‘I’d Like to Become a Junkie for One Week or Two Weeks’ is a short extract from a video portrait of an eccentric and lovable couple from Malaysia and Singapore, who came to the UK in the 60s. They left behind extensive families, came to Britain and stayed. Creating a home from home, they surrounded themselves with an eclectic blend of East and West: English wooden furniture, rugs from the Middle East, and Asian cooking utensils; draperies of batik next to velvet curtains; English spoken with Singaporean slang; shepherd’s pie with rice and Chinese tea.
