2Hello Impeople - are you arriving (Philippines) by boat? If so , perhaps do some backtracking by the same route when you are ready to start for Vietnam (through Malaysia and Indonesia, Thailand etc?)
as above poster mentions the Zamboanga ferry to Sandakan - Aleson Shipping - easy run - is the most likely option available at this time
...or the highly unlikely chance of meeting a yachtie in Tombobo Bay, Negros that is willing to take on a companion - (located past Malatapay and Zamboangita, Negros near Dumaguete) some amazing people land up there! (and Negros is a great place to explore or even stay a year or two)
...it was common 10 years ago to go Gen San, Mindanao to Bitung, Sulawasi but no longer done now
..kind of old news, but was pretty cool as I've gone by boat from Manila to Ambon and Jayapura - just got to have a lot of patience
... getting commercial freighters to take you on for international travel is most unlikely
be sure to visit Palawan while you are in the Philippines !

3Vietnam overland to malaysia or singapore via cambodia/Laos/thailand. buses/trains
then ferry to lndonesia. there is ferry from singapore to batam islands
then a ferry from the batam islands down to Jakarta.
or a ferry from melaka to sumatra then overland by bus ferry bus to Jakarta.
then a Pelni ferry from Jakarta to Pontianak in Kalimantan.
there are also Pelni ferry lines boats going from Cirebon and semarang and surabaya
then a bus from pontianak to Kuching sarawak.
then bus over land via brunel to Sandakan. Kuching/Miri/BSB/Kota kinabalu/Sandakan.
then a ferry to Zamboanga philippines.
so thats Vitenam/cambodia/thailand/malaysia/singapore/lndonesia/malaysia/brunel/malaysia

7Impeople - you will not have to return by the same road but might have to do the Zambo to Samdakan hop by ferry to get back into Malaysia with a minimal amount of hassle (its only a day trip and pretty easy)
that might be the best option and certainly the easiest - once you are back in Malaysia- Indonesia there are many return route possibilities by land and sea
depending upon how much travel time you have - there are endless sailing opportunities in Indonesia - If you enjoy getting off the tourist trail you could go for years - really - years - and you might even get on board vessels that use sails - how cool !
