My sister, Mutya and I embarked on this idea of making our daddy feel special on his 80th even though he hates making a fuss of such things. We thought it would be a great idea to re-tell the world what kind of an amazing contribution he has made to the movie industry. Thank God for our Uncle Rico Laxa, who helped make this dream happen. I think Daddy was happy.
Here’s a glimpse of our father’s work:
We actually discovered quite a few things about our father that surprised us. Here are fast facts about Tony Ferrer Agent X44 a.k.a the James Bond of Asia:
-an 8th dan Blackbelter
-accomplished 155 movies both locally and internationally. Yes folks, he made it to Hollywood!
-was named best dressed man for 10 consecutive years and his suits were designed and made by his brother , Nick Romano
-his films were blockbuster hits from the 60’s to the late 70’s
-he has 10 suits on standby for his movies and they cannot be stained or wrinkled. He is known for wearing all-white. Funny coz as an agent, it is so easy to sight him and make him a clear target. But hey, that what sells!
-Agent X44 films are known for three C’s: Clothes, Cars and Chicks! I mentioned the clothes already. He’s also driven the coolest cars and kissed amazing women in his movies and most of them flown in from Hollywood! Haha!
Today, Tony Falcon lives a simple life away from the limelight but he still exudes that aura of a dashing hero.

I’m glad we got to relive his glory days even for a day. It’s worth looking back to and surely one our children will cherish as being part of.
