Err, sis strawberry. You're not supposed to say that and neither are your friends
And you shouldn't say kameena either. None of those words are slang-mind you
I thought she was saying "cutee" as in like "cutie pie"

These are some I hear from many pakistanis:
cuta or cutee, kameena, yaar
Don't know what they mean but I know they're slang
Yaar is not slang. It is originally a farsi word, and means friends or lover or beloved. It has been cheapened by Urdu and Hindi writers and speakers and now constitites part of a thoroughly disgusting abuse "Maan ka . . . ." "Behan ka . . . ."
Kutta and Kuttee refer to male and female canines. In themselves they aren't slang either, but are used as terms of abuse [or converse endearment among friends] as in "Ayub kutta haye haye" "Down with the dog Ayub"was Pakistans favorite street slogan in the late 60s.
On the other hand a friend may say to another "Bohat kuttay ho yaar tum" meaning "You'ne one hell of a dog, man"
