a pic thats not sideways would be better but it looks like a fukien tea...the only reason i say this is because i think i saw a little white flower...does it have white flowers? that's not the only way to determine..like i said a horizontal pic would be better if possible...

Its a Serissa.

Smaller leaves, notice how they branch out at internods, while a fukien tea leafs are in clumps, and will sprout from tough bark.
