Sister Hilda is one the Catholic nuns managing the retreat house of their order in Tamontaka. As I and colleagues from PhilRights have used their facilities for training of teachers a few times already, we somehow became so relaxed around her. She's a very sweet person who always exhibit a happy exterior which I believe springs genuinely from inside. She is into healing practices and sells special healing oils my favorite of which is that with aroma of mandarin. Here she lovingly cuddles her hairy dog.
