MANILA – Xian Lim continues to evade questions regarding his recent “single and ready to mingle” remark about his relationship status.
The 24-year-old actor made the candid confession at an event for a skincare brand he endorsed last month, and it raised questions whether his rumored girlfriend, Kim Chiu, is now out of the picture.
In an interview with ABS-CBN North America News Bureau, Lim said he just wants to keep things private as “there is always a proper timing for everything.”
“We are just going to be thankful sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa amin [ni Kim]. Maraming, maraming salamat. What we always say is we keep whatever we have private and in God’s time, there’s always a proper timing for everything,” he said.
Lim and Chiu are currently spending some time in the United States to attend a couple of events and to celebrate the actress’ upcoming 24th birthday.
Asked for his birthday wish for Chiu, Lim said, “I hope na parati siyang maging masaya. Kahit anong mangyari, always remember na everyone is here for you, people are here for you.”
Lim said he will always be grateful of Chiu because he helped him come out of his shell.
“I used to have a wall. I used to be in a shell. But she taught me how to open up, how to be more sociable. Kim is there to balance it out,” he said.
Right now, Lim and Chiu are busy pursuing individual ventures but in a couple of months, both have said they will start preparing for their reunion project.
“We will let you know once it starts,” Lim said.
