In the year 1902, six men with the common surname of Wong (Huang), with roots in Zhongsan, China, and making their home in Hawaii, got together and founded the Wong Society, tracing their Wong common ancestral roots to the Jiang Xia Wong Kingdom in what is today's Hubei Providence, China, located on the banks of the Yangze River. Etched forever in the Hawaii annuals of the Wong Clan, they were Wong Chow, Wong Leong, Wong How, Wong Min Hoong, Wong Bat Ting (Wong Lam) and Wong Wing. They named the society Kong Har Gee Loo: Kong Har Home Away from Home (loosely, a clubhouse for the Wongs of Kong Har). The main purpose of organizing the society were for fellowship among the Wong clansmen in Hawaii, provide service to Chinese community, Hawaii's community at large, and our country, including doing charitable works.        View long story


2020 Year of the Rat

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.
Men born in the Rat year are clever and adapt quickly to new environments. They are creative great at taking advantage of opportunities. However, they sometimes lack the courage to do so. Although they have great ideas, they might not be suitable for leadership positions. Women born in the Rat year are the traditional women. They love keeping things organized and place great value on the family. Everything is taken care of by them and there is no need for their husband to worry. Outside of home, they’re also someone with a sense of responsibility and ability.

In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children. Optimistic and energetic, people born in the Rat year are likable by all. They are sensitive to other’s emotions but are stubborn with your opinion. Their personality is kind, but due to weak communication skills, their words may seem impolite and rude. On the financial side, they like saving and can be stingy. However, their love for hoarding will sometimes cause them to waste money on unnecessary things. Because of their independence and imagination, they are suitable for creative jobs. These include authors, editors and artists. However, if they join a team, their creative outlet may be blocked. Rats also pay attention to fine detail. They are fit for technical work, such as engineering and architecture. They are alert, but have a lack of courage. This makes them unsuitable as police officers, entrepreneurs or other leadership and political positions. Although Rats make good financial decisions, they should be careful not to invest with a close friend. It will not only cause money problems, but also affect the friendship.
