Ateneo Blue Eagles on Lifestyle Asia's November Cover


I've been trying to conceal my excitement for weeks now and finally it's November! This is the first time that the entire team is placed on a cover spread of a magazine, but not just wearing ordinary basketball jerseys, this time in fine, black suits! How often do you see that?! I myself haven't seen most of my teammates wearing suits. In fact, for some, it was their first time to wear one. You'd be surprised that many of the members don't own a blazer, a pair of slacks or even a pair of black leather shoes! That's why the Lifestyle Asia staff was desperately looking for sponsors who can provide size 13 to 15 leather shoes, as well as extra extra large suits! That was only the first part.

The shooting day... We did the shoot at Fort Santiago in Intramuros. Why Intramuros? Well, you'll have to purchase the magazine to know why. It has something to do with Jose Rizal, our National hero who happens to be an Atenean as well. Anyway, we arrived in several batches after lunch time. We did our make up and hair in a closed air conditioned tent about 16 sq meters big, then we had to resort to creative ways of changing into our suits in the public park. Luckily it was not very sunny when we started but it was extremely humid. After a few hours, without any warning, the rain just poured and we all had to squeeze in that little tent together with all the staff, equipment and clothes. The rain was so strong that it was already flooding inside and the leaking through the edges. Some players, together with the photographers, were stranded between the large arcs of the Fort Santiago Gate. After about an hour, the rain finally stopped but there was not enough sunlight to finish the shoot. Some guys had to come back the following day to finish the shoot, it was really troublesome especially since it was exam week and we just won the championship, thus, a series of invitations. But I have to give due credit to the guys who did it again without complaining, Yuri, Bacon, Eric, Nico, Mike and Oping (I hope i didn't miss anyone). Overall, it was fun! The guys look great in suits, at least a fresh new look for a change!

Thanks to the Lifestyle Asia group, of course my dearest sister and her team who worked so hard to make this happen!

This is a bit out of place, but I'd like to share a link that I find very inspiring. Makes me proud to be his co-host! One of the greatest athletes in the world :) http://sports.espn.go.com/broadband/video/videopage?categoryId=2491554&brand=null&videoId=3669223&n8pe6c=2

Oh, and keep posted for an entry about our recent Boracay trip!

anna said...

You guys clean up good!!! hehe... Looks like it was a fun "glam" shoot for everyone. Or was there someone grumbling about how a tie was too constricting or that the makeup was too much?? LOL

Bora? What happened to the cruise?!

Anonymous said...

You all look so cuuuute. No, scratch that, you all look so mature in your black suits. You guys could give this generation's race of male models a run for their money! (:

Hi Chris,

Great! You're freatured at Lifestyle Asia Magazine...
I know that many people are reading that and this issue will surely be one of the most favorite. hehe!
I'd like to see the whole team in a "new look"...
BTW, why is it that only 50 passes are to be given away on "Be Hands On" (Hands on Manila) Book Launch? I'd like to be there though but I know think I be able to be there on time due to work... huhuhu...

Thanks for the updates anyways!
Good Job!!
Good Luck!
God Bless!

I've read that you love travelling and you went to Boracay a plenty of time,is it true that Salzberg your favourite destination when you travel??

Kudos! to you Mr. Tiu, i'm looking forward for you to write a full-lenght book.

It is quite obvious who is the handsomest and the most relaxed wearing black suit among the players. Hi,hi,hi... My eyes are set on only one. The TIU one. The TIUPERMAN!

gizelle said...

nice.. fOr sure yOu all lOOk great there.. i'll lOOk fOr a cOpy Of that.. i can't wait tO have One.. =)

tita kay said...

OMG! This is a lot better than my daughter's wish!!! She's hoping that the Blue Eagle Team be featured in MEG, her favorite teen mag. In fact, she even wrote the Meg editor about it.

This cover shoot is really something different for the team!!! What a brilliant idea. Good job, Cheryl!

I'm a big fan of Lifestyle Asia, my home and bluprint. I was also hoping that My Home will feature you and your brother's breathing space.

I know Lifestyle Asia loves to feature interesting people/families in groups. For a fan like me, I feel nuts for I didn't see this cover shoot coming (argh!) Sam, my little girl, kept that Lifestyle Asia spread with you on the cover 2 years ago (Eligible Bachelors and Bachelorettes). So, off I go to NBS, lest they run out of copies.

Thanks, Chris, for keeping us updated.

