Update...

Hi it's me again after 3 weeks! Actually I've been a bit lazy lately to exercise my brain cells and articulate various thoughts. Honestly, I can't think of any interesting topic to write about. Ergo, I will do my best to touch on the many questions that I have been receiving through this blog and the FANATXT. Thanks to those who continue to subscribe btw :)

First, the latest MILO commercial. Yes, it is not my voice. I initially did the voice over but because of some internal matters, they had to use a dubber at the last minute. But , I already did the voice over again and I believe it was approved and should be airing with my voice pretty soon.... i hope! Nevertheless, the essence of the commercial doesn't change. Glad you guys liked it!

Next, many have been wondering what I've been up to lately. Well, the usual, training with the National Team, hosting and doing some business on the side. But one thing that's really kept me busy this past month is my involvement in socio-civic activities. Once the PBL Conference starts again this summer, I won't have much of a life outside of basketball again. Going back, there are several causes that I truly wish to advocate. That's why I've been doing my best to reach out to them. Sadly, we cannot accommodate them all.

Recently, Volvo had its Voice of Leadership culmination activity with an elocution contest where I was the host and ambassador. The participants were amazing with the content and delivery of their speeches. But the highlight of the event for me was being able to watch Lea Salonga perform just a few meters from me and meet her for the first time! I was being teased non-stop after the event for appearing so star struck on stage! I guess she's one of the very few local personalities who can truly mesmerize me because I'm a huge fan hers and I love watching musical plays especially those like Les Miserables, Miss Saigon and others where she played major roles.

During Valentines Day, together with my family and friends, we made an effort to experience the life of a construction worker for about 3 hours with the Habitat for Humanity group. Wasn't easy at all! But an eye opener indeed. I hope that more Filipinos can get involved not just in building homes but in building communities and individuals with values as well.

I'm also helping out the Get Caught Reading campaign with their promo materials to hopefully encourage the youth to love reading because I believe that reading (the right materials) is such a powerful weapon in developing an individual as well as nation building! Like what Jose Rizal said himself, "a pen is mightier than the sword..." Coincidentally, I am currently reading a book entitled "Lolo Jose", a very detailed description of the life of our national hero coming straight from the point of view of his very own grand niece, Asuncion Lopez Bantug. The book was given to me but it might be available in some bookstores. Very interesting!

I've also done my rounds in various schools giving short talks and messages about various topics. I've visited, of course, the Ateneo High School, Southridge, Philippine Science High School and Northfield among others. But I think I'll have to put those on hold first as my commitments are starting to pile up again. So, these are the things that's been keeping me pre-occupied lately! From youth leadership, to perseverance, to education, to Christ, and whatever other topics I've been chattering about, I sure hope that I'm making sense and getting through to them! So do you still want to hear about what's going on with me?? :) haha!

yes, i noticed that you've been too busy this past few weeks. But, hey! we still want to know what's going on with you so keep posting. Btw, congrats on your latest milo commercial. You really are a role model to our fellow countrymen. Thank God you are there to do the things that not anyone of us can do. Take care always!!! We love you Chris! Mwuah!

glad you posted a blog post chris! i always enjoy reading your blogs*;-)

jc said...

hi chris...do you have the link to the new commercial? can you post it?
thanks,,, goodluck and God bless

Nica said...

I love Lea Salonga! I met her twice in NY, once after her Les Miserables show and I find her very nice and down-to-earth.

I guess every Atenean's proud of Jose Rizal and it's no-brainer. I mean, even non-Ateneans admire him for what he has done for our country.

I guess Jose Rizal would be proud of you if he's living today. Inspite of your fame and wealth, you still find time to reach out to less fortunate people and see the real world out there. That's why you and your family are blessed. You were brought up very well Chris.

Nakakatuwa naman po malaman na talagang dedicated kayo sa ginagawa nyu,sa pagtulong sa mga socio-activities,being part of different orgs which deals helping other peoples lives,spending time to educate children whats the important reading good books,im one of your avid fan and supporter thou im not gud in sports like you do,im praying that you still continue what youre doing ryt now..God Bless

simplegal said...

