Now I Remember

.. why I HAVE to use blankets at night!

I’ve always been the kind of person whom, no matter how hot the night is, I still need my blanket. I don’t used quilts (gila paa pakai quilt kat Malayia ni?!?) though. I use reliable thick normal blankets coz I know I still use it no matter how the night temperature is.

This sometimes is kinda a hassle when I go stay at someone else’s house and they don’t provide any blankets. Nak mintak tu macam malu la kan, so I usually keep quiet and because of that, I also have an extra pair of socks in my car, just in case..

It has been a habit since I was a kid and I couldn’t remember what prompt me to stick to this until yesterday.

I was a bit tired and exhausted last night so I decided to sleep early. Well, not THAT early la but earlier than usual. I was tired enough that I think I must’ve dozed off once I lay in bed as when I woke up this morning (without my usual habit of waking up every now and then throughout the night), I realized my blanket was still neatly folded at the end of my bed. This surprised me as I usually make sure I’ve laid out my blanket before I switch of the lights but I guess there’s a first time for everything.

Anyways, things were ok the whole morning and I forgot about my tidoq-tak-ingat-donia. Then, as 2pm rolled by, I found myself locking the door to the house to go to my usual class in Parit Buntar.

As I lifted my foot to secure the straps on my trustworthy ‘teaching sandal’, I felt the pull of the muscle in my calf..

..macam nak nangis kot! Huwaaaa..

I don’t even remember the last time I had a leg cramp but I remembered then WHY I could NEVER sleep without a blanket. I ALWAYS get leg cramps when I don’t.. and it hurt!

Only this time, I got it, what, 7 hours after waking up?!? Usually they’d happen just as I was waking up.. sangat ‘perfect’ timing as I had to drive to my class and I was clutching my calf hoping to ease the pain.

Went to class with a subtle ‘limp’ as the aftermath of a cramp (as anyone can tell you) was still there. Luckily it was my left leg, not my right-and-driving leg.. sheesh!


Note to self: Pakai selimut!!

Pakai blanket ketika tidur tu buatkan cik Ayu lebih rasa protected dan comfortable disebab dah terbiasa sejak kecil. Situasi itu buatkan cik Ayu masih merasai perasaan yg dirasai ketika sejak kecil dulu. Sama juga seperti orang yg ada bantal busuk, mereka lebih selesa bila tidur dgn batal busuk. Bila sesuatu situasi berulang berlaku, otak akan recall memory tntg mood dan situasi yg telah berlaku pada sebelum2 ini.
