This is a card game played by Nyonya/Hokkien ladies only. Traditionally it is played by four people, each lady having the one opposite her as a partner. However it can also be played by three or two individual players. The dealer gets 15 cards and the rest 14. It is amazing how the ladies can hold all these cards in one hand, sweeping out the cards into a fan. The name of this card game is 'Chi Ki' and the rules are quite similar to mahjong.
My mother and aunts used to play Chi Ki but sad to say its popularity seems to be dying.
