Minex Crystals by Sylvia Mariano: Powerful Crystals that can Change Your Life

I have always been fascinated with crystals. Well, you can call it serendipity when I recently stumbled upon Minex Crystals, a showroom (filled with all the crystals you need) along J. Bocobo Street in Malate, Manila while I was doing my shopping at Robinson’s Place nearby. I love crystals and their ability to subtly but profoundly change our energy, health and aura. And maybe it was truly my lucky day because I was also given the opportunity, not only to meet but be given numerology, destiny life path and graphology reading by Minex Crystal's owner herself, Ms. Sylvia Mariano! I will tell you more about her readings later, but first allow me to share with you what I know about crystals and its powers.

Each type of stone gives off its own unique form of subtle energy.  The particular energy given off by a stone is determined by its internal crystalline structure, and by the atomic vibrations that are specific to that structure.  Certain stones, including most of the stones normally thought of as healing stones, vibrate in a way that resonates with and strengthens particular energies inside each person.  These are the energies of the inner self, the energies that make up the attitudes and human qualities of a person.  This resonance can occur because the inner self operates by using a type of subtle energy that is similar to the subtle energy of crystals and stones.  The reason this type of energy is called "subtle energy" is because, although it is physical, it is less physical in nature than normal types of energy such as heat, electricity or mechanical energy.

Crystals and stones can be of really good help in personal growth, but keep in mind that they are not magic.  What they do is give you an edge in growth because of how the vibrations of their crystalline structure interact with the inner self.  Crystals and stones have the ability to resonate with the different energies of the inner self, thereby strengthening those energies.  This additional strength gives you the internal boost your energies need to make it easier to take steps towards growth.  It gives you the extra insight and determination you need to take the leap of faith that is necessary in adopting a new attitude.  It also gives you the strength to not be afraid to change something about yourself.  But in spite of all this, you must still do the actual learning and growing on your own.
As I was saying earlier, I was fortunate to be given a personalized reading session by Ms. Sylvia. In as much as I'd like to share with you details of what she had said about me, it's a little bit personal that doing so would mean divulging too much about myself on my blog (and I wouldn't really want to do that because I'm such a private person). Anyway, Ms. Sylvia gave me some insights about my life path as well as what I can do to make it better. The one-on-one personalized reading session can help one make clear decisions in various areas of one's life. As long as you come with an open mind, your experience will be a very pleasant one. Similar to taking an online-quiz about one's personality, Ms. Sylvia's readings simply help me learn about myself and in what I can do to help improve shady areas of my life. I was able to understand my life path, my destiny number as well as what I can do to fix what I lack in both energy and vibration.
As I gained insights into my personality (and I swear, until now I couldn't believe that she's got it all right about my personality yet it's only the first time that I've seen her). The reading session actually felt like another way for self discovery. Ms. Sylvia was very helpful in guiding me through the reading session and she was receptive in answering all the queries I had and everything I thought was unclear about. 
Through the said reading, I learned that I lacked four items (out of nine) in order to complete the vibration and energy I needed. Crystals affect the human body by virtue of their vibration in the same way any one thing affects any other thing. The human body is crystalline in nature, though, and that is why crystals and humans connect so deeply. 
Although it's been said that humans are designed to carry their own vibration, a crystal, aside from being a very nice tool (and friendly too) assists one in regaining vibrational alignment. Did you know that crystals can help with your law of attraction success? Yes, you're reading it right. 

This is The All-in--One Bracelet I bought from Minex Crystals
I bought a personalized bracelet from Minex Crystals to align my vibrations and energy. A personalized bracelet is a collection of different stones to fill my missing energy. It is also believed to balance my energy and uplift my power as a person. It's necessary to fight all the negative vibrations from the environment as well as from the people I meet every single day. In order to assist certain areas of my love life (ehem...yes, apparently, it exists in my life), I needed the Love Bracelet too. 

This is the Love Bracelet to help increase my appeal on the opposite sex
So what makes Minex Crystals a cut above the rest? I'm sure you guys are wondering what makes it a standout? For one, I love the fact that they use only authentic and genuine crystals. What they have are real powerful crystals and they do not incorporate plastic ones (unlike the others)in bracelets, necklaces and other accessories they make, instead they use separators. So you're guaranteed that you're actually getting exactly what you've paid for. The prices are also reasonable enough. And you could also make an appointment for your personalized reading with Ms. Sylvia for free. 
I was so happy with my purchase that night that I went home feeling so positive not just due to the purchases I've made from Minex Crystals but also because I could sense that my life will no longer be in such a deep rut. After the reading I've had with Ms. Sylvia, I know how to turn my life all around. Sometimes, it's not just the attitude, but knowing yourself well enough also plays a huge factor. Ms. Sylvia also stressed that to succeed in every endeavor, one must learn to work hard and establish good relationship with other people.

True enough, a few days after I started wearing my Minex Crystals bracelets (after having them cleansed and programmed), things started to get going for me. It's as if everything else is falling on their right places. I've made a few client deals after what seemed like some kind of slump for a couple of months. What's more, new opportunities are also coming my way. No kidding, I've never felt so optimistic in my life, except now! My fave author, Paulo Coelho once said, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." With a positive outlook in life while wearing these Minex Crystals bracelets, it's easier for me to visualize the things that I would want to achieve plus all the other goals I have in this life. 
Interested? Curious what these precious crystals can do for you? Would you like to get a free reading as well? (Yes, they're free provided you book for an appointment.)

