KILIG

 
 
kilig
to tremble, shudder
 
 
kilig
giddiness
 
 
kinikilig
feeling giddy

kiligin
to be tickled pink

When a young Filipina gets the opportunity to see her favorite movie star in the flesh, she experiences kilig.

Kinilig ako nang makita ko ang crush ko.
I shuddered in delight when I saw my crush.

Sino bang hindi kikiligin kung makita si Brad Pitt?
Who wouldn’t be tickled pink upon laying eyes on Brad Pitt?
