Ms. Abigail Ang

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Abigail is a second year Psychology major who is trying her best to live a sustainable lifestyle and responsible enough to keep at least three plants alive at a time. 

Prior to joining the Residential Team, Abigail dabbled in publicity for Curios Magazine, served as a committee member for Filmbusu, and helped to organise the annual T-Halloween. She believes that the best way to learn is to try new things and talk to people with different perspectives, which is also why one of her life goals is to try as many wacky jobs as possible. 

While she is not trying to nose-boop every cat or dog in sight, Abigail likes to take long park walks, go for gigs, cook, graphic design, and daydream about making costumes as fabulous as the ones in RuPaul’s Drag Race. 

If good things come in small packages, she is a really good one. Please do not be deterred by her weird quirks (e.g. sniffing her food before eating it, taking 30 minutes to brush her teeth) and feel free to pop by her room if you want a listening ear, help with writing essays, a comforting cup of tea or vitamin C :)

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.