Hi Chris..thanks for the update..I bet you had lots of fun lately huh? Good for you that you still had time doing the activities that you love..Though it may be tiring at times, but I'm sure it's also inspiring and fulfilling as well..Just continue being that way and continue inspiring the youth..Hope I get to have that determination and perseverance you have in pursuing the things that you love..:)
Thanks Chris and keep safe!

lazy you! hehe

anyway, congratulate kita Chris, i heard yung Masquerade ay malapit na pala mawala sa ere, at may kapalit na ata, sayo na lang ang matatag. Congrats ikaw ang naiwan sa mga kasabayan ng Bilib Ka Ba Nights!

hope to hear more stories from you!

Few months ago, I submitted an online voluntary application for Habitat for Humanity, but I haven't received any calls nor texts from them.. I wonder how I can reach them.. I'm very in to voluntary works, like those in GK, Baseco, and other outreach programs specially way back during my college days.

Good luck to your endeavors and hope you'd continue reaching out to those in need and less fortunate. You really inspire a lot of people specially youths. Keep up the good work! ;)

Hope you can keep your fans updated on whatever you're doing. It really inspires them..:)

Take care.. God bless you and your family always.

ian laput said...

It's nice to hear from you again...yeah i've read the volvo seminar in Inquirer, and the construction involvement at gmaseven blogspot. it's great, inspiring for having the heart and time to really get involve. I myself is busy every weekend with Hands-on Manila aside from the church activities. I might at most spend my birthday month doing things for God's greater glory. Hehehe. Luceat Lux.

I have always looked up to you Chris as an inspiration. I may not be an avid fan of basketball but I am an avid fan of the players. lol. kiddin.

I came across with an article one day and I would like to quote it from the source where it said, "Chris has been chose. After serving as SK Chairman since 2002, he is now a Kagawad in their barangay".

I was shocked. Really shocked! ;o

I myself is an SK Chairperson for year 2007-2010 in barangay here in Davao City. After reading the article, I was eager to know some tips from you on how to handle the responsibilities given the position.

Hopefully I will be able to get in touch in you through this blog of yours and through other means.

By the way,I saw a picture of you showing the expression on your face when you were with Lea Salonga. You looked like you were astounded and starstrucked. Very starstrucked.

Hehehehehehe... I do hope to get a reply....

simple girl said...

uhmm.. hi there..
my best friend is your number one fan.. and she even subscribe to that "fanatxt" (if iremember it right).. heheh...

i started reading your blogs because of her.. we are both born again Christians,.. and she's praying to meet you in person..

she also has her blogger account.,. it's anne1714.blogspot.com

i know you are a busy person, .. but if you have free time, you can visit her account.. (that will really make her happy).. (sorry for being that 'demanding')
I believe you are nice, not like what other people say..

all i can say is God bless you..
in everything you do, do it to glorify God.. (I hope we can share to you about the Gospel, but maybe the Lord will use other persons closer to you..)

Chris, it's interesting to know you've been active and busy to so many fruitful endeavors, and you are doing a great job in making this country we have a much better place to live in!

Perhaps I would suggest, like what the Pope did recently, you take some time for a retreat. This way you can recharge yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Take care, and God bless!

Anina said...

Hey Chris! I subscribed to that FANATXT thing and I do get your texts but how do I reply to you?:)

Leonalyn said...

Hello,

For Milo... hmmm im guessing, maybe you delivered your line n scripted na scripted ang tono ng voice mo kaya they had to use a dubber....

LEA SALONGA.... OMG! she's one of the finest artist we have... I had the chance to watch her perform live in CCP... the Cinderella play.... She was awesome talaga..... your so lucky talaga!

Habitat for Humanity with family and friends, nice... kaso about 3 hours lang... hmmm for "experience" lang talaga....

Helping out the Get Caught Reading campaign... rounds in various schools giving short talks and messages about various topics.... Involvement in socio-civic activities, nice... this is one of the BEST way to keep ourselves busy. ENJOY....

Take Care.

Remember: Only God Is Perfect.


