    Patricia

    Majority of my friends call me Trish, I guess you could call me that too. I'm a transcriptions editor with a really messed up body clock and never ending affinity for films, food and written words. I like street art, sweets, neutrals and monochromes, sushi, window seats, golf carts and lazy weekends.

    Some of the things that completely preoccupy me are my fixation with the now defunct The Civil Wars and their beautiful art of sadness, Oh Sehun, sleeping, CSS and HTML, @iameden, and those damn hypnotizing Tasty videos. Top country in my travel bucketlist? Iceland. But the one that will always have my heart? Hong Kong.


    Whenever I go home to Cavite, I try, as much as possible, to visit new food joints while spending time with my folks and/or my childhood friends. It still amazes how much the food scene has grown in Cavite! Before, Tagaytay has always been the go-to place in Cavite for the gastronomically adventurous, but spots have sprouted here and there in other areas like Kawit, Imus and Bacoor!

    For this week's #WhenInCavite, Cy and I had a quick late lunch at Cherk's Burger Cafe in Imus. I saw another friend's food posts about Cherk's on Instagram and decided to pay them a visit last Saturday.

    I forgot to take photos of the interiors because I was just too excited to eat. The things I noticed though are I think their pantry's located at the second floor because we kept on seeing food come down from their second storey. Cherk's was also reminiscent of The Black Apartment's aesthetic (predominantly black colors -- though Cherk's has a splash of yellow, wooden tables and chairs, presentation-wise as well) but I'm not entirely sure which one was first to do this.

    Three years ago, traveling was an odd concept to me. I guess it's because I always associated it with being costly -- booking flights, finding the time, pasalubong, extra expenses along the way. I was a total homebody who had difficulties in being new places and meeting people, add the fact that I'm really geographically challenged. Haha! I had all the excuses in the world! Come 2014, I've taken interest due to constant goading by friends and caught the wanderlust bug. I've joined in a couple of trips here and there and have learned to appreciate traveling! And last year was a feat: I was able to travel 8 times across the Philippines!

    Now, do I dare go places that are far less traveled? Why not! I failed to travel solo this year and with that, I thought of challenging myself to go somewhere that's not touristy. And that's when I first heard of the website FlipTrip.ph.

    FlipTrip is a travel platform that aims to bring together travelers and tourists, and the local communities in different destinations to give you a much more intimate and unique travel experience. This in turn creates a win-win scenario for both travelers and local independent businesses, which advances sustainable tourism. They also specialize in organizing trips to remote locations, which usually have incomplete or outdated information online.
