Hi, my name is Baki and I want to share you one Filipino word that does not have an equivalent in English.
This word is "kilig."
Kilig is the happiness of a first love.
The moment when your eyes and the eyes of a crush meet and you are rooted on the spot.
Kilig is the shiver down the spine that tickles and makes our day better and more meaningful.
It's getting gifts and compliments from people we admire.
Memories of kilig moments make us smile in public, and we don't care whether people think we're crazy because it's so good to feel this way.
Kilig is the stuff of life - we will not survive long without it.
In your card, please share your top kilig moment. Don't be shy :) If you have a word that also means kilig in your language, share it with me.
Leave a date on your card please. Happy Postcrossing and share the good vibes around the world!
