World’s most beautiful clock towers

A welcoming view in San Francisco San Francisco’s Ferry Building, a Beaux-Arts building with a 245ft-tall tower, was the city’s primary point for arrivals and departures between 1898 and the late 1930s, when the Golden Gate and Bay bridges were built. Inside, a 660ft-long skylit atrium that once provided access to ferries now houses shops and restaurants, including Blue Bottle Coffee and the Asian restaurant Slanted Door. It is especially crowded on Saturday mornings when a farmers’ market takes over the space in front and in the rear of the building, overlooking the bay. (Julie Clarke-Bush) Colombia's grand gateway From a mosque-like tower in Malaysia to one of London’s most iconic structures, these five landmarks were designed to stand the test of time. In Colombia, the four-sided Torre del Reloj gate grants access to the most charming part of Cartagena – a walled section of 18th-century mansions, leafy squares and street cafes. The tower and clock were added in 1888; in the foreground, a statue of city founder Pedro de Heredia keeps watch. (Guillermo Vasquez/Flickr) Prague’s macabre mainstay Clockmaker Hanuš, who perfected Prague’s Old Town Hall Tower in 1490, was supposedly blinded so that he wouldn’t make a more beautiful version elsewhere. As the perfect revenge, Hanuš stopped the clock from functioning, and it was 100 years before someone would figure out how to repair it. The clock is known for its 12 marching apostles; a skeleton on the right, depicting Death, starts the show by pulling on a string and looking at his other hand, in which he holds an hourglass. Then, two windows open, allowing the apostles to make their moves. A magnificent late-Gothic door in the adjacent house serves as the main entrance to the Old Town Hall. (Reed Kaestner/Corbis) Moorish notes in Malaysia Completed in 1897 by the British colonial administration, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building anchors Kuala Lumpur’s Merdeka Square. Its Moorish style can be attributed to the mosques that architect AC Norman observed while in India. The Union Jack flag was replaced by the Malaysian flag on 31 August 1957, and many national events have taken place here since. (Boris Henriot) A storied sight in London “Big Ben” was originally a nickname used for the gargantuan bell inside the London clock tower. These days, the moniker refers to the bell, the clock face and the 315ft tower too – though the beloved icon was officially renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012, as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Built from the inside out, the stone and granite tower got its finishing touch with the clock tower’s installation in 1859. The cast-iron minute hands proved too heavy, so they were replaced with today’s lighted copper hands. (Paul Hardy/Corbis)

Hey that's San Francisco! My home! =)
@yinofyang I am glad that you like it . Do you have any clock towers near yoour place ?
@nollakolla hey that makes sense though that Clock towers was used in the past that people could follow the church time. I remember seeing the documentary about that in Brugge .
I really love clock towers. This is a great card, Tap! They're beautiful and have so much history.
I think it was something related to religigous I think. As I remember a tour I had in Brugge, belgium, they said that since the town so small, and as this clock tower helps everybody in town would be able to know what time was it of the day. So they could follow their work. Or they could come to church. ! It maybe true or not, need to find out more

Ball Pit Parties For Adults?!
The average American adult might forget where they put their car keys, but they just as reliably remember playing in a ball pit when they were young. Be it at Chuck E. Cheese's or some rich kid's birthday, ball pits were seriously the pinnacle of the party - and no one seems to remember that more than Forward Motion founder Ryan Lum. Forward Motion, a non-profit that specializes in making 'bucket list'-level experiences come true, wanted to give San Francisco-based adults an opportunity to relive their childhood - with very grown-up twist - by throwing a ball pit party at a bar. (Kind of like your standard ball pit - but WITH BOOZE!) Apparently, the event was a year in the making - as it took a little time to fundraise enough money for the 40,000 ball pit balls used. However, once the ball pit party finally happened this month, it was a HUGE success - with swarms of people coming in and out to dive into the ball pit, cocktail in hand. "I talked to many of the attendees as they left the ball pit with a huge smile on their faces. I overheard people saying things like, 'my inner child is so happy right now'. People loved the idea [and] wanted to know if there will be more." For those of you who are in the San Francisco area and want to get in on this action, another ball pit party is planned to be held at the Monarch nightclub next month. However, never fear, everyone else. Forward Motion hopes to bring more ball pit parties to other adults-with-inner-children in the US. In the meantime, at least we have this sweet video of the action, right? Who would be down for a ball pit party? What other childhood things do you wish you could do all over again? Personally, I'd be down for making goodie bags with candy and cute erasers and stickers for all of my birthday parties. I mean, why do goodie bags even stop at a certain age?
