU last tuesday. the names of the players from DLSU were written in green on the wood burned. are those real? if they are, all i can say is those pictures offend the Lasallian community so much.

Cla Oyco said...

hahahahaha it's crazy how you guys are being treated...still can't help but feel really upset knowing that you won't be coming back next year though...=( oh well, TIME FOR THE NEW BREED OF EAGLES! God Bless you Chris Tiu! *amblis magbounce back eh noh? haha*

ms.tiu said...

hello chris.. ^^
i have observed that this year's team is so popular 'coz you guys have done a lot of guestings since the most waited win against dlsu.. (^^,)
i dunno y, other champion teams naman didn't had much tv guestings, but you guys, you really rocked the showbiz world.. haha!.. most especially you, you are already a "shining" star.. like when unang hirit visited ateneo (uhm, kahit sa gym lang).. haha!.. unfortunately, i wasn't able to catch that completely then because i had to attend my morning classes.. nevertheless, i know naman that i'll see you more nyan, and i hope even the rest of the team.. haha!.. best of luck to you!..

* May God bless you and your family always.. *

Hey Chris!! Belated Congratulations. I know this is already late cause you already celebrated your victory party in Fiama and the Bonfire is already done. But anyway, I still want to greet you congratulations. I was able to see the whole game 2. I went home early just to watch it and the UAAP awarding. I was so happy when you guys won. I was vying for Ateneo to bag the championship. It was really your time to shine and be the champion. Though it made me teary-eyed coz I know that it will be your last game for the UAAP. I won't be able see you again play for Team Ateneo which is really sad on my part.

Anyway, good luck on your career. I wouldn't be commenting on how the Archers played game 2. Haha:))

Congratulations to everyone!!

Take care. God bless!!:D

I went to the bonfire! It was so cool! :) My friends and I had a picture with your brother, Charles. :)) Funny story, actually. =)) Anyway, we actually lined up, although, it was getting late, so we had to go. :( It was really hard to leave the line! I was so depressed. :)) Until now, actually. My classmates are all talking about how they met all of you. It's really hard for me!

Anyway, congratulations to all of you and I hope to see you guys soon! :)

hey kuya chris!

grabe,the bonfire was awesome:D my friends and i stayed there until 1am. too bad we were not able to ask for the palyers' autographs and have our pictures taken since we can hardly move from the mud and we were sure there were a lot of people waiting in line too.

But we still had fun, and until now i still have a hang over from the bonfire.:)) the fireworks were also beautiful:D

i hope i'll still have another time to see you again..i'll really miss you play for Ateneo.:( it just struck me again when they showed the tribute for you and yuri that you both won't be play anymore next year.

anyway,thanks again for making my day/night complete last tiu's day.:D i can't wait for the next bonfire.:)

Congratulations again Chris!:) i reached the tent at around 2 and i can really say that everything was literally worth it!:) thanks for being nice despite the fact na super pagod ka na:) and you asked me pa if i was sleepy na!:) haha well anyway super kapagod but i had a blast!:) anyway God Bless and goodluck with your career!:)

Wohoooo! Sulit na sulit nga ang paghihintay sa pila! At sulit din ang paglalakad sa maputik na bel field nung gabing yun! :)

I got your signature at around 2 o'clock in the morning. (Good thing I have an umbrella with me when it started to rain) I wasn't able to get the signatures of Rabeh, Nico and Eric 'cause they already left..

Anyway, Congratulations!! :)

And thank you for the inspiration!

I had fun on those 13 Ateneo games I've watched this Season..:)

Uh, that's cool Chris. Keep it up! ;)

Reg said...

hi chris! buena mano! this is my second time to comment here and my first time to be the first on your list!yey!:) anyway, I was moved with this story written about you in inquirer. I think it was way back during your grade school days when you were sent overseas and the one thing that I will never forget was when you decided to just pray the rosary instead of watching an x rated film and because of that I really admire on how you were brought up by your parents, you turned out to be the ultimate dream guy.whoa!bigat nun!haha!:)pede na kita i consider na one of the jonas brothers padgating sa kasikatan!..you put smiles on a lot of people..basta continue inspiring the youth and one last thing may I ask what's so special about the number 17? I'm just curious.hope you'll find time to answer it.thanks! more power to you! God bless!

