1. Hungry. Usually slightly hungry or simply wishing to give the impression of being slightly hungry. Derived from nip as in a small bite.

2. A little cold. The feeling of being cold but usually just a small amount mostly from a breeze and a lack of a jacket or coat. Thus not usually used to describe wearing multiple layers and still being a little cold. Derived from nippy.

A derivation of the derogatory term, "nip", to describe Japanese; originally coined by Americans of European descent. Now a term casually thrown around amongst Asians only who wish to disempower any attempted insults, as blacks did with 'nigga'
