Blue Eagles in Boracay

The team spent the All Saints Day week end at Boracay as part of the series of celebrations after the championship. For some, it was their first time to step on the powder-like sand of Bora. Everyone was so excited. After winning the championship in the University Games in Dumaguete, they (I didn't join them in Dumaguete) flew back to Manila in the morning of the 31st of October then flew out again to Caticlan after a few hours of waiting in the airport. Most of the players didn't leave the domestic airport anymore. I met the guys in the airport then we flew together to Boracay courtesy of SEAir. We left in two batches.

Upon arriving in the Caticlan airport around 430pm, we were greeted by the hospitable staff of Discovery Shores, wearing their customized t-shirts "Discovery Shores welcomes the champs!" Then, all 30 of us (including some family members of the coaches and players) hopped in the sleek-white, air-conditioned private speed boat of the resort. The short 5-minute boat ride dropped us off the pier where we were picked up by the Discovery shuttles. For the first night, all the players (excluding Jobe who is missing in action, and Jai who followed the next day) were checked in Discovery. 3 players to a room. I was with Rabeh and Eric. And everyone was extremely impressed to see each room with a greeting posted just below the ceiling which says "Congratulations to the 2008 UAAP Champs!", not only that, each room also had their own Ateneo cookie, which i ate right away (see picture below). More than the iPod docks and flatscreen TVs in each room, what got the boys more excited were the white bath robes and fisherman's hat which they immediately wore out to the balcony right after settling in.

Overall, the trip was real fun! Weather was fantastic almost all throughout our stay except for the first night when it rained for a short while. I stayed in the resort most of the time to avoid the crowds in station 2. We saw various celebrities including Heart. Geoff, from the Amazing race also played volleyball with us. The Discovery beachfront was pretty festive as well with our noise and energy. We also played football and for the first time, i learned frisbee! That was fun! This trip will surely be remembered! Next stop for the team... Hong Kong and Macau! But that will have to wait :)

I didn't bring my own camera, so thank you to Bacon, Rissa, Coach Jon, and Rabeh/Ghen for the photos :) Please pardon the poor layout of the pictures. Don't really have much time to fix it up.

Hi. . i know that your vacation is very enjoyable. . I can see it by the pictures. . hehe. . I thought last All Saints Day you were busy, but i was wrong pala, you're enjoying pala with your team mates and its good for all of you naman, because all of you deserves it! For all of the hardwork, the practices, and for the pressure you really deserves a very relaxing vacation. But i hope kasama din ako. . hehe

Actually, this time i was watching ripleys! Honestly! No more lies! It's funny no? And actually, kanina my friends and i went to a mall and the reason why i came there is because i bought a magazine! You know what magazine it? Ofcoarse, Lifestyle Asia Magazine! Ateneo Blue Eagles in front eh. . Even though the magazine is slightly expensive and it is not on my budget this week i bought it na din. . hehe. . My sister said to me nga that i am a chris tiu adik. . which is i really mean it naman! And like i've said before, watching all of your shows and buying your magazines with your photos in front is my simple way of supporting you, actually all of you on the team! You really a big inspiration to us (your fans). Haiy! I got dramatic na tuloy. . hehe

Like i've said always thank you for insiping me!


Leanne said...

wow! a very nice and cool place. also, you guys really had fun :)

c16_c17 said...

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I've just got to know
Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?
Is it real or just another crush?
Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?
'Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away

Crush by David Archuleta

I hope you know him, everytime that i hear that song it always reminds me of you :)


chrissy said...

chris, did you guys went to gilly's island for some drinking?? :)

Rudy said...

something to think about...... I've always wondered why the winning uaap basketball team has to travel to so many places and spend so much money to celebrate. This is not specifically an ateneo issue, lasalle i think does the same. The question is who pays for all this travel expenses. Does the schools have a part of the budget allotted to this? If so, i think the universities are better served spending millions of pesos for these trips on scholarships rather than luxuries like this. If the boosters pay for it, then I think the teams can celebrate as much as they want. I'm not trying to stir things up but rather see what everyone's opinions are.

wow ang haba ng celebration, sarap naman!

Bonjour, M. Chris! :) Wow! I'm sure you had a wonderful time in Boracay.

When I saw the picture of the Ateneo cookie, I thought of it as a thoughtful way of congratulating your team. That is cool! I wished to bake that one, too. :)

I was able to read some articles about your team in Bora.

