    for filipinos, the word lupet could mean "cruel;rude;brutal"

    example:
    "ang lupet mo naman sa bata!" [you're so cruel to that child!]
    "wala kang kasing lupet sa mga estudyante mo!] [no one is more rude to the students than you]

    but just as maan said, sometimes it is also an expression of someone's extra ordinary ability to do something.

    "wala kang kasing lupet sumayaw!" [you're so good in dancing!]

    sometimes, you can only say, "lupet!" which means, "excellent!"

    its actually hard to explain... but for me it means "to a person who is so good" most probably to a particular thing.. but that my personal meaning to it... : )
