A new country - the 14 Federated States of Malaysia - uses visual devices
and taped commentaries on pickup phones to acquaint visitors with its people,
government, industry and arts. In the center of the two-story pavilion, orchids
and ferns surrounded a small lily pond. An exhibit of the Malaysian way of life
includes a color
diorama of a village. Elsewhere on the ground floor are scale models of a tin
mine and the Parliament House in Kuala Lumpur. The country's industry and
commerce are shown on the second floor - including an exhibit on one of its
chief products, rubber. Films are shown continuously in a small theater.
A collection of art works are displayed in the pavilion's restaurant, where
waiters offer assorted curries from wagons, and visitors may order such
dishes as satay - marinated beef cubes broiled and dipped in spicy peanut sauce.
