Xian spent the New Year with Kim and her family in Subic. Kim posted some of their photos on Instagram.

“Noong Christmas Day they were in Hong Kong. After Christmas, nakakatuwa kasi ininvite niya ako. I surprised her. Kami naman wala kaming pupuntahan sa New Year. Masaya na nakasama ko si Kim noong bagong taon. Sana ii-invite pa niya ako sa mga susunod na party. I’m happy to be with her,” Xian said.
