It all started when UAAP basketball player-model Simon Atkins (@7SimonAtkins) asked his friend Pinoy Big Brother Teen Ex-housemante Josef Elizalde (@josefelizalde) through Twitter to introduce him to young actress Kim Chiu.
"@josefelizalde pssst Kim Chiu! pakilala mo ako ha" Simon tweeted.
On SNN, Kim Chiu admitted that she spoke with Simon Atkins over the phone already.
“Simon Atkins, actually hindi ko siya kilala, naririnig ko lang, hindi ko pa siya nakikilala pero nag-usap na kami. Kasi ‘yong isang friend niya pinakausap sa akin,” Kim said.
Kim also added that she got curious after it was reported that the Green Archers' captain wanted to meet her. She revealed that she put an effort to search his name on the Internet.
"Hindi ko talaga alam. Sinearch ko lang siya sa Google.Okay naman siya. Basketbolista naman siya. 'Yon, thank you kung gusto niya ako makilala," Kim shared.
When asked on how the phone conversation went, Kim said,
"Sandali lang, e, kasi nga may ginagawa nga ako. E, bakit ko siya kakausapin, hindi ko nga siya kakilala? Gusto niya raw ako makausap, so 'yon."
Would she agree to go out on a date with him? “Hindi ko pa alam, depende, depende.” according to the actress.
Doe she like him? "Yes naman, 'no!", Kim said.
Will she will end up being Atkins’ girlfriend in the future?
“Hindi ko alam. ‘Yung pagmamahal, ‘yung boyfriend darating at darating din ‘yan, eh. Hindi naman hinahanap ‘yan. Darating nang kusa ‘yan nang hindi mo alam.”
