Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach shared what netizens called a “sana all” moment where she teased boyfriend Jeremy Jauncey for getting “kilig” even if he had no idea about this Filipino word.
On Instagram, the 31-year-old beauty queen posted a short clip of her filming her Scottish businessman beau while playfully telling him, “Yieee, you’re gonna get kilig” and “He’s kilig right now.”
“When he doesn’t know what KILIG means but he’s getting kilig anyway 🥰🥰🥰,” Pia wrote in the caption of her post on Friday.
She also tried to teach her non-Filipino followers the meaning of kilig by using Jeremy’s “feels” as example.
“For those of you who don’t know — KILIG is a very unique Filipino word that doesn’t have a direct translation to English. Pero ikaw, pano mo idedescribe ang kilig? Diba pareho naman ng nafefeel ni kuya?”
In March 2016, the Filipino term was among the new additions to the Oxford English Dictionary.
When used as an adjective, kilig refers to what a person feels when exhilarated by an exciting or romantic experience; thrilled, elated, gratified.
On the other hand, kilig is defined as exhilaration or elation caused by an exciting or romantic experience when used as a noun.
“Ayaw pa nya umamin e! 🥰🤭Hahahaha 😂 pero bakit mas kilig ako? Hahaha 🤣,” admitted Pia.
Netizens couldn’t help but feel the same thing for the couple as well.
Jeremy replied in the comment section: “😂😂😂 Now I know what kilig means 😂.”
In his own Instagram account, he also posted a throwback photo with Pia, counting the days until they will be together again.
Pia is currently in the country for work while Jeremy is in UK.
