Arun Bheeda angrily chews out his neighbour, Kishan Anand, after loud and inappropriate noises coming from Kishan’s apartment disrupt toddler Milton’s sleep. From his state of undress, Jesminder can tell that Kishan must have been entertaining a hot date.
After a long day of playing with friends, Milton Bheeda is exhausted after returning to his apartment in San Myshuno. His mother Jesminder tucks him into his toddler bed and reads him a bedtime story from his favourite book, and he drifts off into a restful slumber.
Milton Bheeda is visiting his new friend, Darrin Sierra. Jesminder Bheeda watches while the toddlers calmly play with Darrin’s doll house. Jesminder felt like some supervision would be wise, after Milton’s recent play date at the Pancakes’ house resulted in a giant mess which needed cleaning up.
Jesminder asks her husband Arun if he’s considering that job offer from Rainy Day Entertainment. She offers to quit her job and look after Milton during the day while Arun pursues a lucrative career as a Tech Guru. It will also give Jesminder the chance to paint more, which she loves to do.
Jesminder cradles her baby son Milton in her arms. She works eveninings as a mixologist, so any quality time she gets to spend with her baby during the day is precious. Jesminder’s job is the primary source of income for the family, and there’s apartment rent and expenses to pay.
Arun and Jesminder Bheeda invite some of their neighbours to socialise in their small Spice Market apartment. Jesminder chats with Shanaya Chandran and Rose Monroe from the Old Salt House across the square, while Arun evangelises the benefits of vegetarianism to Tyson Temple and Kengo Shimizu from Culpepper House next door.
