Early this year, the leading chocolate energy drink for youth and adults in the country, Milo Philippines launched their newest TVC featuring Milo BEST Graduates (From Milo Basketball Clinic during the past years with their respective caring and loving mothers as they share what they have on raising their successful children within the field of basketball. They are Chris Tiu (1992), Keifer Ravena (1997) and Prince Carlos (2006).

As said by the slogan, I agree that the foundation of a person is his childhood and how we were raised on these stages will reflect what we would become in the future. These three dynamic and lovely moms indeed are currently having their trophies on hand which is seeing their kids grew up well, competitive and excellent in their fields especially in sports. As for Milo, a child with enough energy and nutrients is an energetic and smart. -faf

Alodia Gosiengfiao's iBilib Guesting :)

There are three celebrities in the Philippines who I truly love and admire and two them were Chris Tiu, the all-around man (basketball player, TV host, entrepreneur, products ambassador, environment/hunger/charity advocate and amateur pianist) and Alodia Gosiengfiao (cosplay queen, artist, blogger, amateur pianist, photographer and TV personality). Well they have these similarities as they were both from Chinese blood lines, Ateneo Alumni, pianists and persons of style.

Alodia's fansign for me. :)
It was always a little dream for me to see them together maybe in an event, a picture and had been crossing fingers that Alodia would guest in one of Chris’ TV shows. My wish was granted a week ago when Alodia guested as a co-host in Chris’ top rated science-experiments themed show “iBilib: Featuring the Wonders of Horus”, a Japanese franchise show popular to students and kids. In every episode, a female guest would wear costumes so as to say, cosplay costumes. People wonder what it would be if the Philippines’ cosplay queen would guest in the show. It has been a request of many fans for so long.
At the guesting, Alodia wore her Doll Heart Hong Kong costume on an episode with Bea Binene and her cute Neko cosplay costume in the second episode with Julie Ann San Jose.

Sad to say, I didn’t make it at the taping because I am working outside the country right now but glad that my friends requested Alodia to have a fansign for me. The episodes were to be aired on February 03, 2013 and February 10, 2013. -faf

Ecowarriors/ Batang Rizal Tree Planting at Taiyak Hills, Rizal Laguna with Chris Tiu and the Tiunatics

The future depends on what we are going to act and provide in our present. Today, our dear mother earth faces abuse and disrespect as our modern time requires more and more resources with the ever evolving technology and human knowledge. Imagine a world without trees? Look at that devastation made by floods that killed thousands of people and destroyed people’s basic needs. We get what we give and as Mother Nature gives us these valuable things of vitality, she also gives back what we gave like those pollution, illegal logging and chemical irritants. The youth of today should realize this importance and act or else we are the ones who will suffer for a payback.

Being one of the participants, I found it very challenging because I am really not used into climbing high mountainous landmarks which made us real tired and exhausted but seeing those nature views from the top greened by trees and grass with the cute blue sky eased the physical exhaustion. Appreciating nature yielded such an amazing feel thinking how God hands gave us this wonderful gift and fear what will happen in the future if we continue to pollute and cut those sturdy trees. Planting trees with friends and out dearest idol is the most happiest and memorable outreach we did so far. One of my friends said that we should visit the trees someday when we became old and see how tall they have become.

After the event on the hills, we headed to Greenwich, San Pablo branch for a lunch while Mr. Chris Tiu tried to sit on every table greeting and asking how we are doing, such a very nice guy indeed. Being a fan has always fulfilling because it was his third outreach activity with us after a day with the kids at Baseco and building homes in Pasig. In behalf of my co-Tiunatics and co-Admins of his Official Tiunatics twitter, group and fanpage, we would like to send our deepest gratitude for making us part of various worthwhile, fun and heart fulfilling activities.

On our way home! I love my friends! [Photo By: Me]

We all parted with smiles and happy hearts. Looking forward for more fulfilling activities like this. -faf

A popular show in Japan, GMA Network got the Philippine franchise airing it every Saturday in primetime with Chris Tiu, Moymoy Palaboy and Isabelle Daza as hosts. The TV show was super entertaining and informative and very well recommended for students and kids.

Being invited to watch their taping was indeed a privilege. Thank you to the show's director Mr. Rico Gutierrez for allowing us through our friend Trisha. We are very grateful for such experience seeing Chris live doing hosting on for a rated TV show. The staff were warm, cheerful and very energetic as well as the gorgeous hosts. One word: SURREAL.

He guested on the most popular gag show in the country, Bubble Gang of GMA Kapuso Network on a famous segment lead mainly by Ogie Alcasid and Michael V. called Boy Pickup.

The theme is rap battle and each week, casts and guest exhibits their pickup lines and too bad for them, Boy Pickup played by Ogie Alcasid is always on the win. It was indeed a different and feel good moment for the Tiunatics watching their idol producing cool pickup lines and it trended on Twitter for the whole day after the said episode.

These were the pickup lines by Chris Tiu as Boy Chicha:

Birthday ka ba?
Dahil habang papalapit ka na e-excite ako.

Parang wala ako sa sarili ko...
Kasi nasayo na ako

Abs ka ba?
Dahil magpapakahirap ako makuha lang kita

Matalino ka ba talaga?
Kasi kung matalino ka talaga, sige nga sagutin mo na ako
