Tenugui mumbling Vol. 95 – Tenugui Magic Vol.05 How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Tenugui Magic Vol.05 – How to use TENUGUI by Sommelier Style from Ruri Kippenbrock (wuhaonyc) on Vimeo.

I visited Yasu-san at 15 EAST (15 E. 15th street, NYC) Japanese Restaurant the other day. Yasu-san always supports me and Tenugui since I started my own company in 2007.

After his long career in his food service business in New York, he went to Los Angeles and expolered new location?a few years. And now he came back to New York, and challenging his new carrea in 15 EAST. His excellent service is always touched my heart very deeply. I’ll definately go anyplace he’ll be for my very special day!

He shows me “How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style” on this movie. Tenugui is a perfect cloth to dry and shine luxury glassware. Yasu-san said; Tenugui is a very simple and great cloth to wipe a glass, because you don’t need to wipe it twice. Tenugui absorbs all moisture, and fine fibers don’t stick on the glass. Usually, he have to use two different kitchen cloths to wipe a glass, one for dry and one for shine, but not with Tenugui!

Thank you Yasu-san for sharing this great technique with us, and thank you very much for your support of Tenugui and me always!!!!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.85 – Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Festival) “a Hint of Spring”

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

?

My Hina-Ningyo.. 45-years old!

March 3rd is Hina-matsuri (Doll’s festival) in Japan. This is the day to celebrate young girls growing up and being happy. There is also Tango-no-sekku, or Kodomo-no-hi (Children’s day) in May to celebrate boys.

The photo of Hina-ningyo (Dolls) was made by my Aunt Yachiyo when I was born. They have been traveling many cities and many countries with me. I guess they would be eligible for tons of mileage.
Originally from Osaka Japan,? we moved to Yokohama first… and then to?Beijing, Dalian, and Shanghai, China… and then on the boat to Texas… and on the road to New York. Hope they like New York as much as I do now!

Life is very interesting, you never know what will come to you next. Sometimes people are afraid to change,?their location, school, work, partner, and life in general. Whatever it is, open your heart, open your eyes, and listen to your inner whispering… it will bring new possibilities to your life.

Kimono de Jazz at the Kitano

Kimono de Jazz at the Kitano

?We had an event “Kimono de Jazz” at the Kitano?last month. I used my yellow komon Tenugui as a kimono collar, and combined it with the cherry petal Kimono that came from my mother. She said that she wore it for her college ceremony… over fifty years ago!!!! The elegance of Japan has carried over to the next generation… and with our own style!
I love both tradition and change! How about you, Tenugui fans?

Sending you a hint of Spring along with Hina-ningyo and Three Kimono beauties!!!