A la prochaine fois, M. Chris! :)

hi chris.. again crisel..[as if you know me personally haha!] great pics.. i've been waiting for your Boracay post and this is it..gulo nyo sa pool ha hehe..natakpan ka ni paolo..c: is that rissa nakpil? sexy ha..c: til now pala may hang-over pa din kayo ng pagkapanalo nyo ng championship sa uaap..hehe..
i just wanted to share something lang with you..this is not related to your Bora post..hehe..but i hope you'll still read this..okay..let me begin..[sana hindi ka makatulog sa pagbabasa hehe..]
you know, before..i didn't know that you exist. i mean..i didn't expect to know you kahit na nanunuod ako ng uaap since season ka nun time na yun kasi you were in france that time right? you didn't able to play..but i've seen you play na din i think that was season 70..i can't remember na sorry..basta yun..i was watching then, last minute ata or last quarter pinasok ka then you made a 3-point shot..PASOK! [..CHRIS TIU 3!!!...] i think it was ADMU-DLSU game..
i can't remember if you won in that game haha!! [memory gap na ito!] so ayun..last year, i wasn't able to watch uaap that much..puro "pahapyaw" lang yun nuod ko nun..but i saw how JC INTAL cried when you lose to's very rare to see a guy who cries..sobrang naawa ako nun kay was a very dissapointing year for him..sabi ko nga "kailan kaya magcha-champion ang ATENEO? maybe next year.." [and IT DID.] c:

basta..i didn't recognize you that much..kahit na nakikita na kita sa yun FIRST time na nuod ko ng PINOY episode na kasama mo si mac buko yun ginawa nyong bola..kulet nga eh pareho kayo #17 di ba? hehe.. ayun. then one night..i was watching sa GMA7 then pinakita yun teaser ng PR..tapos i saw you again..parang may naramdaman akong kakaiba. i can't explain the feeling. basta all i can remember..was i just said to myself that "ay..ang cute pala ni chris tiu..." c: ayun. that night [to be exact JULY. 29, 2008..huwaw! imagine natandaan ko pa yun?! teehee..] i started to like you na..c: then, i watched uaap last july 31..actually, wala ako balak manuod ng uaap nun, eh may laban pala i watched. too didn't turned well kasi natalo kayo ng FEU.. pero natuwa ako kasi kayo pala yun number #1 sa team standings..sabi ko "wow.. Ateneo ang nangunguna..impressive!" and that game was your first and last na talo.. c: galing kasi ni captain eh hehe..yikeee!

since then..hindi na kita nakalimutan. [yak! ang korni ko haha!] i even dreamed of you pa toured me daw sa ATENEO..and you know hospital na pinapasukan ko [specifically CHINESE GENERAL HOSPITAL here in Sta. Cruz Mla. alam mo ba itong hospital na ito?] everytime there's a patient/doctor na ang surname ay TIU..ako talaga ang naga-assist! haha! la lang..gusto ko lang..haaaai..thank you for inspiring me.. it's sad lang kasi next year there'll be no more CHRIS TIU playing in UAAP.. *sigh* [i don't want TIU to go..awwww..:c] you'll be missed.
oh well, i think this is a long post na..thanks for your precious time in reading my "LONG" post..hehe..[sana hindi ka nakatulog haha!]

goodluck on your studies and career! hope to see you in person..take care always and may God bless you and your family always...

"It is to be prayed that the mind be sound in a sound body. Ask for a brave soul that lacks the fear of death, which places the length of life last among nature's blessings, which is able to bear whatever kind of sufferings, does not know anger, lusts for nothing, and believes the hardships and savage labors of Hercules better than the satisfactions, feasts, and feather bed of an Eastern king."

will i really see you on pbl? :) how about in the uaap-ncaa all star games?

i wish our next family outing will be on bora so i can have a chance to experience going there. how many times have you been there anyways?

tinay :) said...

Wow, I was a kid when I last visited Bora. Haha! I'm turning 20 soon so that must be..almost 16 years ago? Haha. I've been to Hong Kong and Macau, China already. Hong Kong is nice for shopping, they offer cheap designer goods. I learned a little of Mandarin/Cantonese there c/o of our tour guide! haha. I think my trace of chinese blood helped me! :))

Maybe someday you can also visit Coron, Palawan. That place is really paradiso. :) Pearl Farm of Davao too. :)

Anonymous said...

hi chris tiu,
Wow...What a nice picture.The place is so beautiful i hope someday i can go there.Anyways,nice to hear that your wearing again a basketball uniform in the opening game of the pbl.Mas gusto kong pinapanood ka na naglalaro kasya pumasok ka sa showbiz at umarte sa isang pelikula dahil hindi bagay sa image mo and also hindi mo na kailangan mag artista dahil na sa'yo na ang lahat ng achievements na inaasam ng maraming kabataan at isa ka sa inspiration nila.Sana mabigyan ka ng show na about sa sports at ikaw yung nag iinterview sa guest or isang show na pang kabataan o kaya yspeak.

char said...

wow, it seems that you guys really had fun. :)) talagang winelcome kayo ng bongga ng staff ng discovery shores ah. for sure you'll miss you're teammates next year.

