After first entering showbiz via the ABS-CBN reality talent search Star Circle Kid Quest in 2004, former child actress Celine Lim became part of the first of questors along with season winner Nash Aguas, Sharlene San Pedro, and CJ Navato. In 2019, Celine graduated from the University of Santo Tomas (UST) with a degree in Food Technology. The talented actress revealed that she is thankful to her stints in kapamilya shows like Ipaglaban Mo and Maalaala Mo Kaya for helping augment her finances while she was still finishing school.
In a recent Instagram post, Celine shared a recent pictorial with her boyfriend Juan Marco Cuison where they re-enacted a scene from their college days. She also shared in the post how their love story first began on campus when they were both still students. Also tagged on the post is her beloved pet dog Jax.
“For my last entry, Acong and I remade a scene that happened 6 years ago in USTe. Dito ko talaga siya nakilala, pero yamot na yamot talaga ako sa kanya dahil dito.
“We were Brads in ROTC pero sa sobrang pagmamadali ko laging umuwi sa Taytay, ‘di ko natatanong talaga kung sino siya, etc. alam ko lang ayaw kong napupunta ako sa likod niya kasi ang galing niyang mag-push up, nakikita na pangit form ko.
“Pinag-monkey bars kami sa harap ng Beato, natapat ako doon sa left side na mas mataas, tapos nabitin yata ako sa buwelo. Dahil Brads nga, binuhat nila ako para matapos, pero umangat t-shirt ko at sando. Nataranta ako lalo tapos sabi ko ‘bitiwan niyo ako!’ ABA! Pagkurap ko nasa lapag na ako kasi binitiwan talaga ako ni Acong! Grabeng war flashbacks ‘yan, parang taon-taon sinusumbat ko sa kanya ‘yun.
“Ayun doon nag-start friendship namin. Para siyang male counterpart ko, we have the same taste, pero maarte lang siya ng 100x more sa akin (ang lala pero fave part ko sa kanya ‘to).
“I’m really glad lang it turned out this way although ‘di ko talaga ine-expect. Kasi sa 6 years na ‘yun kung saan-saan kami napunta at marami ring nangyari. Wala rin kaming mga usapan na ganito. Pure brotherhood lang. Nag-click na lang bigla.
“You know, you just have to be patient and faithful to God. He’ll lead you to the things that you really deserve, ‘di lang sa love life ha! Just trust Him with all your heart. I’m not that holy, and I admit that I don’t pray as much as I do before, pero grabe ‘yung pag-fulfill Niya ng desires of my heart.
“I’m truly grateful for this love that is pure, genuine, and sincere. Napakasarap matulog na masaya’t payapa, lahat sigurado.
“I really hope and pray that my friends get to experience if not exactly the same, sana greater kind of love. Dalisay, umaapaw, at pinipili araw-araw. ♡
“Miss ü my Bradie and Bestie, 1MoreCoke!!
“With all my heart, God bless you!!! @mrccsn
@jaxthewayyouare, this is the story of how I met your father. :—)”
Apart from appearing in MMK and Ipaglaban Mo, Celine was also part of the cast of popular ABS-CBN series Kung Tayo’s Magakakalayo, 100 Days to Heaven, Aryana, We Will Survive, and Tayong Dalawa where she played the younger version of Kim Chiu.
