Nostalgia in fifty years.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Nostalgia in fifty years.

Post by Kung-fu Hillbilly »

In another fifty years the disappearance of what things might evoke feelings of nostalgia in Cambodia do you think?
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I usually stay near The Lost Room Restaurant and walking from there down the alleyway to Aeon Mall. they have these small food stalls . The pic here isnt exactly what i mean. Usually they are open to the alleyway and seem like they can be the first floor of someone's house. but this also would be missed

Love this dish...I would miss these types ofplaces

In future decades people will be looking back on the "Golden Age" of peace and prosperity in Cambodia which lasted from 1999 til 2029 or so. You ain't seen nothing yet. 8)

hahah I know.. but was using that as a reference... . Agree Barangs.. but when describing where I usually live. That is the easiest reference when explaining to someone.. most likely another barang.

Kar Sac Chreuk.(as near a phonetic sounding name as I can muster)

SWMBO makes this. It was her first ‘going away’ dinner that she cooked.


To KFHB
The Khmer will get over ambitious with big buildings as they have in KL, PP will be ‘sanitized’ but will lose much in the process.

Street food, for instance will be pushed out, over regulated.

It will be a shadow of what was.
