    It's wrong typing. No reason. But, I could understand why it happened. The writer perhaps thought that "cekcok" was a kind of "kata ulang" from root "cek". Because, some words change the sound in "kata ulang", like:
    - Bolak-balik: 1) to and from, back and forth; 2) frequently, again and again; contradictory.
    - Montang-manting: moving about restlessly.
    - Mundar-mandir: to move back and forth, especially aimlessly.:)

    Thanks for your reply. :)

    I have learnt a new phrase "kata ulang" as well. :D
