MabuHej is a combination of words from two languages worlds apart.
“Mabuhay” is a Tagalog word which means “long live.”
“Hej” (pronounced “hey”) on the other hand, is the Swedish word which means, “Hello”.
Mabuhej! therefore means, Long live and Hello!
Incidentally, beauty contestants from the Philippines has this distinct inflection when they pronounce “Mabuhay” as a greet word in their introductory presentation making it sound more like “Mabuheeeey!”
