    This was my first trip to California ever. I had posted in one of my posts before leaving to LA, stating that I will be in California for the long week-end. Sit Dinkalot happened to see the post and send me an email welcoming me to Calif and inviting me to play some badminton there. At that moment I knew there was a reason why I hang out in this forum. It was really nice of Sir Dinkalot to extend that warm welcome to me to play badminton in LA. Although I did not get time to meet him or play badminton:crying:, I was really exulted with his gesture.
    All sorts of props to Sir "PANDA" Dinkalot................. Thanks buddy. Next time I am in LA, I will most definitely come play badminton with you.

    Here are some pictures..

    I wish there was some bad things I could say about LA, but alas I don't have any!!! But I do have to say that the weather was kind of weird!! Coming from Dallas, where it was close to 92 degrees, I was under the impression that California weather would be nice. It is my fault, I should have checked the weather channel before leaving. It was in the upper 50's when we got to LA and we went there with lots of shorts & thin t-shirts, totally not prepared for winter weather. Golly, it was cold!!!!brrrr. Finally, by the time it was time for us to leave on Monday, the weather got better. But, it was a very nice trip, we got visit the Universal Studios and had a nice drive on the PCH. Next time in LA, I am playing badminton for sure; this time, I couldn't convince my wife to let me go play badminton.
    Thanks Chris for the invitation. I will take a rain check on this one....:)

    Here are a few more and a little trivia question for you guys too.
    1. The first picture was taken because i found it intriguing because of the name on the billboard and the name associated with it "Masthi Malone's Icecream". I cant read Arabic, so dont know whats written along with it. This was taken from the famous Sunset Blvd.
    2 & 3. These are original sets from a very famous movie, can you tell me, which one??? It is a pretty old movie.
    4 & 5. Again, these are original sets from a very famous movie, can you tell me, which one??? It is a recent movie.

    In the 2000's is still recent:D. I was trying to compare it to the other movie, tied to the other 2 pictures. It was a very scary back in the day and even today some people think it is a very scary movie. It is an Alfred Hitchcock movie.