Hi Chris...
THe US elections had just culminated and the 2010 Philippine Elections is about to take flight, with Binay, tagged "PHILIPPINE OBAMA" declaring his interest in running for the Presidential POst. What's your general message for the Filipino youth who looked up to you for the coming elections? What are your plans for the elections though i've read you're not really seeing yourself to becoming more than a Brgy. kagawad. You don't have to post this one, i could not find ways to write you since i don't know your e-mail add. hehehe. By the way, I'm Ian, you can email me at Thanks. God Bless.

Hi Chris,

Ok this is a late comment.. =(
coz I was sick for the past few days that I can't even get out of my room... :(

Nice Bora Trip huh! Surely everyone enjoyed it a lot...
And surely this is not the last time that the team would unwind after a victorious championship game of the UAAP. More championship games awaits you guys! More "bonding moments" ... more "cookies" to eat haha..and more out-of-town and out-of-the-country trips!
I just hope that even if you graduate, you will still be there during the EAGLES' happy hours!

GoodLuck Chris...God Bless!


eien17 said...

Now I'm speechless
Over the edge
I'm just breathless
I never thought that I'd catch this
Lovebug again

Head over heels in the moment
I never thought that I'd get hit
By this lovebug again

I can't get your smile out of my mind
I think about your eyes all the time
You're beautiful but you don't even try
Modesty is just so hard to find

- some lines from LOVEBUG by Jonas Brothers ; thats what i felt when i first saw you..(well before i just see from afar but the first time i saw you malapitan whew!! Great!! One of the best moment in my life...)
-goodluck and GodBless!!

hi.. nice trip chris.. yOu guys really had fun.. =)

sabriaü said...

Finally, I was able to purchase my own copy of the Lifestyle Asia yesterday. Yay! The stories written inside are really touching, made me admire you and the Eagles all the more. Kudos to Bill Velasco for the wonderful articles.

I'm looking forward to watching you play ball again tomorrow for the UAAP NCAA All-Star Games. At least you're going to be with some of the Eagles again, and of course with Coach Norman and the other coaches.

May the best league win! Haha. But regardless of who'd end up victorious, it's for a good cause and that's the most important thing. You'd all be able to put smiles on children's faces.

Will watch Pinoy Records later.

Take care and Good luck for tomorrow (I'm quite certain you'll really play)ü


c16_c17 said...

hi..thanks for sharing your fun and adventure!

sabriaü said...

Ouch. All the while I thought you're gonna be playing today for the UAAP NCAA All-Star Games, but you'll not. Aww. Oh well, maybe because it's for the benefit of the Bantay Bata Foundation c/o ABS-CBN. I wish you were still permitted to play, though.

I hope there'll be a benefit game for the Kapuso Foundation as well. Haha.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you play again. I hope that time would come soon.

Anyway, just take care of yourself.ü

Kahit na hindi kayo nanalo, you guys did a great job.

Godbless and take care!

ainan said...

Eow! Mr. Tiu,

You look sexy on those black sando shirt and board shorts, you look enticing really.... Maybe, because i am conditioned to see you on a wholesome images. Nonetheless, its maybe a long series of vacation? next stop Hong Kong? Wow, you guys realy fortunate...

Btw! Is your Family the owner of Discovery Shores in BOra? coz i learned your clan owned the hotel in Ortigas?


patty:) said...

chris! i watched family feud. too bad you didn't win. sad also that you weren't with even one member of your immediate family, all of them are your cousins as you said. oh well, that's fine. for sure you enjoyed the experience :)

simplytoogood17 said...

Too bad you guys didn't win..... But you guys were awsome... konti nalang sana... hehe.... I already bought the mag and its terrific... I Love It!!!! I was so blessed to buy the very last copy.... Thanks God..... God bless Mr. Tiu!

Tina said...

Hi chris,, Just wanna ask if you know how to get a scholarship in ateneo. I want to study in Ateneo but it was so unfortunate that I can't afford the tuition fee. Hope you can reply to my comment. It would be a great help in my part. Thanks. And more power to you!

cariza said...

bakit hindi ka pa
nakakapaglagay ng bagong entry,,
gusto kong malaman
kung ikaw ung nanalo sa "kids choice awards"?

