HISTORY OF WKHT

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

Year of the Monkey

The monkey is a clever animal and is usually compared to a smart person. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the dignified Chinese official title of marquis was pronounced 'Hou', the same as 
the pronunciation of monkeyin Chinese. The animal was thereby bestowed with an auspicious meaning.

People born in a year of the Monkey are witty, intelligent, and have a magnetic personality. Personality traits, like mischievousness, curiosity, 
and cleverness, make them very naughty. Monkeys are masters of practical jokes, because they like playing most of the time. Though they don't have any bad intentions, their pranks sometimes hurt the feelings of others.

Those born in a year of the Monkey are fast learners and crafty opportunists. They have many interests and need partners who are capable of stimulating them. While some like the eccentric nature of Monkeys, some don't trust their sly, restless, and inquisitive nature. Although they are clever and creative, monkeys can't always exhibit their talent properly. Monkeys like to take challenges and they prefer urban life to rural.
