After wrapping up a teleserye (The Story of Us) and taking her hosting skills to the next level on The Voice Kids Philippines, what’s next for Kim Chiu?
She reveals that her upcoming role, in real life, is to be a good cook.
‘Isa talaga ‘yan sa goals ko in life: to know how to cook,’ she says. ‘Kasi ‘di ba sabi nga nila, food is the way to a man’s heart?
‘Darating din naman ako sa point na gusto ko na rin ng family, so syempre gusto ko magluto for my own family.’
Kim’s decision to learn cooking makes her an inspiration to those who are just starting out in the kitchen, but beginners like Kim also need all the help they can get from moms, sisters, and friends.
With her showbiz ‘big sisters’ Ai-Ai delas Alas, Judy Ann Santos, and Kris Aquino willing and able to assist her, learning how to cook isn’t going to be impossible for Kim.
In fact, Kim believes it’s going to be fun. She talks about her showbiz ‘ates’ and life pegs:
‘Si Mommy Ai kasi on- and off- cam talaga she’s very entertaining, so ang gaan-gaan ng feeling ‘pag kasama ko siya. Talagang happy lang when you’re with her.
‘Si Judy Ann, #LifeGoals ko talaga siya. Successful siya sa work, successful siya sa family. And pagdating sa acting, sa drama, super galing niya. Idol talaga!’
‘Si Ate Kris Aquino, down to earth talaga siya. Super humble, and super ate talaga siya for me. She gives me pieces of advice about life, so nakakatuwa na merong isang tao na ganun talaga yung trato sa akin sa showbiz.
With these big names who are happy to help her, Kim’s next challenge won’t be impossible to achieve. Especially since these showbiz ‘ates’ of hers also happen to be known as veterans in the kitchen.
Kim shares the kinds of food she wants to cook: ‘Ang top three dishes ko: pancit, super hilig ko talaga sa pancit; kare-kare; and sweet and sour dishes, whether pork or fish.’
Will Kim Chiu successfully include cooking as one of her skills? Let’s follow Kim as she embarks on her cooking journey.(pep)
