gam gok 感覺

There is the bastardised English word "feel" which is used in HK,

"好有feel" hou yau feel

feel having a similar meaning to gam go. Personally, I find the mixing of English with Cantonese grating on the ear, in the sense that the speaker is trying to be more than he/she is, along the lines of pretentious intellect.
