The last two times I got mine in the Bangkok consulate with no problems, it's worth paying a bit extra to get same day service just drop it off in the morning and pick it up in the afternoon. The last time was 2 years ago and I haven't heard that anything has changed. I hear KL and Singapore are also good.
It's valid for 3 months, I'm not sure what the options are for extension.

“Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.” ― Ajahn Chah
I've heard that in KL they ask for a recommendation letter from Malaysian buddhist center (in addition to a sponsorship letter from Myanmar monastery). If you can acquire it, then it's straightforward, if not Bangkok is a better choice. I think prices increased a couple of years ago, but not significantly.
