Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'll add a thought to the mix: Some Gnu/Linux provide a CD/DVD for the asking. You just need to go to the web site and fill out the proper information then presto you may receive a copy via snail mail if the local laws permit.
Another source would be to locate a local user group (LUG) from Linux User Groups which is a world list. OP could check out a local University Bookstore or Student Affairs for possible acquisition of a valid copy. Some professional societies provide Gnu/Linux that may suit your needs.
Even magazines at times provide a Disk with the mag/rag.
um since you have a slow internet speed...
another sugestion is to see if you have a LUG support group around Malasia.
If so go to one of them and see all the linux OS in action and test drive them while you are there,
see if folks have a spare ISO disk you can have or you can try to locate a source to use a higher speed download.
I'd go to a LUG if one was around where I live
but it seems that the closest ones
are either in PA or mid-state NY for me
meh but enough about me
