“Loving you is such an easy thing to do,” this was how actor Xian Lim captioned one of his Instagram posts during his recent trip to China with girlfriend and fellow ABS-CBN contract artist, Kim Chiu.
The real-life couple, collectively known as KimXi, went to different destinations in China during the holidays.
On her own IG posts, Kim said she was amazed with what she saw at the Terracotta Warriors Museum in Shaanxi. She also marvelled about her encounter with animals in Harbin and posted about their visit to Disneyland (“the happiest place on Earth”) in Shanghai.
In one post, Kim said: “Reconnected to my own self again. Had a trip to a unique country indeed! Learned about their culture and the people, unique in their own way…
“One thing I was amazed is that they don’t have IG, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Viber, Google many more,” Kim added. “‘Coz the government set it up to have their own–Chinese to Chinese only. It took them years to apply these to the entire China.”
The actress said she also learned “that if you really want something, you can’t get it without putting hard work and (without) accepting failure… If you don’t give up, (you) achieve success.”
According to the actor’s post, the couple also went to the province Xian. He captioned his IG post with: “This is a place where my mom got the idea na ipangalan sakin ang Xian. Super happy to be here.”
It was in Nov. 15, 2018, when Kim finally confirmed her relationship with Xian in an interview with “Tonight With Boy Abunda.”