SFMOMA's Colorful Mondrian Cake: A Recipe
One thing I've been a little obsessed with lately is the special dessert collaboration between Blue Bottle Coffee and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The coffee company has created special desserts especially to be sold at the museum, all of which are inspired by famous modern artists. My personal favorite is a cake inspired by Piet Mondrian's "Composition in Red, Yellow & Blue". Mondrian worked with virtual simplification of forms until all that was left was thick lines and blocks that varied in color meant to create a sense of movement in the piece. Now replace all those lines and blocks with chocolate and fluffy pieces of cake, and you've got yourself something as fun to eat as it is to simply look at. The SFMOMA is currently under construction until early 2016, so you can only order full cakes off the Blue Bottle website. However, since their collaboration, head pastry chef Caitlin Freeman has also published a book full of all the different art-inspired recipes called "Modern Art Desserts". Here is the recipe for adventurous Vinglers who want to create a little edible art in their kitchen! (Attached is a bonus video of Blue Bottle Coffee making their on Mondrian cakes, plus my second place favorite SFMOMA dessert, the "Ocean Park #122"-inspired Richard Diebenkorn Trifle!) Mondrian Cake You will need 1 x 20cm square tin 3 x 450g loaf tin (measuring approx 16cm x 11cm x 7cm) or 1 battenberg tin For the cakes 500g unsalted butter 500g caster sugar 5 eggs 500g sour cream or Greek yogurt 750g self-raising flour 1 tsp of salt Red, blue and yellow food coloring gels or paste For the ganache 400g dark 50% chocolate, chopped 300ml double cream Preparation 1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Grease and line the base and sides of your tins with baking paper. 2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a food processor, electric hand whisk, or a wooden spoon and some elbow grease. Add the eggs, one at a time, plus sour cream, self-raising flour and salt, and whisk together until smooth. 3. Spoon 900g of the mix into the 20cm square tin and put to one side. 4. Divide the remaining mixture into three bowls, with approximately 450g of cake mix in each. Color one bowl’s mixture with the blue dye, another with the red and finally, yellow. You want the colors to be vivid, so really go for it. 5. Spoon the different colored mixtures into the three separate loaf tins and place in the oven, along with the square tin, for 45-50 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean. (You might want to rotate the tins so that they’re evenly cooked.) Leave to cool, then transfer to wire racks. 6. Meanwhile, make the ganache, which you will use to stick the cake together and coat the outside. Put the chocolate into a bowl and heat the cream in a saucepan over a medium heat. Just before it boils, pour it over the chocolate. Leave to sit for five minutes, then stir until smooth. Leave to cool. 7. Place the cooled cakes on a chopping board. Using a bread knife, slice all the edges off the cakes so that you’re left with long, brightly colored rectangles, approximately 18cm in length. 8. Using a picture of your chosen Mondrian for inspiration, very carefully measure and slice the cakes to make straight-edged long rectangles. Put the cake slices together as you build your picture. 9. Line two trays with baking parchment. Piece by piece, spread the cake lengths with the chocolate ganache, using it like glue to stick your strips back together to recreate your Mondrian on one tray. Put in the fridge to firm up for about one hour – this hardens the ganache and makes the cake easier to work with. 10. Remove the cake from the fridge. Spread the ganache over the cake, using a pallet knife to smooth it over the sides and top. Transfer to the fridge for one hour to firm up. Remove from the fridge, place the second lined baking tray on top and invert the cake. Use the rest of ganache to coat the remaining edge – you may have to heat it up slightly to loosen it. Make sure the ganache is evenly spread. Place in the fridge for a final hour, then remove and allow it to reach room temperature. Finally, slice the cake, feel smug and serve.

