Kim Chiu recently shared a narrative of her life before becoming one of the most successful female celebrities in the country.
In an episode of Kapamilya Channel’s documentary-drama hosted by Judy Ann Santos, Paano Kita Mapasasalamatan, Kim recalls the struggles that she and her family went through.
“May kaya kami noong bata ako. Growing up, wala, hindi talaga buo 'yung pamilya namin. 'Yung papa ko kasi ahente siya ng gamot. Nagta-travel siya from one country to another, one city to another. So hindi talaga namin siya madalas kasama. Lumaki kami sa mama ko 'yung papa ko dumadalaw-dalaw lang. Hanggang sa nalaman namin na meron nga siyang ibang family,” the actress said.
Kim was just eight years old when her parents separated.
“In fairness sa mama ko naman lahat binibigay niya tapos hindi siya nagsasabi ng masamang salita. Mama ko kasi hindi vocal. Hindi rin siya malambing.”
Kim also revealed that, “Meron kaming tindahan. May store kami and then nagkaroon lang ng problema sa mama ko. And then na-bankrupt kami.”
“Nung panahon na nawala 'yung mama ko dahil nagkaroon siya ng problema sa business side, lumipat kami ng Cebu. Pinalipat kami ng papa ko sa lola namin which is mama ng papa ko. Tapos next sa GenSan, sumunod na year sa Mindoro. Tapos bumalik ulit kami ng Cebu tapos nag-Cagayan de Oro half a year tapos nag-Cebu ulit. Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao,” she narrated.
She furthermore explained that, “Parang sa isang tao iba 'yung sponsor namin. Parang ngayong taon lola ko 'yung magpapatira and magpapaaral. And then next year sino naman? So another tita na naman, next year ibang tita ulit.”
Kim then turned emotional upon saying that she was still thankful despite having those challenges while growing up.
“Nagpapasalamat kami kasi hindi kasi tumitigil sa... Diyos ko, memory lane pala ito. Hindi kami tumitigil sa pag-aaral. Hindi kami pinapabayaan,” Kim said. “Maayos kasi 'yung buhay namin before. 'Yung nandito ka tapos biglang bumaba.”
