It describes the way a butterfly flies through the air - I agree, a lovely word!

Lol. Pilipala in Chinese is an onomatopoeic word. It's used to describe the sound of firecrackers, the sound when a box of crystal balls fall onto the ground, or other sounds like that. XD

Its semi-repetition kind of reminds me of the filipino word for butterfly, paru-paro
