MANILA – Will Kim Chiu be attending this year’s Star Magic Ball with Xian Lim?

That remains to be seen as the “Ikaw Lamang” actress told ABS-CBN News that the actor has yet to ask her to be his date in the annual grand reunion of Kapamilya stars.

“Hindi pa niya ako ini-invite eh,” she simply said. “Malungkot naman kapag mag-isa ka lang maglalakad.”

Last year, Chiu and Lim won the Fabulous Pair Award.

Nonetheless, Chiu said she is looking forward to attending the event and be with the talented stars of ABS-CBN.

“Nakaka-excite magsuot ng magagandang damit. Hindi siya costume mo sa teleserye or sa movie. Choice siya ng mga artista. Siyempre iniidolo mo naman lahat ng nandoon so parang ang sarap tignan na maganda ang mga itsura niyo sa totoong buhay,” she said.

Unlike her gown last year, Chiu will be wearing a simpler dress as she does not have a lot of free time to prepare for the annual ball.

“Hindi ako masyadong nakapaghanda ngayon kasi taping tapos shooting. Ipagpapaubaya ko na lang kay Pepsi (Herrera) at sa glam team ko yung buong look ko this Saturday,” she said.

“Mas simple. Ayaw ko na ma-stress, gusto ko na umupo. Tiis ganda kasi ang tawag doon. Ngayon para iba naman, kung mataba dati, mapayat na siya ngayon. Konting tela na lang ang gagamitin namin,” she added.

According to Chiu, she also had a hand in coming up with the design of her gown.

“Siyempre dapat confident ako sa suot ko. Hindi yung kapag suot ko, bakit parang ayaw ko? Hindi ko gusto yung fit? Hindi lalabas sa itsura mo na masaya ka. Parang malungkot, napilitan ka lang. Hindi pwedeng ganun,” she said.

Does she still feel pressured to look her best in the upcoming ball?

“Nakakakaba kasi parang bawat labas mo, ‘Ay ang ganda, ay ang ganda.’ Naku paano kaya this year? Magugustuhan din kaya nila? Kasi hindi na masyadong fairytale yung suot ko eh,” she said.

This year’s Star Magic Ball will be held on Saturday at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.
