What Kim Chiu thinks of Stephen Curry

OMG to the nth level! #StephenCurry (Stephen Curry) in the house! @stephencurry30 #ngitingtagumpay (ngiting tagumpay) [triumphant smile].
I really don’t have an idea of meeting him today in person, accept defeat na ako [I already accepted defeat].
But tito @bcloma called me this afternoon saying may ticket siya [he has a ticket], so since the shoot got cancelled, I rescheduled my ASAP rehearsal and went straight to MOA!
Who would have thought from #thatfeeling (that feeling) #hanggangTshirtnlng (hanggang T-shirt na lang) [up to T-shirt only] will become a reality!
He is super nice, takes pictures here and there with autograph pa [too] on the side!
Thank you @gretchenho for taking the pictures!
Grabe [too much] roller coaster fan girl experience! Love his family! Hi @ayeshacurry.
