Pink Sisters in a Caged Room.  
We went to mass a few hours earlier at the Pink Sisters Convent. No, they are not nuns who have pink skin. XD They are nuns dressed up in white and pink. Pink. Cool, huh? Aside from them, I've never seen a group of sisters dressed in pink. Not even one individual nun.

None.

It's been more than a year since we last celebrated mass there. The last time we went there, I remember, the convent was VERY quiet.

It was so quiet, you'd feel awkward and ashamed to cough, that you'll hold it in until the whole mass is over. (I did. XD) It was so quiet, you wouldn't hear a coin drop when the offertory was going on and people were donating to the church. It was so quiet that you'll hear the ceiling fans whirring loudly in the air, distracting you from the priest's sermon. (Sometimes, you'll even feel them vibrating.) It was so quiet, that the only voices you'll hear where the priest's and the singing nuns. (The audience feels too awkward to sing along. Even with the Lord's Prayer. Besides, every song they sang was their own version. Thus, nobody could really relate and sing along.) Nice, huh? There was never a more quiet church.

But the pink-dressed nuns and the quiet atmosphere weren't the only odd things about this small convent.

Dividing the priests and the singing nuns from the attendants was a wide divider with wooden bars. If it were your first time there, you'd wonder, how does the offertory get by? Well, the nuns are the only ones who do participate in that particular ceremony. Then of course, communion. Only during communion do they open the barred doors to the outside world. After that, they close it again. Amazing, huh?

It was nice visiting after such a long time....

I swear, I've never been to a weirder church.

Mood: so-so
