The School by Jaya One: Win A Tricycle in conjunction with ‘Sun Day Out’





Spend Your Sun Day Out at The School with Your Precious Little Ones!

As a parent myself, I am always constantly looking for activities to do with my little one. We work a lot during the week days and so we try, or at least I try, to make sure to spend quality time with my little one. It’s really crucial during their growing years that we parents constantly give the little ones our time and educate them as much as possible in order to ensure that they are set for their coming years as a responsible and mature adult.






The School by Jaya One, the first enrichment mall in Malaysia, recently launched ‘Sun Day Out’ – an indoor cycling for free, starting from 17 August, every Sunday from 10am until 3pm. Taking place on the Ground Floor in The School, there will be free tricycles and bicycles for hire for kids aged between three to seven. Parents who are interested to rent will have to register at the Customer Service counter. Additionally, they can also get to redeem a limited edition The School goodie bag when they obtain three stamps on their ‘Sun Day Out’ ticket from the Customer Service counter. Families are strongly encouraged to “Bring Your Own Bicycles” (or known as BYOB).


“As a parent myself, we understand that safety for kids always comes first in parents’ minds. As much as we want our children to have fun, we also want to ensure that the environment is safe for them to play, learn and grow,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Jaya One’s developer, Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd. “By kicking off this weekly activity, families can enjoy quality bonding sessions with their children while immersing themselves in a healthy activity,” he added.


Sun Day Out is perfect as a Sunday activity for little ones. There’s more to The School than just the indoor cycling. Check out their other educational programs and activities available at The School. In addition, adults and kids are treated to a Sunday foodie expedition with food trucks. Yep, Sundays are definitely made even better with awesome street food trucks!

It’s sort of a picnic experience where one just needs to select and purchase your favorite food and head over to some seats nearby to enjoy them. Besides the food trucks, there are more food ranging from desserts, pastries and burgers in Pop by Jaya One, which is located on the Ground Floor of The School as well.






That’s not all folks… in conjunction with ‘Sun Day Out’, The School is giving away ONE (1) tricycle worth RM300!

Here are the contest mechanics:

  • LIKE The The School's FB Page: www.facebook.com/theschool.my and Jaya One's FB Page www.facebook.com/jayaone

Each one has its own deliciousness in flavours and textures. Served piping hot, the steamed dumplings are a real treat and make a great impression with everyone at our table.

Steamed Rice Rolls with Fresh Prawns and Chive Filling is pretty yum! Besides this, there are two other varieties of Steamed Rice Rolls with Fresh Scallop Filling and Steamed Rice Rolls with Barbequed Chicken Filling.

We also enjoyed Steamed Chicken Bun with Fresh Salmon Fish, Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken Wrapped in Lotus Leaf and Steamed Squid Ink Bun with Salted Egg Custard.

The unique pairing of chicken and salmon in the Steamed Chicken Bun with Fresh Salmon Fish is gorgeous as the salmon is beautifully moist and flaky together with the chicken. We can’t it loving the Steamed Squid Ink Bun with Salted Egg Custard the moment we break open the hot bao as a creamy savory salted yolk custard dribbles out like golden luscious lava.
