A little something about Mark Leo

Was over Jenny’s and Zach’s blog and I decided that I wanted to take this questionnaire as well and perhaps reveal a little bit something more about myself.

1. Four jobs/career aspirations I have had:

  • Process engineer (at Motorola during my engineering internship days)
  • R&D Engineer (at JVC designing video camcorders)
  • SAP Consultant (on the technical side of things which is rather boring for some people :P)
  • Freelance photographer (yay! I love to shoot weddings!)

* Sounds like I have very boring jobs beforehand and yes, they were boring

2. Four things I wish I had done earlier:

  • Learned photography earlier so I could have taken more photos during my days in the UK/Europe area
  • Took exams for my guitar classes
  • Taken a motorbike license
  • Studied economics and finance

3. Four places I have been (listing my favourite places):

  • Czech Republic
  • England
  • Australia
  • Phuket, Thailand

4. Four countries I would like to visit :

  • New York, USA
  • South Africa
  • Brazil
  • New Zealand

* If ever I get to go to these countries, I would have been to all of the continents in the world!

5. Four of my favorite dishes/snacks:

  • Chicken rice
  • Pizza (not the rubbish we get from Domino’s or Pizza Hut)
  • Carbonara Pasta
  • Roasted pork knuckles

6. Four of fav. desserts :

  • McDonald’s Banana pie
  • Banana chocolate smoothies
  • Peanut butter smoothies
  • Chocolate strawberry ice-cream

7. Four sites I visit daily:

  • Gmail
  • Facebook
  • Blogs (photographers and friends mostly)
  • TheStar.com.my

p.s. I actually visit a lot of sites, so much that I rely on Foxmarks for all my URL bookmarking needs. I have two accounts, one for work and for personal. Both have different sets of URLs πŸ˜€

8. Four software applications I cannot live without:

  • Firefox 3 (daily surfing and email)
  • Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop (mainly for my photo editing)
  • ¡Torrent (for all my *ahem* *ahem* needs)
  • Microsoft Excel (mainly for work and church stuff)

9. Four favourite drinks

  • Diet coke/Coke Light
  • Ice Lemon Tea
  • White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks
  • Czech beer

10. Four things you may not know about me:

  • I am a very shy person! (At work I am a totally different person though, confident enough to speak to a crowd of 100 and above at meetings with no problems but when meeting new people, a little shy sometimes)
  • I like to read Archie comics and Asterix comics (I got all of the Asterix comic collection and about 120+ Archie comic books. GIve me a buzz if you want to borrow some of them)
  • I still play the guitar, bass and a teeeny bit of drums (Although I sold my electric guitar to fund for my Nikon D200, I still have my acoustic guitar at home to play once in a while)
  • I am in need of a confidence boost most of the time (I am usually very worried and nervous before any of my photography assignment)

So for all of those who are reading this post, I am tagging you to blog about yourself as well. Don’t forget to link back to my site as well πŸ™‚

  • so you're in SAP? wonder if you know my fren, Eric Poh…

  • Ah, actually I am not working with SAP Malaysia but I work with SAP. Currently based in a consulting firm, mainly dealing with SAP related matters.

  • Cool, guess how this goes around. Drats… now have to think of this…

  • Hey, you forgot Antarctica πŸ™‚ it's another continent.

  • Hahaha, yeah someone mentioned that if you head down south from Australia, you can reach the northen tip of Antartica.
