Cassis Restaurant

Sometimes having a half dozen of fresh oysters for lunch is rather luxury and indulges. But then if we think positively, take it as it’s a reward after a hard work, or a reward after of difficult job or a date with your love one, probably you will think that’s not that luxury after all.

Well, I gotta think about that when I foot the bill for this splendid lunch for my loved one and myself. It’s the time that we spent together and the ‘project’ that we work together. I always tell my girlfriends or even my sisters, once in awhile, you gotta foot the bill, doesn’t mean you pay for that it means you’re stronger than the man. It’s something that you’re pampering him after a hard day work in the office or something else. It’s a way of compromising each other short fall or strengths in the day to day life or rather our marriage.

Coming another year, would be our 10th anniversary. I do have a wild idea, but honestly I don’t think I could do it all by myself without him sponsoring me. But whatever it is, it’s the 10 years that we both that had gone thru, whether the sweet moments, the tears, the downfall, the quarrel or mourning moments.

Lately we both have been dragged down by the project that we are working on, that’s something that is once in a life time you will face it. When you could see the entire object is nearly complete it’s finishing stage, you will tend to be very release and happy about the hard work and the time, and the thought that you’d spent on it.

Saying about that… I know many couples are happy hanging on with such projects and such work that husband and wife that could work on together. Of course, no one would want to have dictated another for what they want. The more you learn, you will agree with me that it’s a truly a special knowledge and experience to gain. It has never been easy to learn to compromise, to understand, and to respect to another person whom is brought up in a different way with you.

Cassis… a place where I made known from CK’s post, a place we both will know we will definitely step foot in it whether spontaneously or plan. No doubt this place is rather cozy and it’s a nice place for friends that enjoying food could hang out together. Though, it’s a lunch date that we had, whether it’s romantic or not, I guess it’s all from the heart.

Oh, I'm sure you have melted your hubby's heart. So sweet!

Hi Cariso, the price? It's actually RM60++ per pax. But since we both order something extra which is also in the menu, so top up RM28 and RM18 for the oyster and scallop respectively.

Hi Little Inbox, hehehehe... i think so?!! :)
