Question Drilling laminate?

Anyone got any good tips?

Need to drill a two 3-4mm holes through thin (7mm) laminate with countersink.

I'm a DIY biff, so imagine me drilling it on my knee in the living room with an 800w drill and having to warn me about not drilling into my leg, and you'll have about the right level of advice i'm looking for...

Do I drill sink first, what bit do i use (special one for wood sinks?) do i do hole first... fast speed or slow? Masking tape to stop slip... anything like that... pile it on.
