The Desire of One’s Dreams – No-nonsense Chinese Idioms

If you want to talk about your “dream-something” then this is the idiom for you. Whether it be your dream-job, dream-girl/guy or that dream-epic staff of the monkeyballs, why not give this bad-boy a try next time you wish to discuss. Be careful of the dreaded 3rd to 2nd tone on the last two characters (I like to think of them as one giant third tone, by I guess that is a whole other post).
