Happy New Year!! Here's 2008 in Review

2008 will surely be marked as a milestone year for many. There are so many memorable events that occurred and some not so memorable ones. Let's take a look at some highlights of the past year.



Barack Obama becomes the first African-American President of the world's most powerful nation defeating Republican John McCain.

Earthquake in China's Sichuan province kills 70,000 and leaves millions homeless.

Cyclone hits Burma and kills about 100,000.



Sub-prime crisis. Wall Street collapses. Fall of giants Lehman and Bear Stearns.

Philippine Peso broke the 50:1 barrier to the dollar.

Oil prices reached $147 per barrel

Beijing produced the world's greatest show during the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics.




Cancer victim Randy Pausch gave life lessons, via YouTube, to millions. He died in July.

Russia invades Georgia causing global anxiety.

OJ Simpson is sentenced again for robbing a hotel in Las Vegas.

Pope Benedict 16th pays his first visit to the US and claims that American power won't solve religious conflict but American values might.





The Dark Knight grosses $988 million and makes Hollywood's 4th biggest hit in history.

New York Giants, with quarterback Eli Manning, upset undefeated New England Patriots in the NFL Superbowl.

Tiger Woods played the greatest golf game of his life by beating Rocco Mediate in the US Open by a comeback victory with an ACL.


Boston Celtics defeat the LA Lakers in a fantastic finals series between the NBA's two greatest rivals.

Rafael Nadal defeats Roger Federer in the greatest tennis seesaw Wimbledon finals in 5 hours.

Michael Phelps sets a world record by winning 8 golds including a come from behind split second victory.

Usain Bolt set another world record by winning both the 100-m and 200-m sprints in world-record times.

Manny Pacquiao wins his fourth title in four different divisions by defeating Diaz in June. He also embarrassed the Golden Boy in December 6 and was named the No. 1 Pound for Pound fighter in the world.

And lastly, my favorite, Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles defeat arch-rival de la Salle Green Archers in the 71st season of the UAAP. :)


Obviously 2008 was a great year for sports but it also hosted some tragic events. I guess at this point in time, we just have to be grateful to the Lord for all the blessings that have come our way during the past year. And at the same time, it is a time to reflect and learn from the lessons of the past in the hopes of improving ourselves, our country and our relationships with people and most of all, with God for the coming year. Let us make 2009 another milestone year! Happy New Year to you all! :)

Astig ng blog entry mo ngayon Chris! One of my favorite events of 2008 is when ADMU won the UAAP championship!

Im also saddened by all the tragic things that happened around the globe. I was in front of Lehaman Brothers building in NY when it collapsed. It's a devastating sight! Its employees were all grief-stricken.

Anyhoos, Happy New YEar Chris! All we can do now is to pray that this year will be more blessed.

Remember these: Everyday we face CHANGE, but there's three things that will NEVER CHANGE!

1. God's Word never change.
2. God's love for all of us dont change either.
3. God's promise will ultimately be upheld in HIS own time.

Happy New Year!

Your favorite was mine as well. hehehe

A blessed and prosperous new year to you and your family!

sabriaü said...



Aww. My most favorite of all as well is your triumph over your bitterest arch rivals De La Salle & bagging the championship trophy after several seasons of upsets & heartbreaks.

We should all be thankful for all that has been last 2008. But most of all, we should learn from our experiences & be better persons. 2009 is a brand new year, a year full of hope, another chapter in our lives.

I'd like to thank you once more, Chris, for making my 2008 another memorable year for me. You have no idea how much inspiration you've brought to me, to many of us. Have trust & confidence that we are all still behind you to support you all the way this 2009, & the years to come.

We'll surely miss your relentless jumpers & swift assist passes as a Blue Eagle in the UAAP, but I guess life still goes on, it should. You'll still & forever remain in our hearts as our Captain, our Tiuperman, Team Ateneo's heart & soul, & our inspiration. You may not be an Eagle in uniform forever, but you can & will always be a Blue Eagle at heart.

Happy, Happy New Year Tiu you, Chris!ü

anyway, will you be here in Binondo for Chinese New Year? I hope Binondo's Chinese community extends an invite to you and if they do, hope that you'll accept it!

2008 was a memorable year for you, as you bought ADMU the UAAP championship after 6 (?) yrs., and also a memorable one for us, (your fans) as we got to see more of you! hope 2009 will be a better one for all of us! cheers! ^__^

bfrances said...

Bonne année, M. Chris!

I agree that 2008 was packed with good events, as well as not-so-good ones.

I guess the best thing to do for the year 2009 is to learn from whatever has transpired in the previous year. Also, we must look at the positive side always. In addition, God is always here to support us and I believe that He has planned everything for us, though we may not understand some parts of His divine plan.

Kuya Chris, I wish you a productive and joyful year! Allez, mon idol! :)

Àbientot,
Ben Francis Rances :)

Angel said...

And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast,
And been bow'd to the earth by its fury;
To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd
Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury -
Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.
~Thomas Hood

hello, chris!!! it's so nice yet interesting that there are many events happened last year, may i ask you why did'nt include most controversial stories like madonna-guy ritchie breakup, or the "mysterious" death of fellow GMA-7 talent Marky Cielo, etc...? well, it's ok lang, i hope that this year, sana merong magandang mangyayari sa mundong ito. wag na munang isiping merong negative things/events na mangyayari sa taong ito, the important is to TRUST and PRAY to GOD that all things made possible let us give thanks to HIM...

i'ts just my opinion, so take care and ingatz:)

hi chris, i know this is a bit odd but i just want to say that the first time i saw you in an eskinol commercial(i hope you still remember that commercial), i knew then, that you will become a heartrob as they say. But not only that, you've been a good example to everyone. Keep being an ispiration not only to the youth but also to every filipino.

hello! how was the first day at school this 2009?

chamie♥17 said...

Yeah right! For us, our batch in our school, the best thing that happened to us was when we became the Champion to our school's annual "Paskuhan" program, even our teachers were criticizing our batch. They called us the Preparation Batch because for the previous years, we were always the "kulelat". But after that happened, our batch proved that we were worth for something! :)


The Preparation Batch turned "The Champion Batch"


hope the year of the ox will really be you year... God Speed!♥

Happy New Year by the way! I hope we all have a prosperous year ahead of us, right! I know we didn't start as we want it to be, especially with the dismissal of the case of the alabang boys...I mean knowing you belong in a country that is no. 1 in illegal drug transaction in Asia isn't a good start at all. I would like to hear your opinion regarding this. You are a good influence and surely people will listen to you. keep us posted! thanks!

Well aren't you just precious :) I wish you a great year ahead, hopefully a full-stop launch on a fantastic year in high power business? I'd love to see you work your magic on that field :) The chinky chickens works but, Chris Tiu CEO works even better :)

just months from now, another UAAP season will unfold again. Ateneo will never be the same again without Tiu :( but good thing is though, you'll be a fan, a mere spectator just like all of us :) you'll be our cheerleader :)) looking forward to seeing you in the Ateneo crowd this coming UAAP season :)

i miss your blogs

bfrances said...

Hi Kuya Chris!
I think you omitted something in your entry. :)

I can still remember that "Pinoy Records" aired its first episode last December 2007. Hence, your show has been on the air for a year now.

Congratulations, Kuya! I hope to see more fascinating and interesting things that are truly Pinoy! :)

You said last Saturday that it is quite difficult to bake pan de sal. But I think you are able to bake a good batch of these yummy breakfast staple. Who knows, you can make another business venture from this awesome experience. :)

Bonne chance, Kuya! Hope to see you around. :)

Godspeed,
Ben Francis Rances :)

anyway, I've watched you in pinoy records(as usual). You are so cute making the pandesal! you look like a professional baker!:)

Again, I am still hoping that you can visit our fiesta..Please..I know you're busy but..just hoping..:)

eleisiee said...

hi chris!

i just wanna share with you a story. you know what, whenever i visit a bookstore i always see to it that i get to drop by their magazine section. and guess what, i've been to like hmmm 6(or more maybe) bookstores already and your meg magazine cover issue are all sold out! :D i always ask for a copy, though i already have one,
just to check and be overwhelmed by their respond which always goes this way: "i'm sorry mam, sold out na po dito matagal na... try niyo sa ibang branch..."

you are absolutely amazing! :D you've really captured the hearts of many, count mine hahahah!

well, i'm definitely looking forward to your next blog post. i so miss your stories.

good luck and god bless you always!

with love and prayers,
eleisiee ♥

hello you!
I never really heard about you before. My sister's just so crazy about you and I wondered "who IS this guy?" So now I know. I don't know about you much but from what I know, you're a pretty decent guy. :)

Hey Chris!

I passed the ACET and I really want to go to Ateneo this coming school year. My course is ComTech but I'm thinking of shifting because a lot of my friends who are studying there now say that it is a course for people who have brains but don't know what to do. They also end up not knowing what to do once they graduate. What do you think of ComTech? Is it a good course? Hope you reply because as of now, I really don't know what to do. Thank you!:)

Hi, Chris. I haven't viewed your blog for quite some time now, & I'm surprised to see that the posted entry is still the old one. Hmm.. You may be busy again.

I heard you're training for the National Team? & I read that you just made your debut as a Hapee player yesterday & you helped your team gain the last semi finals berth, despite your jersey being over sized. Haha! You're still our smart captain after all.ü

I still do watch PR & Ripley's always.ü

Hope to read your newest entry soon. Please do update us. Thanks.ü

trisha said...

Ive seen you playing basketball in a company -- hapee ata ung name. :)) keep going!

baby28 said...

Lyra said...

Hi Chris, we are friends of Jeany who is one of your fans, we would like to surprise her on her upcoming birthday this February 3 by requesting you to greet her, through video and writing down a message on her birthday card..


Btw, Jen is leaving for Australia on Feb 2 for a scholarship and also graduating from UP Diliman this year. Your greetings would be a really huge gift to her.

Thanks so much.
