The actress shared photos of her praying and of the fateful day her van was hit with bullets. Seven bullet holes can be seen on her van in the black-and-white photo she posted.
“It has been a year. My faith just grew stronger every day. I woke up being extra grateful for this beautiful and colorful life he has given me,” she said.
“Hindi [pa rin] ako makapaniwala na nangyari yun. Pero lubos ang pasasalamat ko na andito [pa rin] ako (I still cannot believe that happened. But I am so grateful that I am still here).”
Last year, gunmen on motorcycles shot at her van in Quezon City. Chiu was en route to a taping of a TV show when the incident took place. She and her companions in the van were unharmed.
It was supposedly a case of mistaken identity: the actress said in her vlog weeks after the shooting that the actual target apologized to her through one of her bosses. RA
