“Kim, nakikilala mo ba ko?” Kuya asked his Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Big Winner.
This surprise phone call happened on day 10 of the community quarantine that is being enforced throughout Luzon. Kim Chiu was not expecting the reunion but was more than thrilled to catch up. It was as if her home was transformed into a confession room. “Hello, Big Brother. Long time no talk,” she greeted.
The Love Thy Woman star talked about how she spent six weeks inside the PBB house as a housemate. So, this community quarantine is nothing new. To stay active, Kim challenged herself to do 1,000 jump ropes a day. Aside from this, she keeps busy by counting the seconds in a day as well as waiting for the sunrise and sunset. “Wala ibang magawa, Big Brother,” she said.
More importantly, the actress is perfectly healthy. Now, she can stay healthy thanks to the BIG 4 tips that Kuya had to offer. This guideline is key as the nation work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Get enough sleep. Most of us are stuck at home which means we should be able to set at least seven hours a day for rest. “Huwag ka magpupuyat kahit pa walang pasok kinabukasan,” Kuya said. Couple this with exercise. It is possible to have an active lifestyle without going outside. The goal is to not lie in bed all day.
Eat nutritious food. Some of Kim’s personal favorites are kalabasa, okra, talong, and malunggay. This will also help improve one’s immune system. At the end of the day, a healthy body is our best defense against COVID-19.
This was a call between Kim Chiu and Big Brother, but the tips apply to every Kapamilya under the community quarantine. “Kung hindi naman kailangan lumabas, huwag na lang lumabas. Mas safe tayo sa loob ng mga bahay natin and kasama natin ‘yung mga pamilya natin,” she added. To those who still have to work and risk being exposed to the virus, she wants to remind people to wash their hands and practice social distancing.
