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.
