When we were back in Ipoh for Qing Ming two weekends ago, my mum unearthed some of the card games that my brothers and I used to play with, over 3 decades ago!
My mum's a real good keeper of our books, toys and clothes. Some of these cards games are not available for sale now and can only be purchased from a toy museum.
While Alycia and Sherilyn spent their afternoon at the Ipoh Swimming Club with their grand aunts and cousins, I stayed home with Cass and we played all the card and board games that I used to play with when I was her age -- Old Maid, Beggar My Neighbor, Happy Families, Snakes And Ladders, chess, Black Jack and Go Fish using a deck of Playing Cards. The weather in Ipoh was hotter than KL and we stayed indoor with the air-conditioner turned on all day, enjoying our good old board and card games :)
