After their last big screen pairing in Star Cinema's Bride for Rent last year, Kim Chiu admitted she is happy to be paired with her love team partner Xian Lim again in the upcoming MMFF entry All You Need is Pag-Ibig. She said her role as Anya and her connection to Dino (played by Xian) spans decades. "Yung love namin parang hindi natuloy kasi meron akong mga obligations sa buhay na last na yung love. So dito kinuwento na yung ano na nangyari after high school and college. Di ba may ganun na parang you liked each other nung elementary high school pero akala niyo puppy love lang pero nung tumagal as years passed by mahal niyo pa rin pala ang isa't isa," she shared during the All You Need is Pag-Ibig presscon at the Dolphy theater inside ABS-CBN.
Kim admitted that she and Xian have now been working closer than before, especially since they are preparing for their new teleserye which they are filming in locatons in and outside the country. The new series is scheduled to air by next year. "Ngayon halos everyday kaming magkasama tapos nakadalawang balik kami sa Palawan for our teleserye tapos eto sa Coron nag-one week kami dun, six days sa Coron, Palawan so siguro naman nakapag-bonding kami ng maayos (laughs)," she admitted.
The All You Need is Pag-Ibig star admitted that she has a lot to be thankful for because of Xian, both for personal and professional reasons. "Masaya naman si Xian. Nasisiyahan ako sa kanya. Si Xian... siguro all I need is Xian (laughs). Grabe, dinikit ko lang naman sa tanong! Siyempre siya, itugma natin sa Mr. Right (music video) naka-ilang views na siya, milyon-milyong views na siya sa YouTube dahil si Xian yung nanduduon at free lang yun, wala siyang TF (talent fee) dun sa video (laughs)," she explained.
The pretty Kapamilya actress also gave advice to those who are feeling lonely this Christmas. Kim admitted she also feels sad sometimes but chooses to let happiness and gratefulness reign in her life. "Ngayong Christmas wala namang (dapat na) taong malungkot. Nasa atin lang naman yun kung marunong tayong magpatawad at magmahal. Yun kasi sabi nila Christmas is about forgiveness and love. Kung meron kang nakaaway the whole year eto na yung tamang panahon para magpatawad and mahalin ang tao na yun. Yun na yung pinakamagandang regalo na maibibigay mo sa kaaway mo. Basta walang kaaway masaya. Parang pag wala kang kaaway mas masaya and mas mahal mo lahat ng tao, lahat ng taong sumusuporta at nagmamahal sayo mahal mo din so mas masaya," she shared.
