Going to backpack around the world, one way ticket or return? Consequents when booking a one way

Is it possible to book a one way ticket from Europe (Holland) to Malaysia?

My girlfriend and I are going to travel around the world in the beginning of 2010. We start in Malaysia, ticket operators are giving me the warning that some country's in s.e. Asia will not give access to countries when you book a one way flight.

I'm stuck between a one way ticket or a return and not showing up on departure date, not knowing what the consequents are if we don't show up at the airport.

Please advise, thanks!

It's a requirement for visitors to Malaysia arriving by air to have an onward ticket - or return.

But they don't specify where the onward flight should be to.

So you can purchase a one way flight from Malaysia to say Thailand for a few months later and then print it out and show it when you turn up to the airport. Obviously chose a cheap flight - airasia.com has a few options.

In practice - I've only ever been requested to show the onward flight by the airline staff at check in. The immigration staff are much more relaxed.
