  • torpe
  • kulit
  • gunita

Kilig - shudder/chill; romantic thrill
Tambay - bum(?)
Torpe - gutless(?)
Kulit - (v) to annoy; (adj) annoying
Gunita - (v) remember or commemorate; (n) memory

Hehe. Hula lang.

Somehow, the English does not do justice to what kilig or torpe means to us!

I - I was thinking of tambay as a verb, but that's good translation, too! Pwede siguro hang out, pero hindi pala verb yun!

Thanks Mak! :D
