With so much happening in Singapore and other parts of the world right now, it can be somewhat difficult to think of this world as anything but a miserable place.
However, every now and then, something magical like this happens that makes us realise that there is still hope and affection in humanity after all.
It’s not the biggest gesture in the world, but it is a heartwarming and beautiful moment that shows what a huge difference a small random act of kindness can make.
Editor’s note – Oops. Apologies for having mistaken the gender of the toddler previously. We have clarified that the adorable toddler is a girl, not a boy.
