English term or phrase: happy birthday
It's jsut to write on a birthday card for a filipino friend
gaetan
Maligayang Kaarawan
Explanation:
maligayang = from word maligaya ("happy")
kaarawan = birthday ("nativity day")

The Tagalog version of the Happy Birthday song uses "Maligayang Bati"...but that's very confusing since it means "Happy Greeting"

Hope this helps in making your friend real happy on his/her special day...!
