La Paloma by Ely Buendia in Kingpin Trailer

October 30, 2011

Yesterday, I met Tikoy and Yuka, and they told me about the trailer that they have edited. It’s posted on Youtube, entitled MTV Kingpin – The Asiong Salonga Story. Unfortunately, the quality is not good.

Then, this morning I received a text message from Gov. Jeorge Estregan informing me of the same film’s new trailer they posted on facebook. But I have no facebook account, so I can’t get the link.

Both trailers are interesting. Afterall, Asiong was an interesting guy. And the treatment of Tikoy is quite different from all the previous Asiong films made from Erap’s time. La Paloma has become the film’s theme song. And Ely Buendia’s rendition will be remembered and loved by many because he sang it with his heart and soul strongly felt by the listeners.

“Kingpin — The Asiong Salonga Story” starring Jeorge Estregan Jr. is the comeback film of Tikoy Aguiluz. The screenplay was written by Roi Iglesias and friend Rey Ventura. I edited the film with Yuka’s assistance.



  1. Hi Ate Mirans, napanood ko pareho. Sa La Paloma, ang credit ay ganito: arranged and performed by Ely Buendia. Dapat isama, Lyrics by Rey Ventura. Para fair. Di ko nasami kay Direk at kay Maylyn. Pero mag-eemail ako ngayong gabi. Musta ka na.

  2. Tama sulatan mo si Tikoy. Text ko sya mamya. Sabihin ko din kay Yuka para pag nag upload sila ng panibagong copy na mas high res dapat maikredit sa iyo ang lyrics. Btw, sakto ba sa original lyrics mo nagamit? Kung may nabago, ano ba SOP dun? Anyway, Balita ko uwi ka sa Nov 10? Wag mo kalimutan ang ukay cam! Attend tayo press conference.
