Technically, we featured Budjette and Kajo two years ago when we had our Monsters reading theme. However, Budjette’s extremely hectic schedule prevented him from answering my interview questions during that period. And so, he’s back! The picture below was taken here in Singapore when Budjette attended a work-related conference a few years back.