Thank you.

oh come on Chris. how can one be bored with what you did lately? it's such an amazing experience one can have and you're so blessed to have that opportunity in your life. i envy the kind of life your living but it's a good/holy envy though. hihihi... Go ahead Chris! Soar high. so many people are looking up to you as their role model and i'm one of those.

-badlongon

ps. we were so disappointed that you weren't able to play here in cebu last feb 28. it was in the local news here that you were one of the RP team playing in that game. but i'm sure, they did it on purpose to attract a lot of audience.

Purple Penguin said...

thanks for taking time to update us tiunatics! yes, we're still very interested to know about what's happening in your life po. We can't get enough of TIU! haha! I'm amazed with how you juggle all your activities...how do you do that?! God bless you! More power! More Milo energy! :-)

kalliepepper said...

LOL of course we're still interested! particularly your recent txt regarding training with a local bank - hope you'll write about it as it sounds really interesting that someone like you is undergoing training for a local bank.

wow Lea Salonga! lucky lucky lucky you!!! ^__^

chris said...

Leonalyn, they changed some lines for the script at the last minute and couldn't call me back before airing it.

Badlongon, I was supposed to go to Cebu with the RP team but I had some prior commitments here and an injury i was treating.

Kalliepepper, thanks for subscribing to FanAtxt. I really learned a lot so far in my first day of training in the bank :) Looking forward to more banking lessons!

jesse said...

about the Milo commercial, the first time i saw/heard it, i already knew that it was not you. i dunno why. maybe because the voice is quite different from yours. it's not like the voice i hear whenever i watch Ripley's and Pinoy Records. haha. :D

of course we still want to know what's going on in your life! so keep us posted, ok? :P

I am very delighted upon reading this newest blog entry from you, Chris. Yeah, you've not blogged for weeks now, and you're sorely missed.

No, I wasn't bored at all with reading your blogs. But I do get bored when I see the same old blog posted for so many weeks, so good thing you've updated us all now. Haha.

Thanks for this new entry, and for the pictures as well. I'm glad to know you've helped out with the Habitat for Humanity. Also, I feel happy that you've met one of your idols in the local scene, Lea Salonga. You are a star yourself, but you were starstruck upon meeting her. Haha.

Regarding your Milo TVC, well yeah, it'd be much better if the voice over is your voice. And it's good to know that you've redone the recording of the voice. I'm looking forward to seeing the TVC and hearing your voice to go with it.

More updates, Chris, please. We enjoy reading them all.

Good luck with all your future commitments and I hope you'll forever stay as humble and kind hearted as you are. Take care and may God bless you more.ü

Anna said...

You are really blessed to get to do everything you want to do!

Which of your advocacies is the one you wont give up??

You are so lucky you got to meet Lea Salonga! I could just imagine how starstruck you were.

And I do hope they air your voiceover in that Milo commercial.

Take care! :)

hi Chris!

I also experienced being a volunteer of Nico-Paulinian GK Village. Although it was tiring but it's just okay because at least I have given the chance to help others. Because it is our responsibilty to help other people.

hi!i'ts been a long while since i visited your blog and to add a comment as well,haha..
wow,to know the reason behind why Chris Tiu is being a "busy man" nowadays is such amazing..

atleast you spent your time wisely(haha,am i right?wla kna atang time for yourself!)
in a serious note,nka2bilib p rin n aside from doing your committments as a tv host and a cager,nasi2ngit m p ung pgi2ng involve s various soci0-civic advocacies..bihira nlng ung tulad m n concern p rin s paligid nya..

and for that,you really deserved to be a role model(though i know it's hard kc mrami ng nkatingin sau,mejo pressure n yan)but i know you can do it..just follow whatever your heart desires!
God is with you..

cge,haba n ata ng comment q,hehehe.
P.S. buti ikaw n ung ngvovoice over s latest tvc m for milo..ung una kc iba ung voice e..

hi chris!

really love your latest Milo TVC.. =)

aw! super busy nga talaga..
i hope you still have enough time to rest.. =)

i can't wait for the next PBL cup..
when po ba ang opening?
anyway, i've just read an article from a magazine na "humakot ka daw po ng maraming fans sa PBL.." =)
well, that was really true... ;)
many UAAP fans are also PBL fans na.. and it's all because of TIU;)

btw, i had some problems w/ your FANATXT.. i wasn't able to receive your update last night.. (march 10..) and also the mms yesterday (march 11).. i don't know why.. i'm always making sure that I have load naman.. wat's worse is binawasan nila load cu.. hehe! i don't think naman na phone cu ang may problem.. =)
anyway, it's ok lng naman.. SMILE!

*i really admire you for doing all those good things! you are an inspiration and role model to all the Filipinos..
ngayon pa lang marami ka nang followers! =)

i'm sure there are more blessings to come for you and your family..

Good Luck!

God Bless you "Mr. TIU-perman!" =)

Leonalyn said...

Hello Chris,

Wow, I'm surprised to know that u answer to comments noted in your blogs. Nice.

Regarding Milo, ha-ha-ha dats a wild Guess... actually i based it on how i see u in Television. Also, in FANATXT (if I remember it ryt) you just mention for SOME WEIRD REASONS regarding the dubber thing... and now in your blog, u just noted "SOME INTERNAL MATTERS" and ALREADY DID THE VOICE OVER AGAIN AND BELIEVE IT WAS APPROVED. Further, why didn’t you mention that earlier? I mean, why not note it in your blog: The changes in some lines of the script at the last minute and couldn't call you back before airing it earlier.

Anyway... Congratulation... you are truly blessed.

QUESTION: is it true n matatapos n ang Ripley’s?

Thank you.

Remember: EQ is better than IQ (la lang, a friendly reminder)

it is so hard staying late at night at magpuyat ng sobra sobra but with ur show, it's worth it.. with ur milo commercial,nah! ny friends are so freaking wildy because of it.. instead na ako ang mag-react, inunahan pa nila ako.. =)
by the way, exercising ur brain cells is not bad enough chris.. not using it causes deterioration.. regenerating pa naman is not an occurence in our brain cells lalo na ang mga neurons.. haha.. so go, utilize it.. kesa maka-acquire ka ng mga degenerative diseases (alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis... the like.. ) katakot naman.. i idolize u! bringing those things up at life is not a stressor to you ha! naks! keep it up.. kaka-subscribe ko lang ng fanatxt mo.. hope to receice any reply to you.. =) ---nurZ

chamie♥17 said...

of course, YES!!! hahaha!!! i will still be interested in every saga of your life. hehe!

btw, how's your first day of training in a local bank?? hope you will someday tell us about that. :)

Hey Chris,
congrats with everything especially your commercial. It's been awesome. Oh and thanks for being there during the Pure Fashion show. It was really awesome. All the girls wanted you there! haha And keep on posting more. And maybe on your experience in the fashion show even if you were there for such a short time. Nice meeting and chatting with you. haha Go Jose Rizal and keep doing what you're doing! :D Jess Bless and take care!

Hi. I know this is totally unrelated to the topic. I don't have any means to reach you but here kasi. I just want to ask you if you could text Gelaine on the 16th? It's her birthday kasi. Payback lang for the video of you greeting me happy birthday na binigay nya sa akin nung November hahaha. Thanks pala for that hahaha.

Don't post my comment na lang hahaha.

Hey Chris! You're a very busy guy indeed! At least you're always productive.

I'm subscribed to fanatxt since Day 1 (I hope it started Jan 19) and I wonder, when will you announce the winner? Of course we all hope to win! Sana you could teach all of us na lang but that would be absurd. Hahaha! We'll just eat up your time, that's for sure. :)

I hope you do receive my replies thru 4627 because my service provider is charging me like crazy! Not that I mind, i just hope that it shows up in the system.:)

If I may ask, what are your plans this coming Holy week? My family will join a pilgrimage in Bulacan, for the 14 stations of the Cross. I also observe the "no meat Fridays" this lenten season. I have so many plans this summer and I hope all will push through especially my Ilocos trip! (I render OTs just so I could save up. Hahaha!)

Good luck on your training! Hope you'll tell us more about it! Take care and God Bless!:)~faye

Hi Chris,

Nice to hear from you again. I've been checking for new posts... finally it's here ...

