This is definitively a hoya plant (wax hoya). You are lucky to have one of such size, they're not always easy to get to bloom.

It looks a lot like the plant I have which, I believe, is a Hoya Carnosa (Wax Plant)

Hoya Carnosa

Common name: Wax Plant, Waxvine, Porcelainflower, Hoya, Honey Plant, Hindu Rope, Porcelain Flower



Family: Apocynaceae



Synonymous: Asclepias Carnosa

Looks like it could use fertilising to deepen the green of its leaves.
