What is your favorite word in Swahili?

Hello guys! I know the Swahili course is only 5 days old, but since 5,000 people have started learning it, I think there would be plenty of users who could answer this question: What is your favorite word in Swahili, and why?

I only did the first 10 skills, but I think that "pilipili hoho" sounds funny :)

I still think it's really funny the verb for "to sleep" is "kulala". "lala" sounds like sleeping. However as of now, Silali (I am not sleeping). Swahili is just so fun, and interesting to pronounce and build sentences. Even though I think verbs are the hardest part of Swahili, the verbs are also the most fun.

"Sili" it means "I don't eat/I'm not eating"

My favorite Swahili word is probably furaha—Joy or happiness. Just saying it makes me happy. But I also love Kulala—to sleep