Everyone's looking forward to owning a copy of this month's edition of Lifestyle Asia.

Thanks for sharing your experience about the photo shoot. We hope you'll keep us posted of the latest about your life after UAAP.

God bless you Chris! Hope that Pacquiao will win the fight against Dela Hoya. =) We'll pray for him.

Ooh, this is great news, Chris. I'd get a copy of the magazine asap! I hope it's out already. Maybe second week of November pa? You all look like dashing bachelors even in that little picture on top of your entry. I had to use magnifying glass to zoom in the pic, you and Rabeh are like David & Goliath. Haha. It was unusual nga seeing your teammates in formal attires, but that's something new and fresh. Great job to the staff and to Cheryl.

Boracay trip? Where's the China Part 2? Haha. Forgotten? I'd still be glad to read anything from you, gladder if you'd be able to post both, and gladdest if there'd be more and a whole lot more! Haha.

Thanks for the updates as to where we could all catch you. Will try my best to be present during those said events.

By the way, you're a sure win at the Nick's, no doubt, though of course we'd all still continue voting.

The Ripley's episode the other night was superb, no, more like you were breathtaking. Haha. Seriously, you looked extremely handsome (use all the superlatives! haha) Kudos to your wardrobe consultant, he/she knows how to enhance your looks. And I think you look best without the eyeglasses. Just wear them at home like I do. Contact lenses rock! Haha.

Post more and more! It really brings joy to me whenever I check out your site and find out you've posted something new. It's like you're a storyteller and we all are the little kids listening to you (or reading your stories). I hope our comments bring joy to you as well.

I dearly miss the Chris Tiu in that blue Ateneo jersey #17 with deadly three-point shots and swift assist passes. How I wish I could still witness you play for the Ateneo even for one last time. You can always play for any other team/franchise, but it's a whole lot different playing for your Alma Mater. Aww.

God bless you, Chris.ü

i really dont know what to say. HAHA! anyway, you're all great. please keep posting entries for me to read other than harry potter and my school books. NIAHAHA! thanks for your time to keep this blog updated.

mary joyce galvan said...

Hi!

Just wanna ask if u will switch na "daw" to ABS-CBN? Is that true?

Hope to have a copy of that mag. Dami po kasi fees sa school eh. Sa November issue din po ba ng Chalk Mag eh cover po kayo? I mean, the Blue Eagles! Hehe! Chalk Mag lang po kasi binibili ko eh! :)

About naman po sa UAAP-NCAA All-Stars, kasama ka po ba sa maglalaro for that cause? :)

And lastly, (sorry for sooo many many questions!!) sa PCC naman po, kasama ka rin po ba dun? :)

Thanks! :)

I hope you will answer all of my questions. Di na po kasi ako updated sa Blue Eagles ngayon eh! :)

God bless Kuya Chris! :)

why black siuts nga pala? siguro mas naging bagay kung naka Barong Tagalog since sa Intramuros ang place.

try ko nga sya sa mga magazine stand kung meron na.

Nice shots you got there. Congratulations! I'll check that one out! The magazine, I mean. :)

nurse jane said...

I noticed that the rain is always present in times of the Eagle’s triumph…
I remember it was raining extremely hard when you won the Nike Summer League 2008…
It also rained after the UAAP championship game…
It rained during the bonfire…
And when Eagles posed for the “celebration” issue of Lifestyle Asia,
the rain is present too!
What a coincidence!^o~

rosse galvante said...

cool!
all of you look so great with those suits!

so nice to see you guys in formal attire.. although I'd have to say that chua looks like a big time businessman haha.. i wish there's a variation in the stance, you guys seem to be "walking with the right food forward" in the shot eh hehe. anyway I hope I can grab a copy asap =D

Angel Lee said...

I AM SO GOING TO BUY THAT MAGAZINE TOMORROW I SWEAR. OMG. That's awesome! Intramuros. I remember we did a Photoshoot there too. Too bad there's not much sun, but yey for awesome possum pictures! ^^

And OMG, BORACAY? GAH. You guys went to BORA? Haha. Sorry can't get over. GAH.

Wow, the black suit really suits you! I'm sure we'll be seeing you more in suit this time around...we'll miss you wearing your jersey! ^_^

camille said...

Cool! My mom never fails to buy LIfestyle Asia every month. Hopefully she buys her copy soon so I get to see it!:)

You guys clean up really well! It's so different compared to the basketball jerseys and the casual clothes I see you all wearing in school.

