Next up was a basketball game with my friend Ameera. The Raptors beat the Pheonix Suns in this exhibition game 121-100. And for scoring more than 100 points, we all got a free slice of pizza!
Gratuitous bum shot of Grant Hill for Ameera.
Ameera and I blissed out at the end of the game.
After the game, I headed uptown to my cousin Shelina's house. Her hubby Akhter was making a butter chicken feast! First he made naan bread from scratch.
A contrapation that Akhter made so that he could slide the naan dough onto a stone plate in the oven. He's bit intense in the kitchen.
The bread rises and gets crispy.
This is me creeping their spices. I like to return the kindness of a good host by checking out their bookcases and spice racks.
We used food colouring in primary colours, water, a straw and 45 minutes of time we will never get back to create this masterpiece of ice cubes.
Someone graffitis the back of our chef with flour. It had come to that.
My butter chicken dinner. I gave it a 10 out of 10!
Random shot of the shoe area. Have you ever had guests who arrange their shoes so neatly?
It was time for dessert and so we celebrated my niece Haseena's arrival into her 20s with this pink velvet birthday cake! It was delicious. Kind of a cross between a red velvet and carrot cake.
I got to close out the night with a quick visit with my Mom, Dad and Maji. While talking to my balding Dad, I noticed that one of his hairs had a split end. A bald man with split ends! I couldn't stop laughing!
Thankful for the letter b and that my family can laugh at themselves!
