Malaysia's central bank kept its key interest rate unchanged at 3.25 percent on Thursday, as expected, saying inflation is only expected to trend higher after the first quarter of 2015.
The announcement came after markets closed for the day.
Thai SET index  eased 0.6 percent to 1,553.33, the lowest close since Jan. 21. Large caps going ex-dividend led the losers, including shares of Bangchak Petroleum    and  Electricity Generating .
