MANILA, Philippines – Although there has yet to be a Xian-Kim public date proposal for netizens to feast their eyes on, Kim shared that it was a given that they will be going to the Star Magic Ball together.
During the press conference for her upcoming album, Touch Of Your Love, on Tuesday, September 26, Kim said that there was no need for Xian to go the extra mile just to invite her.
“Ilang years na ring may paandar [si Xian], mga 5 years, so siguro ibigay mo na sa mga teenager ‘yung mga ganun. Sa edad namin ngayon, okay na kahit ano, paandar or hindi. Okay lang,” she said.
(He (Xian) has made a lot of effort in the last 5 years, so I guess we can leave it to the teenagers. At our age, it's okay if there's no more date proposals.)
still... he never fails to surprise! thank you!!! #starmagicball2016 A post shared by Kimberly Sue Chiu (@chinitaprincess) on Oct 21, 2016 at 5:18am PDT
The singer-actress also denied rumors that they have broken up and went as far as unfollowing each other on social media. According to Kim, it was difficult to find time for each other given their busy schedules.
“Grabe wala namang ganun. Okay naman kami. Meron lang kaming mga separate projects na ginagawa. We’re okay, we’re fine. Nagpo-promote s’ya ng album n’ya at upcoming movie. Ako naman Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin at upcoming movie also. So ‘yun medyo busy lang talaga.”
(It's not like that at all. We're okay. We just have separate projects now. We're okay, we're fine. He's promoting his album and movie. As for me, I'm busy with Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin and my upcoming movie. So we're just really busy.)
As for KimXi fans waiting for a reunion project, Kim says that there’s no movie or TV series lined up for the two of them just yet.
“Solo solo muna kami ngayon (We're both going solo for now). Siguro ‘yung (I guess) management wants us to grow individually.”
Kim also says that she isn't ready to settle down anytime soon and for now is content to prioritize her career and family. Although she eventually hopes to get married some day, Kim said that it’s not becoming for women to demand a proposal.
“Sa babae naman, mahirap naman magsabi na, ‘Ay gusto ko mag-settle down ng 26 years old,’ pero wala namang nagpo-propose sa’yo. Nakakahiya. Sa babae, mahirap talaga. Hope for the best. Ako gusto ko naman talaga may humingi ng kamay ko,” she said.
(For a girl, it's difficult to say 'Oh, I want to settle down when I'm 26 years old' but no one has proposed yet. It's very embarassing. It's really hard for the girl. Hope for the best. I really want someone to ask for my hand in marriage.)
On her new album Touch Of Your Love
On Thursday, September 28, Kim is launching her third album under Star Music, Touch Of Your Love at SM City North EDSA Skydome.
The Chinita Princess revealed that she was very hands-on when it comes to choosing the songs for her new album. Kim revealed that she specifically picked songs that will hopefully inspire people to never give up on love.
She shared that she also took voice lessons, which gave her the confidence to sing live.
“Nag-aral na rin po ako, nag-voice lesson po ako. S’yempre nakakahiya kung pangatlong album ko na di ko pa kayang mag-live. Alam ko naman po na hindi ako singer pero I’m proud to say na I’m an entertainer. I want to entertain people with my voice kahit papano may nababagayan naman po yung boses ko.”
(I still studied, I took voice lessons. It would really be embarassing if I couldn't sing my 3rd album to a live audience. I know that I'm not a singer but I'm proud to say that I'm an entertainer. I want to enterain people with my voice and songs that suit me.) – Rappler.com
