Helicopters Flying Over Our Place

On the evening of 1st May, two of my ex-colleagues sent me notification of the roads closure in Ipoh old town starting from 2nd to 4th May from early morning to midday. There was a big event held to celebrate the International Firefighters Day on 4th May. The rehearsal days were on the 2nd and 3rd May and I assumed these helicopters were part of the event. Thanks to my thoughtful ex-colleagues, we were spared from getting caught in the traffic congestion. We took note of the roads closure and we stayed away from that part of town for the 3 days.

On the 2nd May morning, I was watering my plants in the garden when I heard the thrumming sound and saw the helicopter flying overhead. I didn't think much of it. Then I heard the helicopter coming back again and there were two. After a while, they came back again and I saw there were three! Then I hurried in to get my smart phone ready to snap some photos if they come back again. I managed to capture the following shots with my humble phone camera. Of course, they are not of good quality but they are good enough for me.
These photos were taken from my porch area. Whenever I heard the thrumming sound of helicopters coming closer, I hurried out from my house and waited for them. It was hot and I was sweating away in my housecoat. Sounds crazy. Lol!

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

"Go and look toward the sea," he told his servant.

And he went up and looked. "There is nothing there," he said.

Seven times Elijah said, "Go back."

The seventh time the servant reported,

"A cloud as small as a man's hand is rising from the sea."

So Elijah said, "Go and tell Ahab,

'Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.'"

(1 Kings 18:34-44, New International Version-NIV)
