Landscape of Miri - 同心塔

I hope to post landscape photos of Miri every now and then. Today, I feature this tower opposite Pustaka Miri which has been there for a couple of years. Anyone knows the name of this tower?
Update: Thanks to my blogger friend who informed me that it is called 同心塔. I translated this to "Unity Tower".

Please refer to the Orang Ulu- as I have heard from some informed sources (I might have been misinformed too) that this was their project (in the design??) ...so each feature has a meaning too...

CY: I am not surprised. The center part is like hands upholding the top part.

At least the Rotary tower over in front of GK at Pujut is making some advertising revenue for the Rotary club funds.

This one is just wasting electricity and maintenance. On some days, it wasn't even lit!! Nice ornament, but ultimately usless and a waste of money.
