"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..
i have never met anyone as puzzling and amazing as you.. i am always thinking of you every night before i go to sleep..

*shivers down one's spine
