'Is home the kampong or the new nation?'—a question that intrigued both Haresh and myself, especially at a time when the worldwide rise of new nationalism acts as a resistance against the relentless emergence of an even more increasing borderless world. With new citizens at our doorstep, and living in a tiny island being constantly connected to the world, we are perpetually interacting with 'others' both in our daily realities and virtually.

Balek Kampong features two narratives/realities—a device to explore the complexities of home in a more wholistic way.
