Is Malaysian and Indonesian similar enough to understand each other’s language ?

Indonesian is based on Malay, so I would assume so
For better answers, post this question in "society&culture-->languages"

Malay: saya panas dan letih Indonesian saya panas dan lelah
M: saya nak makan ikan and I: saya ingin makan ikan
Google translate said they are very close. First I put in "I am hot and tired", then "I want to eat fish".
maybe a polyglot will appear and give a better answer, but until then, I did my best!!
but sometimes Google translate is POOR!! Especially in marginal languages (where few will use and correct them)