Anonymous said...

Nice picture. I didn't recognize Ryan! Just shows what a difference clothes make. You, of course, look great. My other idol, Nonoy, looked uncomfortable.
By the way, congratulations to the Eagles for winning in Dumaguete. Too bad you didn't play.
Saw a news item yesterday about Hapee Toothpaste negotiating with you for the PBL. Does this mean we will soon see you playing again?

bjing17 said...

Couldn't wait to get a copy of the mag so off I went to NBS and all the magazine stores in Araneta Center and Gateway last night. Unfortunately, i was told that the November issue is not yet out.

Lifestyle Asia's Circulation Dept. said that the mag was distributed initially in Ortigas. The other areas will follow. Because of the anticipation, I'm going to Shangri-la to get a copy. Can't wait to see you guys in your new look.
Let's see how the stylist made everyone look great!!!

dear anonymous, i gave credit to those players who had to come back the following day. The others were able to finish their part before it started to rain. And it wasn't my connection which got the team to the cover. Lifestyle Asia wanted to be the first magazine to put the team on the cover after the championship, with a different look!

toshi123 said...

Hey Chris! I loooove the cover of Lifestyle Asia! It's not everyday that you get to be in suits. All of you looked fantastic by just wearing those fab looking suits =) Kudos to the staff and crew of Lifestyle Asia! =)

I've just bought my copy and read the two articles related to the team....It sure did reveal some things about each player with all their struggles and successes in coming to terms with the play and keeping the best for the game and that of their QPI in Ateneo. Nice job man, it only signifies that all of you have brains to match your basketball skills...
MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO.

wow. nice. cool :)) after reading this entry just this morning, i rushed to the nearest bookstore! but, unfortunately, this month's issue of the Lifestyle Asia isn't out yet :( maybe i'd have to look for it in other outlets. ok, i will, i will :)
you all looked handsome! but you were the handsomest! :)) kudos to Ms. Cheryl & all the others who made this one possible :) looking forward to your Bora entry, and the China Part 2, don't forget! post pics please, plenty of them! :D thanks a lot for posting the events that you & the other eagles are going to be in. will surely find time to be there :) Chris, you're being missed a lot, like words can't even express :( hope to see you playing on the hard court again, soon, very soon! :)

CHAR:) said...

hi again chris. :) i'm so happy because i already have a copy of the mag. you guys were great! and your solo shots are wonderful.

i love the article about the blue eagles. especially the "No Pass, No Play". Kudos to the writer! i was inspired to study really really hard after reading that article. i'm proud of the blue eagles because you all still manage to have a QPI of 1.8 despite of the busy skeds, training, etc. even jobe. hehe. :))

i also bought a copy of chalk mag because the blue eagles poster was there. i was just disappointed because you're not in the poster. :( but anyway, i have your solo poster on the last last issue so its okay. :))

i hope to see you play again soon! take care.

ooh.. i can't wait to purchase that! it's kinda expensive and i think about 4 magazines are featuring you and the team! oh wow! my allowance would be spent on magazines this november! but it's gonna be all worth it! i'm collecting magazines featuring you guys! it will be something to look back to in the years to come.. it's not every year that the ateneo blue eagles become champions right? =)
you guys look soooo nice wearing suits! hahah.. and i miss you all! so every weekend i stay at home to watch replays of your games on studio 23! is ateneo going to release season 71 dvds? or championship book like in 2002?!

It's nice to have read a reply from you on a comment, you're not so busy huh. Haha.

Watched Pinoy Records today, you continue improving. Very good.

So, how did the Ateneo Grade School event turn out today? Were there many people? I wasn't able to be there because I had to run some errands. Aww. And I forgot to buy Lifestyle Asia! Ugh. I have also forgotten to vote for you at the Nick's. Now I feel I'm really getting older and I am starting to be forgetful. Lol! I'll make up for it! I'll vote till midnight! Haha.

