Hello! I’m B.J. Seow and welcome to Beverlogue, a collection of my musings about life as a mum, wife, optimist and everything in between. I celebrate the joys of motherhood, a fun and relaxing travel, good food and good wine. Yes, wine. To keep my sanity intact at the end of the day. 🙂
I’m a Malaysian mother to two beautiful girls. Since 2010, I’ve been living in Austria and it has changed me as a whole. Believe me, it REALLY did. Imagine, expecting a baby in a country whose language you don’t speak (back then) and having to drive on the opposite side of the Autobahn in snowy conditions. Let’s not forget my amazing husband; who was at times away on business trips and our families are either 9,463km across the ocean or 257km by road. So you see, it wasn’t really a walk in the park. Or as I would say it, running down the Austrian alps with your arms streched-out like ‘The Sound of Music’.
Therefore, I was constantly on the internet for everything, from tips and tricks to doubts and queries in raising kids. And for years I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a blog to jot down my experiences as a way of getting things out of my chest. That was how Beverlogue came about, as a creative outlet to share my life as a mother in a foreign land, raising bilingual kids, easy DIYs, simple recipes, favourite brands/things, travel hacks, including tips and inspiration.
Then, came COVID-19. We couldn’t travel like we used to. The main reason for our yearly vacations to Malaysia was to visit families, but it was also a way to keep my children abreast of Malaysian cultures, traditions, celebrations, languages, cuisines, and etc. That’s when I decided, to write a children’s picture book (or books in the future) with elements of Malaysia in it.
I hope you’ll stick around as I would be sharing my journey publishing my first children’s book. And by signing up to the newsletter, you’ll receive updates and exclusive offers directly in your inbox!
