Kapamilya stars Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu were known as good friends for a long time, particularly when they co-starred in the 2013 primetime series “Ina, Kapatid, Anak.” However, their friendship was tested when Maja became romantically involved with Kim’s ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.
A year after their rift, the two beautiful actresses were reported to have reconciled their friendship that made many of their fans and supporters really happy.
From that moment, Maja and Kim apparently become inseparable in their many showbiz engagements and as well as some off-cam events. The two also show how much they enjoy each other’s company by sharing some cute photos together on their Instagram accounts. These photos were taken at Times Square in New York last August.
In one of the recent episodes of the morning talk-show Magandang Buhay, Maja Salvador was asked by the momshie hosts to share more details about her sweet photos with her fellow Kapamilya star Kim Chiu in their short yet fun US trip.
After she shared the story behind their trending photo, they also showed Maja a throwback photo with Kim that taken from the romance drama they both top-billed titled “Ina, Kapatid, Anak,” six years ago. They also played a taped video of Kim Chiu, who was also asked to share about the same photo.
Kim said: “One of the most memorable teleseryes na meron kami. Dito sinubok ang aming friendship. It’s so hard to act and everything pero nagawa naman namin with flying colors.”
While Maja is still busy cooking her favorite “Tinola” dish in the show, she also supported her friend’s comment by saying, “Ramdam ko si Kim na nahihirapan din kasi iba ‘yong friendship namin no’n. Ang hirap kasi nandito kami sa industriyang ito tapos dumating na lang ‘yong araw na nagkasalubong kami do’n sa kung saan kami nag-gi-gym before. Biglang naging okay na lang kami bigla.”
The “Chinita Princess” also went on to express how thankful she is for having Maja as her friend, as they have many similarities in terms of their views in life and friendship.
“Sa’ming dalawa ni Maja, nagpapasalamat ako kasi kung ano ‘yong klase ng pagkakaibigan ‘yong gusto ko, ‘yon ‘yong gusto niya. Parehas kami ng paningin sa buhay — kung ano ‘yong tapos na, tapos na. And buti na lang nagkakasundo kami do’n. Nagkakaintindihan kami, and it just shows na no matter what happens, kung ano man ‘yong bagay na nakasira sa’min e pwedeng kalimutan, pwedeng ibalik ‘yong dati” Kim said.
For her part, Maja respond to Kim’s sweet greetings by saying, “Kim, alam mo naman simula pa lang na mahal kita. Alam kong ibang klase ‘yong friendship na meron tayo and alam mong gusto kong ibalik at i-maintain kung anong friendship meron tayo. Masaya ako na naibalik ‘yon at masaya ako na wala tayong pakialam kung may mga hindi pa rin naniniwala sa kung ano mang friendship na meron tayo. Basta masaya tayong dalawa, masaya tayo sa friendship natin. I love you and thank you.”
Aside from having a much stronger friendship with each other, both actresses are also happy in their current romantic relationship, Maja with Rambo Nunez, and Kim with Xian Lim.
