    It is actually short for "qué hay de nuevo?" > what's up / how's it going?

    pues aqui extrañandote > I'm here, missing you

    That's the idea,

    Hope it helps!

    I agree. Bugs Bunny says "What's up, doc?" all the time and in Spanish they translated it as "que hay de nuevo, viejo?"

    With regards to q and d, they mean que and de. You will also find others like pq (porque), tb (tambien), Cdo (cuando) that are more or less used by people that generally have been to university and have got used to writing very fast and very often!

    I've seen the young'uns now write k instead of que. Grrr awful!
