here in the philippines, we say "magandang hapon" in filipino... but in ilocano, my dialect, we say "naimbag nga malem". i know... this is quite similar to my previous post but i really love learning different languages....

In mandarin, we say 'xia wu hao', which means Good afternoon. It is written as follows--???. I am glad that you are fond of learning languages. Keep on.

Hello dolce_vita78, I am from the philippines also and yes we say good afternoon or magandang hapon in Tagalog. I am from Manila but have friends in Pampanga there they say it: "Mayap Agat Panapon!" :-)

hehehehe.. am a filipino too. so i sometimes say magandang hapon.. that's when i used to have a filipino class in the afternoon when i was in high school, but guess i never have spoken that for years now. in my language, that's maayong hapon, am a cebuana! and that's how we say good afternoon in our own dialect.:) but am quite used to speaking it as good afternoon, cause am more fond of using the english language in the office!hehehe

We also say "magandang hapon" or simply "good afternoon", in Philippines tagalog and english were frequently used. It's a pleasant greetings to a person whom we visit or who we tried to get in touch with.
