回憶殺 [huí yì shā] and 摸頭殺 [mō tóu shā]

回憶殺 [huí yì shā] n. Memory+kill. In the Japanese comic book series Naruto, killing scenes tend to begin with flashbacks of incidents from the past. As an Internet slang term, it refers to the emotional reminiscing about the past.

摸頭殺 [mō tóu shā] n. Gently caress and stroke the head+kill. Originating from the Japanese manga trope of a guy caressing a gloomy girl’s head to comfort her, this Internet slang term is now regarded as a favorable flirting or titillating technique (effective only when used by one’s love interest or idol).

三歲 [sān suì]

三歲 [sān suì] n. Three-year-old. This Internet slang term is often coupled with someone’s last name. It became popular first when used to describe Hong Kong actor Francis Ng aka Wu Zhenyu when he appeared with his son on the reality TV show Where Are We Going, Dad in 2014. Netizens dubbed him “Wu Three-Year-Old”, amused by his mischievous and childlike personality on the show as well as on Weibo. The meme has been widely used to describe many beloved celebrities.
