    Not too literal translation:
    I wish we had met as soon as you arrived. You're pretty, smart, I was so pleased to have made your acquaintance.

    Just one thing I noticed: I think 3alayji is a typo for 3alayki.

    Hi, I didn't want to open a new thread, so I am reviving this one.

    How would you write the same sentence in MSA, or in other words, can I use أول ما in Fusha, if not, what are possible alternatives in Fusha for أول ما ?

    Thanks

    I am not sure, but you could say:
    ليتنا التقينا فور مجيئك
