    Hi KNBG,
    I still cannot find a good store in Artesia to buy a salwar (either expensive or not upto the mark).
    Where is Loveleen exactly located? Whether they have good variety and cost worthy?
    On seeing your reply, I will plan my next visit dear!

    Hi Vidhya,
    Loveleen is at 18507 ,Pioneer Boulevard Artesia, CA 90701.
    Had been there a month ago, and got some silk cotton salwars with embroidery work , simple stone work for $60 to $80.
    They had a collection of simple cotton salwars for 5 for $100 and kurtis for $10 each.
    the shop is small and crowded, but if we are patient, then we can get some good ones yaar.

    Hi KNBG,
    Thanks for your info. Regarding online purchase I got one cotton chudidar from Utsav fashions. Rates are
    reasonable, but when we add the shipping charges it is high. One thing we have a wide variety of choice in online purchase, that too we can do it leisurely. We can shortlist, select according to our desired color, etc.

    hey , yesterday we went to this place Mount Wilson, near Pasadena/La Canada area, it's a long drive on the ghat road and it is so beautiful, maybe we can hang around at a viewpoint or go hiking, there are some hiking trails also if your are interested.

    Natural history Museum, La Brea Tar pits and Page Museum are good to visit.

    NHM has good collection of Dinosaur fossils displayed beautifully, several programs and events, like Butterfly Pavilion, Bug fair, Shows etc,

    La Brea Tar pits....an amazing place to see the Paleontologists at work......:thumbsup

    Disneyland of course!, Raging waters in san dimas!

    Lately we have been adventurous and have been visiting such places, one thing I highly recommend is parasailing on balboa island! My husband and a friend went ( I was too scared) they had a blast.
