Actress Kim Chiu celebrated her 23rd birthday on April 19. At the press conference for upcoming teleserye Ina, Anak, Kapatid almost a month later, the star revealed she got a unique present from My Binondo Girl love team partner Xian Lim on her special day.
"Nu’ng birthday ko nasa bundok ako, wala akong signal, [kasi] nagshu-shooting ako ng The Healing (movie). Ta’s nu’ng umuwi ako sa bahay, sa sala may puno ng flowers na naka-heart shape. Red roses, ang dami-dami. Na-appreciate ko naman, nakakagulat na may puno sa sala ng bahay ko, nakakatuwa (I was up in the mountains on my birthday for a shooting of The Healing, and there was no signal. When I went home, there was a flower tree forming a heart shape in the living room. It had red roses, and there were a lot of them. I appreciated it. It was surprising to find a tree in my living room. It delighted me)," Kim is quoted as saying on ABS-CBNNews.com.
When the actress asked her siblings if they knew who it came from, they refused to tell her. She soon got a call from Xian who revealed they had texted him as soon as she got home. Apparently, Xian had teamed up with her siblings to surprise her on her birthday.
On the reason he gave Kim such a present, Xian said, "Masarap lang makita si Kim na ngumingiti, na masaya. (It's just fulfilling to see Kim smiling and happy.)"
Kim and Xian will be reuniting on the small screen in Ina, Anak, Kapatid. They will be joined by Maja Salvador and Enchong Dee.
