Yet another dream of CTC and historical figures which intrigued me.

I did it again. Yesterday night I dreamt that CTC (Ex company I worked for in S'pore. You can read this post and this post for more info) have moved to factory sized premises and that I was back working with CK (My God Bro whom I always call Gege), Ian and another guy whom I can't recognize. We were sitting across each other at our desks when my lady boss called us out for some meeting, and we walked into something like a huge store area with all the other staff all sitting on work benches. Then Ms. Wee (lady boss) started talking and briefing us about the travel fair and stuff. It was damn funny and seemed so real again that when I woke up, I actually felt kinda disappointed it was just a dream.

In a perfect world, I would still like to be in my ex company and be situated here in Australia, Melbourne especially. No doubt, there were lots of OTs, stress and endless work to do, but it was so much fun! The travel fairs, the events and stuff, the special treatment by press and broadcasting network because we collaborated with them for events. I didn't need to sit and be bored at office all the time. We had heaps of people to meet(even TV actors and actresses), events to organize, travel fairs and road shows to prepare and set up. Best of all, I was happy. Isn't that one of the most important factor in work life? I just found out yesterday that they recently sponsored the Jay Chou's Secret movie premiere at Cathay. If only I were still working there, I'd more probably be able to get some special pass to go or something.

Anyway I should stop dwelling on the past. I myself chose this path right? So I should just make the best out of it, although I really really really miss my besties back home. Haven't got much updates. Will be heading down to Melbourne this weekend, so I'm hoping I get some luck with finding my bumble bee 08 camaro. The shelves here at Target, Big W and Kmart are still super pathetic. Even Kmart which I thought would re-stock on their sale today, still had the same usual old stuff they had for weeks. On another note, as some of you might know, I'm a history geek and I love to learn about the people and cultures of the past. Recently two figures caught my attention: Empress Tzu Hsi, last empress of China and Marie Antoinette, Last Queen of France. Been reading books and watching movies about them, the most recent was Marie Antoinette played by Kirsten Dunst. I have yet to find any movie about the past empress, so if you know any, do let me know. :)
