Here is some Cantonese slang.  Some have migrated to Mandarin and English also.

There are many posts of Mandarin slang and even a few books,  Here is one I use ( click on Chinese to see English ):

厉害

My cousin was explaining it to me and couldn't really think of a good synonym besides "cool!"  so he said "if Kobe Bryant does a cool dunk, people would say "wow so 厉害!“ And if you're texting with someone, 555555 sounded out phonetically is a soun, used to portray a feeling of unhappiness or feeling down.

Sentence using cool and awesome I do not understand 100%.

  咱们都不忘用英文的表达来进行“酷毙了、帅呆了”。

  Zánmen dōu bù wàng yòng yīngwén de biǎodá lái jìnxíng “kù bìle, shuài dāile”.

  Let's not forget the expression in English for "cool, awesome."