Warsaw
Traveling by car, after crossing the customs border, Poland was the first country of “classical” Europe on our way (forgive me Belarusians, Russia, like Belarus, I consider as a “special” part of Europe, so to speak, with its own “special way” ). The first thing we noticed when we passed the border was the quality of the roads (speaking of highways). In Belarus, the roads and hightways are clearly better than in Russia, and in Poland (in my personal unprofessional opinion), they are better than in Belarus. Even in the provincial border areas, road quality is striking. They are clean (dry and no reagents), effectively decorated with reflectors, with convenient interchanges, navigation and a network of auxiliary facilities (gas stations, recreation areas, etc.). We previously traveled regularly by car in Europe, but now the contrast is too obvious – in a short time we managed to compare all the options. Since there was a long way from the border to Warsaw, we decided to take a break at an intermediate point on the route, and for some reason chose Wroclaw. And regretted it. The city was not at all tourist-friendly: there was no parking in the city center, there were no cafes near the central sights, the terrible quality of the roads (yes, we drove off the highway, and were worried about our car’s suspension, bouncing on numerous Wroclaw pits) intense traffic on narrow streets, a large number of neglected Soviet five-story buildings and other moments. Without having made a stop there, we went further to Warsaw. By the way, praising the Polish roads, I would like to mention the shortcomings. The main – is a surprisingly aggressive driving style of Polish drivers. They are pruned suddenly, sharply, with some kind of (it seems) pleasure. This applies not only to cars, but also to trucks: here you are driving on the highway with the allowed speed (110-130 km/h), and suddenly between you and the car in front appears a truck that will drive in the left lane for a long time, like overtaking another truck on the right … After the streets of Moscow (which I personally think are filled with very aggressive drivers), the behavior of motorists in Poland was somehow even surprising. We arrived in Warsaw in the evening, and immediately plunged into a Christmas fairy tale: the whole city center is decorated with festive garlands, the Christmas market is filled with tents with mulled wine and all sorts of goodies, the main square (on which, by the way, there is a huge skating rink) and the surrounding streets are all in paving stones, historical buildings well maintained and in excellent condition. In general, amazing. One of the central squares next to the Christmas tree had illuminated dates of 1918 – 2018 hanging. We didn’t immediately understand what was going on. But the truth is, Poland in its present form is a relatively young state – after the First World War it left the Russian Empire, where it fell after the war with Napoleon. Indeed, this year Poland celebrates a significant date. Taking into account the complicated history of relations between our countries in the past (only the campaign against Moscow in the Time of Troubles is worthwhile, not to mention its inclusion in the Russian Empire, and there is no point in mentioning the recent history at all), it was interesting to see with our own eyes the real attitude towards Russian tourists. We didn’t notice any special attitude – all the tourists there are treated equally friendly. Well, except for dogs :)). Because finding a dog-friendly cafe in the center of the city turned out to be a daunting task. There were many pleasant places, but almost everywhere we were denied because of the presence of a dog. And only in one wonderful place – the cafe Ciao, Napoli! – we were very friendly received along with our pets. Not only it was unreally tasty there(the local pizza is worth trying), also a mega-friendly service. By the way, despite the fact that Poland has been a member of the EU since 2004, it has not yet introduced the European currency, so in all tourist places it was necessary to operate in the local currency – zloty. In most cases, it was not difficult to pay with a card, but the question of tips, for example, had to be decided on the situation. The next morning we strolled through Warsaw in the light of day, and the charm in a sense dissipated. In addition to the historical center, there are many “modern” structures in the city (apparently, since Soviet times), and such a city did not cause much of tourist interest. Of course, we understand that with more time, we could probably feel the atmosphere of this city (take a guided tour, walk through museums and historical sites). But for us it turned out to be enough this time to begin acquaintance with it in this way – for an intermediate point on the route, it turned out to be an excellent choice.

