Kapuso Tween Stars BARBIE FORTEZA and DERRICK MONASTERIO both signed a contract to become the newest TIMEbassadors for UniSilver last Sunday, August 26 at Annabel’s Restaurant in Tomas Morato together with fellow Kapuso stars: Julie Anne San Jose and Enzo Pineda.

Two other Kapuso TIMEbassadors were not able to attend the contract signing.  Bea Binene was out on tour promoting her new album and  Joshua Dionisio called in sick.


15 year old Barbie Forteza or Barbara Ambas Forteza in real life started her career with GMA with the remake of the Koreanovela “Stairway to Heaven” as the young Jodi in 2009.  She also won New Movie Actress of the year in the 26th PMPC Star Awards for the indie film Puntod that year.  She now stars as Blanca in the hit TV series Luna Blanca also with Derrick Monasterio.


Derrick Llander Crimarco Monasterio is the 17 year old son of former actress Tina Monasterio.  Aside from being a great actor, Derick is also a wonderful dancer and singer.  He won the Best Male New TV Personality in PMPC Star Awards for Television 2011.  He also starred in Yam Laranas’ blockbuster movie “The Road” and Octo Arts Films’ “My House Husband.” 

Fans of the Barbie and Derrick love team will now see more of their teen idols through the exclusive watch series named after them as the new UniSilver TIMEbassadors.  The Timebassadors signature watches will be available by November 2012.

According to Ms. Rosiebeth Padua, Sales and Marketing Manager of UniSilver TIME, the wholesome and good image of the said teen idols pushed the said institution to acquire the stars as their endorsers and time ambassadors.

“UniSilver TIME has a very wide range of watch collections. And one of its targeted audiences are the members of the young generation. Since UniSilver TIME is an advocate of youth empowerment, it has created products that would remind the youth to be responsible by observing time properly, thereby giving each young heart the power to reach their dreams. We believe that the Tween Hearts members will serve as the youth’s inspiration for years to come,” said Padua.

The management of UniSilver Time believes that  Derrick, Bea, Barbie, Joshua, Enzo and Julie Anne would serve as good examples for their fans all over the country.
