Haba is the root with core meaning long...
 
MA-haba makes it an adjective.
 
Adjectives get closely linked to the noun with -ng. We don't let the adjectives "dangle" away from the noun.
 
Mahabang buhay. Long life.

Yes the same meaning, "Lifetime or forever" however there are some rules why HABAMBUHAY is correct.
 
PANG is used preceding the words that end with a letter g, h, k, m, n, ng, w, or y.
 
PAN is used preceding the words that end with a letter d, l, r, s, or t.
 
PAM is used preceding the words that end with a letter b or d.

WEll...Totoo...in Tagalog Depende PALAGI...Kawili wili....yes...my foreign ear kind of default to long life...
 
I do hear Eternal Life...but that is special kind of blessing...for example
 
Sa tingin ko, ang pagmamahal sa buhay ang susi sa habambuhay na pagkabata.
 
To my thinking...a love of life is the key to ETERNAL youth.
 
I might offer a toast of Eternal Life to my Catholic friends but I would most likely hesitate to someone I don't know well in case their beliefs is inconsistent. ETERNAL is big statement...not everyone boarding that jeepney. Pero super sweet for love expressions.
 
Long Life...I'll let others say it...

Habang buhay - while you are still living
Habambuhay - lifetime ; forever
