MANILA, Philippines - Xian Lim seems not the only guy who has eyes on Kim Chiu with Enrique Gil also rumored to be courting her.
Still, at the press conference tendered for Xian as new McDonald's endorser, he balked at commenting on the matter, simply and playfully sipping his favorite softdrink float and gushing over its taste. Prodded to comment if he's okay with having a ''rival'' in Enrique, Xian chuckled and muttered, ''wala... wala...,'' before saying he's clueless about the ''issue.''
He maintained that he and Enrique are friends and they regularly see each other on the set of the upcoming film, ''The Reunion.''
''Of course there's no problem,'' Xian told Bulletin Entertainment and other members of the press.
More than anything, Xian only wishes for his leading lady's happiness.
''If you care for the person, you always think about what makes her happy,'' he quipped.
He and Kim have been spotted together on a few occasions-the latest of which was at Brian McKnight's Manila concert on Mar. 16. He has also met her family though Xian maintained they're only ''good friends.''
''Lagi ko naman pong sinasabi na si Kim is a very special girl... hindi ako mawawala, I'm always gonna be here for her,'' he said, adding, ''Enjoy naman po kami sa Brian McKnight concert.''
A hot commodity in showbiz these days, Xian is grateful to the blessings coming his way. One of these is his endorsement of McDonald's, a brand he's been patronizing for years. According to Xian, his favorite among the variants of the latest McFloat Summer Medley is the Blueberry Sprite Float. The other flavors in the line are Honey Banana, Four Seasons, Green Apple, and the original Coke Float.
Margot Torres, McDo's vice-president for marketing, enthused at the same press conference that Xian embodies youthfulness and positivity that are in line with the brand's thrust.
