Happy Chinese New Year to All

Brief History of Oh/Foo/Hu Family
By Uncle Beng
The first ancestor originated from Gansiu in the Hwang Ho Basin. He was believed to be a blacksmith. Owing to the civil wars, the north-eastern people moved southwards and ended as “Hakka” or guests. From southern China some even settled overseas like Korea and Taiwan. Our own ancestors settled in Yongdin in Fujian province whilst others stayed in Guanzhou whose dialects were Cantonese Hakka and Teochiu Hakka. These migrants brought their architecture of the famous round house (please see Keong’s painting of the Round House) whereby the walls were built using the same technique as the Great Wall of China to withstand attacks from local forces.
Fan Yee Says
It has been quite some time that I didn’t write anything for the Source.
Well as usual, my family have been very busy with each others’ task.
Dad still busy with his job as project manager, mom still busy with her business but also with an additional baby-sitting on Eu Shin.
Me working as usual but also will take over baby-sitting Eu Shin after work. Chin Sai also very busy back in Kem Majidee. Fun Foong was travel back-and-ford from Kampar every week for study and teaching tuition. Fun Yen also busy with his study in Subang Jaya. He currently also training to perform in coming 1st May to 2nd May 2010 in dance theatre “Romeo and Juliet”. Beside this performance, he also involved himself in “Cinderella” at the end of this year.
Eoi Lin says
2009 is a quiet and peaceful year to my family. Praise to God that everything were okay.
As usual, I continued my career with Hong Leong Assurance. Although in the office there were politics and some hiccups, praise to God that nothing bad happened. I enjoy my working life with Hong Leong Assurance.
There were many rumors of other companies taking over Hong Leong Assurance and up to today, there is still nothing official taken place.
Times really fly. When I look back today, I realize that many of the previously little cute babies and kids have now all grown up.
