Xian Lim on spending Valentine’s Day with Kim Chiu: ‘I’ve always loved surprising her”
Xian Lim shares a bolder, sexier image in Star Cinema’s Valentine’s day offering ‘Sin Island’.
With Valentine’s Day happening this week, Xian Lim admitted he still has to come up with plans for his date this year with Kim Chiu. “Wala pa akong plano eh. Un nga ang mahirap wala pa akong plano. Mahilig talaga ako sa grand gestures. I think growing up watching romantic comedy films and doing romantic films parang nasa loob ko talaga siya eh. Kasi ang dami din naming screenings and stuff but defintiely hindi mawawala yun,” he shared during the Sin Island presscon held last February 12 inside the ABS-CBN compound.
Two years ago, the Sin Island star took Kim on a whole day outdoor date which included a hot air balloon ride and go-kart racing. Xian said it will be a challenge to top that date but he does not want to repeat the same activities. The two have been each other’s Valentine date ever since they first got paired together in My Binondo Girl. “I have thing na hindi ko inuulit (yung date) I think dapat never inuulit dapat gumagawa ka palagi ng bago di ba? Kasi yung mga may grand gestures na date I think around six years na? Since Binondo Girl nagkatrabaho kami I’ve always loved surprising her and seeing her reaction ” he admitted.
Even though he will be busy promoting his movie’s opening day on February 14, Xian said he does not want to entertain the thought of not celebrating with Kim this year and said he already invited her to watch Sin Island with him. “Wala namang ganun. Siyempre we love spending time with each other. Wala kaming ganung negativity na iniisip. Ininvite ko na siya manuod. But sabi naman niya oo naman papanuorin niya pag libre yung schedule niya nag-shu-shooting din siya this time,” he shared.
Even though they are working on separate projects at the moment, Xian said that he and Kim will always be supportive of each other’s career. “Because sa amin talaga, we just really support each other. We do talk about it, nagkukuwentuhan kami but that’s all we can do talaga eh. And sa mundo namin the best gift you can possibly give is your time and your support for each other, yun lang talaga eh,” he added.