Wui said...

Chris, I know this comment may be off-topic but I don't know of any way to reach you.

One of my closest friends is celebrating her debut 2 weeks from now. I want to give her something memorable because it's her 18th birthday! And knowing that she's a big fan of you, I was wondering if it would be possible that you sign on a shirt: "Dear... Happy Bday!...". It would really mean alot to her. That's why I wanna ask where I could locate you during your free periods in Ateneo. Do e-mail me at Thanks so much

Hi Chris!
Super cute mo talaga!
Anyway, kahit di kayo pinalad manalo sa Family Feud, OK lang kasi you're such a good sport. At least ikaw yung naunang pumindot ng buzzer sa Sudden Death Round kaso lang hindi yung top 1 answer yung nasagot mo. At least you're so romantic sa sagot mo (flower). Hindi naman talaga namin inabangan if manalo kayo kasi IKAW talaga yung inabangan namin! Keep to be an inspiraton to everybody especially to the youth! Ciao!

i have read this article chris.

AALIS si Chris Tiu papuntang America sa Dec. 2 para mag-taping ng Pinoy Records episode at makapanood na rin nang live ng bakbakang Manny Pacquiao-Oscar dela Joya. May mga naiibang records ng mga Pinoy sa U.S. na pupuntahan ni Chris pa-ra ma-interview.

Samantala, bukas abangan sa Ripley’s Believe It Or Not ang mga kagila-gilalas na nagawa ng tao sa buong mundo na isasalaysay ni Chris.

happy trip, at ingat sa byahe!

hi. will you be at the Aliw Theater this coming Saturday, November 29 for the awarding? hope you can reply soon so i would know :)

gail said...

Kuya Chris, pwede bang humingi ng favor? Could you kindly greet my sister through email this November 27? Because it is her birthday and I'm sure it would really make her day if you'll greet her. I know you don't know her but she is really a big fan of yours. She watches all of your shows and guestings. Even bought a number of magazines where you are being featured. I hope I'm not taking much of your time. Here's the email address of my sister:
By the way, her name is Gia. I hope you'll grant my request Kuya Chris. Thank you! God speed.

patty:) said...

if i'm not mistaken, today's the San Beda vs. Ateneo game, right? but i just tuned in to studio 23 and they're not airing it, still the replay games of UAAP. aww. sadness.. :| haha. that's fine. i just hope you win and prove you're the best! :D

Hoh woh hoh, hoo hoo

When I was a child, the story would say
Somebody will sweep you off your feet some day
That's what I hoped would happen with you
More than you could know

I wanted to tell you that my heart's in your hands
I prayed for the day that I would get the chance
Just when I worked up the courage to try
Much to my surprise

You had somebody else, yeah
'Cause these feelings I keep to myself

I may never get to hold you so tight
I may never get to kiss you goodnight
I may never get to look deep in your eyes
Or so it seems

I always will be wishin' you were mine
I'll think about what could be all the time
All the happiness that I could find
Baby, a girl can dream

From the moment I wake up till I fall asleep
I imagine you're not with her but with me
Talkin' and laughin', sharin' our dreams
But it's just a fantasy

'Cause you have somebody else
'Cause these feelings I keep to myself, eh yeah

[Repeat CHORUS on the background]
I may never get to hold you
Baby, I'm wishing
Tonight, tonight, tonight
All the time

A girl can dream, it's true
And to call you my own
It's the sweetest dream I know

[Repeat CHORUS on the background]
So tight
No, no, no, never, ooh
Wishin' you were mine
Could be all the time


how i wish i cud be frend with you... anyha=)

myv said...


.just want to ask, what happen in the game between ateneo and san beda??:)

..hope you could answer..:)



angel 17 ^-^ said...

hey champ! congratz to the blue eagles for winning their 1st PCC game earlier! i managed to catch the 4th quarter! why were you not playing?? aren't you going to? yuri was there kasi so i was hoping you'd play too.. and after the game the commentator said na ateneo won even if you weren't there so i dunno if it means you weren't on the line up or just on that game.. well, i hope you'd still play! i miss seeing you wearing an ateneo jersey! i also realized that this was the first time i've seen the eagles play in since the championship! whoa! been 2 months already.. and you guys are also this year's defending champs so best of luck and keep up the good work! i hope you'll nail this one once again! miss you! you haven't been updating your blog lately.. =)
