Pls give information about other proposed HSR other than KL-SG link.:cheers:
Map of SEA from google maps:
And map of Malaysia from google maps:
I can imagine the possible KL-Bangkok HSR line may be dangerous if Myanmar have a war with Thailand.

mahathir proposed it before, but in meter gauge.
HSR is possible for Singapore to Kunming, by:
KL - Bangkok, shared track
West Line: Bangkok - Yangon - Mandalay - Kunming
Central Line: Bangkok - Vientane - Luang Prabang - Kunming
East Line: Bangkok - Siem Reap - Phnom Penh - HCM - Hanoi - Kunming
Hanoi - Guangzhou HSR (either be Vietnamese operator or Chinese operator)
Hanoi - Nanning - Guangzhou - (Hong Kong?)
From Yangon to India via Bangladesh is ok.

The Guangzhou-HK HSR is planned but the university student in HK protest about this project. So I think not possible to build this link.
For the HSR to kunming, I got imagination the train might collapse with the animals:nuts:

I think just choose the narrowest place at the country and build there.
