Birdwatching?

Hi everyone! We are planning our first trip to Malaysia (5 nights) and Singapore (2 nights) following a week snorkeling in the Maldives the end of December/beginning of January. This will be monsoon season on the East coast of peninsular Malaysia and much of Borneo. We are considering the following 3 options for birdwatching, nature and relaxation:

1) arrive in Singapore at 6:50 a.m., train or air to Kuala Lumpur, 2 hrs land to Kuala Selangor to bird and see fireflies, overnight at De Palma Inn in Kuala Selangor, bird in a.m. in Kuala Selangor, pm birding at Malawati Hill and on way to Fraser's Hill, Overnight Shahzan Inn (3 nights), bird Gap and drive to KL (3 hrs) with Kalao Voyages

2) Arrive in Singapore at 6:50 a.m., train or air to Kuala Lumpur, land to Fraser's Hill (2 nights), Kuala Gula (2 nights), 5th night in Kaula Lumpur/Malacca? Tour with Neal Nirmal.

3) arrive in Singapore at 6:50 a.m., take bus to Malacca (1 night), land to Fraser's Hill (1-2 nights), Palangkor Laut or Langkawi (2-3 nights), fly back to Singapore. Independent travel.

Comments? Any one with experience with Neal Nirmal/Green Village or Kalao Voyages? Suggestions on good bulletin boards to get feedback (have tried lonelyplanet and the malaysia site on fodor's but have received limited feedback). Thanks!
