Does this sum up what happened in this reserved “election”?
Boy: Papa you always choose the place that you like but I don’t like! It’s not fair!
Dad stops packing his fishing equipment in his bag and turns to his son
Dad: Okay. This time I let you choose. I give you a few places then you decide ok?
Boy’s face lights up in excitement
Boy: Okay! Papa you are the best!
Dad: So today we can go to the playground downstairs, go to USS or we can go fishing at East Coast Park.
Boy: USS! I want to go to USS!
Dad: Son, USS very far leh we live at Jurong if we go there come back already 2 hour plus. Mai lah.
Boy: Okay… then like that we just go down to the playground loh…
Dad: Good! Let’s go.
Dad picks up his bag and heads out the door
Dad: Ehh son, actually ah, playground you can anytime go because it’s so near our house. I think today we go fishing better lah.
