MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University basketball player-model Simon Atkins’ dream to talk to young actress Kim Chiu finally came true.

In a press conference, Chiu told ABS-CBN News that she spoke with Atkins over the phone on Tuesday.

Chiu admitted that she got curious after it was reported that the UAAP basketball player wanted to meet her.

To satisfy her curiousity, she confessed that she searched Atkins on the Internet.

"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," Chiu said.

"Sabi ko, ‘Bakit ko siya kakauusapin?’ Gusto daw akong makausap," she added.

Would she agree to go out on a date with him? "Hindi ko pa alam, depende, depende."

Chiu is said to be the former girlfriend of actor Gerald Anderson, her longtime on-screen partner.

The young actress said she is not searching for love right now. "'Yong pagmamahal… darating at darating 'yan. Hindi naman hinahanap 'yan. Darating ng kusa 'yan ng hindi mo sinasadya," she said.

As for actor Jason Abalos, Chiu’s rumored suitor, the actress said Abalos is just a friend.

"Si Jason kasi mabait siya… Sobrang bait niya, palabiro, joker, pero 'yon, magkaibigan lang muna kami," Chiu said.
