  • COCKFIGHTING is, indeed, a favorite pastime of Filipinos young and old. They hold it even in small neighborhoods like this one in Zone 1, Barangay San Juan, Molo, Iloilo City. Legal cockfights are held in cockpits while illegal ones called tupada or tigbakay are held in secluded areas where authorities cannot raid them. Cockfighting was already flourishing in pre-colonial Philippines, as recorded by Antonio Pigafetta, the Italian diarist aboard Ferdinand Magellan’s 1521 expedition. DOL FAJARDO/PN
