    Some of the Tagalog words which have no direct translation in English are mostly verbs like Kilig which means tickled pink by a crush and Lambing which is seeking favor in a playful manner. Tampo is the word to use when you are slightly jilted and Gigil is being too eager or avid.

Pagpag is cleansing a blanket or a sheet of crumbs. Lihi or Paglilihi is the caprice of a pregnant woman to ask favors from people.
