Kim Chiu reacts to her mysterious photo with a ‘Tikbalang’

Kim Chiu made the internet freak out after she posted a photo that seemed to contain "creatures" that are not visible to regular eyes.

The photo in question was uploaded on Tuesday, October 6, and it showed the actress resting in a chair, inside an old house — which was one of the locations for her upcoming horror film “U-Turn.”

She wrote, “Andiyan na sila..... ⛔️🚸⛔️. Nakikita mo ba? 👁”

While the photo has an eerie vibe, us ordinary mortals wouldn't be able to spot what mysterious element was hiding in the photo. In the virtual media conference for “U-Turn” on Wednesday, October 7, Kim addressed the mystery.

She revealed that her sister Lakam’s psychic saw a Tikbalang behind her. A Tikbalang is a Filipino mythical creature believed to be half-human and half-horse.

“Kagabi ko pi-nost [‘yung picture]. Tapos nag-message ‘yung psychic ng Ate Lakam ko. Sabi, ‘Nagshu-shoot pa ba diyan si Kimmy? Sabihin mo ‘wag na siyang tumambay dyan sa kwartong ‘yan.’ Kasi may nakikita daw siya. Tapos binilugan niya ‘yung bintana. Kasi luma ‘yung bahay eh, luma talaga siya.”

“Doon ako nilagay, standby area [ko]. Sinabi noong psychic, binilugan niya, meron daw tikbalang. Sabi ko, ‘Bakit ganoon, umaga talaga, Lakam, pinakita mo sakin ‘yan ah.’ May mata, may ilong. So parang weird. May weird feeling na talaga sa kwarto na ‘yun. Akala ko sa kama. Kaya nasa chair ako. ‘Yung bintana pala. Kaya ayoko rin humarap sa bintana.”

Kim said that she doesn’t have a third eye so she couldn’t see the tikbalang.

“Sa mga friends natin diyan na may third eye, nandun siya sa may bintana,” she said. “Nag-send pa ako ng ibang picture [sa psychic] ng site na ‘yun. May binilugan din siya so parang ayoko na makita.”
