On this visit Prof. Salleh managed to show a building where a Malay poetry was painted on the wall. The owner of the house, Karin, was a quarter-Malay.
On a previous visit in April 2005, Prof. Salleh organised a guided tour of the library at the University of Leiden where a large collection of Malay manuscripts were kept. KITLV and the University of Leiden collectively has the largest collection of Malay manuscripts in the world. Many of the manuscripts have not been studied yet.
