And my experience of Malaysia is that they are absolute sticklers to their carry on rules, including weighing the carry on at check-in/bag drop, and doing swoops around the boarding gate. Not complaining at all about that as it made boarding and departure an absolute breeze.

Must depend on the outstation, the first time I flew them I had forgotten about weight restrictions (a little spoiled by US carriers and BA in that respect) and my roller bag wasn't far off double the allowable weight. I was told to remember for the future and allowed to carry on. This was on a paid business class ticket FWIW.
