Basketball star and television personality Chris Tiu said that he feels very blessed for all the successes in his basketball and television careers.
He is also in a decade-old relationship with his non-showbiz girlfriend, Clarisse Ong, so he is contented as well in his personal relationship. So for the girls crushing on him, Tiu said that he can only offer his friendship.
He said that he has a wide network of friends, and that he is always open to have as many friends as possible. PEP.PH was able to talk with Tiu during an event featuring his new Swatch endorsement at the Raffles Hotel in Makati City on February 26.
Aside from basketball, Tiu is also busy with two shows in GMA (Ibilib and Watta Job). He also has a basketball tutorial program in AKTV. He said that he is very fortunate to be able to work with AKTV on the basketball program because he have always liked to reach out to children in the provinces.
Yes only to business
There are also offers for Tiu to act in shows and movies, but the basketball star and television personality said that he would like to focus on basketball, hosting, product endorsement and even a business.
Tiu has a successful milk tea business that he put up with a couple of friends last year. Like his parents, Tiu has learned at an early age the importance of their family business.
Happy Lemon, he told PEP.PH, is doing very well with 16 branches now and 10 branches soon to open. He said that they will be launching new products and opening new stores soon.
Aside from Happy Lemon, Tiu is also set to enter into other business ventures.
