Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2011!

Now for the above greeting in German... Frohe Weihnachten und ein glückliches Neues
Jahr 2011!

It's just a simple but very meaningful greeting to all our visitors and supporters of Alvin's Bunker and reenacting history in Singapore. Let's not forget what the men, women and children went through many decades ago to ensure a peaceful world as we know today.

By the way, I thought this snack I found in Candy Empire would suit the occasion just right.

It's from Scho-ka-kola (YES! THE SAME WW2 GERMAN MANUFACTURER) and these snacks are available in two flavours, Exotic Mix and Studentenfutter! Inside are smaller pieces of the original WW2 type chocolate. If you must taste German WW2 rations, start from here! I think it's about S$5.00.

It's still available in today's shops as a modern snack.
Candy Empire has it sometimes too but you must have an eagle eye to spot it.
