Message To Our Readers Nelia D. Wongchuking, Family Matriarch

Thank you for visiting our site as we unveil our book about the life of my late husband, Wong Chu King.

Before finding success in building his cigarette empire and other businesses, he was met with numerous challenges and hardships that he gladly overcome with the help of his loyal, hardworking employees. We were fortunately blessed with six wonderful children – Emmanuel, Rosario, Helen, Marietta, Alexander and Caesar – who also helped grow the business to greater heights.

Now out of the cigarette industry, we move forward to new frontiers as we perpetuate the memory of our founder in our endeavors.

This is the story of Wong Chu King, his family and his legacy.
