Even though they’ve been dating for quite some time now, Kim Chiu said that Xian Lim still made an effort to ask her to be his date for the Star Magic Ball. He did not just assume that they would be going together. “Three days ago wala pa akong ka-date. So nung nagte-taping kami, he invited me by giving me flowers with a card. Nagtanong naman siya ng maayos. Sabi ko, ‘O sige, since wala naman ako ka-date,’” said Kim in an interview with Push.com.ph last September 1.
Kim further shared that it’s one of the things she likes about Xian—he really knows how to make a girl feel special. “Ganon naman siya lagi e. He never fails to surprise me. At least dito sa ball we can relax. Tapos we plan to stay din for the after party event.”
Both Kim and Xian have been busy taping advance episodes for their upcoming teleserye Ina, Kapatid, Anak, which is scheduled to air sometime in October. ABS-CBN management has apparently loved the materials that the show came up with so far. “Sobrang kinakabahan kami at sobrang happy at the same time kasi bigla siyang na-approve at lumabas na yung teaser. Tuloy-tuloy yung taping namin. Natapos nga kami ng eight this morning. Sabi nga namin, ‘Fresh pa ba kami sa ball?’”
The teaser of Ina, Kapatid, Anak showed a powerhouse cast including Maja Salvador, Enchong Dee, Ronaldo Valdes, Eddie Gutierrez, Ariel Rivera, Janice de Belen, and Cherry Pie Picache. As a certified primetime princess, Kim admitted that she can’t wait to see how the audience will react to another family drama. “In every serye it’s a different character. At laging may pressure. Pero pinagdadasal ko na lang sana tanggapin siya ng tao ulit at subaybayan siya ng tao.”
