WATCH: Kim Chiu sprints to beat traffic, makes it to fashion show in time for finale walk
Kim Chiu took matters into her own hands and ran as fast as she could—not only to avoid traffic, but to make it to a fashion event on time.
The Kapamilya actress was part of the Bench Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 held at the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig, on Friday. While on her way to the event, she got stuck in a horrendous traffic as one road was closed for an electoral campaign.
“Really?!!!! May kampanya sa gitna ng daan?!!!!” Chiu expressed on her Instagram Story. “Sarado ang daan on a Friday afternoon??!! Sana umabot ako!!!”
(Really?! There’s a campaign in the middle of the road?! A road closed on a Friday afternoon?! I hope I can make it!)
Chiu, who is a runner herself, then documented how she and her crew dashed to the event in an Instagram post. “[T]raffic is so unpredictable nowadays!!!” she expressed.
“[G]ood thing the runner in me activated right away!!” she added, saying that she ran three kilometers in 10 minutes—from the BGC entrance to the Bench Tower where the show was held—just to make it to the show on time.
Chiu quipped that she changed clothes “like The Flash” upon arriving at the show and went to the backstage. Although she said she missed her spot, she was able to make it to the finale walk.
” WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!” she said of what happened. “[P]robably one of the most memorable fashion [shows] I had ever walked in!!!!”
