MANILA - Maja Salvador said her chance meeting with Kim Chiu at a gym, which eventually led to their reconciliation, was a sign she had been waiting for after more than a year of being estranged.
During her live guesting on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" on Tuesday, Salvador was asked by co-host Kris Aquino if she and Chiu have indeed patched things up.
"Yes," Salvador answered.
Aquino has been vocal of her fondness for Chiu, who had a controversial falling out with Gerald Anderson in 2010 and later with Salvador in early 2013 after the actor admitted being in a relationship with the "Thelma" actress.
Salvador confirmed that she was the one who reached out to Chiu.
"Hindi po kasi maganda kung pipilitan namin. Ngayon, feeling ko 'yung nangyari, perfect timing lahat," she added, referring to the year-long period she and Chiu were estranged.
Asked why she felt it was the right time, Salvador said, "Noong nakita ko siya sa gym... Humingi ako ng sign. Kasi doon sa gym, nag-relax ako, nag-isip-isip... Kasi doon 'yung bonding namin dati, sa gym na 'yon. So parang sabi ko, 'Ay, grabe, ang tagal namin hindi nagkita tapos magkikita kami, dito pa.'"
