Despite the ongoing pandemic, Kim Chiu kept herself busy finishing her teleserye Love Thy Woman as well starring in the Philippine remake of the Indian horror film U-Turn which recently premiered online. The Kapamilya actress said she has learned a lot about herself during these challenging times.
“Dami eh. Saan natin sisimulan? Parang this year, I’ve learned so much. Nakilala ko yung sarili ko and I’ve learned na puwede pala yung mga bagay na ganito na gagawin mo sa bahay and then I also learned na yung mga bagay dati na mga expensive stuff, signature bags, luho mo, it’s not that important naman pala. The most important is your circle, your family, your friends. Yun yung mahalaga. Yung tao na nandiyan sa iyo kasi yung materyal na bagay it’s nothing. Ngayon pag pumupunta ako ng grocery (binibili ko) yung mga kailangan ko lang. Hindi na yung mga extra extra. Yung kung ano yung importante, yun ang natutunan natin this year eh. It is to have a good family, a good circle that will keep your sanity and yun lang. Alam natin yung main priority natin. So nasa tamang path na tayo in the next coming years,” she said during the Tiger Crackers Kitchen Snack Hacks launch event last November 14.
The 30-year-old actress and new It’s Showtime host also revealed what really makes her happy nowadays. “It makes me happy to see someone happy. Parang happy ako pag may nakikita akong taong happy. Yung parang yun na, na-ha-happy na rin ako pag happy ka. Parang pangit pakinggan pero happy ako pag may taong happy kasi kailangan natin maging happy for each other dahil yun ang kailangan natin di ba? Yung support. So kung happy ka, support kita so happy din ako para sa iyo.
“And then not everyone can smile and yung parang genuine smile and genuine happiness dahil sa ilalim dun meron at meron tayong pinagdadaanan but we’re very thankful na kahit papaano we are able to smile and we were able to feel na happy tayo. So nakaka-happy lang yung ganun. I’m happy to see everyone happy,” she explained.
