Barbie Forteza and Jak Roberto

BARBIE Forteza and BF Jak Roberto are together again in the vlog that Jak maintains. They had a Q&A with their fans and, for the first time, they revealed the details of their very first date two years ago when a fan asked them if they like eating ramen noodles.

“Ang totoo, yung first date namin, sa isang ramen house,” says Jak. “Ako ang nag-introduce sa kanya ng ramen. Manonood kami ng movie pero sabi ko, mag-lunch muna kami, Meron akong alam na ramen house at gusto kong ma-try niya. Iba-iba ang levels ng pagiging spicy and she chose level 3. Sabi ko, maanghang yan, baka hindi mo kaya. And she said, okay lang, mahilig ako sa maanghang. Kung level 2 lang, baka mabitin ako. Nagustuhan naman niya and the next time, level 4 na ang kinuha niya. Doon ako naniwalang hot talaga siya. Ha ha ha! So from that time on, naging paborito naming bonding place ang ramen house na yun.”

Barbie and Jak have a good time watching themselves in the replay of their hit romantic-comedy show, “Meant to Be”, weeknights. “Nakakatuwa lang kasi binabalikan namin yung mga araw na hindi pa kami that time,” says Barbie. “But doon sa ‘Meant to Be’ nagsimula ang lahat, sa kulitan, sa kuwentuhan. Hindi kami ang nagkatuluyan doon kasi si Ken Chan ang naging kapareha ko. But in real life, alam nyo naman kung kanino talaga ako napunta. Ang sarap lang mag-reminisce talaga.”

Barbie says she missed taping her show with Kate Valdez, “Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday”. “Masaya kami sa set kaya nakaka-miss lahat ng co-stars namin, including Tita Snooky Serna who plays my mom and Tita Dina Bonnevie na mom naman ni Kate. Nagte-text namin kami ngayon to keep in touch.”

Her new love team with Migo Adecer in the show has gained a lot of fans. What can she say about this? “Aba, siempre, nagulat kami. Hindi namin akalain ni Migo na may maganda palang chemistry on screen. Maraming natutuwa sa tambalan namin, so salamat naman. Ang wish ko lang, matapos na sana ito corona lockdown para makapag-resume na kami ng taping. Panay na rin ang tanong regular followers ng show kung kailan kami babalik, e. Maski ako, naiinip na rin.”

“Meant to Be” is currently being aired from 9:30 PM to 10:15 PM, after “Kambal Karibal” and before “My Husband’s Lover”.