I hope to hear more from you. Thank you, Chris. Wala lang, just wanted to thank you. Take care.ü

Hi Chris! I just thought that you may be interested to visit some booths at the World Trade Center on Nov 9. The exhbit showcase some food technologies from Taiwan which may be helpful to your Chinky Chicken business. Anyhow, I don't think you will be able to go because of your busy schedules...just fyi. take care always...

chris, do you know this certain JC Tiuseco? i've seen a pic of him with yuri and mike e. baka you know him also. he's a fellow atenean of yours i guess. is he the brother of cassy tiuseco, the former lady eagle? wala lang. thanks :)

patty:) said...

my bad, it's Cassy TiOseco pala :)) oh my, maybe they're not related to each other nga :))

cj said...

hey, i heard that you will play in the 2008 uaap vs ncaa game on the 16th. i really want to watch it live but everyone in our home are against it! so annoying! :(
why? because my cousin from australia will visit us on the 15th and we have a surprise party for her on the 16th! very wrong timing! tsk.
also, why ynares in pasig? its so far and not everyone knows that place. i might get lost daw! tsktsk!
after hearing that the game is on a sunday, i really felt that it was really for me to watch it live cause i have no class every monday. but,haay.
nweiz, i know that you will win the game! i already saw the line up and it was just a perfect one! haha
haay, i have no choice but to watch it on tv! sad. :(

Hi Chris nice to see u all guys covered on a magazine atleast they won't envy you and I'm pretty sure it will be bestselling especially for a lot of girl who idolized and dream of you.


Just want to say goodluck on your career as a host,businessman and a basketball player.Hope to see you soon on a hardcourt again.


Goodluck on your lovelife you and Clarisse are meant for each other.She's very kind and decent girl.I rily admire her patient toward some of your fans who really don't like her.We all know she doesn't deserve all of that so please take good care of her and love her trully.


Again tnx for being an inspiration to everyone and God bless.

Althy said...

I got a copy of the issue. It was a great issue. Reading about what you all had to go through. It was an awesome reading for me. Congratulations to you all.

angel 17 ^-^ said...

oh! lifestyle asia wanted to be the first to feature the team? does it mean there are still more to come?! hahah.. i hope so! i dragged my classmates to the mall yesterday but i haven't found a single copy of lifestyle asia november issue! only issues of october! ugh! i went to all the bookstores but they still haven't got it! too bad!

the blue eagles looked hot in black!!=)

tita kay said...

Chris,

I got a copy of Lifestyle Asia mag last week (Nov 6) and I can say that the write-up about the team and the pictures are amazing!!! You guys all looked great! Good job, Lifestyle Asia!

Apart from the cover spread which featured all 16 players,I particularly like the solo shots inside. With you being a photo shoot veteran, it came as no surprise that your pics came out really well.

As for the other guys, the solo shots of the following stood out: Yuri and Eric looked great in their solo pics; Ryan looked mature and restrained; Nico and Vince could be wardrobe models;
Rabeh knows how to flirt with the camera. His meaningful stare, i mean, his eyes are his best asset.

I can't help but mention Mike's solo shot. He definitely looks better when he loosens up (giggling), unlike his picture on the cover where he looked uncomfortable/
uneasy.

The other guys (Kirk, Justin, Zags, Oping, Jobe, Bacon and Nonoy) pulled it off really well, too. As usual, Jai looked like an altar boy who can't harm a fly.

Well done, guys! This is something that you can show your grandchildren in years to come.

Next year uli (in Barong Tagalog AND white bathrobes and fisherman's hat, Bora-look ha ha)

Jamaica said...

I do already have the lifestyle magazine. Nice pictures,,it was really cute. I do bought also the S magazine where you are also featured.

Jamaica said...

I really love jai reyes in that magazine,,,aaaayyyyy,,,

angel 17 ^-^ said...

oohh..i still haven't bought lifestyle asia! maybe on monday! but i managed to purchase people asia! then i would also buy the buzz and S magazines! i can't wait since a lot of people have been praising the mag! if only malls are still open at this time...

oh well, good luck chris! we miss you! i watched the ateneo-feu round 2 game earlier and i really miss the team! it was one of my favorite games! time flies so fast.. i really wish season 71 didn't end! and i hope there would be an ateneo-la salle 2008 teams dream game in the very near future! =)

mitch said...

I tried to buy a copy of Lifestyle Asia Magazine last Nov.15 but unfortunately can't find any in either sm fairview or robinsons novaliches. They say it's out of stock. I really want to have a copy of it. Hopefully, it's not too late.

mitch said...

I just got a copy of lifestyle asia when i went to the mall today. Honestly, i am not rich that's why the mag is a bit expensive for me but i still managed to have one. In fact i only had 200 pesos left in my wallet so i decided to buy it before it's too late. I'm happy about it...it's worth it. You look so cute chris, pang-model ka talaga! How i miss your billboard in espana!!! Sana ipost ulit yun dun ng hanford =)
