Enjoy the long Polling Day weekend with your children by doing kid-friendly science experiments.

The Science Centre Singapore has been uploading bite-size, educational videos, mostly of experiments that are easy to try at home, in a series titled Science O’Clock on Facebook every Wednesday.

The latest episode is an exercise to extract DNA from strawberries with dishwashing liquid and alcohol.

These experiments, with the hashtag #stayathomescience, are a fun, stress-free way to squeeze in some science revision.

The joy of cooking oyster omelette, popularly known as orh luak in Teochew or orh jian in Hokkien, is that you get to decide exactly how many of those juicy plump oysters are going into the sizzling pan.

It is best to cook this dish with a flat pan, to match the large flat cast-iron pans used by hawkers.

For contemporary dance company P7:1SMA, the commission for the National Arts Council and The Straits Times' 30 Days Of Art series offered a chance to put into practice some ideas the group had been discussing.

Norhaizad Adam, 32, the company's founder and artistic director, says: "At present, our associate artists are having discussions about performance-making in times of crisis with Ming Poon, a Berlin-based choreographer who was born in Singapore.

"This project reminds me of our discussion on the fate of theatre, a physical infrastructure and the economy of it."
