Coming straight from a mall show in Legazpi city last April 21, Sunday, Xian Lim made sure he was back in Quezon City in time for Kim Chiu's birthday bash-slash-grand fans day held at the Area 05 bar on Tomas Morato. The Kapamilya hunk admitted he really wanted to celebrate the special occasion with Kim with whom he has had a successful pairing with ever since they did the Kapamilya series My Binondo Girl together last year.
“Kami ni Kim we're enjoying everything that's been given to us by the network, yung trabaho namin, yun lang naman ang hinihiling namin eh. Now gusto namin magtrabaho ng magtrabaho. Lahat ng trabahong binibigay sa amin blessing na rin na magkasama pa din kami. Killing two birds with one stone (laughs),” he admitted.
The 23-year-old actor said he prays for nothing, but even more blessings for his talented co-star. “I wish na sana kung nandito siya sa peak siya ngayon, mas mahihigit pa yung peak na yun. I guess lahat ng tao pag nakikita siyang masaya nahahawa sila sa happiness niya so she's doing good for everyone,” he said.
Xian said he has a gift for Kim, but as a gentleman refused to divulged any details about it. “Siyempre pangit naman kung ang lalaki nag-ba-brag basta happy happy lang. We're here to celebrate her birthday, ayun. Meron naman pero it’s not for a guy to announce. Medyo weird lang kasi, na-wi-weirduhan lang ako sa idea. Basta it's the simple gestures that count naman eh. Basta kami okay naman kami. Yun lang I think that's all that counts,” he added.
The actor said it brings him happiness to know that Kim is enjoying her life right now. “Lahat naman ng lalake kahit sino, any woman very fulfilling para sa lalake na makita na masaya sila. So enough na sa akin na makita siya na masaya. Gift na sa akin yun,” he added.
Despite their busy taping schedule for the hit Primetime Bida series Ina, Kapatid, Anak as well as other showbiz commitments, Xian said he and Kim are still planning to find time to go out together but for her birthday, they have not had an opportunity to set a date yet. “Siyempre si Kim na lang yung magde-decide niyan (laughs). Nakakalabas naman kami. Like I say, I'm not going to say we don't go out. We do go out but siyempre mas si Kim na bahala dun (laughs),” he shared.
Xian said he feels lucky that Kim has always been vocal of how much she appreciates their close friendship. “Para marinig yan coming sa isang babae, I guess for any man they would feel very, very happy. Basta sobrang nakakaano ng puso yun eh di ba? Kahit sino namang makarinig nun eh. So I'm happy that she's happy,” he said.
Having been very vocal about his admiration for Kim, the model-turned-actor said he has nothing but the best intentions for her. “Hindi naman ako nananakit ng tao (laughs). Good boy naman po ako,” he stressed.
Xian said he has plans to go on a trip later this year if and when his work schedule eases up. “I think we're going to have some time after Ina, Kapatid, Anak. We're going o be able to travel so hopefully magkaroon ng vacation,” he said.
