Comic artist Laura Park was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. After having surgery in June, she drew this panel to commemorate opening the $67,373.81 bill she received in July. [boingboing]

DISGRASIAN™ co-founder and editor Jen moderated the fashion blogging panel at V3Con last week. Panelist Tommy Lei of MY BELONGING blog recapped the session. [MYBELONGING]

Software engineer and long time Google employee Chade-Meng Tan talked to The Economist about Search Inside Yourself, a meditation program he has been running at the company since 2007. [The Economist]

First Lady Michelle Obama visited with Sikh American families affected by the tragic shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin on August 24. In addition to offering her condolences, the First Lady “underscored how strong those who died were, and how strong the Sikh community continues to be.” [WhiteHouse.gov]

The man known as Kenji Fujimoto, who wrote a tell-all about the lavish lifestyle enjoyed by the late Kim Jong-il, was surprised to be welcomed back so warmly by Kim Jong-un on a recent trip to North Korea. [New York Times]

While Psy’s “Gangnam Style” continues to amaze and delight here in the US, people back in Korea are confused by its success. [WSJ]

Congratulations are in order for Lydia Ko, who became the youngest winner in LPGA tour history last weekend. [Yahoo! Sports]

If you want to be down with Asian American culture, you need to be in the San Gabriel Valley in Southern California. It’s an exciting time for those Chinese-Americans who are coming of age in ‘the 626.’ [Los Angeles Times]

Tiaras! Infected makeup! An amorous emcee! The Miss Hong Kong 2012 pageant had all this and much, much more. [BuzzFeed Shift]

If you cannot wait until the September 25 of Mindy Kaling’s new comedy “The Mindy Project,” the pilot is available to watch (for free!) on Hulu. [Hulu]

With more South Asian performers playing popular and beloved roles on shows such as “The Good Wife,” “House,” and “Parks and Recreation,” are South Asians the new model minority of American television? [Pacific Standard]

An eagerly anticipated show for this fall is CBS’s “Elementary,” which will feature my girl from Queens Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson, a female incarnation of Sherlock Holmes’s sidekick. Liu talked to the Wall Street Journal about taking up this historic role. [WSJ]

The Atlantic would like you to meet Han Han, who might be the most famous Chinese blogger (and racecar driver!) that you’ve never heard of. [The Atlantic]

18 Again is India’s first vaginal tightening cream, and is getting a mixed reception, apparently. Did these folks not see the ad for it? It’s so exciting! [The Cut]

A gentleman in India named his store in “Hitler.” To the surprise of exactly nobody, lots of people are not happy about this. [8Asians]

Now’s probably not a good time to point out that India’s economy seems to be slowing down, huh? [Marketplace]

Chinese dissident Wang Xiaoning was arrested and convicted of “subversion”  back in 2002 largely based on evidence provided to the Chinese government from Yahoo!. Mr. Wang has just been freed from prison, while another dissident, also convicted with evidence provided from Yahoo!, Shi Tao, remains imprisoned. I bet Google wouldn’t pull that bs. [Betabeat]

This is awful – a Chinese toddler refuses to give up the mic during a family karaoke outing, starting a fight that ends with two men dead. [The Telegraph]

An autopsy performed on the body of Junior Seau, who died on May 2 of this year, showed no signs of brain damage. [CNN]

Dear Noel Duan – You wrote about how you consider yourself  “fat for an Asian” for xojane. Have you checked out  Thick Dumpling Skin, a online community for Asian Americans to discuss food and body image issues? I think you should. Your friend, Intern Jasmine [xojane]