How To Make Mee Goreng Mamak (印度炒面), Fried Noodles with Indo-Malayan Flair
I love Indonesian food. Based on their history and interactions with the rest of Asia, the cuisine has subtle nods to Chinese, Thai, and Indian dishes, but with their own special (and usually nice and spicy) twist. Mee goreng is perhaps my favorite of the Indo-Malayan dishes. From the picture, it looks like a standard chow mein-esque stir fry, but the flavor involved is absolutely incredible and definitely sets it apart from its 'noodle cousins'. (Especially when you top it with fried onion pieces and just the right amount of sesame oil.) Mee goreng is such a popular dish that you can buy instant packages of it all over Asia. In fact, I have some friends who lived in Western Africa that enjoyed instant mee goreng as a steady staple through the week. (You can buy instant mee goreng at a majority of Asian supermarkets in America, but try this recipe for the real deal and super authentic stuff!) ------------------------------------------------------ Mee Goreng Mamak (Fried Noodles) 500 grams of yellow noodles Handfuls of beansprouts depend on liking 2 small tomatoes, quartered 2 small onions, chopped Handful of chicken breast meat, thinly sliced, or minced beef 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 potato, boiled and cut into cubes 1 small size dry bean curd, cut into small pieces 3 tablespoons of cooking oil (I usually use soybean.) 1 tablespoons of minced green onion and garlic 2 fish cakes, sliced (optional) Handful of shrimp, de-shelled and de-veined, optional 1 green chili or Thai chili or red cut chili, optional 3 tablespoons of ketchup 3 tablespoons of chili sauce or chili paste 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce 1 teaspoon of garam masala/curry/turmeric powder, optional (but highly recommended!) For garnishing (optional): Some cucumber slices Some fresh coriander leaves or green onion Some lime or Calamansi lime (cut into half) Some deep fried shallots Some grounded peanut + sugar mixture Sesame oil 1. Assemble all the ingredients that need to chopped or sliced. In a big frying pan, sauté the onion and minced garlic until fragrant. Add in turmeric or Garam Masala (if preferred). Add the chicken breast/minced beef, stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the dry bean curd, fish cakes and potato cubes. 2. Add in the yellow noodles and stir fry until well mixed. If the yellow noodles is too dry, add about 1/4 cup of water. Add the tomatoes, prawns, tomato ketchup, chili sauce or paste, freshly cut green/red chili (if any). Stir fry until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). 3. Add in the beaten egg, sugar and salt to taste, followed by the beans sprout. Stir fry until the beaten eggs dries up. Off the heat and transfer to the serving plate. Top with sesame oil to taste.
These Street Vendors Engage In A Battle Of The Bods.
So a few months ago, I wrote a card about the McDonald's Goddess, a Taiwanese fast food cashier that took the Internet by storm for her good looks and adorable sing-songy voice. Today, it was brought to my attention that there's options out there for the ladies too - in the form of hunky street vendors. Ladies, meet the guys serving up your streetside groceries with a little extra eye candy. (Warning: There's no way to write this without sounding like an issue of TeenBeat magazine. Gentlemen, please divert your eyes.) So the trend hit the Internet all thanks to Chen Yi-Tin, a Taiwanese part-time model turned street vendor that had his picture shared by women in Taipei after spotting him selling bean curd in a local market. Since blowing up the Chinese blogging site Weibo last summer, Yi-Tin's career's been on serious lock, grabbing him plenty of Instagram followers and campaigns modeling anything from fitness clothes to underwear. (GET ITTTT.) Not to be outdone, Malaysia soon called everyone's attention to their own male-model-slash-vendor Jordan Yeoh, who saw what Yi-Tin was going in Taiwan and thought, "Hey, why not go help my aunt and uncle with their durian stand?" And then, boom. Overnight Internet celebrity and fitness guru. Asia's social media game doesn't mess around. If you don't know what it is, durian is a fruit that smells a whole lot like used diapers. So I guess if your durian shake can still bring the ladies to the yard even though you smell kind of like where Chiquita Banana would go to die, you must be really, really, ridiculously good-looking. The vendor dude 'arms race' (pun intended) continued with Wang Xiang Hong, another Taipei native who's been pulling in droves of female consumers. As a busy college student, Xiang Hong never modeled professionally and was simply helping out a friend whose fruit stand was understaffed for a few months. However, Xiang Hong did get to enjoy a brief modeling career before enlisting in the military shortly after. Lastly, there's a Taiwanese cake shop employee simply known as "Cake Boy". (It sounds better in Taiwanese, I'm sure. Trust.) He first caught local attention after picking up part-time work at a streetside cake shop while attending college for sports, his specialty being volleyball. He began to go viral on Weibo after women visiting the shop noted his good looks pose something of a striking resemblance to various Korean pop stars popular in the region. (I know we've got some K-Pop fans here on Vingle. Do you ladies agree?) So what do you guys think of the hunky street vendor trend? Is it shameful vanity or smart business?