Congratulations for the successful Bonfire.

The Bon Fire was truly an experience to remember. Thousands of people braving the muddied field - eating, drinking, watching the show, going around the booths, lining up for your autographs, buying t-shirts, caps or jackets to remember the victory.

Fun! Something we should repeat next year. OBF!

hello Chris,

it's been a tough grind for our Blue Eagles and you've made it. congratulations and i wish you luck in your chosen career. anyway, while i was using multiply, i was shocked to see pictures of the bonfire with the last names of the dlsu players painted on it. i don't think ADMU will do that. were you able to see the pictures. thanks for the 5 years you sacrificed for us Chris. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!

bianca said...

Hello,
When will be your interview to Jessica Soho will be airing? Hehehe, la lang just asking of you don't mind. Anyways thanks for that autographed I got from you here in my blue pants, i really thank and appreciate it, you really are too humble. Hope to see you playing pba, during the next times and the following time. I was just wondering where Ken Barracoso is? Where is he? I haven't seen him playing in your team, and also, the article included in the Blue Blood magazine, with the title of, is that history? He's not part of it. Hope to see him next, and hope to see you season 72 supporting your team, and wearing your stripe. Good luck in the upcoming career, wish you all the best...

It was so tiring and stressful but it was so worth it! Just seeing you guys in person and having fun made my day! I don't even care about the mud anymore! Good Job Chris and We will miss you so so much!

And even though you'll have less hair by that time, we won't care! Kahit kulubot na okay lang!

THANK YOU CHRIS FOR THE WONDERFUL SEASON! WE LOVE YOU AND GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING!

CHRIS ROCKS MY SOCKS! WOOOHOOO! >:D<

Regina I. said...

Congrats once again! :) And although I wasn't able to get your autograph, I still want thank you for having the patience to sign hundreds of shirts and stuff for the fans. :) (Sorry na rin cause you guys really exhausted yourselves with all the signing)

We were in the line but we got out because my mom was already tired. I really hoped I could get your autograph and Yuri's as well during the Bonfire. But I wasn't. I was then haunted in my dreams, I kept seeing you and the whole team in my dreams and not being able to get your autograph!

Another day then, if I see you uh. Somewhere, I hope.

CONGRATS, THE BONFIRE WAS A BLAST!
(even if it was muddy and earthworms crawled up my slipper urgh. )

Let's do it again next year! :D

francine17 said...

The Bonfire sounds really fun. I heard all of my friends saying that the field was really muddy. :)

Good thing the Blue Eagles had fun doing it. You should do that more often. LOL :D

Is it true that some players of the Blue Eagles will be playing in the PBL for Hapee?

Hope to see you soon this coming Sembreak. :)

P.S. Do you have any plans leaving the country this October? Hope to hear from you. :)

bea said...

hi tiu.
congrats for the success of the bonfire party. :)
wish there would be a second time for those who didn't have the chance to catch the said event. (like me)
btw, my sister has questions about you that i(personally) can't answer at all. hehe
i know you're the only one who can answer it.
FIRST: why is it your jersey no. is 17? :)
SECOND: why you're not eating ice cream?
i hope you can answer and post short stories about those stuffs.
thanks. Godbless.


P.S. please don't accept the comment its too long to be put in your comment box. haha :)

hi Chris!

wasn't able to attend that bonfire celebration but at least we had a glimpse through that live streaming! :)

sakslover said...

Hi!

Kudos to the whole ADMU team for the 1st place spot sa UAAP basketball :) keep up the good work guys :)

but sadly, a lot of my friends, both from ateneo and la salle, are quite disappointed about the "green-archers'-names-written-on-the-
wood-sticks-which-were-used-for-the-
bonfire-event" thing. it's pretty uncool and as i read your blog, didn't you notice na nakasulat yung mga names ng dlsu players + even the other teams ata (i saw this picture wherein nakasulat pati fighting maroons) kasi di ba sabi mo isa ka sa naglight ng bonfire? sana naman next time di na maulit to :) hindi kasi magandang tingnan eh T_T

pero still, happy parin kami for your team :) it was a really good game and congratulations for your last year (tama ba?) sa team :)

marriel said...

hope you can react about the name of the archers on the pieces of woods burned at the bon fire.. to whoever thought of that.. it's really a rude idea.. bet it disappointed most ateneans...

kaia said...

