The word in my language is "gigil". Not sure what it is in English, so I’ll just call it “squee” :)

    1. "Gigil" sounds more like /gee-gil/ in Filipino but you can also giggle when you feel "gigil" upon seeing an adorable cat.

  8. A rough translation of gigil could be 'super-extreme-cute-aggression' x]

  22. Looking at the definitions on the link you provided, I would translate 'Squee' to Nanggigigil, but that's just my opinion, and I'm not fluent in Tagalog, so I could be in error, just like you.

  23. Hello Yasmine! I'm a longtime reader and delighted to know we're kababayans! Finally, someone putting down on paper how I feel about cats--glad I'm not the only one who's suffering from "gigil"!

  24. Gigil! YES! Someone finally understands. That feeling of "I'M GOING TO SQUISH YOU UNTIL YOUR FATNESS AND FURRINESS OOZES LIKE GOO OUT OF MY FINGERS!!"

    *eye twitch*

    Ahem. Sorry for the all-caps.

  25. I think "gigil" is the same as being giddy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gigil is like you couldn't control yourself. I didn't know you were Filipino. *high five* Mahilig din ako sa pusa. (I'm also into cats)
