6 UFOs appeared above an orphange in Malaysia entertaining kids with unique flight formations

At 10.30 p.m. tonight we saw six flying objects hovering above our orphanage located in a remote village in a small town called Gopeng, Perak, Malaysia. The flying objects flew in various formations first in circles then in a line at a 90degree angle going straight & upwards, then all six objects went into a circular motion.After a while they form another formation by "falling sideways" at a slant of 45 degrees with the the 1st from the top till the fifith objects moving and the sixth (bottom most) remaining stationary. After that they went back to a perpendicular position, evenly spacing themselves out.The scene was more "entertaining" than intimidating with all the 38 kids (most of them orphans & some from poor or broken homes. Next, three of them formed a straight line and the remaining three formed a circle, then the three objects that formed a circle converged into one, appearing like a small letter "i". Then all the 6 flying objects remained stationery prancing around in all kinds of formation emitting bright orange lights.I took some snapshots using the school's compact camera.As it is now "festival holidays" for the Chinese Lunar "New Year", I am unable to develop the negatives. There are six teachers and 38 students here and all of us were standing in the school field to witness the phenomena. Icalled the Air Traffic Controller at the local airport/Kuala Lumpur International Airport but none could confirm anything on their "radar screen". I reported the incident to a local press THE NEW STRAITS TIMES AND THEY CARRIED AN ARTICLE ON PAGE 7 in their Tuesday 23rd Jan issue which tinge with some ridicule.
