What To Do After Having A Bird Pooped On Your Head?


The last time I had a bird poop on me (on my clothes I think) was few years back while walking in the office compound with Mo-C. Nothing bad happened.

The logical answer is to wash your hair immediately. But what to do about buang sui? ‘ward off bad luck’

My mom and grandma consider having a bird poop on you is bad luck. I was asked to eat mee suah with double boiled eggs to expel any bad luck coming my way.



As much as I like eating eggs, two is too much. But I cleaned the plate nevertheless because I’ve been having some klutzy situation after the poop thingy.

Let’s hope this works!



My grandma told me the old way is to eat the rice that you exchange with a beggar.

p/s: I’m having a restless day and night due to the tooth extraction procedure coming this Friday. I try to think this as a positive thing. A once in a lifetime thingy. Haha

    Kitkat, yeah hehe

    Mizz Sharon, that is exactly what I told my mom n grannie. I’ve been through that door so many times and so are others but I’m the only one who got pooped on(yesterday). Surely must be a good thing. But the clumsy stuff I’ve been going through make me think otherwise le.

    i learned something new today. bad luck if a bird pooed on ur head! it happened to me before but can’t remember if got back luck after that or not! i see that as blessing from above. or maybe the bird is trying to tell you that your hair stinks and u need a wash badly??? 😆

    Errm… First thing first is to wipe/wash it away. Haha. After that, life goes on. 😛 Can buy 4D too!

  • Reply Che-Cheh November 19, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    Xin, wah wah what kind of bird poo so busuk one? haha 😛 You didn’t wash meh?

    Jam, once only? me like 3 or 4 times already. I think my first time kena bird poo is when I was in primary school during lunch. Thanks for the luck… I really need it. Eh how come nobody tell me their tooth extraction story other than Dawn?

    Jason, wiped already ma. I’m going to buy 4D this weekend. Hehe

    Bird pooped on the head I considered it good luck. Like my mom said “choong chi ter moh kum choon”. but that bowl of mee suah sure is delish! Go blog on the mee suah recipe la, i want to make it and eat! 🙂

    i once kena pooped when im dining out…dang suey wei..
    i faititly rushed to washroom to clean my hair then continued with my dinner =.=

  • Reply Che-Cheh November 20, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    Dawn, I’m going to try my luck buying 4D this Saturday. Hehe Cook mee suah very easy. 😛 I don’t follow measurement. Just simply taro! Maybe I’ll write a recipe for it later.

    Annant, but nothing bad happened after that right?

  • Reply iamthewitch November 20, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    Most importantly, did the trick work? 🙂 Eggs are good, so eating 2 won’t harm you. But it’s an interesting fact indeed. I heard that bird poo on the car actually meant good luck! On human it means the opposite eh..

  • Reply Benghui November 20, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    Auntie, what I do? Brownie many ticks.

  • Reply foongpc November 20, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    What? Really? Bird poo dropped on you is bad luck? Me always get bird’s poo on car only , never on me. Maybe once when I was small, I think but I could not remember.

    Just make sure you don’t walk under trees with birds lah, haha!

    What? Eat that mee sua with double eggs can ward off the bad luck? Wow! Looks delicious! And I like to eat double eggs! So yummy!! You better eat more like that! haha!

  • Reply Che-Cheh November 21, 2009 at 12:07 am

    iamthewitch, I’m not sure whether it works or not. But my clumsiness lasted till that night only. I’m all good the next day. Wohooo!

    Benghui, there are 2 ways that I usually deal with those horrible ticks. One is I use a product called Frontline. Apply this medicine (it’s poison ya) to your dog’s neck. Ask your daddy to get it from the vet and help you apply ya. You need to know the weight of your dog first because the medication is based on your dog’s weight.

    The second way is I use tissue/toilet paper to pick the ticks out of the body one by one. This second solution is quite geli but if you’re brave like me you can try it. After catching the ticks make sure you squeeze them hard or it won’t die.

    If Brownie have little ticks, then I suggest you try Frontline.

    Foongpc, Gonna buy 4D tomorrow. Haha I didn’t walk under the trees weh. All I did was lunged my body at a door and wah la I got poo-ed.

    I’m not sure. I just follow my grannie’s advice lo. Hehe
