{Plantronics BackBeat FIT 305 Review}


Was really thrilled when I received my Planltronics BackBeat FIT 305 (Retails at S$149)
as I am always on the lookout for a good set of earphones for workouts. 
Music is essential to help push pass the last rep
& it is scientifically proven that listening to music during your workout
actually improves work performance!
For me, 
it is always a chore to workout with the wire connected to my phone
as it hinders my movements 
& I will also need to make sure that my workout pants has 
a compartment to hold my phone in place. 
Therefore, 
going wireless during workouts is the way to go for me!


These are the various components included in the package:
Plantronics Backbeat FIT 305 Wireless Earbuds 
Sports mesh pouch
Charging cable 
Silicone ear tips
Cord stability clips
Quickstart guide 




Eagerly tested out the Plantronics Backbeat FIT 305 during my workout sesh
& here are some of the key features that I like bout this set of earphones: 

1. Sit comfortably in my ears
It has an extra loop at the top which allows it to sit securely in the ear.
This is an important feature for me as it is stable & secure
even during high intensity exercises like Burpees. 




2. Sweat-proof Design
I dont know bout you guys but I sweat buckets, esp when I am working out. 
You don't need to worry bout them getting wet from perspiration or when you're caught in the rain 
as the earbuds were built to take on sweat, rain & spills!
Water-resistance protection is def one of the key features that I am looking for in 
selection of headsets. 

3. Compact & Ultralight
I really looove how this set is really portable & it even comes with a pouch for storage!
It is lightweight & sleek. 
Even the control panels for volumes & switches is simple & compact. 


4. Blocks out majority of the noise 
The base & sound is pretty decent & majority of the noise from the environment 
is also blocked out when you have your music on. 

5. Wireless Range
I tried testing out how far I can go till it disconnects from my phone/ the music is muffled 
& I am pretty pleased with this pair!
I tend to leave my phone in a corner while 
doing walking lunges so I was pleasantly surprised at how good the connectivity was!
Went to look it up & realised that it has up to 33ft /10m wireless range :o

6. Charing Cable
This is another thing that I pay attention to when looking at wireless headset.
It uses the common charging cable 
so there's no need to worry bout losing it & needing to look for a replacement. 

These are features are basically what I look for in a good pair of headset.
Comes with experience from using different of earbuds hehe  

Here are more key features of the Plantronics BackBeat FIT 305 that I think really improves the user experience:
- 6 Hours of battery life
- Reflective sport-weave cable (provides visibility at night. Eg. evening runs)
- Wideband enabled mic
- Battery voice alerts

I am pretty pleased with this pair of headset 
& the user experience has been very smooth thus far. 
It is easy to set up & user friendly. 

NOW FOR THE EXCITING PART!
You would have probably heard bout me doing a giveaway!
YOU can win yourself a set of Planktronics BackBeat FIT 305 (courtesy of the good folks from Plantronics).
Will be sharing an IG post for the giveaway & stay tuned!

{The Bird Southern Table & Bar}

Was given the luxury of taste testing The Bird Southern Table and Bar Menu's w the boy ๐Ÿ˜›
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 ๐Ÿ˜Œ


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 ๐Ÿ˜›
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)


❤️๐Ÿค“ 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 ๐Ÿ˜ถ
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 ๐Ÿ˜
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 ๐Ÿ™ˆ
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 ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿคค


Well, being the cheese lovers that we are,
we HAVE to try their Macaroni & Cheese ๐Ÿ˜
& 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 ๐Ÿ˜†


& of course, we have to give their burger a go ๐Ÿ˜›
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 ๐Ÿ˜‹
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.
๐Ÿ‘


DRUM ROLL PLEASE 
It is time for me to introduce the last main course that we got the pleasure of sinking our teeth into!
๐Ÿค“
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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž
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 ๐Ÿธ


Are you ready?
It's time for me to share bout the desserts of the night!
MY FAV COURSE ๐Ÿ˜ป
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 ๐Ÿ˜ถ
#glutton 

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


Bread puddings are my absolute fav dessert dish
& Mmmmmmm ๐Ÿคค
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? ๐Ÿ˜



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 ๐Ÿ˜‹

Can you see the boy hard at work w taking pics in the background? ๐Ÿ˜‚


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! 
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ 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 ๐Ÿ™ˆ
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 ๐Ÿ˜Œ
Once again, a huge THANK YOU to the The Bird Southern Table & Bar for having us ๐Ÿ™†
We truly enjoyed ourselves!