Sigurado akong marami na sa inyo ang nakakita ng mga larawan o nakabasa ng mga naisulat tungkol sa nangyari sa Bonfire noong Martes. Hindi ko na ilalagay ang mga larawang ito at hindi na ko ikekwento ang mga pangyayari, dahil hahaba pa itong sinusulat ko. Gusto ko lang ilabas ang aking opinyon tungkol sa pangyayaring ito.

Unang-una, ang dami kong nabalitaan tungkol sa nangyari. May nabasa akong nagsasabi na gawa daw ito ng isang alumni na lasing at hindi naman ng administrasyon ng Ateneo. May nabasa rin akong nagsasabing hindi naman sa Bonfire mismo nangyari ito kundi sa High School. Hindi ko alam kung ano ang buong kuwento at kung saan ba talaga nangyari ito, pero ang alam ko at ang alam ng mga tao, nangyari ito, di bale na kung saan at kung sino ang mga nakakita.

Ang dami nang nasabi tungkol sa nangyari sa Bonfire. May mga opinyon na lumabas at salitang nabitawan mula sa magkabilang panig. May mga taong apektadong-apektado, may mga taong walang pakialam, may mga taong feeling cool at steady lang. Isa ako sa mga feeling cool. Hahaha!

Nakakalungkot na ang mga gawain ng isang tao ay nakakaapekto sa komunidad na ginagalawan niya. Masyado nang nasanay at nabulag ang lipunan sa mga stereotypes na ang opinyon, pagiisip, o mga aksyon ng isang tao ay nagiging indikasyon ng opinyon, pagiisip, at ugali ng grupong kasapi niya. Nasanay na ang lipunan natin sa pagkakahon ng tao na nagiging awtomatiko na ito. "Walang modo ang mga Atenista," sabi ng ibang taong nakakita ng mga nakakahiyang larawan. "Mandaraya ang mga Lasalista," sabi ng mga taong nakarinig ng balita tungkol sa pagpasok ng mga manlalarong hindi lehitimong maglaro sa UAAP. "Magnanakaw ang mga Pilipino," sabi ng ibang banygang nakakarinig ng balita tungkol sa pangungurakot ng gubyerno.

Hindi ako nagmamalinis. Inaamin ko, sa ibang nibel pinatulan ko rin ang kabilang kampo. Nagbitiw din siguro ang ng mararahas na salita tungkol sa kanila. Nanlait din ako ng mga tao sa kabilang kampo, nag-asar ng mga kaibigang galing sa berdeng dako, nagmura, nanigaw, nangantiyaw. Ako man din ay nakatanggap din ng mga insulto tungkol sa paaralan ko, ako man din ay nakatanggap ng mga kantiyaw, panlalait, at pang-aasar mula sa kabilang kampo. Aminin natin, lahat tayo nagawa na ito. Minsan sadya, minsan dahil nadadala lang tayo ng mga damdamin natin. Ngunit pagatapos ng laro, bagama't may mga taong dinadamdam ang mga pangyayari, ang karamihan satin ay nakakalimutan na ang mga nabitawan at natanggap na salita.

Pero matapos kong mabasa ang mga naisulat tungkol sa pangyayari at nakita ang mga larawan ng mga kahoy na may pangalan nila Maierhopia ('senya na, di ko talaga mapigilan sarili ko. hehe ;p), naisip ko... Sana pinagtuunan na lang natin ng pansin ang pagkapanalo natin imbis na pagtuunan ng pansin ang pagkatalo nila. Sana pinagtuunan na lang natin ng pansin ang pagbibigay pugay sa mga manlalarong nagbigay sa atin ng dahilan upang magdiwang at magsaya. Sana pinagdiwang na lang natin ang ating pagiging kampyon. Sana nagsaya na lang tayo (kahit na sobrang putik nung gabing yun at ang haba ng pila kaya hindi kami nakapagpa-autograp sa mga manlalaro), kaysa sa tapak-tapakan natin ang kalaban.