John Legend's daughter Luna joins him on his Darkness and Light Tour

Singer John Legend

Parents want nothing but to be able to spend more time with their kids. Many parents feel that the main reason why they couldn’t spend more time with their children are because of their jobs and the difference with schedules. And, if there’s one thing that parents wish the most – it’s to be able to spend more time with their kids without worrying about any missed deadlines and schedule at work.

Not unless you can take your family with you to work.  We’ve seen more and more celebrity parents do this and it’s wonderful to think that even at work, parents can still spend time with their kids. The recent addition to this list is the lovely Legend – Teigen duo.

John Legend with wife Chrissy Taigen and daughter Luna

During his recent Facebook Live session on Monday evening, Legend, 38, announced that his lovely wife, Chrissy and their adorable daughter, Luna Simone, will be with him during the Darkness and Light Tour. So aside from listening to Legend’s admirable music, fans might also have the chance to see Luna, who knows.

Repertory Philippines presents Agnes of God: A Murder Mystery in a Convent

Repertory Philippines, more popularly known as REP, celebrates its 50 years by bringing back this gripping and thought-provoking drama, Agnes of God, in celebration of its golden anniversary.

Written by notable playwright John Pielmeier, Agnes of God was a long running hit on Broadway which opened in 1982, and adapted into film in 1985. The play explores the lives of three women and their own dark pasts. Their stories are interwoven into the mysterious case of the young nun Agnes who is accused of conceiving and killing her own baby in the convent.

REP first staged Agnes of God back in 1983 with veteran actress Pinky Amador playing the role of Agnes for which she won Best Actress in the 1983 Aliw Awards. Pinky returns in this re-staging of the critically-acclaimed production, but this time as Mother Miriam Ruth, the strong-willed Mother Superior who fiercely protects Agnes and claims her pregnancy was an Immaculate conception.

Kwentong Jollibee: Heartwarming Short Love Stories for Valentine's Day

Jollibee, the well-loved fast food chain in the Philippines recently launched three new heartwarming short stories or ads dubbed as "Kwentong Jollibee" in time for Valentine's Day. The three short stories were aptly titled: The Vow, Date and Crush. Each story features how Jollibee played a huge part of our lives. Each Kwentong Jollibee episode will surely touch your hearts in time for the so-called season of love. The stories are said to be inspired by true stories.

The Vow

Ever had that one guy who becomes your soul mate, who does everything for you, who would always be there each time you need him? He gives nothing but unconditional love but he's not expecting anything in return. It's enough for him to see you happy. "The Vow" tells the story of a man who fell in love with a girl he first met at a Jollibee store. 

Directed by Ianco Dela Cruz, the story had a different twist that will surely make you go and shout "Awww." Witness how love takes on a different form towards the ending of the story. This is my personal favorite. I'm sure most hopeless romantics will get to love this!

"The Vow" will be available on Facebook and Youtube on February 9,2017 at 5PM.


"Date" gives one the realities of life. But it perfectly sends us the message that true love never dies. People don't really die if we keep a good memory of them. If we just think about that person once in a while, then our love for him will always be alive for us. 

Directed by Pepe Diokno, "Date" showed how a young lad surprised his mother on Valentine's Day by following instructions to the letter from his Dad. The son was able to manage a lovely date with his mom complete with their favorite Jollibee favorites. A perfect example indeed of an endless love. 

"Date" will be made available on Facebook and Youtube on February 10, 2017 at 5PM.


Directed by Joel Ruiz, "Crush" is a story set in 1980's. This is a story which appeals to hopeless romantics. With loads of kilig moments, "Crush" will make you want to fall in love again. 

"Crush" is a charming tale about a college guy who's heads-over-heels in love with his schoolmate. He would send her Jollibee's Yum Burger with notes on them (because it was her ultimate favorite snack) but he remains anonymous. Decades later, he would still make the same romantic gesture for the love of his life. 

"Crush" will be made available on Facebook and Youtube on February 11, 2017 at 3PM.

Coincidentally, our favorite Jollibee Tuna Pie is back for a limited time only! They're perfect for the upcoming lenten season.

So Tuna Pie fans, take advantage of this opportunity. Get them now while they last!

There are countless stories that happen within each Jollibee stores as it has served as witness to the most touching part of our lives. Make sure to watch #KwentongJollibee Valentine Series because it's meant to make your hearts-a-flutter!

Hong Kong Tourism Board Launches "Best of All, It's in Hong Kong" Campaign

The Hong Kong Tourism Board recently launched their latest marketing campaign in the Philippines with the catchy phrase, "Best of All, It's in Hong Kong" to showcase the rich diversity and experience what Hong Kong has to offer to visitors around the world. Hong Kong is basically a favorite destination among Filipinos. It's not hard to see why. With all the shopping destinations as well as amusement parks like Disneyland, Madame Tussauds and Ocean Park among many others, there are lots of tourist attractions to enjoy. Not to mention real good food that Hong Kong has to offer. I mean, come on, as a traveler, what's there to ask for?

Purple Plum Fairy and her friend at The Peak Tram

One of my first trips abroad was in Hong Kong back in the summer of 2015. I have just partly recovered from the traumas brought about by the accident my family and I had encountered in the previous year. But it was an opportunity too good to pass up. So I packed my bags and head to Hong Kong with my good friend, Ai. Hong Kong was the best destination for us that summer because it's only about an hour and a half away from Manila. Discovering Hong Kong was a bit easy. First of all, upon touch down at the airport, maps are abound. The best part? You can access these maps for free. 

These maps from Hong Kong welcomed me upon my arrival at the Hong Kong International Airport
