I had the chance to bring my three-year-old son on a daddy-son date to Serangoon Gardens. It was a simple trip and the goal was just to eat at the hawker centre, take a short walk around and return home. Initially, I thought he would be bored as we were not heading to an exciting destination. However, my son still recalls it fondly today. Why was my son as excited about this trip as the times we splurged on more expensive outings?