Ngunit sabi ng ng kapatid ko sa kaniyang blog, nagawa na eh. Tapos na. Hindi na nating mabubuo ang kahoy na inilagay doon. Abo na yun. Tapos na. Hindi na natin mababawi ang nakakahiyang nagawa "natin" sa komunidad ng mga Lasalista.

Ang nais ko lang, hindi ito maging basehan ng mga tao (Lasalista man o hindi) sa katauhan ng tunay na Atenista. Tulad rin ng hindi basehan ng pagkatao ng Lasalista ang pagbatok ni Salagado o ang pagsuntok ni Ilad noong nakaraang mga season.

Sa kabila ng lahat ng ito, hindi pa rin ako magdadalawang isip sabihin na masarap pa ring maging Atenista. At alam kong maraming agree sa akin jan. =D

Hey Chris!
I'm sorry If I wasn't able to come to the bonfire party.
By the way some La Sallites are angry because you placed the names of the players on the wood used the bonfire.

I was really hurt when they told that. :(

Anonymous said...

hi chris tiu,
CONGRATULATION!!!
I wasn' able to attend the bonfire last Tiu's day bcoz of my work.I have read in a news paper this morning that your team ateneo are no longer joining in the PBL why?Anyways,I,ve watched UMAGANG KAY GANDA yesterday all the players of DLSU are all present and they all happy but when ATENEO gueting in UMAGANG KAY GANDA are not all present only rabeh,jai,yuri and the 2 player i forgot there names are present but you are not guesting in abs-cbn they are one of the reason why you are well known bcoz of live telecast of the uaap in studio23.GOODLUCK to all your endeavorse.

*dapat pala pina-sign ko din shirt ko, kaya lang i hesitated since i was wearing it that night. haha :)) pero malupit yung nagpa-sign sa brief ah. :))

and YES, IT IS WORTH THE WAIT. :)

*feeling ko nga nag-form na ng capital letter 'S' yung backbone ko dahil sa scolio ko sa sobrang tagal ng pagkakatayo dahil lang sa paghihintay. :))

why were the names of the green archers on the wood sa bonfire? parang. ang sad.

atenista ako, but parang.
di ako na proud don. :(

Anonymous said...

I just want to comment about the bonfire.I think mr.mikels is right bcoz dlsu are already loose and it's already over why your fellow atenean do this kind of things.I hope that you and your team mates are not responsible for this things happened.

amanda said...

Guys, yes the firewood incident was true, but please don't blame all Ateneans (or Chris for that matter). Only one crazy Atenean was responsible for that. Most of us Ateneans feel embarrassed because of what he did. It was wrong and we know it

sunshinegirl said...

Hi Chris.

I was one of the last people who got to get your signature. Thank you for staying that late. I salute you and the players who stayed til the wee hours of the morning. Lakas ng ulan, maputik pero andyan pa rin kayo. I know you guys are so tired. Thank you talaga. :D

patty :) said...

