A great place to have dinner and go to the movies in the close to city Eastern Suburbs. Nice little cinema (The Ritz) with cheap movie tickets ($13 for an adult), nice seats and big screens. And lots of places to eat. We went to Thai Riffic - great Thai food, quick service, nice tables and chairs - recommend the duck in plum sauce with real cinnamon and star anise. There is also a Thai Riffic in McMahons Point (essentially Lavender Bay). Also a really cute little gift/jewellery/clothing/homewares shop - live this (The Spot, 33 St Pauls St, Randwick - 9398 8664).
PS - Happy Mother's Day to my Mum who is still on a plane somewhere and to all the other Mums out there (to all my new Mum friends who are celebrating their first, second and third mother's days, you are all doing such a great job).
