Barrett at Sasana Kijang on the topic of "East Meets West: Western Banking Come to the Archipelago", organized by the MUZIUM, GALERI SENI DAN PERKHIDMATAN KMC (Centralised Shared Services (CSS))of Bank Negara Malaysia | (Central Bank of Malaysia).
Mr.William L.C. Barrett
 In the talk show, Mr. William Barrett showed us a lot of his Bank Draft collections issued by the Western and Eastern Banks and how there were influenced the banking system of Nusantara.
 Mr. Lucien de Guise, The Director Of MAG and Knowledge Management Centre of BNM
After the talk show, I took the opportunity to ask him to autograph my copy of "Brunei and Nusantara History In Coinage" that was edited by him. He was very happy to sign my book although it is a photo copy. I told him I got difficulty to get the original copy of his "Brunei and Nusantara History In Coinage" for my reference, it is only available in the Brunei Museum. He told me, Mr. Lucien de Guise, The Director Of MAG and Knowledge Management Centre of BNM also facing the similar problem. Mr. Lucien agreed and said it took him sending more than 20 massages to the management of Brunei Museum, only they responded to his request.
Later, Mr. & Mrs Barrett, Mr. Cho Chun Loong (MNS), Cik Idarani Ibrahim of MUZIUM, GALERI SENI DAN PERKHIDMATAN KMC of Bank Negara Malaysia and myself went to the exhibition hall of "Knowing Nusantara: Money That Made The Region" on the second level to pay a second visit to the exhibition in order to catch a better view on every item that was on display. Mr. William gave us a very details explanation on most of his collections that were displayed in the exhibition.
