Interesting word found on the glass fence of a Chinatown cafe. I was intrigued as I always thought that the word "chook" means "chicken". After having got back into the office, I did some Google research, and found that the cafe was advertising a wine, eg Black Chook or Silver Chook shiraz wines from McLaren Vale in South Australia.
I have tender memories of my husband often calling me "chookie", but latterly in our middle years, this usage seems to have subsided, but instead become reserved for our cats :-)
