The sucky part about being an expat

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.

My condolences.

As I gear up to take off I have these things in the back of my mind.
Ditto. My Mum is approaching 90 and it weighs heavily on my mind also....

Sorry to hear about it. Its' definitely difficult to live halfway across the world in times like these. Just cherish the time you have with your dad and sister, make it count. Better than living nearby but not actually appreciating the time spent together.

I think sometimes we wait too long to say things we feel now

Reminds me of Clapton's song My Father's Eyes