at first i wanted to read all the comments here and see what other people have in mind to say, but hey, i just realized that i have to go to sleep already :)) i still wanna post my own comment nonetheless and just read the others' maybe tomorrow :D
really the Bonfire was only up to 2:3o? :)) i thought it was gonna last way beyond that :D
the citation thing sure is cool huh ;) for sure all of us are still your fans even after those 20 years and Chris Tiu w/ or w/o hair is still that same perfect and adorable guy :)
Ambassador Kenney is an Atenean at heart, it shows when she watches games :))
i don't know about the names of the archers written on the pieces of wood that were burned, haven't asked sis bout that. hmm.. but if that's really true, oh no, that's foul already. way too much. we shouldn't stoop down to their level, well if you know what i mean. that's really below the belt already if ever that's true. please be kind enough though to clarify this issue :|
sure, signing autographs and flashing a smile one after the other for more than 4 hours was all worth it for you guys! you brought so much joy to so many people, young and old alike. they and we have all stuck with you all throughout this season and even throughout the other painfully-concluded seasons, so it sure didn't hurt giving back to the community. gratitude is indeed the memory of the heart :D
of course your Chinky's a best-seller! everything and everyone associated with you is seen up there at the top sharing most likely the same success as you what you have ;)
the brief thing made me giggle :)) kinda weird but 'twas all part of the fun :D
those people really waited, patiently and eagerly at that, just to get their stuffs autographed by the Eagles and just to get your pics taken, despite the rains and everything else :) for sure after all the stress and mud and the long hours in line, they just felt fulfilled and super happy that finally at least a few of their dreams finally came true :)
you have placed countless smiles to so many people's faces, Chris, as well as your team mates :) you have made so many hearts pound uncontrollably with so much bliss :) and you have fulfilled the dreams of every Atenean and non-Atenean alike :)
thank you very much for everything! :) you are such a heaven-sent and you'll forever be remembered :) continue being our inspiration and the being epitome of what it's like to be perfect and what it's like be a true blue Atenean :)
you have definitely soared like an Eagle and may you continue doing so :)
May GOD Bless You all the more!ü

rona :) said...

huhu. kainggit! how i wish i was at the bonfire! :'(

anyway, is that for real? green archers' names were written on the burnt woods??? awe. (am a bit disappointed!) O_O

would you tell us some things about that if you don't mind. thanks.

I will miss watching you playing in UAAP Chris! :'(

Take care! God bless you ALWAYS! :)

torchbearer said...

RE: WOODEN PLANKS W ARCHERS' NAMES, ETC.

can we please put things in perspective here and not be so tight-assed about those wooden planks we burned at the bonfire?!! i mean, people, it was a celebration, for heaven's sake! the spirit of the evening was not like that of a political rally where effigies are burned out of anger and outrage!!! given that, consider the green archers and the 3 blind mice honored in that their names were set up in flames and sent up to the heavens as part of our thanksgiving celebration! think of them as a sacrificial offering for our future victories!

it's funny how big a deal is being made about the impropriety of this, but none on the green-bashing that was going on the entire night. isn't it precisely because it was all done in the spirit of jest and fun?

so, lighten up, guys! maierhofer and a fire don't necessarily mean eternal damnation for him and the likes of him, no matter how tempting. ;)

we lit that fire to chase away the demons of the so-called "dark ages"... to light up and usher in a new age of victories reminiscent of the glory days of the great forefathers of the blue eagles!

cheers!

Hi Chris! :)

too bad i wasn't able to go to the bonfire. i really feel sad.... :(


but there will be a next year, right? you guys will win the Championship again! haha.


but anyway, i'm just curious, what can you say about the Green Archers' names written on the wood? was that really intended or not?

I HOPE NOT. please.

I had fun last TIU'sday even if there's mud all over my shoes and we're all tired, it didn't matter already. Congratulations again! Thanks for a memorable season!


P.S. Chris, thanks for making TIU'sday extra special for me!:) so surreal! Thank YOU for making me (us) smile =D

hazel said...

hey chris...just wanna know what you think of those woods being burned, during your "bonfire night", which had the archers' name on it?I hate seeing the pix and the possibility that the ateneans did that..hope you'll be able to answer the people's comments on this..thanks.. God bless!

5footcarrot said...

Hey Chris! I just watched the bonfire program online and I must say I'm pretty glad I missed the mud :-p but also sad I missed celebrating with the rest of the Ateneo faithful.

Congratulations on your citation. My lola's brother is in the Ateneo Sports Hall of Fame so you'll be in good company once you get there, hahaha!

