    I hear "Kamusta" is now used today, "Kumusta" is old already...The only thing I hate bout Tagalog is that it changes overtime, out with the old in with the new. I am more confused than you are.

    It comes from the Spanish greeting ¿Cómo está? so I guess Kumusta is the proper one, but Kamusta is widely used in the Greater Manila Area. Both are correct, it all depends on which region you come from. :)
