Now, donít be misled by the size of the dot. It is tiny but extremely potent. If you start pouring water on it and wiping it with a piece of tissue paper, this is what your paintwork will end up like:
These tiny brown dots are extremely sticky when wet. They will smear the paintwork if wiped wet, as evident in the photo above. After a few incidents, I learnt my lesson and gently scrapped them off with a dry tissue paper before wetting the affected surface as a final touch up process. This method is much less painful.
I am not sure if the local birds have a change of diet or a new specie of bird has made Singapore their home. Should your car encounter the same predicament as mine, take heart that you are not alone.
