use these to customize

      messages: {
            required: "This field is required.",
            remote: "Please fix this field.",
            email: "Please enter a valid email address.",
            url: "Please enter a valid URL.",
            date: "Please enter a valid date.",
            dateISO: "Please enter a valid date (ISO).",
            dateDE: "Bitte geben Sie ein gültiges Datum ein.",
            number: "Please enter a valid number.",
            numberDE: "Bitte geben Sie eine Nummer ein.",
            digits: "Please enter only digits",
            creditcard: "Please enter a valid credit card number.",
            equalTo: "Please enter the same value again.",
            accept: "Please enter a value with a valid extension.",
            maxlength: $.format("Please enter no more than {0} characters."),
            minlength: $.format("Please enter at least {0} characters."),
            rangelength: $.format("Please enter a value between {0} and {1} characters long."),
            range: $.format("Please enter a value between {0} and {1}."),
            max: $.format("Please enter a value less than or equal to {0}."),
            min: $.format("Please enter a value greater than or equal to {0}.")
      },
$(document).ready(function(){
	$('.validation-summary').hide();
    $("#myform").validate({
  rules: {
    email: {
      required: true,
      email: true,
      messages: {
      required: "HK: This field is required.",

Add messages also to your validate() call as below:
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$('.validation-summary').hide();
$("#myform").validate({
rules: {
email: {
  required: true,
  email: true
}
},
messages: {
	email: {
	  required: "This field is kind of required.",
	  email: "Invalid format. Should be xyz@abc.com"
	}
}
});
});
</script>

is there a way to trigger this div to show on validate.

<div class="validation-summary">
    <span class="icon-alert"></span><span class="headline">Whoops!</span>
    <p>Please revise the areas with red messages below to continue.</p>
</div>

Add an invalidHandler as:
<script>
  $(document).ready(function(){
	$('.validation-summary').hide();
    $("#myform").validate({
    invalidHandler: function(form, validator) {
      var errors = validator.numberOfInvalids();
	  alert(errors);
      if (errors) {
        $(".validation-summary").show();
      } else {
        $(".validation-summary").hide();
      }
    },
  rules: {
    email: {
      required: true,
      email: true
    }
  },
	messages: {
		email: {
		required: "This field is kind of required.",
		email: "Invalid format. Should be xyz@abc.com"
		}
	}
});

Change:

jQuery.validator.setDefaults({
      debug: true,
      success: "valid"
});

To:

jQuery.validator.setDefaults({
      debug: true,
      success: "valid",
      unhighlight: function(element, errorClass, validClass){
            $(element).removeClass(errorClass).addClass(validClass);
            $('.validation-summary').hide();
      }

});
