Before I forget about this, this is a continuation of the DIY project to repair the broken kitchen cabinet which initially started with the idea of just changing the rusted hinges but it went on into a proper makeover of the whole kitchen cabinet as the tabletop was still in good condition.
When there is a fault in the electrical systems in the house, it pays greatly to have some background knowledge on using the right tools and what the different colours of the electrical cables mean. Thankfully the electrical semantics at home is not so completed when it comes to changing the bulb or adding electrical appliances to an existing setup. Image source: Flickr.

In the last 2 years, a number of my colleagues, friends and relatives had bought new houses and immediately set on renovation and interior decoration. However with the global pandemic where the future is uncertain, it pertinent for all to revisit on the idea of prepping the house so that you can depend less on others for simple fixes and works.
(The year 2020 was ripe for a water heater replacement project and you need to have one of these items on standby – a proper toolbox set with the basic items like screwdrivers, hammer, pliers, etc, extendable ladder, water leakage tools, spare bulbs & cables and of course a drill.

One of the promises that I made to my wife beginning this year was to finally replace the old, broken water heater in our master bathroom. Actually it is an old promise dating many years ago as the old water heater needed to be replaced years ago but every time I wanted to replace it, I would have forgotten about it or some overseas assignment would come and I would get busy with that. That will be the case until the next year comes and my wife would be reminding me again.
