Hi Maya, This is a good question. In this situation you would not use any of the phrases you wrote in the question. Here are the most common ways to express this: 1. What's up with...? (informal) 2. What ever happened with/to...? (average formality) 3. Oh! I just remembered about... (continue the expression with your question) All three are used a little differently. Example for 1: What's up with your leg? Is it still hurting? Example for 2: Whatever happened with your job interview? How did it go? Have you heard from the company? Example for 3: Oh! I just remembered about your vacation. How was it? I hope this is helpful. If you have additional questions you can ask them below. Thanks

A typical expression is "it all comes back to me now".
