I was about to step out of the house until I heard the sad news in Channel NewsAsia — Lee Kuan Yew passed away. At first I couldn’t believe it so I snuck a peep into Google over my laptop. It was true.
One of Asia’s greatest leaders has gone, beaten by pneumonia.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Lee.
By the time I got to the office, I did some Google searching and noticed a small black ribbon for the Singapore based search engine. Google is quite known to be quirky in their branding for special events.
No surprise there then I thought of checking out the rest.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Dumaguete and don’t mind taking an extra tricycle ride to the place of 15 – 30 minutes, I would recommend Bolmon Guest House.
Bolmon Guest House is a small lodging located close to Siliman Farm and Siliman Beach. The guest house from afar looks like a set of town houses but when you visit inside it’s quite furnished enough for those free and easy groups. The guest house has a lobby (sala) and a multi function room to boot. So group gatherings can be done. The two-storey house also have different room sizes so singles, couples and a family or two can easily stay in.
Though Bolmon does have a feel of home, they do provide room cleaning and have clean sheets and bathroom. In fairness, the bathroom’s size is just enough. They do provide towels, shampoo and soap. Sorry, no toothbrushes. But they do have a cable TV inside. Air conditioning is definitely a yes.
