sige ha


Explanation:
If you go for the literal (read: formal register), you'd say 'kasiya-siya and ating pagkikita' (literally: our meeting was a happy one) but you'd be laughed out from the room. No one speaks like that.

Tagalog speakers would rather say (in question form):

magkikita tayo muli ha?! (we'll see each other again?)

or a very informal (and more frequent):
sige ha! (a sort of general all-purpose expression of leavetaking that incorporates 'bye', 'see you again', 'it was nice meeting you')
