{The Bird Southern Table & Bar}

Was given the luxury of taste testing The Bird Southern Table and Bar Menu's w the boy 😛
It was such a pleasant experience!
Both the atmosphere of the restaurant & the dishes served were A class.
Will be sharing a review on the dishes we were treated to today 😌


The Bird Southern Table & Bar is located at B1 of Marina Bay sands.
It is a perfect combination of the southern cuisine & culture with specialty dishes such as 
Fried Chicken & Waffles!


We were greeted by their really friendly & easy-going manager, Scott, 
who gave us the best seats in the house 😛
We were seated next to the kitchen where we get to see all the action!

Here's a little overview of what we will be ordering for the night:
(they were really kind to let us try dishes & cocktails that weren't in this menu)


❤️🤓 But first, 
a mandatory photo of us HAHAHAH



For starters, 
we were served with their Deviled Egg and Fried Green Tomato BLT.
The Deviled Egg has a very smooth and creamy texture which was the perf way 
to start up your appetite.
As for the Fried Green Tomato BLT,
I was really pleasantly surprised by how
good it was!
The house smoked pork belly was done so well that I had to resist from asking for seconds 😶
The meat was tender & the crispy tomato was a nice touch to it.


These starters were accompanied by their innovative cocktails!
Had so much fun with their Sub-Zero Floral Aviation. 
This cocktail was really light & easy to drink.
It comes with dry ice that was submerge in lavender water, creating a scented fog 😍
Def instagram worthy haha 


Marcus ordered the Watermelon Sling,
a refreshing drink with freshly pressed watermelon juice & White Whiskey.


Ended up with drinking both of the cocktails 🙈
Had to wait for what feels like forever to sink my fingers into the main course
cause Marcus was busy snapping away pictures on his DSLR.
This was me literally 👉🤤


Well, being the cheese lovers that we are,
we HAVE to try their Macaroni & Cheese 😍
& Boy, it did not disappoint!
It is created with five artisanal cheese, pasta & crispy herb crust.
Simply irresistible & the perfect comfort food!
Really liked it how the cheese melts in your mouth & it didn't have the "overload" kinda taste to it
like you sometimes get from eating too much cheese. 
Also, 
I was surprised by how big the serving size is. 
Wouldn't have been to finish this alone. 
Marcus loved this dish.
Think he polished off 2/3 of it on his own 😆


& of course, we have to give their burger a go 😛
Burgers are easy to make & they can be found everywhere
but a good burger is really hard to come by. 





They are definitely very generous with their portion size here!
A double patty burger with bacon &&&
IT WAS SOOOO GOOD!
The patty was done just that I love it to be (medium rare).
It was crispy on the outside & thick & juicy on the inside 😋
The smoked bacon also added a nice texture to the burger.
Gotta add how the patty wasn't one of those with lots of fatty area so was a major plus point from me!
No doubt one of the best I have tried thus far.
👍


DRUM ROLL PLEASE 
It is time for me to introduce the last main course that we got the pleasure of sinking our teeth into!
🤓
Yeap, it's their signature dish & the crowd's favourite,
Chicken 'N' Watermelon 'N' Waffles (Lewellyn's Fine Fried Chicken)!


I mean, just look at it!
The chicken looks fineeeee 😎
Needless to say, 
we were shocked at how it was a half a chicken's portion!
The batter was thin, not one of those thick doughy kinds (thankfully).
However, we were slightly disappointed as we thought there would something in the flavour that will make it really stand out from the other fried chickens.
Even though the waffles were fluffy on the insides,
they were not as crispy as I hope it would be. 
The watermelon on the side was an interesting touch to the dish. 
Def not something that you will find in the regular chicken & waffles. 

Cheers to a good meal 🍸


Are you ready?
It's time for me to share bout the desserts of the night!
MY FAV COURSE 😻
I am someone who always look at the dessert section of the menu 
before flapping to the main courses hahaha


I think the look of distress on our faces was evident so Scott was really kind to let us 
have our hands on on not just one but two dessert dishes!
We were having such a hard time deciding on the desserts cause everything sounds so good 😶
#glutton 

We settled with Scott's recommendations:
Salted Caramel Bread Pudding
Banana Pudding 


Bread puddings are my absolute fav dessert dish
& Mmmmmmm 🤤
This is absolutely yummy!
The warm custard bread pudding is showered with whisky anglaise drag pecans & gooey salted caramel with chantilly cream on the side. 
It was so good that I could probably eat 2-3 of these in one seating!
The pudding was moist & the cream goes so well with it.
It was a really good combination.


