Welcome the home of engraver Mark Choon
Well as you know, my name is Mark. Welcome to this little niche on the internet where I blog about glass engraving as well as other matters that capture my attention.
A little info about me.
I am a computer engineering graduate and have been in the IT industry for a few years. Right now I am freelancing, specialising in creating Web applications and customizing OsCommerce plugins for eCommerce websites. Of course, on top of this, I am into glass engraving.
So do let me know if you require any of my services, either in web apps or just creating a very special gift for your friends or loved ones.
Thank you for dropping by!