About the local bank where you're having some form of "training" - i think you are referring to Sterling Bank of Asia (SBA). I know that SBA is expanding, having just acquired the shares of stock and assets of another local bank. I should know . . . coz I drafted the earlier versions of the Special Purchase Agreement signed by the parties on March 9. Btw, I work for the major stockholder of the local bank purchased by SBA.

Anyway, I wish you the best in all your endeavors. Nice to hear from you again.

bfrances said...

Hello, Kuya Chris!
I just attended a workshop yesterday, and one of the main points for discussion of our speaker is about reading.

He told us that we should set aside time for reading, if we really want to know more and seek for improvement. It will always be a struggle to know and change, but it's worth it in the long run.

He even added that little knowledge is dangerous.

Btw, I just saw the Milo commercial and this time I already recognized your voice. :)

Are you flying to Serbia on the 27th? Bonne chance to your training, Kuya! :)

Abientot,
Ben Francis Rances

Good day chris!

Wow, you're too busy huh! Anyway, I watched Ripley's last night and I noticed that your hosting skills are better now. Ok na yung tagalog mo.=) And in your Milo commercial, ok na rin yung voice over mo. Kasi I think voice mo na talaga yung gamit ngayon dun sa TVC. Great job!

Goodluck and Godbless!

Hei Chris.

How are you? It was so long ago since the last time I left a comment here in your blog.
I was hospitalized for quite some time and I am still recovering. I’ll take this opportunity to ask for your prayers for my quick recovery…=)

Nways, I already catch the TVC of Milo and I think with your voice in it. There’s really a big difference huh! Especially on the first part…. =) and is it really your voice now doing the VO’s for Ripleys? I think so… great improvement huh!

And hey, I also got the chance to catch your interview while building houses for Habitat for Humanities Ph. I was once a volunteer there also and it was one of the most memorable activities I did back then. It was really tiring but enjoyable… you’ll feel very much fulfilled after building a house huh! It’s glad to know that Habitat for Humanities is continuously building houses for the less fortunate….

Hei Chris, I’ll look forward to more updates ok. And take care of your self always. I’ll pray for your good health always too…
So long… More Power!
Godbless!

Hahaha. It is so cool that the my mom's biggest idol (Miss Lea Salonga) was met by my very own idol. Oh well, are you still visiting our school? I haven't seen you since 2nd sem. Haha. Good thing your Chinky Chickens is still here. We miss you Chris! :)

sherilyn said...

hi chris,

Thank you for this entry...
I miss you so much..
We understand that you are too busy this past few days..But please do update us and keep posting in your blog.

I really love Lea Salonga...her talent is overwhelming. I would also feel the same when I meet her in person.

It is interesting to see Chris Tiu as a construction worker..:)

I hope you pay a visit here in our school...That would be awesome...:)

About the Milo tvc, It's now your voice! I'm so happy..the commercial becomes a lot better..

Lastly, I would always want to hear from you..no matter how long your story is. After all, all things that are connected on you is very exciting

God bless..

Hello Ahya Chris!
Wow. thanks for sharing the book about Jose Rizal, I'm a Jose Rizal aficionado myself. And I am hoping to buy that book you've said. Unfortunately, I'm not studying in Ateneo where you hail Rizal as the "Pride of the Jesuits". I'm only studying in a school where Rizal was recognized as an alumnus, so we didn't dig deeper in his life. =P. So anyway, thanks again and God bless always! 加油!加油!

Hi Chris! Glenn here from NBDB. I hope you still remember me.
First off, I want to thank you for supporting the NBDB's Get Caught Reading (GCR) campaign and gave your precious time for the photoshoot at the Filipinas Heritage Library for the advocacy materials. I hope you saw the photos that we are putting out in posters.
hey i can post the pics here,right?

It's been weeks now since I last read your blogs. And wow, you mentioned the GCR. Thanks man! and the book "Lolo Jose". I sure hope you had fun time reading the book as i did. though i only read few pages.

keep up the good work, man. Hope to meet with you soon for more reading projects.

It's good that you joined the Habitat for Humanity build. I hope more and more people will be involved in such activities. Do join us again at Hands On Manila for other volunteer activities. Maybe you can do a basketball clinic with one of our partner institutions.
