    After speaking with the owner of True Love, and earlier in the night, with Gerry I believe that this thread can be opened again. If any users would like to carry on with the exchange that happened a few days ago I would ask that you do so in person and not via the keyboard. I have a feeling that doing so in person will clear up a lot of the problems and conflict presented a couple days ago. I am certainly not taking a side on the subject and will remain neutral because I feel that both sides have solid points and arguments.

    That being said, I will ask for two things here (and with other business review threads/showcases as well) though:
    1. If you have not personally visited a restaurant/business please do not critique/review a business owner's business, food or practices. Questions and requesting more information to be posted is fine but criticism should be made from first hand experience. We all know that words can get twisted, experiences exaggerated/played down and context can be lost or misinterpreted when coming from sources other than yourself. It is completely understandable that a business owner would get frustrated with reviews and criticism coming from people who have never been in their establishment. I will also not approve any "Anonymous" or guest posts that are leaving reviews.
    2. I will also ask that business owners replying to reviews/experiences (both positive and negative) please do so in a professional and courteous manner. Not only does telling people to bugger off hurt your business and livelihood, it also breaks forum rules. I'm not telling anyone how to run their business or act within their own establishment here, I'm just trying to provide and environment that is beneficial to both business owners and customers and replying with attacks and/or snide comments does nothing to help me out with this.....and it simply won't be tolerated on this forum.
    As mentioned above, these Showcase pages/reviews are meant to offer an environment for business owners to help show the community that they are there and offer a bit of free advertising, it also provides a way for customers to share their experiences at these businesses so that others may determine if the business is a place they might like to visit. Positive reviews are great and shows owners what they are doing right. Negative reviews (and almost all businesses will get a one or two of them) should be seen as an opportunity for owners to improve their business (or not, and just be seen as insight to what customers are thinking). The important thing here is for everyone to remain respectful with their reviews, criticism and replies and to not take these comments personal. Without this, having a review section is completely pointless and will result in nothing but conflict and eventually avoidance of posting businesses and reviews....which doesn't help anyone out.

    Note: These rules apply to every member on this forum including moderators and myself. I'm human and do frequently screw up. If you see a moderator or myself breaking the forum rules do not be afraid to call us out on it or, preferably, hit the "Report" link under the offending post. There is more than one moderator for this exact reason.

    Popped in again last night an glad we did so.

    Bought a bottle of wine with us and just as soon as we arrived the very perishable owner opens and brings it back in a ice bucket. Nice and cosy inside, no traffic noise and air con. He joined us and we chatted for some hours. Amazing bloke, my partner is keen on baking so not only did he share many secrets but insisted on lending books on same.

    Really he is his own worst enemy, the complimentary which is lovely vege curry and corn bread is a meal in itself....So much so we could only manage a main between us and where totally full.

    Delightful evening, charming host and hostess and total bill comes to P180. One feel guilty even with a decent tip which he does not encourage.

    Mods pease move this to True Love thread if more appropriate.

    Having dined alone at true love (excellent fish) once my partner arrived the following day we decided try a breki there.
    Delighted to report excellent unlimited brewed coffee, huge bowl of soup which was totally unexpected plus what we ordered a vege omlette which was delicious. Orville the owner, host really goes the extra mile to fill one and give satisfaction..

    I had a chance to chat with his delightful wife the previous evening whom confirmed his heart is as big as the body. All earnings over expenses are channeled into projects helping the kids. The guy deserves a medal and well worthy of our support.

    By way, although I has written quite a few posts here, I have zero financial or any other interest in True Love other than giving credit where it's due.

    Guys this is definitely worth a mention.
    Laste time in Dumaguete we did mention to Orville in passing we were trying to buy dates, without success.

    Last night we dined there again, most surprised when he bought out two large packs of dates, fresh from middle east. Would take nothing for them, said more pleasure in giving....

    We enjoyed a lovely grilled fish, delicious verges and rice. As always served up with out charge is lovely corn bread with vegetables soup, a meal in itself.

    This has to be the most affordable resto in Dumaguete serving healthy wonderful food, a nice environment with great ambiance.

    For those not yet visited, do it and bet your not disappointed.

    About 5 years ago, 4 of us started a charity group here called the Thursday Club with the sole purpose to assist the poor children here with 100% of the money going toward the projects. We invited Rhoody to join and he agreed we could post our charity projects on DI Forum along with a contact if anyone wanted to join our group or offer any funds or labor for our projects. Our projects included making upgrades to some elementary schools in need, an annual Christmas presents for sick children at the provincial hospital, and food relief following the Sendong typhoon.
    My point is that we never personally asked for support but many members came forward joining our team and/or giving money to help. In fact we were surprised at the support we had when we posted a project, even members who were overseas wired money. So from that experience, I agree with Gerry that putting a flyer announcing your project and inviting those that were interested to help out.
