If you have to buy food or any other thing, buy them from a store. Don't buy from the streetvendors especially those that sell peanut brittle or the espasol who do their famous puppy dog eyes trick. If you do, you'll find that after this person, the whole tribe will come running after your buck!
To have peace of mind inside the chapel, bring your laptop, bags and other valuables with you. Even with the statue of St, Michael the Archangel in the garden near the parking lot, the car burglars don't fear God.
My daughter brought her officemates to the Pink Sisters after their Planning Session. My daughter brought her bag; her officemate left her laptop, cell phone and bag, and just locked the car's doors. When they went back to the parking lot, the car window was smashed and gone were the laptop, cell phone and bag! The security guard couldn't give any explanation but that he went out to have his lunch for a while. Their car was parked in a sunken portion and was not visible to the guard's post.
If this happens to you, take note: It will take so long before the police can be contacted to go to the convent. Then, it will take so long for you to file a report in the Police Station. If you pursue the case, hearings will take place in Tagaytay. If you don't go, case will be dropped.

This is something we've noticed during our recent visits in Tagaytay. The Main road particularly going to Picnic grove or Sta. Rosa is not well lighted. Ang dilim ng kalye, too dangerous at night especially when driving at high speed. Something that the municipality should look into and improve. But, in fairness, the Rotonda looks good in its new decorative lightings.
It can get foggy in Tagaytay in the afternoon. So, it would be better to start heading home at 4 pm. If not, bring extra clothes so that if the visibility goes zero, you're prepared to stay the night over. Of course, have extra money too.
If you do not want to be mobbed by sweets peddlers, avoid buying any. If you buy from one, they will swarm you and insist that you NEED to buy from them too. Reasons like it is for school lunch money, so they can go home, so they have a lucky buyer will be given to you.
I just declare...."We are diabetic so we do not eat sweets". It always works plus my mom is truly diabetic.
