Your key moment from 2020?

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.

On a personal level my low point was the unexpected death of a close friend during the most locked down we were here in Thailand,. I've never been around a death or had to handle the aftermath, and it was one of the more stressful and draining experiences I've had, with the family unable to travel here and ensuring he was given a respectful send off.

As an observer, my high point was Scotland qualifying for the Euro football championship finals. Following the national team was a major part of my life before I became a working expat and gave me some of the best travelling experiences I ever had, so to see them back after years of decline is great. More importantly it gave the whole nation a major lift and something to look forward to, sport as always can still lift the gloom.
Yes sir, I can boogie, I can boogie, boogie, boogie all night long.

Hahaha that reminds me of when I'd finally arrived back in Cambodia, the morning crap and get to use the bum gun after 5 months
Now that was a 2020 moment to remember

No key moment yet.

It's been quite a good year for myself and my family, despite being without income all year and having to sell a shitload of unnecessary assets to pay rent and live.

Spent more time with my girlfriend and our kids than I have since the first kid was born, and have been watching them grow up by the week.

I'm re-evaluating what I want to do going forward as life is too short to waste working for third parties and we never know what curveball will come our way next

Just for the sheer number of layers to unpack in that moment.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but you could probably do at least ten thousand on this one without repeating yourself.
