Intern Jasmine’s Links Of The Daysian

We can agree that Lang Lang‘s last White House performance, which featured him playing “My Motherland” from the Korean film Battle On Shangganling Mountain, was beautiful. But was it political too? [WSJ]

Whatever, Average Asian Aging Process – we are no average Asians! DISGRASIAN ladies do not abide by your aging rules. [Buzzfeed]

See this walking poodle in a snowsuit. See how it WERKS. [BWE]

MTV Asia’s “Shibuhara Girls” aims to prove that vapidity is an international language we all can understand. [WSJ]

Jen Kwok’s “Tiger Mom” rap is hardcore enough for hip-hop – “Let me tell you about my battle hymn! Piano! Violin! Piano! Violin!” [a certain jen ne sais kwok]

A “Tiger Mom” in the US, but an “American Mom” in China – the Chinese-language version of Amy Chua‘s “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” is entitled “Being A Mom In America”. The cover features “a photo of a smiling Ms. Chua standing against a red, white and blue map of the United States.” [WSJ]

The art of noodle-making – Hung Ry in New York City’s NoLita neighborhood is fortunate to have Master Huacan Chen making hand-pulled noodles. [NYT]

Dear Mr. Riccardo Tisci, creative director, House of Givenchy: We here at DISGRASIAN headquarters LOVED your house’s spring/summer 2011 Haute Couture presentation. From the Japanese-inspired fashion to the gorgeous Asian models you cast, we cannot get enough. Can we have three of those oversize samurai helmets? We can pay you in love, kisses, and eternal gratitude. Love, Jen, Diana, and Intern Jasmine. [Huffington Post - thanks, Tamlyn!]

Dear Styleite: We know someone had to ask if the increased use and visibility of Asian models in the industry is just a trend. But quit harshing on our fashion-induced buzz! At least until our Givenchy samurai helmets arrive. Love, Jen, Diana, and Intern Jasmine. [Styleite]
