Go Flower Power.

Or at least that's what Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the prime minister wants. She said Local authorities and those in the flower business need to play a bigger role in instilling a love for flowers and garden.

“Local authorities and other related agencies should come up with programmes and activities to promote an interest among the public to seek business opportunities in the field,” she said during the launch of the Putrajaya Flower and Garden Fiesta 2009 (Floria 09) here, according to media reports.

This is the second time Putrajaya Corporation is organising the biennial event themed “A Celebration of Colours”. It will be held until Aug 10.

The nine-day fiesta boasts of over 400,000 exhibits including flowers and vegetables. So, go on there and you may find yourself ideas for business ventures.
