Merry Christmas!! :)

I've just read through the comments section of the last entry and I think it's about time i write another entry to update you and all try to answer some questions :)

Again I apologize for disappearing for a while. I think the title of this entry explains it all. I just got back from a very short trip to Hong Kong / Macau with the Ateneo team, as our reward for the UAAP Championship. It was a great trip. Thank you MVP and Tita Debbie Tan for making this trip possible and worthwhile :)It's sad though that this may be my last official engagement with the team and i'll surely miss hanging out with the players, coaches and management alike!

The past weeks have been hectic attending Christmas parties, store openings, giving talks, fixing outreach programs, and shooting a commercial. Imagine if basketball is added to that list. It was indeed tiring physically but not for the soul. For example, weaving through the mountains to get to Tanay, Rizal to give a short talk to Juvenile delinquents was fulfilling. Driving to Pampanga and back to give a short talk about leadership to student leaders of Holy Angels University was just as memorable. I promised the students that I will write about my visit, and I am now keeping that promise. I have to admit that I am very impressed with their campus and facilities, not to mention their very warm welcome. For a moment, I thought that I was in a hotel or corporate office in Makati.

On that same day, I was blessed to have the chance to read to about 80 kids a book entitled Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin by Christine Bellen and published by Anvil. Of course, the event was sponsored by Inquirer and tied up with Barangay Urdaneta who also provided the food for the kids. Thanks to Hapee and Anvil, each kid was able to take home a book and some kiddie toothpastes. Here's a short link about the event which you might want to check out http://inquirer.net/vdo/player.php?vid=2039

Some people were asking why my eye was red during the TAYO (Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations) Awards, where I awarded the winners together with KC. Well, apparently I had an eye allergy/infection which caused my contact lenses to react badly. I felt terrible having to stand on stage and press on my eye all throughout in such a formal event with many distinguished guests. Therefore, i had to survive with one eye wearing contacts and the other without. Felt weird! I didn't want to turn down the press who wanted an interview so I went on with it. Anyway, congratulations to the winners!

Anyway, it's been a very busy but INTERESTING December for me going to so many cool places, driving north to Pampanga, east to Tanay, south to Pila (Laguna)... In the city, i've been to the pier, to the streets of Binondo, to the US Ambassador's residence... In First Pacific's headquarters in Hong Kong and Lang Kwai Fong which is just a few meters away... In Pacman's quarters in LV and LA... and others! Whew! Truly a learning experience for me! I wish I can share the many inspiring and touching stories of the people I've met in these places.

Some of you seem to know already that I won't be spending CHristmas here in Manila for the first time. I will still try to update this blog from time to time but I would like to take this chance to thank you all for a wonderful 2008! Thanks for all the support and encouragement! Don't forget the true essence of Christmas - to love and to share (your self, your time, your resources, etc)! But above all, it is to be united with HIM by creating a new and clean relationship with the Father through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Merry CHRIS-tmas and a HAPEE New Year TIU all of you! (Hahaha! Corny!)

Love,

Chris

hehe..
super fan ng ateneo blue eagles..

congratz last uaap season..

last season mo na yun, diba? ano na po next plan mo?

good Luck..

chie said...

Finally! After 48 thousand years, a new entry! hahaha. How are you? I hope your okay. Wow! That was really a hectic sched for you. I really can't believe that you've been to Tanay, Rizal! How I wish I knew you were there so that at least I can say Hi and help as well(I'm living in Antipolo that is why it's quite near to us). Anyways, I hope your eye is ok now. I saw your interview in 24 oras and I was worried to see you like that. I thought that you were just working so hard without thinking of your own health. I hope you can find time to relax despite of your busy scheds. Remember that we are only humans and I know that God doesn't want you stress yourself too much. Just at least take care of yourself because you cannot be able to reach out if you are not healthy, right? Looking forward for your next entry! Happy Christmas to you and your family! ^.^

Wonderful of you to enjoy your Christmas =) Unlike me, Im sick so I feel so bad not spending it with much enthusiasm as I used to =(

almira said...

