Good morningMaayong buntag. (Mah-ah-yong buhn-tag.)
Good noonMaayong udto. (Mah-ah-yong ud-toh.)
Good afternoonMaayong hapon. (Mah-ah-yong hah-puhn.)
Good eveningMaayong gabii. (Mah-ah-yong gah-bih-eh.)
Hi – translated also as "Hi". Other informal or personal terms in bisaya equivalent to "Hi" are "Ooh!", "Hooh!", "Oy!".
