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

Welcome to Mad Cherry, a lifestyle blog where we help people who are curious about living a simple, full life get a dose of inspiration through aspirational but actionable content. 

I’m Jorj (the one on the left in the photo above!). Nice to have you here.

What can you expect from this blog?

While this is no longer the online diary I started in 2015, this space continues to be the home of my passion for writing and storytelling. You’ll find stories about life skills I’m trying to hone, along with wellness practices I’m trying to master here.

As a beauty and lifestyle editor by profession, I can’t really stop thinking and writing about, well, beauty and lifestyle topics — from skincare basics to the best travel destinations. Oh, there’s a bit of style sprinkled here too.

So if any of these interests you, have a snack or a cup of your favorite bev ready and join me in this space!

Why did you name your lifestyle blog Mad Cherry?

Seven or so years ago, my husband Yop and I 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. Yop 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.
