    Default what are some of the "friendly"'words of tagolo?(not sure if spelled right)

    I was wondering what are some "friendly" words to say in tagolo?
    as I said before I frequently went to a filipino household but unfortunately most the words I was "taught" were "bad" words to say,but I do know a few,good,solamat,(thank you,I think...) well sadly that's all that comes to mind what are a few "friendly" words to say to my filipino friends here in Tennessee that you would suggest?(preferably someone who knows the language not smart alec jokers)

    it is Tagalog
    Magandang Araw= Beautiful day! You can use this to greet someone in the morning and early afternoon....

    Magandang umaga = Good morning
    Magandang hapon = Good afternoon
    Magandang gabi = Good evening


    If you love a Filipino girl you can say to her

    Mahal kita = I love you

    But you can say "Mahal kita " to your mama,papa,siblings,neighbors and everybody


    If your friend invited you to eat dinner,breakfast or lunch or when your friend brings food for you and after you have eaten or tasted the food and you like it you can say...


    Ang sarap nito = This is delicious

    I would give the others the chance to comment

    Take care = Ingat or ingat ka

    thanks some of these do sound familiar,though the language itself is so fast here,I could hardly figure what was being said,I hope more will share,because it's kinda bugged me I know at least 10-20 filipino nice people yet I hardly know what to say,though they speak english,I was curious what words I could say in "their" language so as to be more "polite".

    It is a good sign Joe your eagerness to learn will help you to learn fast... one day you might surprise me you are already an American speaking Tagalog

    Kumusta ka? = how are you?
    Mabuti = im fine
    Anong pangalan mo? = what's your name?
    Saan ka pupunta? = where are you going?
    Pangit = ugly
    Maganda= beautiful

    Pangit is not really a friendly word but if a filipino offends you, you can call him pangit. JK.

    When I was stationed in Hawaii while serving in the Navy back in the 80's, I knew several people who were filipino. I noticed when they became very upset about something, they would shout out a bad word that ended in "nam." Never was sure exactly what it meant though.

    I recognize the words "Mahal kita" and "Maganda" from the lists below. Those are nice words.

    I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.

    Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    I feel kinda guilty because as an eager child I used the "bad"'words on my uncle,to be funny,he gave me the oddest look lol,the elderly woman who taught me,was named Christina,and boy did she like teaching those words,come to think of it I remember now that out of her phrases,Ecow means you,everything else was focused on us Americans being stinky lol!

    Pangit! NO, jk, u know u are not=).

    There is also Mabuhay! meaning

    “Come alive!”
    As an exclamation, the Tagalog word Mabuhay is used akin to the Japanese Banzai, the Spanish ¡Viva! or the French Vive!
    Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
    Long live the Philippines!
    Vive la France!
    Long Live France!
    Nippon Banzai!
    Long Live Japan!
    Viva Italia!
    Long Live Italy!
    Mabuhay is also used to welcome visitors arriving in the Philippines. Tourists frequently hear this word at the airport when a special Filipino welcome is prepared for them.
