Flower Power: The Right Way To Get Blessings From Hindu Gods

Generations | 04:25 mins

Have you ever wondered if there’s a cheat sheet for how to ‘huat’ in life with blessings from the gods? 🌺

From making flower garlands for ministers like Lee Hsien Loong to offerings for Hindu gods, Jothi Store & Flower Shop has been the go-to for flower garlands in Singapore at the heart of Little India for almost 60 years. What started out as a small 5-foot sidewalk shop has now developed to become a 5-storey departmental store in the heart of Little India.

We asked Uncle Murugaia, the first generation owner of Jothi Store & Flower Shop, for some quick tips on the gods’ favourite flowers in this video – you’re welcome! 😉 While the 90-year-old owner is no longer making flower garlands, you can still catch him cashiering on your lucky day!
