Indonesia is on the whole very cheap, similar to Thailand or Laos. There are of course somewhat more expensive places within the country (e.g. Bali). Malaysia I found more expensive than other SEA countries, so budget a bit more for that. Alcohol is pretty expensive in both countries especially in Malaysia.
