As always, Kim Chiu is taking some time off her busy schedule during the Christmas season to be with her loved ones.
At the moment, the Kapamilya star is already busy preparing gifts for her loved ones.
“Nako, madaming mga kailangan i-Christmas shopping.
“I started it last Monday and I have to finish it on Wednesday,” Kim related to the press last December 12 during the launch of Skinwhite Captivate Council.
“I go to Rustan’s,” she answered when asked where she does her Christmas shopping.
WHITE CHRISTMAS. Kim said she enjoyed her first frolic in the snow when she went to Canada last November for the Star Magic One Magical Night concert.
Now, she wants to share that experience with her family
“My plan for Christmas, is to spend time with my family, with my brothers and sisters and my niece.
“We’re going out of the country for one week... [para] ma-experience nila yung snow.
“Alangan naman ako lang mag-experience nun, I want to share it with my family.
“Yung saya na na-experience ko nung when I saw snow, nung November ba yun, yung Canada tour ko.
“After that naisip ko, bakit hindi ko i-treat yung mga sisters ko.”
MOST MEMORABLE CHRISTMAS. Though Kim has been to a lot of festive Christmas parties since she became a celebrity, her most memorable Christmas was when she and her dad reconciled a few years ago.
She recalled, "First Christmas ever yung nag-reunion kami with my family.
“Nagbati kami ng dad ko, this was five years ago.
“Nag-reunion kami with my whole clan and then I saw a lot of them.
“‘Tapos yung mga taong who did not believe in me parang, ‘Uy ang galing galing mo na!’
“So parang it was a big family reunion, nakakatuwa.
“Nakakagaan ng feeling na dati sinasabi nila hindi ko kaya.
“Pero ngayon, ‘Look at me now, I’m even more confident with myself.’”
ONE-OF-A-KIND GIFT. Of all the lavish gifts she has received from friends and fans, Kim singles out her fans’ thoughtfulness as truly one of a kind.
“Like now, yung Past Tense, we have 32 block screenings sa mga fans.
“I think it’s the best gift kasi naramdaman mo talaga na andoon yung supporta nila for you.
“Ang isang block screening, it costs like P80, 000.
“So yun sobrang happy na ako and I’m very thankful to have all of them to support me.
PLANS FOR KIMXI FANS. Having faced a lot of challenges in the past years, Kim said she remains positive about the upcoming year.
“Ano na lang, I can say that 2015 is going to be exciting.
“There is an upcoming teleserye and movie, and a lot more.”
For KimXi fans, a lot is in store this 2015 from the love team.
“I’ll be having a teleserye with Xian [Lim] under Star Creatives, and movie wala pa, secret pa, eh.
“Pero abangan nila, it’s really going to be a great year.”
