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.
Tenzin lightens the mood and gets Shanaya to admit that being arrested by the guy she’s dating is pretty funny. Shanaya jokes that Tenzin probably has dirty cop fantasies about romancing a criminal, which prompts him to pull her closer and give her a cheeky kiss. So maybe it’s true?
Shanaya Chandran wasn’t expecting to get caught, but here she is at the police station getting her mugshot taken… by her lover, Detective Tenzin Gyatso, who was also the arresting officer. Tenzin assures Shanaya that for a minor crime like vandalism, she’ll probably just have to pay a fine.
As an orderly at Willow Creek Hospital, Shanaya delivers food to hungry patients. One of her patients, Hassan Shadid, is a food critic who doesn’t find the hospital food very appealing. Shanaya encourages him to eat up, as a full stomach will help him feel better.
Shanaya gets to know gym trainer Alfonso Salvatori better over a meal at Sunny Side Up Diner, which has great reviews. Alfonso will soon be moving to the Spice Market in San Myshuno, so he’s going to become a neighbour. Feeling a crush developing, Shanaya likes the idea of seeing him around the neighbourhood often.
While working out at the Harbor Quarter Gym in Windenburg, Shanaya notices the guy next to her has one of the most impressively built bodies she’s ever seen. Flirting between reps, Shanaya learns that Alfonso Salvatori is the new gym trainer.
Shanaya Chandran and Devya Chatterjee welcome their new housemate Rose Monroe to The Old Salt House in San Myshuno’s Spice Market district. Rose, being a foodie, thinks living here will be awesome, especially when the Spice Festival rolls around.
