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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
