What you should know about Fashion By Adisa Gbemisola

          This word has been defined differently in time past, from centuries past and the present age. It is so glaring that it changes with time in the sense that what was used in centuries past are just so outdated now.

 If you decided to be so old fashioned that you dress the way they dressed then or you decide to wear the look of centuries past, there is no doubt that you will be a laughing stock outside.

 At the same time some of the dressing then and what was trending centuries past has also been brought back to this age but in another way, I mean in a charming way.

Rosemary The Accountant 2

Remember Rosemary, David, Mr. Augustine, the suspension? 
'I beg your pardon? Are you out of your mind, Do - do- do you know the implication of what you're saying' Mr. Augustine drenched Rose with chains of questions and stammered asking the last one like the man whose hand was caught in the pot of soup saying -I was, I was, I was-

Rosemary drew one of the two chairs fitly arranged side by side to face Mr. Augustine directly or whoever was sitting on his chair, the chair being dragged gave a hissing sound and Rose sat, heaved a sigh and started speaking.

Let's Embrace Our Differences



We are all totally different people, yes. My family loves garden egg and  I happened to be  the only one that doesn’t like it, I just don’t like it. I was in the kitchen one day and mum came with a garden egg which she had eaten two-third of and told me to take a bite, I did may be I would like it finally as I’ve always tried, I squeezed my face eating it, she did the same again until I gave it all up, she thought I might like it after taking several bites. I hope to like it though ‘cos  I’m already feeling intimidated.

Just like the different animals I’ve seen, heard of, read about, perhaps some I’ve even heard their voices without having to see them, they are all different animals but still animals, they are called animals. You will even hear stuffs like “this one you’re seeing isn’t of the same specie with that one over there, but they are of the same family.”

The PHOTOGRAPHER and the PHOTOGRAPH


Hey guys, from the table of HLG I bring a Photographer, whose work is popularly known as MAXIMIZE EXPRESSIONS. Having this interview with him was an amazing thing and I enjoyed every bit of it, though I’m not a photographer but I learnt some things that are applicable to every other field too and I believe you'd learn one or two things too. Read through and enjoy! 

Precious HLG: Good evening, can we meet you?

Matthew: My name is Babatunde Matthew. A graduate of computer Engineering (B.Tech). Aside few skills, I guess I got this interview because of one, which is photography!

Precious HLG: Nice meeting you. You're into photography, and I've seen a couple of your works, they are very nice and shows expertise, how did you start as a photographer?

Matthew: uhmmmmn! I started making photographs 2012/2013. It all began with graphics designing and I dragged photography into it that year, I was in school (University), part 2.

Precious HLG: OK, Thanks. Did you have other photographers close to you or it was a decision you made of yourself?

Matthew: There was none, however, there was someone I was looking up to.

Precious HLG: Alright, You mentioned graphics designing earlier, I still want to ask perhaps it's not so, so the question is 'Is photography all about having a good camera? What other things or skill should one have with it?' That's two questions.

Matthew: ahhhh!  After five years in this profession, it was not too long ago I realized that, 'even making good photographs is different from photography business. Photography is about much more, and its not first of all about having a good gear(camera). Having the good car does not make you a good driver, so having a good gear does not make you a good photographer. A photographer’s work is first of all

ROSEMARY THE ACCOUNTANT


'I quit.' Rosemary walked in quietly and politely set down the green file on the table her boss was standing close to. There were about five tables and chairs in the general office. Mr. Augustine had stopped by to check the work his employees were doing, he had always monitored his employees, ensuring  all hands were on deck.

Rosemary after her two weeks suspension was declared, she had only used three days in her suspension term, saving less than two weeks for it to be annulled. The other four employees with Mr. Augustine stared at her bewildered and expecting to hear more from her rather than the two words she just spitted out like a man who just realised he was chewing his forbidden fruit. Her words could only mean two things; either she quit work or quit suspension,  and if the latter were to be so, the green file must be the evidence that proves her innocence and quitting work was the last thing anyone could expect of her.

The whole office turned dead silent like a cemetery, even the high-pitched grating sound of the generator seemed to be in support of the one minute silence of the deceased. It was certain Rosemary was not ready to say anything after all, so someone needed to break the silence, but who?
