I was offered the chance to follow Workers' Party (WP) candidate for East Coast GRC, National University of Singapore (NUS) Sociology Associate Professor Daniel Goh on a walkabout this morning.
The brief was to meet at Simei MRT. But that's so run-off-the-mill.
Why not start from his home, I asked, half expecting to be turned down. But to my surprise they agreed.
What I got was a glimpse into the life of a rather average Singaporean, a life not unlike yours or mine.
The first thing I see when I step out of the lift.
His son's toys and doodles decorate an otherwise typical living room.
A simple breakfast. Do you want milk with your coffee?
Popping vitamins and supplements for the long day ahead.
"Daddy's got to go now."
"Daddy don't go."
"See you tonight."

Better walk faster to catch the peak hour crowd.
