Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu proved once more that she is a force to be reckoned with in social media as she reached the 11 million followers mark on her Instagram account.
Chiu happily announced the milestone via a post yesterday, Dec. 5, where she also shared a short festive video of herself playing with balloons and dancing before a backdrop, bearing the sign “11M.”
“This morning woke up to 11M of you here in IG,” Chiu said. She then recounted the day she was about to start coming up with her own Instagram account.
“I remember when I was just setting up my first social media account as ‘artista’ which is Instagram, didn’t know what my user name will be. Thinking of….will I go for this? am I ready to share my everyday life on the internet?” she recalled.
Chiu revealed that it was her boyfriend, fellow actor Xian Lim, who encouraged her to make her own Instagram account, while comedian Kakai Bautista gave it a name.

“After I made an account I messaged Xi, ‘May IG na ako (I already have an IG account)!!!!!!’ Actually ginawa ko ata ‘to (I did it) before kasi gusto sha makausap! haha (because I want to talk to him, laughs),” she added.
“How cool was that till now it is still my username and I am happily sharing my everyday life with all of you,” Chiu said. “Through Instagram, I can show the world what I can see, as one of my favorite sayings says ‘Your life is your message to the world, make it inspiring.’”
Finally, she thanked her Instagram followers for “joining [her] on this journey.” JB
