Plant ID

Hello, I’m wondering if anyone may be able to help me identify this plant please. I’ve just bought for 50p(and because I loved it)  But it has no label or care instructions. The leaves are quite thick and and feel a little waxy. I’ve searched online but has no luck positively identifying it, so any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    Looks like a hoya of some kind.
    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.

    I thought it was too, but not been able to find the exact type. They all look slightly different than this one.

    Maybe obovata but it's hard to tell from those pics sorry.

    I had a think about this on the weekend and it could be a dischidia rather than a hoya. I had a look online and a few species would fit the bill.

    Thank you, so much for taking the time to look into this for me, I really do appreciate it. Ive had a look online and it does look  similar dischidia- string of nickels,  tho I think the plants I bought ( I got 2) are not in the best condition, hence they were in the reduced section - The leaves are curling (not sure if it’s how they actually are meant to be or if they are not terribly happy) I will look into care for dischidia and see if they perk up. Thank you so much x
