Xian Lim admits he’s still “kilig” with Kim Chiu


122815-kimxian_PUSH.jpgAs part of the Metro Manila Film Fest romantic comedy All You Need is Pag-ibig, Xian Lim admits he is happy to be reunited on the big screen with his leading lady Kim Chiu. 

"Ako dito si Dino at si Kim si Anya, siya yung high school sweetheart ko kumbaga unrequited love. Ang dami kong gustong sabihin sa kanya back in high school. Kumbaga dito sa pelikulang ito lahat nakuha ko sa buhay ko, siya lang yung hindi ko nakuha. Hanggang college mahal na mahal ko pa rin siya. Nakuha ko lahat sa buhay ko siya lang ang hindi,” he said.

Aside from their movie, Xian has also been busy gearing up for his new teleserye with Kim called The Story of Us, which will air early 2016. Now that they have been working closely again, Xian admitted he still can’t help but feel “kilig” when he’s with Kim. 

"Oo naman (laughs). Siyempre. Sabi ko nga kay Kim nung ginagawa namin yung The Story of Us, tinanong niya ako, 'From the first time na nagka-eksena ba kami up to now, pareho pa rin ba yung pagtingin ko sa kanya? Meron pa rin bang nag-sa-spark?' Kung pareho pa rin ba yung nararamdaman or meron pa ba or ano? Parang nadaanan lang ng usapan namin. Parang napag-kuwentuhan lang. Curious lang. Tapos sabi ko, 'Siyempre. Every time na nakikita kita mas dumadagdag ng dumadagdag yung nararamdaman ko sayo.' Totoo. Never siya nagiging stagnant. From when we worked with each other nung Binondo Girl pa lang tapos to the time na hindi na kami magka-partner tapos ngayon na nabalik na kaming magka-partner,” he explained.
 
The All You Need is Pag-ibig star also shared advice for those who are loveless or broken hearted during the holiday season. 

"There’s always something to look forward to. Hindi naman nila kailangan maging malungkot kasi katulad ko, ako mahilig ako mag-emote eh. Marami lang, lahat naman siguro tayo meron tayong pinagdadaanan pero meron akong nabasa na kada araw isusulat mo yung mga magagandang nangyayari sa ‘yo kasi everyday may mga magagandang nangyayari and you tend to neglect it. Hindi mo sila nabibigyan ng pansin, ang nabibigyan mo ng pansin yung mga negative. So you feed the positive para palagi kang happy at ngayong pasko siyempre dapat palaging pag-ibig ang binibigyan ng pansin. Totoo yan all you need is pag-ibig kasi what drives you everyday? Bakit ka ba gumigising pa? Di ba love for your family, love for your girlfriend or your wife or my mom or my lola. It’s pag-ibig talaga eh, the driving force,” he said.
