2 glowing fireball (white blue) crossing from west coast going to Mt. Kinabalu direction. Elevation more than ten thousands feet approx at speed 4X of Boeing 747. I did call Kota Kinabalu Air Traffic Controller, Mr. Mahali and he confirmed that their radar recording did not detect any activity on radar screen on such hour (06:57PM local time). He also confirm that a pilot on board ever saw a Unidentified Flying Object infront of his aircraft before. My call to ATC was recorded.

A child was alert that he saw a moving star. Then I noticed that is an object that look like star, glowing a white to bluewish color moving very fast from west to east for few seconds. Then the child telling me again another object trailing (the first object lost) moving at the same speed, same color but different path (about 15 degrees) then goes into the first object path. After a few seconds its gone. Another 2 boys also did saw that phenomenon, I am only an adult. Another boy that the eldest told me that he saw the same phenomenon yesterday (10/05/99) about the same time but moving from south to north as he says that object flying at too high speed (1 object only).Location of phenonemon about 116.1W 6.07N. Hopefully this information is something usefull on this part of the world.
