I've got a bit of time and a bit of money, where should I go?

I want to spend some time in SE Asia. I have three or four months to do this (January through April). I could spend up to $5k-6k on this, though much cheaper would be better. Help me sort this out.

I'm thinking Indonesia and Malaysia (including Borneo) with maybe more of an emphasis on Indonesia. Should I be looking elsewhere? What kind of budget should I realistically plan for? I've found conflicting info. At this point I'm looking at flying into Jakarta in early January and flying out of Kuala Lumpur towards the middle or end of April. That's about all I have as a plan now, and I'm not especially tied to that.
Bonus Points: I wouldn't mind spending a couple of months somewhere teaching or doing other work/volunteering. I am TEFL certified with some experience teaching in Peru. Any recommendations?
