Life was so much different then

The following material was found in the library of Ohio University. It is a programme booklet of KGMMB's (Kesatuan Guru-Guru Melayu Malaysia Barat) AGM 1968 and the advertisement showing a Malay couple enjoying a glass of Guinness Stout appeared on page 2, side by side with the message from the then Deputy Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak.

The plaque below is from my church, St Francis of Assisi, located at 8th mile Cheras which was officially declared opened on May 1 1979 by YB Dato Seri Syed Ahmad Shahabudin, who was then the DEPUTY HOME MINISTER. I do not see any UMNO ministers, even low ranking ones, performing such ceremonies at churches these days.
