Needless to say, I sought the company of my 2 sisters or my brother when it was time to go to bed. When this was no longer possible, I found that I had to play very loud music. My favourite was Shirley Bassey. She has such a loud and powerful voice. All I had to do was put the tape on and I felt that I was safe because, in my childish mind, I thought it would deter unwelcome "visitors" or at least trick "them" into thinking I wasn't alone.
Talking about Shirley Bassey during my lunch time yesterday, made me remember this. I remember that fear and how I dealt with it, quite successfully, I might add.
Now, if only my fear for Malaysia, becoming so not what I think she should be, could be so easily resolved.
