It will be best to establish this relationship with someone whom you can visit repeatedly and benefit from his company/ suhba.
Keep searching for someone in Malaysia.
In meantime do two things,
1. Make dua after every Esha salah in this regards. Ask Allah to facilitate getting connected to a genuine shaykh who can guide you to Him.
2. Try your best to do the faraidh & Sunnah actions and abstain from all that is impermissible.
InshaAllah you will be successful.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any other information.
In need of your dua,

I read on your site, regarding an individual from Malaysia who wanted to get connected to a shaykh from the ashrafiyah silsilah, and advice from yourself to look for a shaykh in Malaysia.
There is one Moulana Umair in Malaysia who is a khalifah of Moulana Abdul-Hamid Ishaq (db) from South Africa. Moulana Abdul-Hamid (db) has spoken highly of him in many majalis. If the person who wrote to you is interested, he can speak to Moulana Abdul-Hamid (db) and get Moulana Umair’s contact detalis.
Moulana Abdul-Hamid (db) can be contacted on +27114132786 between 12noon and 2pm South African Time (GMT+2 hours) on weekdays (except Fridays) if he is out on safar, the madrasa people will be able to advice when he can be contacted.
I have also personally met Moulana Umair at the khanqah of our shaykh, Moulana Abdul-Hamid(db), and found him to be a wonderful person with a very thorough knowledge of shafii fiqh.
