She may look fragile because of her slim frame, but it doesn't mean that Kim Chiu cannot do any adrenaline-pumping adventure.
The My Binondo Girl star recently flew to Macau with her sister. "Nagpunta ako dun for one and a half days, sandali lang talaga," she began.
And guess the main purpose of her trip?
"Ginawa ko na yung pangarap ko [na] right after nung Binondo Girl, mag-ba-bungee jump ako," she told ABS-CBN and PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that were invited to Star Magic's send-off party for Sam Milby.
Kim related that a scene in her series piqued her interest: "Kasi nakita namin yun sa taping namin sa Binondo Girl...
"E, hindi ako pinayagan dahil taping daw. Delikado. Gawin mo na lang pag personal lakad mo.
"After ng taping, the next week, ginawa ko na siya."
And how was the experience?
The 21-year-old actress exclaimed, "Masaya...Masaya...Nakakatakot pero ano...
"Yun siya, 800 feet, sobrang saya, and parang pagtalon mo parang, 'Hay...'
"Parang nawala lahat ng mga dinaramdam mo. Parang...
"Totoo pala yun pag tatalon ka, sisigaw ka lang nang sisigaw."
This trip, she said, was purely R & R: "More on picture-picture, pasyal, mga ganun lang..."
And if she were to describe Macau: "Malamig dun. Parang ano, Las Vegas..."
WHO MISSED KIM? Seated beside Kim during the interview was her screen partner Xiam Lim.
We asked Xian, "Did you miss Kim?"
The Filipino-Chinese newbie answered, "Siyempre, sino ba namang hindi makaka-miss kay Kim."
Then, half-joking, he complained about not getting invited to the trip.
He said, "Hindi man lang nag-invite papuntang Macau, ako rin naman gusto ko rin namang tumalon..."
Maja Salvador, who was at the same table, threw in, "Tanong mo kung kaya bang sabayan ni Kim tumalon si Xian?"
The guy gamely answered his fellow Kapamilya's question, "Oo naman, di ba. Yun nga, e. Hindi ako in-invite ni Kim pero gusto ko namang sumabay, e.
"May plan na tatalon kami 'tapos ngayon, nawala yung plano. Hindi ko nga alam, e. Wala akong malay na nasa Macau pala siya."
Kim was quick to explain, "Kahit handler ko, manager, hindi nila alam. Pag-uwi ko na lang pinakita ko na lang sa kanila, 'Ate, nakatalon na po ako...'"
Maja, still listening to the interview, remarked, "Masyado kayong matamis..."
PEP asked: Did you guys exchanged text messages?
Again, Maja cut in, "Ako nang sasagot: calls."
Smiling, Kim only managed to say "mainit" because the weather then was truly humid.
And to answer our question, Kim said, "Hindi, hindi. Hindi ako nag-cellphone. Wala lahat."
Xian added, "Kailangan din naman niya yung break, e, kasi, she's working hard."
Lastly, what's the real score now?
Maja joked, "Text mates!"
Kim did not respond to the question but assured us, "Oo naman, friends naman kami."
Xian did not answer the question at all: "Ano pa ba yung mga tanong mo, Ate, meron ka bang listahan, mahaba pa iyan?"
Kim remarked, "Etchos," then ended the interview with, "Mainit! Kayo talaga..."
