MANILA – Kim Chiu celebrated her 10th showbiz anniversary on “ASAP” with a sizzling dance number set to Rita Ora’s “Body on Me.”
However, she couldn’t help but become emotional upon seeing the greetings of her siblings, as well as those she previously worked with in a pre-recorded video prepared by “ASAP.”
Among those who greeted her were Jake Cuenca, Gloria Diaz, Ariel Rivera, Richard Yap, Pilita Corales, Albert Martinez, Enchong Dee, Aiko Melendez, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Vilma Santos and directors Lauren Diyogi, Joyce Bernal and Mae Cruz Alviar.
Her former boyfriend, actor Gerald Anderson, also congratulated Chiu for reaching a milestone in showbiz.
“Hi, Kim. The most amazing part of this 10-year journey of yours is the woman that you have become. Sobrang mahal mo ang pamilya mo, mahal mo ang trabaho mo. Lahat ng mayroon ka ngayon, you deserve it. Happy birthday and happy anniversary,” Anderson said.
Chiu’s current leading man and suitor, Xian Lim, also has a message for her.
“Napakamatulungin mong kapatid. You serve as the mommy sa buong pamilya mo. Ikaw na ang lahat. Maraming salamat Kim and more power to you,” he said.
Obviously overwhelmed, Chiu said she could not have reached 10 years in showbiz without the support of ABS-CBN and her fans.
“I’m very happy and very blessed to be here. Thank you, thank you to my ABS-CBN family and sa lahat ng mga tao na nagmamahal at sumusuporta sa akin through the years,” she said, while crying.
Chiu will also be holding her 10th anniversary concert at the KIA Theater on April 9.
