Do You Remember "MPI"?

Ipoh has been granted city status for 24 years. The city council is called "Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh" and its abbreviation, MBI is very familiar among Ipoh citizens nowadays. But in those years between 1962 to 1988, when it was operating as a municipal council, people known it as "Majlis Perbandaran Ipoh" (MPI). Since the city status obtained almost a quarter century ago, we can hardly find documents or items with MPI at present day. But this sewage system cover caught my eyes while I was walking on the road nearby Silibin. For those infrastructures that existed since the municipal council time, it's marked with "MPI". Well, the elder generation would certainly remember this.
