How do you pronounce Plakat?

How do you pronounce Plakat? Is it (Play-Kat) or (Pla-Kat)? I need to know since alot of my girls are PKs. Infact, one is a PKCT.

Plak-it is the other way I've heard show breeders say it. The most common ways are "pla-cot" and "plak-it". Really not sure what the correct pronunciation is. Anyone speak Thai?
