'Long time no see" comes from "好久不见". It might have once been considered Chinglish, but it's part of the English language now. It's a lot quicker to say than "I haven't seen you for a long time".

"I've didn't" makes no sense at all. You would use, "I haven't seen you for a long time." "Long time no see" comes from pidgin English, and interestingly the earliest example we have is not from a Chinese speaker, but from a Native American speaker. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_time_no_see
