About Us

Welcome to Mad Cherry!

 

jorj and yop

 
Hi! We’re Jorj and Yop, full-time editors by day and passion-pursuers every moment in between.

We want to help people who are curious about living a simple, full life get a dose of inspiration through aspirational but actionable content. We cover mindful beauty and style topics, food spots we hope you’ll try, and travel destinations that are great for couples and families.

As young professionals, we also share tips and tricks about handling finances and finding the right path to one’s dream career. We have a young daughter, so making sure we see her grow up healthy is a must; let’s take you on our road to being fit and healthy (in mind and body). We’re a young family and we’re still new to the nesting thing, so you’ll definitely see some of our inspirations and shenanigans in interior decoration here, too. We love all kinds of art, so expect to see book, TV shows and movie reviews as well.

Why Mad Cherry?

Seven or so years ago, Jorj, the author of this website, and her husband Yop were watching a channel airing different US series (we’re currently based in the Philippines, by the way). The ad for one show said “match airing”, which means the series will air here at the same time it’s airing in the US. Her husband misheard it and asked, “Babe, what’s mad cherry?” And the rest, they say, is history. Aside from its cute origin, this site was named after the misheard phrase because of this quote:

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.
