Former Secretary of the Department of Budget and former Central Bank Governor Jaime Laya, a life-long patron of the arts, has written about the FPPF coffee table book, SULTADA, the only sabong (cockfighting) book through the eyes of photographers. The book is a compilation of photographs from prize-winning photographers, with essays by professional writers. FPPF President Pablo Beltran is prime-mover for the book’s publication.

“Did you know that standing a fighting cock on a tabletop guarantees that you’ll have the toughie for dinner? Sabong is here to stay,” said Laya, in his column today in The Manila Bulletin.

SULTADA is available from the FPPF, call telephone 524-7576, or go to the link below:
