You might want to include Thailand in your travels. Thailand is cheaper than Singapore and New Zealand for starters.
You intend to bite off quite a big bite of "travel" for a first timer!
I would start with Thailand. From there you can either take land transportation or fly to nearby Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia.
Most of the plane tickets you buy in Thailand are reasonably priced. Many of the travel agencies have a "shopping list" of airfares that you can use to compare with other offers.
From Thailand you can also fly to Singapore or fly there from Penang or Kalua Lumpur if you still want to. Or you can go overland by bus too!
I would break the travel up into sections. Asia section, Africa section, and India/Nepal section. Australia and New Zealand as a separate section since Australia is so big!
A lot depends on how much you have or want to spend per night for your lodging, transportation, and entertainment, etc. PLAN YOUR DAILY BUDGET AND THEN ADD ANOTHER 25 TO 30% FOR EMERGENCIES OR SUDDEN WHIMS!
Make sure you read up on these places before you go. Other sources of information can be found on the Lonely Planet (Thorn Tree Forum) www.lonelyplanet.com or Travellerspoint www.travellerspoint.com. Also, the TripAdvisor www.tripadvisor.com and the AOL Travel boards (www.aol.com/travel/forums.)