PS To all the people who have an issue with what was burned at the bonfire, you may wish to note that the team had no control over what that was. I'm also pretty sure potshots have been taken at Ateneo during the other side's celebrations. If not, well there's a new idea for you! :-p

angel said...

my dearest Chris Tiu,

First of all, congratulations you did the good job! and well done sa party ninyo! kaya lang. . .

what can you say when people said na Unfair daw yong game nyo? curious lang po ako dami kasi accusation about sa inyo lalo na dun sa BonFire, parang Binarang with 0rasy0n nyo ang mga players ng La Salle :(

i admit medyo naghihinayang ako sa ADMU:( sana naging wholesome yong Bonfire nyo :( tulad sa ibang Ateneo schools. . .

PEACE!

P.S sana ipost mu dito ang mga tanong ng mga tao. . . gusto kasi namin malaman yong side ninyo, ayaw kasi namin magjudge. . . makakabuti yan para hindi kau ma misinterpret ng ibang tao at mawala yong bias. . . hope it helps :)

-eyecatchy me0w me0w(=^_^=)

bluebloodedstar said...

no it wasn't the blue eagles who put the names of la salle players in the bonfire. it was apparently an alumnus..its really sad that he did that coz i saw the wood earlier that afternoon and it was just plain wood. im pretty sure chris and the ones who lighted the bonfire didnt see it too since the lighting of the bonfire came from another place before it went straight to the big pile of wood...

kathkath:) said...

hi again mr.tiu. .

hindi nakakasawang magbasa ng blog mo ha. . hehe :)

do you really play with the next season of PBL? kasi hindi ko alam kung anong channel pinapalabas un eh. . paki bigyan naman kami ng info about that. . pls :)

tonight oct3 there is a Studio 23 special titled "Fab 5: The Road to Glory" haha for sure i will watch that. . it includes the mythical 5 kaya papanuorin ko talaga kahit ang daming pressure sakin ngaun. . bcoz our finals is near huhu :(

you're really my inspiration :)

goodluck to you. . and to me na din hehe

hi sir!i really don't know how to call you. i just wanted to ask if you and yuri will still be going to Moro in the next days?i am really, really sad about what happened during the last few minutes ng pag-sign niyo ng autograph.

my friend is sick(until now) during the bonfire.pero pumunta pa rin siya to accompany me.but at around 1:45 am suobrang taas na ng lagnat niya and we have to leave. nasa side lang kami ng adidas booth and we were tring to get the autographs of the other players.so we decided to go to the end of the line.Jobe Nkemakolam went to there to sign some of the posters. my friend wanted to stay with me but i can't see her ng ganun yung kalagayan niya.

i really wanted to have a picture with you and yuri sana(because this is your last year). but i don't know where to look for you.I'll be leaving for australia soon and..oh..i just wanted and autograph =)

i hope you will reply to this msg.Thank you so much

Thank you, Chris, for being patient with all of the fans who wanted to get you signatures on their posters! :) And please extend our thanks to the rest of the team, too! :)

We were waiting in line for about four hours, and our feet were covered in mud, but we were so happy that we got to see you all. It was one of the happiest days of my life! :) Thanks so much and congratulations again!

bfrances said...

Hi Chris!

Bea, I'll try to answer your second question as to why Chris does not eat ice cream.

I read an article by Ricky Lo entitled "Body Talk with Chris Tiu" in the Philippine Star. It says there that Chris does not consume much dairy products because he's lactose intolerant. I hope that I have read it right.

I never thought that the party will lasr until the early morning. By the way, Alingal Hall housed Pathways to Higher Education Program before. The first office in that hall is very spacious that it was able to accommodate the program units of Pathways.

I also bought the UAAP issue of the Blue Blood and when I brought it to school, my friends could not help but borrow it. They even warned me that I'm a traitor to my school. Haha.

Anyway, I'm glad that despite the stressful disturbances in the Bel fied, you still enjoyed the entire event. I'll watch Jessica Soho's show tomorrow. :)

Abientot,
Ben Francis Rances

congratulations! you made every single freshie in ateneo very very happy :)

can you please clarify the bonfire wood with the players names? :| i really believe that Fr. Nebres would never allow such a thing to happen. i'm sure if you were the one to discuss this "issue" even lasallians would listen. i was way to far that night to actually see the bonfire wood and i can not defend my school from my lasallian friends because i do not really know the whole story.

thank you :)
