"Hello"/ "Hallo"

The same greeting is used in Malay, whether in phone or face-to-face interactions. The difference in spelling may just reflect an attempt to spell this universal greeting in Malay; the pronunciation is the same.

Same pronounciation but with a slight variation in spelling, i.e. with a single letter 'l'. Hope it helps :)
