Walk-in Tubs: A Smart Solution


In the old days, bathtubs came in one basic style, and they didn’t work very well for anyone with disabilities, knee problems, or even balance issues. Then easy access tubs made their way into the home renovation scene, and lives were transformed. Whether you’re aging in place or you’re just afraid of slipping and falling when exiting the tub, this design is a smart solution for you. Here are just a few of the benefits of easy entry bathtubs that you may not be aware of.

Improved Circulation
If someone you love has a disability that reduces their range of motion, then the tub can help improve their blood circulation. Immersion in warm water can open capillaries to bring in more oxygen and increase blood flow.

Better Sleep
People who are struggling to sleep often find that a warm bath can help soothe their rattled nerves so they can sleep better. If you find that it’s difficult to lower yourself into a traditional tub, then you’ve been missing out on this option, but that can change with the right appliance. Choose a tub that you can easily enter and exit on your own so that you can take a soothing bath when you want one.

Greater Independence
There’s no need to move into an assisted living facility just because you’re getting older or living with a handicap. With the right upgrades, you can remain in your own home and handle most of your daily care needs. If you’re focused on aging in place, then an easy access bathtub should be at the top of your list. You can use it on your own, or visiting home health aides can easily assist you with a bath.

Cost Effectiveness
When compared to the high cost of assisted living centers and nursing homes, walk-in bathtubs are the most cost-effective choice. They allow you to continue handling your own personal hygiene needs for a longer periods, and you’ll enjoy several great benefits now and in the coming years.

Before you decide to move out of your home, see how the right upgrades can allow you to age in place. Whether you’re disabled and want to enjoy the benefits of a warm bath or you’re just unable to stand for long periods of time in a shower anymore, this type of tub could be the answer you’ve been searching for.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose?

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
