Kamusta ka! My name is Cassandrafarrel. I am from Florida US and I am a Intermediate Filipino language student.
I am studying the Filipino language because.... my grandparents immigrated to the US with their children (including my mother.) I want to learn the language fluent so I may pass down the full culture to my children.

I applaud! Our (ethnical-cultural identity/) heritage is one of the most precious things we can and should give to our dearest ones.

"Kumusta ka!"
Means "How are you!"
It is also an expression to say "Hi!" for greeting on asking how persons' feeling.

Thank you! That is good to know. Kumusta ka and Selamat are (still) the only expressions in my vocabulary. (Selamat is easy to remember: it is used very often in Bahasa Indonesia when wishing a good day, goodbye, enjoy your meal, good night et cetera - selamat siang/jalan/makan/tidur.)

@Sometimes
"Kumusta ka?" in tagalog is
"How are you?"
Salamat means "thank you"
Ex.
Aperson: "Kumusta ka?" - How are you?
Bperson: " Mabuti" or "Mabuti naman po." - Im fine.
Aperson: " Kain tayo!" - lets eat.
Bperson: " Salamat, busog pa ako" Thank you, im still full.
 
For indonesian maybe it same in muslim arabic same as Salamu Alaykum but in short words as salamat or selamat.

@attrib Thank you for the Tagalog expessions, with their spelling, explanation and contextualization. I will put them to good use. Sooner or later there will be a new occasion (always unexpected and equally pleasant) to meet your fellow country Filippinos. Due to the Covid-emergency so far I have met only one foreigner, a few days ago. A German lady, married to an Italian who lives in Germany.
As for Salamat and Selamat. It did not occur to me, that it derives from Arabic. I do not know if its usage is specifically Muslim. One very Catholic prayer (Hail Mary) starts this way: Salam Maria...
(I double-checked the spelling on YouTube: youtu.be/i2ydwaIJo1U .)
