MANILA, Philippines – Actor Xian Lim said his family’s house in Cainta, Rizal was also hit by floods caused by heavy rains over the past days.

“Baha hanggang dibdib ang tubig,” Lim said in an interview on ABS-CBN morning show “Kris TV” on Friday.

The actor said their house is still submerged in flood water.

“Bungalow kasi ang house so walang second floor. At least mayroong isang step at nandoon sa isang step ‘yung mga gamit. Pumasok ‘yung tubig at hanggang ngayon may tubig pa rin,” he said of the house, which his mother bought 30 years ago.

Despite being a flood victim himself, Lim still did his share in helping those who were hit by the disaster.

The actor said he and actress Kim Chiu, who is being romantically linked to him, bought and packed relief goods and distributed it to flood victims.

“Kami ang pumunta sa supermarket, dinala naming sa house niya, nag-pack [kami] one by one. Galing ni Kim kasi na-plan na niya ‘yung ganoon. Even the day after, mas bumili pa siya ng maraming supplies,” he said.
