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



HAPPY NEW YEAR

2017 is the Year of the Rooster according to Chinese zodiac. The Year of the Rooster will start from Jan. 28, 2017 (Chinese New Year) and last to Feb. 15, 2018.    

Rooster is the tenth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957
, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029...

Rooster is almost the epitome of fidelity and punctuality. For ancestors who had no alarm clocks, the crowing was significant, as it could awaken people to get up and start to work. In Chinese culture, another symbolic meaning of chicken carries is exorcising evil spirits.
.
People born in the Year of Rooster according to Chinese zodiac have many excellent characteristics, such as being honest, bright, communicative and ambitious. Most of them are born pretty or handsome, and prefer to dress up. In daily life, they seldom rely on others. However, they might be enthusiastic about something quickly, but soon be impassive. Thus, they need to have enough faiths and patience to insist on one thing.
  • Strengths -- Independent, capable, warm-hearted, self-respect, quick minded
  • Weaknesses -- Impatient, critical, eccentric, narrow-minded, selfish
