Default UK-Malaysia on land

OK so its been a plan of mine for many years...and if i didnt have stuff to do in a few weeks back in the UK i would do it now but i wanna find out roughly how much to save to do malaysia-london by train and bus. if i can do it with a few thousand pounds i may just do it on the way back from my last free trip to malaysia next year. that would be ideal as i wont have a job and will have free reign on time and can take as long as i want (money the only constraint)

i worked out this time next year ill have about 2000 student loan which is supposed to pay for "summer accomedation until i find a job" i can possibly save some more but will not budget this in case its not possible.

from what i think its doeable. i know to get from KL to beijing i can do it in 500 pounds with some stop offs, in about 2-3 weeks. for longer stops im informed about all the places except china - if i wanted to see a bit of china how much would i need? maybe for 3-4 stops on the way.

from beijing i want to get the train into mongolia, and hang about there for a few weeks or longer im not sure, ill have to check where the train goes. then from there back on the train into russia and to moscow, with a few stops possibly.

from moscow its easy, i can get a train to poland then either carry on by train to the UK or get a coach to london victoria if money is low and i cant stop off anywhere.

has anyone done this, how long did it take, what did it cost, etc. for those of you who dont know me but can help im a cheap girl, often against local andf travel advice i travel for days on trains on a wooden plank, for a few pounds, eating white rice with nothing else, rather than a more expensive bed and stuff. for this trip id be happy to sleep upright in a chair if it means my money will stretch furthur. i never stay in a place that costs more than 5 pounds per night and if i cant find a place that cheap ill sleep rough in an airport or train station. i wreckon with my budget and complete disregard for western style of travel i can do this trip of a lifetime on 2K.

advice or help appreciated.

and yes i know im on a trip right now, and planning the next one, but im really ill and housebound and bored, i wanna make next years trip here make up for the crap time ive had this year!!!
Up next...

Euro trips for gigs and festivals as usual...
Then heading east to NZ & Aus for a few years! Via Abu Dhabi, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

Time to get out of the UK for a while!!
