Looks like a cabbage tree, Fagraea crenulata. The tembusu is in the same genus: F. fragrans.

The cabbage tree looks like a ketapang, the large tree in the background. But the ketapang doesn't have thorns on its trunk, and its leaves are not opposite, unlike the cabbage tree, as shown in the photo.
