New hoya blooms

My Hoya mekongensis (or ssp. carnosa?) is blooming again. It's second time this year.

The plant is a vigorous grower, sending out new vines every where. Last year, I repotted it into a "free standing" pot and intended to keep in inside all the time. But it didn't like to be inside, so I had to move it back out into the shade house.
With all the vines, the plant doesn't look good in its pot any more. Maybe I will have to pot it again, providing a sturdy trellis for it to grow on.
Though the plant doesn't have nice perfume, its blooms are really eye-catching because they are quite large.
