Also known as a bantal busak, a chou chou, for those who do not know, is something personal which you carried and used from young to now, and probably for the rest of your life.
It could be a bolster, a tiny pillow, a soft toy or even a blanket but the point; it is something you will never want to part with for the rest of your life.
Your chou chou has been with you throughout your entire childhood to adolescence and even to adulthood. It has been with you through all your ups and downs. You slept with it every night; you use it as something to cry on whenever you are upset; You basically feel uncomfortable without it. So yeah, it is official. A chou chou is like a treasure to us.
We do not just want them; we need them. But some people, mostly parents, just do not understand why we are so dependent on our chou chou and thus, say or do heart-breaking things to them that we will definitely hate and get pissed off to no end. Here are 5 of them.
1) Wash our chou chou
One main reason why we love our chou chou so much is the smell. It is not just a smell, it is our own personal scent. It is the accumulation of our own sweat, tears and other personal smells from our own body that we build up over the years.
Simply put, the scent on our chou chou is like heaven to us because it is our personal smell that only we have! And is also why we don’t want to wash our chou chou.
We want that smell. We need that smell. We need to sniff it at least once a day (Admit it) Then you parents just have to go and wash it! What’s wrong with you? Do you have any idea how long it took for is to accumulate that heavenly smell?
And just like that, it’s gone. Do you know how many days we are going to take just to rebuild the smell? Plus, when you remove the smell, do you know how uncomfortable we feel?
Let me tell you this. There is nothing more horrifying than coming back home and seeing your chou chou being washed. Trust me, I have been there before. And I believe, like me, you all went on a rampage, screaming at whoever that did this horrifying act!
2) Say that our chou chou stinks and is dirty
F*** you! It is not smelly! As I said, it is a compilation of our own smell. Our heavenly smell! To you, it stinks, but to us, it smells like paradise. So, shut up about it being smelly. And how do you even know it is dirty? You can see the germs meh? Your eyes so power ah?
3) Bask our chou chou in the sun
I will bask you in the sun instead! Do you even have any idea how that will change the whole smell of our chou chou?
4) Ask if we can throw away our chou chou
The answer is always: NO! So, stop asking!
5) Literally throw away our chou chou without even asking
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you start a family war! Come on lah, you did not even bother to ask us! Do you know how precious chou chou is to us? By throwing our chou chou away, it is akin to DECLARING WAR ON US!! And believe this, WE WILL SHOW YOU NO MERCY!!
(P.S. If you think my tone is a bit too much here, I apologise. Because I know how it feels to have your chou chou thrown away or washed! I had this chou chou in the form of a bolster and I have been using it for 10+ years. Then one day, I went home and realised that my mother just threw the whole thing away! Man, I had never been so furious in my life! It’s like RAGE MODE ACTIVATED!)
