Help us choose a country to live in

We are thinking of applying for jobs in international schools in the next few years. We'd like to choose between Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia or Hong Kong.
What we would prefer
- a financial situation that is a little more comfortable than the one we can have in Melbourne on 2 teaching wages (private sector so slightly better pay than state).
This could mean only one of us working but getting housing included
- a situation that is conducive to the fact that we will have one small child (baby due soon)
We've both been to KL and travelled reasonably extensively in Indonesia. We have some contacts in Jakarta. I've spent a day in Singapore and neither of us have been to Hong Kong.
We'd appreciate info on lifestyle, housing costs and the kinds of packages one is likely to get from an international school.
Assume that we are fairly confident of getting a job if a suitable school exists. He's British but also has Australian teaching experience. I'm Australian with British and International School experience. I previously lived and worked in Istanbul.
