I had a lot of fun with my eight-year-old daughter recently with AR Makr, a user-friendly, feature-packed app that lets you create your own augmented-reality masterpieces.

You can start with your own drawing – we use the iPad’s Keynote app – take a photo or download a picture, and turn that from a 2D to a 3D virtual object.

Through the iPad’s camera, you see this creation “come to life” in the real world, using your home as a backdrop.

You can also check out other child-friendly and educational activities on Apple’s Learning From Home website.

Music icon Paul McCartney made a lasting impact on popular music with The Beatles back in the 1960s.

In the recently released McCartney 3,2,1 documentary series, the 79-year-old gives an in-depth look into what transpired when he and his bandmates – Ringo Starr, and the late John Lennon and George Harrison – wrote and sang classics such as Let It Be and Yesterday.

The six episodes, shot in black and white, feature McCartney’s conversations with another seminal figure of rock music, producer Rick Rubin.

In one episode, McCartney discusses how experiences, such as The Beatles’ 1968 trip to India, influenced the band’s evolving sound. He also talks about his extensive post-Beatles work, touching on his solo releases as well as his 1970s band, Wings.

The festival by sports car manufacturer Porsche will also feature personalities such as Ms Lorin Winata, founder of Asia’s first non-alcoholic aperitif brand, Melati Drinks, crafted from Indonesian wellness tonics; and Dr Ayesha Khanna, chief executive of ADDO AI, an artificial intelligence advisory firm and incubator based in Singapore.

For vegetable recipes that require minimal cooking, I regularly turn to healthier Korean-style side dishes of sigeumchi namul (seasoned spinach) and sukju namul (seasoned mung bean sprouts).

Unlike stir-fries, these chilled side dishes are easy to prepare and can be done ahead of time.

So, when dinnertime rolls around, all I have to do is take out the seasoned vegetables from the fridge and dish them up.
