tRecess

In the fast-paced and high-stress study environment of the university, many students tend to overwork themselves and forget the importance of stepping back and taking a break. tRecess serves as the avenue and reminder for Tembusians that resting is just as important as studying. tRecess explores various relaxation and stress-relieving techniques such as face masks and aromatherapy, over the semester and provides ideal relaxation techniques for every individual. We believe in learning to rest.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
