You can buy staple ingredients like mee hoon, laksa leaf (which is called rau ram in Vietnamese), belacan, sambal oelek and things like that at any 99 Ranch. You might do a little bit better at a Thai market like Bangkok Market or Bangluck Market, a Vietnamese market like Vien Dong in Little Saigon, or go out to San Gabriel to Hawaii Supermarket where you'll find what you like.
I don't know a Malaysian market but in west LA there is an Indonesian market, Simpang Asia, (310)815-9075, 10433 National Blvd #2, Los Angeles, CA 90034. And check this thread for other Indonesian suggestions, and note in particular the posts from elmomonster and others about the Indonesian food court and other places in toward the east end of LA County (W Covina, Duarte, etc.) : http://www.chowhound.com/topics/479452
