Couple of Asian Birds

Here's a few old photos of birds from various places in Asia. The first two I think I've got a bead on, the last two are really bad photos and I really have no idea. I'm tempted to delete, but thought I'd find out if anyone could ID them first.

1) Common Myna? Bangkok, Thailand in October

2) House Sparrow? Kathmandu, Nepal in October - Only asking on this one because in my guide there's a few old world sparrows that look similar, pretty sure it's a house.

3) Borneo in August. I believe along the trail up Mt. Kinabalu.

4) Another Bornean bird, can't see its face...thinking this might be a lost cause...

I can't be sure from that pic, but I'd be very surprised if it isn't an Ashy Drongo.
