Eyes on Miri
Part 3 of a series of illustrations
Part 2 in a series of illustrations.

Not very long ago I wrote about a clock tower in Miri. It's about an old clock tower that had its face covered up in one of the Miri roundabouts. That clock was one of the oldest in Miri.
It's as if we Mirians have some sort of taboo or superstition from having big clocks in public!
Well, if that's the case, London had an even bigger one for over a century and they had no problems...
But it's more than a clock tower which had its face covered up, it's about the way people do things. When something is broken, what one must do is to get to the root of the problem and fix it nicely and permanently, not to just cover up the surface of it or sweep it under the rug and pretend nothing happened.
