My favorite orchid

This phalaenopsis is my favorite orchid; not that it is so sensational but it is content with my care.
It was small an insignificant for everyone when I bought it, though it already had an emerging spike. The little orchid opened all it's buds at my place and looks healthy, so far.
I often say that it is thankful for bringing it home.

Though the flower structure is different from other phalaenopsis flowers, there are so many types that I was not able to identify its exact name. On the label from the flower shop stays just phalaenopsis.

If someone happens to know this type, please, let me know.
