Nobody say 你好吗啊? When people shout to mountain who want to spread his voice very long distance away will extend last word. It's often seen in movies and commercials.

@JIStone I doubt you have seen の in China mainland not where a Japanese restaurant or something like that. Maybe you saw is a symbol like の or δ which used to replace second character in a repeated word like 高高兴兴

comment Tense and use of 了
@Cocowalla 了 in 你吃了吗 and 吃了 have the same mean that the eat action has completed. However, 吃饭了, like kazer took for instance in his answer, means let's eat.
