Owner of an Australian-based company visited Dumaguete for the first time in order to personally meet with his staff who are based in Dumaguete and Manila. My daughter who works as a web developer for this company suggested Sierra Hotel for his place of stay but he later on had something to say about how the hotel charges for the use of some of its facilities. Well, the next time he comes (which he said he will), I will have to put in my own recommendation----an affordable one that has function rooms for meetings which you could use freely for as long as you order food---that's TIP TOP HOTEL. Anyway, I think he likes Dumaguete as a whole even if I told him about some crimes that happen here. His reaction? Well, it happens everywhere.
