'Ina, Kapatid, Anak' actor Xian Lim admits there is nothing more he can wish for this year.
As he turns 23 on July 12, Xian Lim said that he is very grateful for all the blessings he has been receiving since last year. The Ina, Kapatid, Anak
star said it is definitely going to be a different kind of birthday for him this year. “Alam ko mas marami ng
parties na mangyayari
this time. There are a lot of things happening. Sobrang
for the support and it’s been a wonderful year. Siyempre mas marami ng
endorsements ngayon. Mas marami ng tao akong kilala, mas marami ng
parties, mas marami ng
celebrations. Nakakatuwa na heto pala yun. Kasi ako lang mag-isa
Usually small lang ang
party but this time its different. Kasi
there’s a lot to share with everyone,” he said.
Xian admitted that he usually plans something very intimate during his natal day. “Sa mismong
birthday ko ang gagawin ko lang naman
is yung nangyayari
every year is just very small dinner, usually kasi kasama ko
mommy ko, lola ko. Si
Kim (Chiu) i-invite-in ko siya pero kung
busy siya kasi
busy naman yung
. If she can come then why not ‘di ba?
The more the merrier,” he said during his birthday presscon held at McDonald’s ABS-CBN held last July 10.
As early as July 9, fans of the Kapamilya heartthrob surprised him with a dinner at a restaurant near ABS-CBN. “Nagsimula sa
surprise birthday party. Ang nag
surprise birthday party is yung mga
KimXi fans from the States. Pumunta sila dito
to celebrate my birthday. Sa
Cerchio restaurant sa
Morato. Kasama ko dun yung
, my stylist, basta nandun lahat,
” he revealed.
Xian said he is waiting until his actual birthday to open the gifts he received that night. When it comes to buying gifts for himself, Xian said he is saving his money in the bank for now until he can afford his dream house. “Kasi tinatanong ako kung anong regalo ko daw sa sarili ko, wala pa naman akong
plan. Wala pa naman akong naiisip na bibilhin ko
but in terms of celebration heto na yun eh
. I’m not planning to buy bigger things but hindi ko pa kasi alam kung ano bibilhin ko eh
. Hindi pa yun sa plano. Basta ang nasa isip ko kung tinatanong kung bahay, siyempre nag-iipon ako. Siyempre
that’s an achievement ‘di ba?
And siyempre gusto ko rin yun pero
in terms of kung bibilhin ngayon, wala pa eh. Wala pa akong naiisip eh.
If I buy something, hindi
something with my mom and family,” he explained.
Xian said he is thankful that all his wishes last year were fulfilled in such a short time. “Yung
last year natupad siya
. Before wini
-wish ko na sana mabigyan ako ng
break, sana matanggap ako ng mga tao.
Then everything happened and yung pagmamahal nila
is priceless kasi
from the fans todo suporta sila
, from the endorsements talagang pagmamahal ang pinapakita nila
and everyone okay sila
,” he said.
Xian admitted his only wish now is to be able to continue having a successful showbiz career. “Sana, sa lahat ng nagyari ngayon, sana tuloy-tuloy lang siya. Sana ma-
sustain. Sana patuloy ko mapasaya ang mga tao sa mga
shows, sa mga
roles na pino
and pati na rin sa mga kanta na sinusulat ko, sana unti-unti nilang matanggap yun at magustuhan,
” he added.
In just the span of one year, Xian said he has learned to grow as a person and as an actor as well. “Siyempre mas masaya, siyempre sa lahat ba naman ng nangyayari
and mas marami na akong alam ngayon.
I have more experience now sa lahat ng ginagawa ko,
” he said.
