adjective · Kankana-ey

Taraki is a term used often describing someone or something awesome, and exceeds the definition of just "cool".

A reference to an Igorot who has all the traits that one would desire in a romantic or sexual partner, highly intelligent, and with a great personality -- a complete package.

In Ilokano, Iloco or Iluko, "taraki" means someone who is good-looking or having a pleasing or attractive appearance.
