1. noun. It is the sudden feeling of an inexplicable joy one gets when something romantic or idealistic occurs.
When kilig, one may experience the following:
*butterflies in one's stomach
*shivers down one's spine
*irrepressible noises from one's mouth
*an inner conflict between hope of something wished for and reality
Kilig may also be defined as that mountain top, floating, on cloud nine, invincible, i-could-keep-smiling, heart aching goodness and feeling which overpowers the mind's ability to think straight, act straight, breathe properly and articulate thoughts into a single comprehensible sentence.
KILIGS much?? ^_^
"kilig" is an expression, reaction, or feeling that makes someone blush after an event... something that makes girls squirm on the inside as if saying "OMG! that is sooo sweet!" without being too obvious about it. it's that romantic factor when watching chick flicks and some cheesy dialogue literally takes someone's breath away.
OR that 'tingly' and 'excited' feeling you feel, especially when watching romantic films.
i don't think there's an English word or phrase for it. even Butterfly Stomach doesn't do justice to "kilig".
Boy: I have fancied you for 2 years now but i couldnt do anything about it because you only see me as a friend..
