Cultural Insight

Camille: Another famous greeting you might hear in the Philippines is Mabuhay! This literally means "Live!" but is used to mean "Welcome!". It is used in formal situations like when welcoming an audience during events or when welcoming people into the country, but not necessarily when welcoming guests to your home.
