I really enjoy taking long baths at night, especially after a long day as a way to unwind. Whenever Em tells me he wants to play PS4 or he needs to study, I’ll be soaking in my bathtub, having my me time.
Sometimes I do this in the middle of the day too, but they’re not quite as enjoyable because the kids, especially Kanye, would be meowing at the bathroom door, begging to be let in. Unless if I tip toe to the bathroom sneakily when they’re asleep, but usually they’d notice after 10 minutes . It’s easier when Em’s home, he’ll ask them to leave me alone and he’ll cater to them. So sweet of him .
I mentioned about my obsession with Treacle Moon bath gel before and I’ve been using it a lot to soak in until it ran out. So I bought a new one, or should I say, two new ones, hihi.
I bought Iced Strawberry Dream again and this time, along with That Vanilla Moment, which was chosen by Em. He likes the smell so much he rasmikan the vanilla bath when I was out hanging with my girls.
Happened during this one time when I accidentally left the tap water running for too long, lol. But who would say not to extra foam anyway, am I right ? Hehe..
Last year when Em went back to Malaysia alone, he bought me these bath bombs at Sephora. I was thrilled but at the same time so sayang nak guna, I’ve only used two so far. I like it a lot when they fizzle and they smell really nice, but they’re not foamy so that was a let down. Or bath bombs aren’t supposed to be foamy?
This year I’ve been soaking a whole lot more, appreciating my bathtub whilst I still can haha. Also because the temperature has dropped lower and taking a warm bath is always comforting. I’ve been having sore muscles lately, and even though the warm bath helps, it doesn’t last.

Growing up, my mom constantly told me to soak my feet in salt water whenever my feet felt sore, or when I was having flu, fever, basically whenever I felt sick. There was this special salt that she used, I can’t remember what it was, but considering how famous Himalayan Salt was (and still is) in Malaysia, I’m going to assume that was it.
I am a sceptical person, but amazingly, it really worked; if not all the time, most of the time.
“When you sit in a salt bath, the Himalayan salt detoxes your body and energy field, releasing toxins and negative energy into the bath water. At the same time, the beneficial minerals of the salt are absorbed through the skin. The salt contains over 84 minerals and elements.” – Energy Muse
The only problem is, I didn’t have any Himalayan Salt in hand. So I had to use the next best thing from my kitchen – the Solar Salt, better known as the Sea Salt. LOL. It’s fine, my mom used to use regular cooking salt whenever she’s out of the Himalayan Salt too, so I suppose it’s all good. I Googled the benefits of Sea Salt Bath and many swear by it, so I had nothing to lose. Although, they did use some special Sea Salt made for bathing .
I soaked for an hour or maybe more, until Em was worried he came to check on me lol. This was how I felt afterwards:
I felt really good afterwards! Since I’m not sure as whether they sell Himalayan Salt here, I’m going to look for Korean Bamboo Salt. Didn’t know the existence of it until my FIL asked us to check it for him. Or maybe I should look for Himalayan Salt lamp online seeing that they come in various colours and shapes in today’s modern day.
Ehh wait, wasn’t I talking about bathing?
Looking forward to more salt bathing in the future, goodbye for now bubbles!
