Over those two hours, I was allowed to be silly, to escape from the adult world and into the world of this toddler. Even though it was brief, it was very much needed. Kids aren't that scary, it turns out. You just need to be brave enough to think silly, to not make sense at all, and to have the courage to put a chocolate snowman on your porch in the middle of summer.
I was born in Kuching, a small city on the island of Borneo. I moved to the UK to study medicine and am now dangerously close to finishing it.
As I grew up, I realised that superheroes really did exist. They don't wear capes or spandex, though. You won't seeing them flying in the clouds, riding neon-coloured cars, or swinging across buildings. Some of them wear stethoscopes, some of them wear a uniform and some we will never know their names.

Getting them to talk about their problems is the first step to actually solving them. Who knows - maybe they've been waiting for the day for someone to genuinely want to know how they are doing. Even the most hardy of us long for human compassion once in awhile.
