  6. I still use the kerosene stove since I saw gas fire in the hospital where I work.
    The man, a hotel manager was caught in the kitchen fire in the hotel. His entire body
    was white and he was breathing with whistling. Xray showed that his lungs were gone,
    he inhaled the burning gas fire and it burnt his lungs. He died within a few days
    in spite of the top notch care.
    You know the worse thing? Nigeria doesn't even have functional fire service outfit.

    1. Throughout my childhood, we never used gas to cook, because my dad's friend died in a gas fire accident. The irony was that we had an oven with electric cookers and gas burners as parts of the oven. We cooked with the electric cookers and baked with the oven, but never the gas cookers. We never had a gas cylinder. He refused to buy. We also used kerosene stoves.

      Four years back, he summoned courage and got himself a gas cooker. Anybody that uses it must endure his repeated cautions on its usage.

  9. Memories! I was still using that stove as at 2015.
    The first pics, the wick holder of a kerosene lantern. I still have a kerosene lantern at a corner in my kitchen. I remember cleaning the globe of my mum's lantern and it fell and scattered. Mum reminded me of that incident till I left home for school. Lol

  13. Oh! Memories. I remember the first day my mum brought back that stove, we all sat down on the floor to observe it keenly.
