TIPS:
Most tricycle drivers in Dumaguete tend to charge you higher so as much as possible learn to haggle.
There are numerous accommodation in Siquijor.  During that time, JJ's do not accept reservation so you might want to contact first if they are willing to do reservations now (you can call the lady owner Jiesa at +63-918-670-0310 for reservation) and make sure you're willing to stay in dorm type accommodation. Nevertheless try other resorts too. 
You can also visit Siliman University and other nearby tourist spots in Dumaguete.
Obviously, we spent too much on the food we eat, you can save a lot by eating cheap. :)
