quick note & a collection of inspirational quotes for January 2011

Hey friends, I know I was absent here again for so long. I haven’t visited your blog as well and I felt sorry about that. Things here just got even busier every day. The new assignments that we got made us all busy as a bee plus the fact that the number of staff in our new department was now reduced into only 5 staff including the driver. It’s a little bit tiring but I know there is always good thing waiting ahead for all of us. And of course, I am also hopeful for a more travel this year. I’d love to explore more the Cordillera Region and the Visayas Region where we were assigned. So, goodluck to that!

Anyway, it’s a little bit late but I want to share to you once again my collection of inspirational quotes for the month of January:
