~「TGIF!」Idol♥’s unzipped on way back Fridays (Volume 43)

Idols unzipped...

Uehara Takako on SmapxSmap Bistro (30)

For tonight’s Unzipped♥ we’ll go way back to I think the year was 1999? lol I haven’t even told you what it is we’re seeing and I’m asking for confirmation on its date =P. So tonight we’ll be reliving a great moment~* in SmapxSmap Bistro with the guest of honor being none other than the sweet~Okinawan~beauty Uehara Takako and this episode takes place right in middle of the height of SPEED as well as coinciding with the early beginnings of Takako~chan’s solo career as she was then teamed up with Luna Sea’s Kawamura Ryuichi who was producing and song writing for her back then…her second single plays in the background during this episode as well.

(Please note that the video clip above will improve at about the 5 1/2 minute mark as it does have some of that dreaded VHS fluttering going on there for a bit (。p_q)。And it is a bit fuzzy too in resolution as I taped this episode from a Japanese video rental shop here from years and years ago….so I deeply apologize for its fuzzyness xD)

The competing teams for this episode are Kimutaku & Tsuyoshi (red) vs. Shingo~kun & Goro (blue). Takako~chan orders the popular Korean dish bibinba and early on we learn through host Nakai~kun just how and why this dish is a big favorite with her. After a quick reminisce with Shingo with whom she’d acted in a drama with in the past Takako~chan dons the apron and goes into the Smap kitchen to prepare for the boys one of her very own favorites and it’s a pasta dish then quickly dubbed ‘Takakochan♥ pasta! Here Nakai~kun is so cute as he’s a bit bashful at the thought of using the same pasta fork which Shingo had just previously used (*´艸`)。One thing’s for sure as over the years I’ve learned that Japanese sure LOVE them some mayonnaise!!! I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m Japanese and I love it for tuna sandwiches but not for much else whereas I’ve seen it in so many foods there…(^q^)! And if you’ve been watching SmapxSmap Bistro for awhile then I’m sure you know that Kimutaku is the pasta~guy♥ of the group and he takes special care, detail and technique whenever a guest(s) order anything Italian with pasta! And furthermore with noodles being so much the heart and soul of so many Italian cuisine dishes and it being in itself so difficult to prepare just right with firmness being such a key aspect where you can easily over/under boil them…here after a heavy inspection and tasting, Kimutaku gives Takako~chan a congratulatory handshake for her Takako~chan pasta dish  Σ( ̄◇ ̄*)!!!Another cute moment occurs when Shingo~kun ‘forgets’ to finish one dash~line of the letter E as he’s written ‘LOVE’ upon Takako~chan’s dessert plate…aww so cute (´∀`)♥!

~~Warning! episode spoiler alert!~~

And if you don’t think that winning on Bistro means a lot and how particular special guests can up the ante so much and I don’t think it’s just for bragging rights, lol I’m sure you know what I mean with Uehara Takako on the show!! And of course the episodes conclude with the customary congratulatory~kiss♥!  Awww so sweet and didn’t Takako~chan appear to be a bit nervous just before she kissed Kimutaku…didn’t you think so? (*´∀`*) ♪~♪....!!

    Mesmerising food preparation here. Really good to watch. What’s the very dark topping we see at 5.25? And yes, she’s a neat eater! Enjoyed this a lot. Thank you for uploading. Now I’m hungry….

    • I love how Team Kimutaku & Tsuyoshi were sooooo overjoyed with the win \(^o^)/!!!! You can always tell when a particular favorite of the guys is on as the guest as their reactions to both winning and losing say so much in body language =D. Ohh wait you may be thinking of my comments on Miyazawa Rie’s pristine table manners? I’ve yet to transfer that episode from the fuzzy VHS copy I have but I’ve begun searching for it upon my bookshelves as my VHS are rather messily unorganized XD. Okay I’m rewatching the clip now…..oh she’s sprinkling shredded nori (seaweed) there. You can get them mixed in a variety of flavors in furikake or in sheets which are used in making sush to roll them in and often times shredded nori is also added to ramen…all yummy combinations =D.

        I should’ve guessed it was nori! I love dried seaweed and eat the sheets of it by itself for a snack. It’s like a healthy potato chip snack. Did you know Japanese food was recently added to the list of heritage foods (I think). It is extraordinary cooking, isn’t it, and so much healthier than a many other national foods. Uehara Takako still a neat eater, but now I’m looking forward to Miyazawa Rie. It’s okay to eat noodles noisily, though, isn’t it? Japanese table etiquette seems a complex business!

        • U~n nori is most yummy and so true that you can enjoy sheets just plain with no preparation or dish really….naturally so yummy! Have you had the teriyaki nori strips before? Really really good! Usually we’ll sprinkle nori on ramen, rice and tofu for starters but it can compliment so many dishes. Oh I did not know that, that’s really wonderful and so true about many dishes being so healthy for you too. U~n it’s as my father would say…..like a compliment to the cook as those sounds equal enjoyment and not all slurp-ers are created equal =P. Mmmm..most importantly never stick one’s chopsticks into any food in an upright position as it’s most disrespectful and well……is connected to death.

          Okay I’ve been putting together a new Fuzzy Memories post for Miyazawa Rie’s SMAP Bistro appearance today….hope ~* you enjoy it =D.