Who wants a taste of it? 😝



Then, 
we were treated to their Banana Pudding!
This really pretty dessert came in a jar filled with rum-soaked banana cake & fresh bananas. 
It is topped with chantilly cream, crumble & vanilla wafers. 
A little too rich & creamy for my liking but I like the idea of how there are fresh bananas in the cake 😋

Can you see the boy hard at work w taking pics in the background? 😂


In a nutshell, 
I would say that the Fried Green Tomato BLT is worth a try.
It's one of those dishes where you can't gat anywhere else as 
the quality of it is really good!
The Burger was hands down my fav out of the all the main dishes.
There's def no doubt bout it! 
👍👍 Double thumbs up for the burger hehe
(Marcus reckons that the Mac & Cheese was the best outta the lot though)

As for the dessert, 
The bread pudding def stole my heart that night 🙈
It's a dish that I will def go back for!

Gotta add that Scott has been absolutely patient with us, 
describing how the dishes were made & what they consist of 😌
Once again, a huge THANK YOU to the The Bird Southern Table & Bar for having us 🙆
We truly enjoyed ourselves!

(A Better Florist}

Mesmerizing Flowers from the Best Florist in Singapore


Times have changed, and with time our taste changes as well. Whether it’s for clothing, make-up, cars, jewelry or flowers, we evolve and are constantly on the hunt for something modern, fresh, unique. Since I am a huge flower enthusiast, and love everything flower related, I am always searching the Internet for the best florist in Singaporethat has what I like right now. 

Needless to say, there are many florists that offer flowers in Singapore that are accessible but look pretty average. I like flower bouquets that are authentic and don’t resemble what everyone else is carrying in their hand. Because of this, I came across A Better Florist in Singapore, the best flower delivery in Singapore

The first impression is definitely based on their designs. Their flowers look amazingly fresh, perky and they are combined together to form a breathtaking bouquet. It’s the combination of colours, flowers and their classy wrapping that makes the entire flower arrangement come together into flower perfection. 



From my experiences with the florist in Bugis, you’ll never have to wait on these beautiful designs to reach your home. Not weeks, not days, not even hours. Their 24 hour florist delivery in Singapore is one of the best I have ever experienced, as they are able to deliver the flowers to any area of Singapore within only 90 minutes of you placing the order. You are able to place the order in their shop, online, using your phone or laptop, and it’s super simple to use. Even if you’re not that into online shopping, when a flower emergency pops up, you’re going to enjoy shopping online. 

They’ve made it easier for you to shop, by always having a beautiful selection of flower bouquets displayed on their website, and you can simply choose the one you prefer. 
Their offering is also quite extensive, offering more than just flower bouquets and arrangements. They also craft wedding bouquets, fruit baskets, flower bundles, get well soon hampers and basically what your heart can think of. 

From the start, I was attracted to their designs and a decent price, but what took me in further was their creativity and dedication to flowers. To some, flower design might not be so important, but these guys take their job seriously and are true artists on the Singapore floristry scene.



After doing some additional research, because I never stop researching, analyzing and comparing, I noticed that they also have a Dubai florist and a Hong Kong florist, which further convinced me that A Better Florist offers flowers of the future, and are charming their way into the hearts of everyone not just Singaporeans. So if you are in search of the best florist in Hong Kong and the best flower delivery in Hong Kong, and you’ve seen how these guys work and create, you’re able to rely on your favourite florist outside the borders of Singapore.

I truly enjoy it when a business strives to be different, and A Better Florist has definitely made a revolution in the floristry scene that is flourishing more and more, with every day that comes. Check out this piece of flower heaven, and see the beauty for yourself! :)

(ChiroKare Spine & Nerve Clinic)

HELLO FITFAM :}
I'm back to share with y'all bout my very first experience with a clinic that specialises 
in chiropractic.
For those who are new to chiropractic,
it is a form of treatment (an alternative for medicine) for mechanical disorders of the 
musculoskeletal system, esp the spine. 
The main chiropractic techniques involves manual therapy, 
especially spinal manipulation therapy (SMT),
manipulations of other joints & soft tissues. 
Many of y'all will probably know it as the "clicking of joints". 

I was fortunate to be given a series of sponsored sessions with ChioKare 
to experience what is it like to be under the care of a clinic that specialises solely in chiropractic. 


Before the start of the session, 
they will carry out an analyse of the posture & various alignments of the body by taking 
frontal and sagittal photos of the client
against the postural analysis grid chart below.


The photos are then given
 to me as a reference for the consultation that I will be having with the Dr. Kim 
before proceeding to the treatment. 


I was treated with a series of treatments such as manipulation of the spine from 
the neck to the lower back, 
treatment using the Drop Table
& the Activator.
If you haven't,
you can check out the video that I shared on IG bout my visit 
HERE :)
Honestly, 
I was a little surprised by the Drop Table & the Activator as 
it was my first time experiencing such treatments. 
Even though they may sound kinda loud,
the treatments were painless.
It wasn't my first time getting manipulation but 
I was really impressed was how Dr. Kim was able to manipulate my spine really 
smoothly & effortlessly.
Psst....
He has lots of certificates under his belt hahaha
Besides the treatments, 
he also shared with me some of the stretches & exercises that I can perform on my own
to improve blood flow 
& reduce the crazy tension in my traps & neck.
Needless to say, 
I left the clinic feeling like all the tension has left my body heh
