Kim Chiu talks about her new soap and her active participation in the Star Magic games.
Even though she came straight from taping an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya
, Kim Chiu made sure that she arrived in time for the Star Magic Games held last July 31. The young actress showcased her sporty side as she scored lots of points during the badminton and volleyball games. “Nanalo kami sa
second place kami sa
volleyball girls. Gusto ko talaga ng
sports, gusto ko mag-
school. Last year din madami ako nasalihan na
games. Mas madami kaysa ngayon kasi
segue pa ako sa MMK
taping,” said Kim who was all smiles right after her victorious badminton tournament with Kristel Moreno as partner versus Erich Gonzales and her handler Kate Dolino.
Aside from playing her favorite sports, Kim spent the rest of the day bonding with her close friends Maja Salvador, Matteo Guidicelli, and Enchong Dee. The four of them happily sat on the sidelines while waiting for the awarding ceremony and the ASAP Rocks
versus Star Magic exhibition game. She didn’t get much of a chance to talk to last year’s Most Valuable Player Gerald Anderson who came in late and was busy acting as the coach of the Green Team during the basketball championship. He later played for the much-awaited all-star exhibition game and racked up 31 points for the team.
Push.com.ph also took the chance to ask Kim about her upcoming teleserye My Binondo Girl
. Although this is her first full-length soap without Gerald, Kim revealed that their fans have been very supportive of their individual projects to date. “Lahat naman ng
pressure. Pero sigurado naman ako na susuportahan ng tao lahat ng
projects namin ni
Budoy, ako sa My Binondo Girl.
Confident naman ako na kahit magkaiba ang
love team namin ngayon, nandiyan pa rin yung
. Actually, lagi nga silang nasa
taping namin, kaya masayang-masaya ako
Kim was also excited about the newly-released teaser for My Binondo Girl
. As it is, it’s been a while since she last appeared on TV via Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo
. “Excited ako magbalik
primetime. Nung pinalabas yung
teaser, kinilabutan ako. Sabi ko
, ‘Shucks! After one year na wala sa
primetime, ito na ulit!’ Siyempre nakaka-
. Exciting kasi tulad nung ipinakita sa
teaser, lalaki ang
this time. Pagwapuhan na lang kami ng mga
leading men ko
(laughs)! Eh madali akong maka
character. So minsan
feeling ko lalaki yata ako kasi yung upo ko
and mannerisms ko pang-lalaki na. Pero
okay lang kasi magandang
experience para sa akin at may bago akong maipapakita sa
viewers,” she beamed.