Yay! a Christmas entry. :)
Good to hear some updates from you.

I've tried that only-one-contact-lens-left thingy many times. My right eye was irritated or vice versa and I just need to bear with that one-contact-lens-left because i won't be able to see what's happening around me. yeah, especially during volleyball games i can't see the ball if I don't have my contact lens.

Anyways, 2008, 2009 or any year in the future - we will still be here for you. trust me :)

merry Christmas again and happy new year! :)

take care!

at last, an update!! haha. i've been visiting your blog everyday for almost two weeks already, but everytime i do, the same "Pacman the Man!" greets me. at least now it would be Merry Christmas!! :)


The Ateneo team is really enjoying the championship, ha. You have a loooong celebration and you got lots of reward! but hey, you really deserve it! :)

I want to listen to your talks, too! Especially about leadership, coz you know what, you truly are my favorite leader and my idol. You're such a great leader in every aspect! You manage your own business, you serve as Kagawad in your village, you possess really good values of a true Christian, and of course, you're the great Team Captain of the Ateneo Blue Eagles! How cool is that for a leader?

Anyway, I just would like to say "Merry CHRIS-tmas TIU, Chris!!" :)

Anonymous said...

I just want to say that you've been a constant inspiration to me but more than that is the good effect you continuously bring to my only brother who is just 6-year old preschool kiddo.

Like you Chris, I am fond of traveling too. i have had few travels although not like the one you've already experienced. I also got chance to visit Holy Angels Uni for few instances when i was assigned in Pampanga for a short stint. Small world.. but huge place to live and learn.

Where are you spending Christmas? you've been to a lot of places and i must admit, it made me jealous. LOL

Thanks for the inspiration Chris!

Still,

May you feel God's presence in the candles, that softly spread their glow at Christmas and may you experience the wonder of His abiding love, as He guides you through each day of the coming year. May God's Blessings be with you. A Blessed Christmas...

May you always be a blessing to others... Keep on shining >",<

Hi chris...

May the spirit of Christmas be filled with great joy, peace and love. It is a sign of GOD's great love for us, let us give thanks that we've given a new day to share HIS love with special people in our HEARTS. Remember, when we praise the LORD he SMILES, when we ask, he GIVES, when we pray, he LISTENS, when we repent, he FORGIVES, when we LOVE, he stays FOREVER...

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!!:)

MiTch said...

You really are a good person inside and out that's why you deserved ALL the blessings that you had this year!

More blessings to come next year and continue sharing those blessings with other people!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Take care Chris! Thanks for inspiring us! Love you! Mwaah!

about your contact lenses... didn't you bring your eyeglasses? i also experienced having one contact lens left twice or thrice, i think. one incident was i think it was in my left eye... when i wore the contact lens ment for my right eye, it irritated my eye so i have to remove it. that is why i have to bare with my left eye. but, i always make sure that i bring my eyeglasses and solution for my contact lenses so if ever both of my eyes will be irritated, i have my eyeglasses as a substitute.


just a piece of advice, always bring your solution for your contact lenses and your eyeglasses with you. i know it is an additional baggage but it will help you a lot! :)


take care always! :)

Hi Kuya Chris! :)
(I used to address my tutors in Ateneo with Kuya or Ate)

Joyeux Noel TIU you! :)

Nothing can beat spending Christmas with all your loved ones around you! They're the greatest gifts He has given to us.

Christ is the reason for the season!

I hope you would still pursue your plan/s to build a foundation that promotes public education. I would really like to share my time and reach out for the potential beneficiaries. :)

Joyeux fêtes, mon idol! :)

Godspeed!

Abientot,

Ben Francis Rances

I read a few of your posts and I think it's really great that kids my age look up to you because there are rarely people in the spotlight who seem considerate and God-fearing. C'est La Vie! hope you have a good rest of the year. I know it's a bit late but Happy Chinese New Year :]
