After starring in the Star Cinema comedy Past Tense, Kim Chiu said she is looking forward to having more time to spend with family and to rest until the end of the year. “After doing Past Tense I’m very happy and I feel really loved and supported by my fans. I feel very blessed this 2014. This whole year kasi I didn’t get to spend time with my family kasi I was always taping and shooting so now this December is really for family time with my brothers and sisters and my niece,” she shared during the Skin White #BetterMe event held last December 12 in Makati city.
The longtime Skin White celebrity ambassador shared that she was not bothered by becoming the punchline of one of Vice Ganda’s jokes in his Metro Manila Film Fest movie The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin which poked fun at her thin frame. “Oo nga eh, iba talaga si Vice! (laughs). Wala, okay naman yun. Hindi daw ako kumakain eh kumakain naman ako. Madami akong kinakain actually nag-gain ako ng weight ngayon kasi parang nakapagpahinga ako so kain, tulog so yun lang and bonding with family. Wala naman ako diet pero basta allergic ako sa seafoods, yun lang,” she said.
Kim said that because she finally has more free time, she preparing for her upcoming trip abroad with her family. “So pupunta kami sa snow sa Japan. We leave sa Christmas. I’ll treat them kasi nung nakita ko yung snow the first time parang sobrang saya ko so what more if my brothers and sisters could see snow? Di ba pati yung niece ko pa matutuwa? So parang I want them to experience what I experienced a few months ago during my trip to Canada,” she shared.
During the #BetterMe event which Kim has been a part of for the past seven years, the 24-year-old actress said her siblings are her biggest supporters and source of support. “My brothers and sisters are really my inspiration that’s why I entered show business. I grew up with my lola and then one of my biggest inspirations are my sisters and my brother and my lola. They’re the ones who inspire me to do good and be better,” she said.
For next year, Kim divulged that she and love team partner Xian Lim be working on a new project together again. For the meantime, she is still thinking of what to give him for Christmas. “Wala pa eh, ang hirap niya hanapan ng gift eh pero I still have two more weeks,” she admitted. When asked what the state of her heart was at the moment, the pretty chinita replied with a smile, “Happy. It’s a happy red heart (laughs).”
