Cherki cards

Cherki cards, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
When I showed mum my pictures of the Melaka road trip she saw this and squealed "Cheekey" . Apparently its a card game she played as a child. And I've googled the spelling it's spelt Cherki and it's a peranakan game with loads of baba malay and hokkien words used. Now if I can persuade her to remember maybe we can get more stories:)
