1. Happiness will always find its way. You might be having a rough time with your life right now,   but don’t worry. Joy will make her way just to see you smile again.

2. Don’t let anger control your life. It can ruin your islands of personality. When we let anger control our emotions, everything will not be okay. It can ruin a skill, a relationship, a trait or even our family ties. 

3. Fear can save us from any danger. We need this to be able to be safe and not to be a dare devil at all times but too much of it will not let us grow as a brilliant and adventurous person. 

4. Disgust can give us taste or style. She teaches us how to be fab and to be cool. It is her forte.

5. Sadness balances the emotions. Especially if we are too happy. It let us connect and listen to the    people around us. 

6. Joy will not always be around because nothing last forever. Sometimes we need to let sadness or other emotions take over. Cry once in a while to slow down and think about the solutions in life’s problem. It is somehow telling us, it is okay to be sad and to cry. We are human beings, it is normal to be emotional once in a while. Show your feelings. Don't suppress it.

7. Always have a positive outlook in life just like Joy.

This movie really explains how the emotions and the memories work in our brains. I learned a lot of moral lessons I can apply in my life. Yes! real life situations. Pixar's did it again. As always, they taught us some valuable lessons in their animations. BRAVO! Bingbong made me cried too. So how about you? Any thoughts on this movies? Lessons perhaps that you want to share? Share it below.

The Verdict: 4.8 stars out of 5 stars

Tropical Hallim Park in Jeju, South Korea is a nature park with 9 different themes on 80 hectares of land. It is a divine experience to be with Mother Nature. The trees, flowers, ponds and animals are the best assets of the goodness of the earth. I love the feeling when I have a break from the busy scenes of the city. It gives me good vibes. Breathing fresh air from the surrounding contributes to the beauty of the place. It clears my mind and helps me appreciate life even more.

Today, I will virtually tour and post some random photos from our trip in Hallim Park. It has nine different themes such as the following:

  • Hyeopjae and Ssangyong Cave
  • Jeju Stone and Bonsai Garden
  • Wild grass and Flower Garden
  • Jae-Am Folk Village
  • Bird Garden
  • Subtropical Botanic Garden
  • Palm Tree Avenue
  • Stone Exhibit Hall
  • Water Garden

Let's start!!!

Of course! The ticket booth. A ticket cost 10,000 won per adult but for groups of 30 or more it will cost 8,000 won. If we convert it to Philippine pesos, it will only cost around 390+ php per adult and for groups it will cost 312+ php per person. It will imply 80php discount for groups of 30 or more. Horey! 

The Map. We were planning to visit the cherry blossoms unfortunately it was closed that time. I think their season was over during the month of May. huhu SAD!

Join SAZZY FALAK and JEANNIE MAI in the all-new Asian take on the popular US hit makeover series

Style icons Jeannie Mai (left) and Sazzy Falak (right) on DIVA’s How Do I Look? Asia

17 August 2015 – It’s time to go head over heels for DIVA’s How Do I Look? Asia – the highly anticipated Asian re-imagination of the hit fashion makeover series. Billed as “Asia’s ultimate fashion fix,” How Do I Look? Asia will make its debut on Monday, 31 August at 8PM (SIN/MAL) on DIVA, NBCUniversal International Networks’ leading entertainment channel for women in Asia.

The NBCUniversal International format, produced by NBCUniversal’s Matchbox Asia, follows Malaysian celebrity and style icon Sazzy Falak as she guides eight fashion victims to the path of fashion enlightenment. Jeannie Mai, host of the original U.S. version, and a familiar face to Asian viewers, features in each episode, setting up the fashion challenges each week.

The fashion-challenged victims include onesie-addict/ blogger Apple Allison of Sole Searching Soul (Philippines); indie rock guitarist Ariana (Malaysia); mismatch, mishap/ watercolor artist Choc (Taiwan); sales executive, and literally “plain” Jane (Philippines/Australia); overachieving, yet outdated, Lavinya (Malaysia); rebel teacher Lianni (Philippines); romantically-insecure Maisarah (Singapore); and the uninspiringly-dressed motivational speaker Yessinta (Indonesia).

To achieve a professional look that can be replicated for the everyday, Sazzy will be joined by a guest stylist in each episode: Liz Uy (Filipina celebrity stylist); Zac Wu (Taiwanese celebrity stylist); Andrea Wong (former editor of Elle Malaysia); and Anindita Saryuf (fashion director of Elle Indonesia).

In each episode, Sazzy and an accomplice – a concerned family member, friend or colleague – will help transform the lucky fashion victim into a beacon of style. After having their wardrobe raided, the individual will have their current fashion choices face the “Eww Tube”, one of the iconic features of the original format. The “Eww Tube” is a vacuum cleaner-like machine that literally sucks offending outfits up and away after they have been eliminated by the panel of fashion experts and accomplices. The transformations featured on the series transcend fashion and style. Viewers will also get to witness the complex and emotional backstories of the victims, whose glamorous new looks, and freshly developed sense of style, act as a catalyst for them to adopt a more positive and confident outlook on life.

How Do I Look? Asia is a testament to DIVA’s position as the leading women’s entertainment channel in Asia. We are confident that this ground-breaking local production, like its original franchise, will strongly resonate with our core female audiences across the region,” said Christine Fellowes, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, NBCUniversal International Networks. “Using the insights from various in-depth research initiatives on Asian women that NBCUniversal has conducted and developed over the recent years, How Do I Look? Asia features many of the elements that we found women loved: fabulous and fun makeovers, the hottest fashion trends tailored to Asian sensibilities, inspiring and heart-warming personal stories, and a positive underlying message that encourages every woman to be her best self.”

Jeannie and Sazzy will be making live appearances as they tour Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam later this month on the following dates:
- Singapore: 20-22 August
- Kuala Lumpur: 23-25 August
- Ho Chi Minh City: 26-27 August  

How Do I Look? Asia Season One is presented by regional sponsor Zalora.
Tito Costa, Managing Director of ZALORA Group, said, “We’re excited to be working with How Do I Look? Asia’s very first season of fashion makeover series and we’re proud to contribute to the life-changing makeovers featured throughout the show. ZALORA supports Asia's diverse forms of beauty and seeks to empower women through fashion by giving them the confidence to own whatever moment they find themselves in and to encourage them to be the best version of themselves. The show’s goal is aligned with ZALORA’s commitment to provide a carefully-curated range of fashion options as the right tools to create confidence-boosting looks. This is perfectly echoed in the weekly fashion transformations featured throughout the show.”

In Malaysia, the series is also presented by Marigold Yogurt Drink and Panasonic Beauty.

Clozette is the Official Fashion Social Network of the series, which is filmed at an NBCUniversal International studio set built in Solaire Resort & Casino, Manila.
