"Chi Le Mei" used to be a popular greeting some 20-30 years ago. We don't say it often nowadays.  Ho ...

I thought it was chi fan le ma, and answered chi le
I'm a little bit wrong and your a little bit right.

It has the same meaning as Chi Le Mei.  People from different places speak a little differently.

Chi Fan Le Ma seem to be spoken more in the south while Chi Le Mei more in the north, but both are standard putonghua (mandarin) and are understandable in all places in China.
