Can you choose any bank in Malaysia for the fixed deposit?

Not sure, but think it must be a Malaysian based bank. I found Public Bank to be most helpful.

- Show proof of government approved pension funds of RM10,000
I can only tell you that we got our MM2H visa early this year and you needed to show either (a) pension funds of RM10K per month or (b) the fixed deposit route which meant showing offshore income (anywhere except Malaysia) of RM10K per month. We did Option (b) showing proof of income (NOT pension funds). This was accepted, then we had to do the Fixed Deposit(s).

It's not entirely straightforward for sure, and they mess about with the rules from time to time, so worth keeping close tabs on the government website and the my2home.info forum to keep up-to-date, if you are applying.
