Why not go for:

'What a terribly pleasant afternoon don't you think? Awfully clement for the time of year.'

Something a little more sophisticated...

That aside, in Colombia people say:

¿Q'hubo? (from ¿Qué hubo, pronounced CUE-bo) and ¿Qué más? Not sure about the girl bit.

Yes, I would have said, ¿Qué tal,( chica)?

Well, do you prefer your slang the ghetto version ¿Qué es la que hay gata?, proper version ¿Qué tal chica?, or maybe even a friendly insult version ¿Qué onda mensa?

Any of those could work... (in Spanish, its really not common nor necessary to specify girl at the end)

Please don't say, ¿Qué tal, mensa? It means, what's up stupid. ¿Qué onda chica/amiga? is a much nicer way to say what's up. smile

  • Is that not specifically Mexican? If's defo specific to certain geographies... - afowen Apr 8, 2011 flag
  • As I said, "Friendly Insult Version"... if you're latino or hang with many, there are soooo many words that most would consider rude/offensive, but with friends it's funny and a joke. =) - DJ_Huero Apr 8, 2011 flag
  • As I've said many a time, in Locomia it's totally normal to call people marica and huebon, all the time... - afowen Apr 8, 2011 flag

  • @DJ Huero and Afowen, this is a girl we are talking about, girls tend not to be as crude as guys when addressing each other; now, when girls are talking ABOUT guys, thats a different story ;) - AngelinaG Apr 8, 2011 flag

In mexican slang, ¿Qué onda?

  • also common among central americans that live here in the US, due to high influence of Mexican dialect - AngelinaG Apr 8, 2011 flag
