Well, now I’m going to write a blog post about how to be single because I’ve been traveling solo after a major breakup! The reality of a solo life: For a lot of people, being single is painful – loneliness, disappointment, peer pressure, etc. However, a solo life doesn’t have to be hard. In fact, I find my solo life really cool – I don’t have to put up with anyone that I can’t stand; I have many [...]

Traveling alone: solo vacations are therapeutic


I used to like the intensity of relationships, but now I’m alone (not lonely). As I get older, I started to enjoy the stability, balance and grounding in my life. That’s why I’ve been traveling alone. Don’t let crazy relationships dominate your mind. Your primary thoughts become your reality. When I was much younger, I was surrounded by people who were crazy about relationships. At that time, being single was not acceptable in my social circle. Consequently, I thought I must be in a relationship – I just wanted to fit in! 🔥 After being in a few crazy relationships, I realized [...]

How to be a sustainable brand in hospitality and tourism industries


Sustainability is a frequent topic of discussion in this day and age. This isn’t just about protecting the ecosystem and the environment. It’s also about other aspects, including industries such as hospitality and tourism. A case study: Although there is definitely a threat of new entrants and the competitive rivalry is pretty strong, The Hibiscus Tree does not face the threat of substitutes and the bargaining power of its customers & suppliers are relatively low. In spite of the political instability, the current exchange rate and the low population growth rate in South Australia, modern technological shifts have supported the business [...]

Insights into future business development in tourism and hospitality


An in-depth SWOT analysis will provide more insights into the future business development of The Hibiscus Tree, a thriving business in the tourism and hospitality industry in spite of the pandemic. Strengths and weaknesses: First and foremost, the organization’s internal strengths include the convenient access to authentic key ingredients such as Sichuan chilies and effective marketing approaches on the Internet. Because most restaurants in this category do not have access to authentic key ingredients such as chilies from Sichuan Province, China, they are unable to offer truly authentic Sichuan cuisine in Adelaide. Loyal and seasoned customers know exactly what they want, [...]

Journey to East Asia: What an iconic brand can do to have a better impact


After a journey to East Asia, I have a much better understanding of the iconic Japanese brand Muji. Recommendations for future strategy: As there are many areas that need to be improved, Muji would be well-advised to consider the following strategies carefully. The first strategy to consider is to shift production from Japan and China to other Asian countries such as India, the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia where salaries are significantly lower (Lung 2020). This strategy is recommended because Muji has to learn from their own mistakes. Clearly, this is the learning / ‘emergent’ approach which comes from trial and error. [...]

How culture and cuisine shape the landscape


I worked for a small restaurant for a few months in order to gain some work experience before graduation. I have realized that culture and cuisine can really shape the vision of my career in the future. Internal organization analysis: From the organizational diagnosis, it can be seen that I am able to learn much more while working for a small organization because I am encouraged to participate in almost every area of the business. Because The Hibiscus Tree is a small restaurant in Adelaide City, I have been involved in many aspects of this business: I have worked as a [...]
