You Wish Would Happen to You
You may have not noticed, but the role of kilig is huge in the lives of Filipinos. Kilig is what makes you rush home to catch your favorite teleserye’s latest slapfight. Kilig is what makes thousands of girls (and boys) spend money on merchandise and anything their favorite couple endorses. Kilig is what fills a 55,000-seater coliseum for a couple of song and dance numbers. Kilig is what gives you hope that your love interest will be the offspring of a rich businessman. Indeed, kilig makes the world go round–it never fails you, hurts you or leaves you. Kilig is LIFE.
The most accessible sources of said kilig are the lives of celebrities and the fictional characters they portray. Here are 8 moments, both fictional and real, that have made you melt to the floor. Just imagining them happening to you reduces you to blabbering piles of goo. Bakit ba? Libre naman umasa!
