Next up.Ho ,Ho,Horlicks! Brief history is as follows.Horlicks is the name of a company and of a malted milk hot drink, which is claimed to promote sleep when consumed at bedtime. There is, however, no evidence that malted milk directly promotes sleep; it may merely stave off hunger pangs that could disturb sleep.( set up in1873) It is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline in the United Kingdom, South Africa, New Zealand, India, Pakistan and Jamaica, and under licence in the Philippines and Malaysia. A couple of  Horlicks collectible items for sale below.
On the left is a coin box which came with the shortlived chocolate version of Horlicks or known as Chocolate Horlicks.Beside the coinbox as seen in the picture is a unused old stock glass with chinese characters at the back of it.

Finally i am putting up a Salem clock for sale.Its running and keeps good time.Would make a handsome piece for those into  the"kopitiam" concept.Salem is brand of cigarettes introduced in 1956 by the RJR as the first filter-tipped menthol cigarette. Its name (along with that of the Winston brand) derives from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the city where RJR was founded and headquartered. Salem cigarettes are unique in that they are blended with Asian Menthol rather than the traditional mainstream Menthol.Lets look at the clock then.
Thats about it for today folks.Hope everyone had a swinging merdeka holiday today.Till then keep happy and do take care.

Pre Merdeka sales !- F n N merdeka Glass

Greetings and salutations.In a few more days we will celebrate the 53rd anniversary of MERDEKA(independence day).To be precise it is on the 31st of August.Lets read a brief history of this defining moment which took place back in 1957. Merdeka is a word in the Indonesian and Malay language meaning independence or freedom. It is derived from a Sanskrit Maharddhika meaning "rich, prosperous and powerful". In the Malay archipelago, this term had acquired the meaning of a freed slave. The term Mardijker is a Dutch corruption of the Portuguese version of the original Sanskrit words and used to designate former Portuguese and Dutch slaves from India in the East Indies, whence the Malay meaning of "free(dom)" is derived. The term was significant during the anticolonialist and pro-independence movements of the colonies of Indonesia, Malaya, and Singapore, in the history of Indonesia, history of Malaysia, and in the history of Singapore. It became a battle-cry for those demanding independence from the colonial administrations of the Netherlands and United Kingdom.
The effort for independence was spearheaded by Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, who led a delegation of ministers and political leaders of Malaya in negotiations with the British in London for Merdeka, or independence along with the first president of the Malayan Chinese Association (MCA) Tun Dato Sir Tan Cheng Lock and fifth President of Malaysian Indian Congress Tun V.T. Sambanthan. Once it became increasingly clear that the Communist threat posed during the Malayan Emergency was petering out, agreement was reached on February 8, 1956, for Malaya to gain independence from the British Empire. However, for a number of logistical and administrative reasons, it was decided that the official proclamation of independence would only be made the next year, on August 31, 1957, at Stadium Merdeka (Independence Stadium), in Kuala Lumpur.

    SOLD !

   Up for sale is a merdeka collectible item first issued by the Aerated Water giants Fraser and Neave to commemorate the Merdeka Day celebrations in 1957.The glass  is in a very good condition and would certainly be an eyecatching item on display with the rest of the collectibles you have in your showcase.
Please sms/call 017-5232979 for futher info/price.Till then take care and happy collecting.To those who are planning for the customary weekend flea market walkabout cum "hunting".Good Luck.!

Capstan is a brand of unfiltered British cigarettes made by Imperial Tobacco originally launched by W. D. & H. O. Wills in 1894. The brand became less popular when the health effects of Tobacco became more widely known, few shops now sell them.
In 1971 the UK government published a table of the tar and nicotine contents of cigarettes available in the UK market, and Capstan Full Strength contained, by some margin, the highest tar and nicotine contents of any brand.

Sinalco story

Salam and greetings alike.Hari ni ayer lamned special ,SINALCO, jenama lamned tertua di eropah.Sejarah/History is as follows:

Sinalco is a brand of non-alcoholic drinks founded in 1902, with sales in more than 40 countries
In 1902, German scientist Friedrich Eduard Bilz invented "Bilz Brause", a sherbet powder, and started to sell it in partnership with industrialist Franz Hartmann. As imitations started to appear, they held a prize competition for a brand name, and chose "Sinalco" (an abbreviation of the Latin sine alcohole, "without alcohol"). As one of the first beverage brands, Sinalco came to be exported worldwide, particularly to South America and the Middle East. The red circle trademark was registered in 1937. A distinctively-shaped bottle was launched in the 1950s, and updated at the end of the century.[1] Sinalco is the oldest soft drink brand in Europe
