Anyone who's held on to their chou chou / bantal busuk for years knows there's nothing more comforting than taking a big whiff of that heavenly smell after a long day

Whether it's a pillow from your days as a baby or a super penyet "bo bo" (bolster), our precious chou chous have been with us through thick and thin, "marinated" with a scent that's uniquely yours and yours only.

Now I don't know about you, but I'm sure all bantal busuk owners can agree that changing the cover or - God forbid - washing it is pretty much a crime.

Which is why we're relating so hard to this two-year-old who looked like his entire world had been snatched away after his mum put his precious pillow into the washing machine

The video may have gone viral in September last year, but its impact is forever. 

Not gonna lie, I still panic whenever my mum threatens to wash my bolster so I totally feel your pain, little guy. :(
