Kim Chiu puts lovelife 'on hold'
When it comes to affairs of the heart, Kim Chiu doesn’t exactly say what she truly feels. She’ll either give vague answers or divert the topic to other concerns especially if the issue has something to do with Gerald Anderson — until recently when she appeared before the members of the entertainment press for a post-birthday lunch-cum-presscon. She turned 21 last April 19.
Aside from talking about her US trip and the charity institution she chose to share her blessings with, Kim put all speculations to rest about whether she and Gerald have reconciled while they were in the US with other Kapamilya stars for the Star Magic Tour. The two were romantically linked on- and off-cam and rumored to have separated ways months ago.
“Even I was surprised when I learned about that news,” said Kim. “Yes, we went out for dinner but it wasn’t planned. Nagkita lang kami, at parang, ‘Uy ‘lika dinner tayo,’ ganun lang.”
Kim added she’s happy that they had the chance to talk and spend some time together. “With our busy schedules, it’s impossible for us to meet and talk here (in Manila). So after that dinner, it’s like everything went back to normal, we are friends again, wala ng ilangan.”
In fact, Gerald gifted her with a cookware set when she had her post-birthday celebration in the newly-built house where she and her family just recently moved into.
Is there a chance for her and Gerald to get back together again?
“Ayoko muna ng lovelife. I’m happy being single because I get to meet a lot of people. For now, I just want to explore on my own. Who knows, I might find a boyfriend next year.”
Asked if she has become choosy when it comes to finding love, Kim replied, “It’s not that I’m choosy, I’m more careful now, ayoko nang masaktan; masakit e.”
While in the US, Kim also bonded with Maja Salvador and Angelica Panganiban after their series of shows. She even posed for magazines alongside 90210 star Matt Lanter.
Meanwhile, Kim never forgets to visit one charity institution as part of her birthday celebration. Last week, she visited Grace To Be Born Shelter which takes care of unwed mothers and abandoned babies. She brought milk and other supplies for moms and children.
“Actually, we researched which charity institution that is not given enough support. Grace To Be Born receives little supply and the least visited. Naisip ko, sila na lang kasi kawawa naman sila,” offered Kim, who plans to take up business management in college.
Soon, televiewers will see Kim in the soap Binondo Girl with Xian Lim, Matteo Guidicelli and Jolo Revilla.
