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 Ram

HAPPY NEW YEAR

The sheep (or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe delicate and precious white jade to be 'suet jade'. Thus it is close to the meaning of good things. 

Strengths. People under the sign of the sheep are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.

Weaknesses. Sheep year people are often worriers who are shy, pessimistic, moody, indecisive, over-sensitive, weak-willed and puzzled about life. They are easily inclined to be deeply religious. They are timid in nature and like to be looked after by others.
They like flattery, compliment and suggestions from friends. They do not dare to express their love openly and usually have interests in strange theories.
