Maqana actually DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING in Spanish. This non-word has become colloquial text messaging language due to a phone error. If you send someone the word mañana via text the n with the tilde does not always translate sometimes defaulting to the letter q.

How I discovered this: A dear, native-Spanish-speaking friend of mine would always text me "hasta maqana" or "voy a ir maqana" ... she always uses Monterrey regional slang;I figured that was the case with "maqana"...so, when I was speaking with her in Spanish, I tried to drop "maqana" mid-sentence to be cool, and she said "¿Mande? ¿Que es maqana?" I said, "YOU TELL ME! You say it all the time."

Finally, after a little Science-Fair-style hypothesizing we came to this conclusion:

I have a Motorola Droid on Verizon and my friend has an AT&T iPhone. When my friend with the iPhone sends me the word "mañana" it comes through on my phone as "maqana".

Book became slang for cool in English as that is the first word that T9 suggests when you key in the word cool... - afowen, FEB 11, 2011

Agree with jeezzle.

And 'muah' is a kiss sound. El sonido de un beso.

maqana is an alternate for mañana. mua = the sound of a kiss as noted above.

Where do they use "maquana" / "macana" ("maqana" should definately be wrong)? - samdie, NOV 12, 2010
