Selena Li Shares Her Secret to Happiness
Since joining the entertainment industry in 2003 after participating in the Miss Hong Kong pageant, Selena Li’s (李詩韻) journey was not always a happy one. Her past relationships did not come to fruition. However, it looks like things are looking up for the 32-year-old who has since learnt the key to happiness.
Beauty Shines from a Healthy Body
Even with just minimal makeup, Selena’s skin glows with radiance. Believing that beauty and health are inseparable, Selena feels that the much-coveted inner glow can only be obtained through a healthy lifestyle rather than skincare and facials. She shared that she often researches beauty tips online. “Every day if you consume unhealthy food, not only will it affect your health, it will also show on your skin. So every morning, I will drink a glass of blended juice that is made up of celery, cucumber, bitter melon and green apples. It helps to clear my digestive system and clear my body of toxins.” Selena also tries to avoid red meat as well as coffee, eating more vegetables and fruits. Selena also thinks that exercise is not only good for the body, it is also good for one’s mentality.
While she has a morning routine to keep her skin in tip-top condition, she also has a nightly ritual to keep her inner peace. Every night, Selena will write down at least ten things that have made her happy for the day in a journal. No matter how small each item is, the point is for Selena to look back at her day positively. “Every time after I finish [the list], I will feel more relaxed. I understand that every situation has a good and bad side to it, and it is not necessary to always think of the bad.”
Playing Two Different Characters
Selena is currently filming Cold Mountain, Hidden Dragon <寒山潛龍> with Kenneth Ma (馬國明). In the period drama, she will play two different roles. In one role, she will play Tou Fa, a lively and courageous village girl from an ethnic minority group, who loves her husband (Kenneth Ma) deeply. Her other role is the polar opposite. Bo Mei Leong is a well-known courtesan who is well versed in music and calligraphy. Extremely beautiful, the emperor was also captivated by her beauty. Although playing two different roles proves to be a challenge, the well-written scripts and characters made it enjoyable for Selena, who could not wait for the release of the drama.
