Hint for 2. This man was elected in 1948 - first ever elections for Singaporeans.
You can give anyone of the 5 elected but generally accepted as a Eurasian man (not David Marshall)

Hajjah Fatima Mosque is now the oldest mosque still in use. But Masjid Kg Melaka near Keng Cheow is older and a preserved site
