Paper 'tikam' (gamble) game

A ‘tikam-tikam’ (gambling game) or ‘lucky draw’ board was often carried by ‘sarabat’ vendors (drink stalls run by Indians and Malays). They were targeted at children, who paid five cents per draw to pull off a tab of their choice. The tabs were randomly marked as 'winners'. The nature of the prize was arbitrarily decided by the vendor. They included soft drinks, a plastic toy, a packet of condiments or biscuits.
