Default What is 'kilig' in English?


My daughter asked me what's 'kilig' to the bones and I was unable to explain it in English.
I told her it's the feeling when you want to urgently piss and someone else is in the toilet and she didn't seem convinced.

"butterflies in the stomach" means being nervous

"kilig to the bones" is being very excited; it's titilation --- a feeling when your secret crush talks to you or when a girl is in the front row watching her favorite singer

I mean I was serious in saying that I was LOLing.

Hmn... that would be a great idea, though. Having a stern face while laughing.

In this society we consider people like you afflicted with color-blindedness.
And stop wrecking pinoypower's threads with off topic comments! I already got warned once for this!

ROFL!!! That is so funny. Somehow it doesn't seem like it would be an agreeable sensation though. I admit, I had to look titillation up in the dictionary.

I looked up kilig in the dictionary. Here is the entry:

kilig: n. tremble, shudder. kiligin v. to shake.

Some examples in English are:
1. "Seeing his crush gave him the shudders." In this case the shudders are from infatuation instead of fright.
2. "Seeing his crush made him tremble."
3. Litterally , "He is shaking me", but that doesn't make sense compared to the noun so I think a more accurate translated example is "He is tickling me."

Can anyone verify the accuracy of this?

I think titillation is a better definition.
