On February 6th, I decided to go to a Japanese Café called Genki Living. I woke up late and did not feel like eating a lot, so I got ready to go to Genki living. The Café is about 8 minutes away from my house. It was kind of cold when I came out from my house, so I went back home and grabbed my purple jacket. It was around 7:30 at night when I came out from house and got into my car. As I turned my car on, I heard a song called ‘Take a bow’ by Rihanna.

I sat down on a tree and started writing down the notes about the environment.
The entrance side of the wall is all glass, so people can see the inside of the café. The sides of the walls are covered with a wall sticker that shows a picture of a Japanese street. There are benches in the café and 5 little desks as furniture items. As a decoration, there is a red London style telephone booth placed in front of the cashier’s desk, one large round bench is surrounding a tree that has Christmas lights dangling and small Japanese light shades are also decorating the tree.

I had a mission of talking to two strangers. I decided to talk to the boss of the place. I have been to this place many times but I never had a chance to talk to the boss of the café. He is in his mid thirties and he is half Taiwanese and half Japanese. He was wearing a cap hat with Genki logo on, a lime green polo shirt and light brownish beige color pants on. He had a brown pair of converse on and had navy color apron with Genki living café on the front pocket of it. We had a conversation about all kinds of desserts. I asked him how he started the business, he told me that originally his sister owned the place and he took over it because his sister started another business in Rowland Heights area. He asked me what...
