"I'm having the most wonderful time here in the Philippines."

This was how Paris Hilton greeted the local press during the media junket prepared for her by Century Properties earlier today, August 17, at The Peninsula Manila in Makati City.

The Hollywood celebrity, who arrived in Manila last Sunday night, August 14, further said, "Everyone has been so welcoming and wonderful. And you know what, I'm having the most fantastic time."

The hotel heiress is on a five-day visit in the country for her collaboration with the local real estate company. She will help with the design of Azure Urban Resort Residence's Beach Club located in the south of Metro Manila.

According to Paris, the country's beaches attracted her to accept the project and visit the Philippines.

She stated, "I was excited about going to the Philippines because the beaches here are so incredible.

"And that's how excited I was with this idea, it was like, how cool is it in the middle of the city to have a man-made beach that is so beautiful.

"It is so breathtaking that I wanna live there. If I would live in the Philippines, I would definitely live in Azure."

Since Paris has been all over the world, she said that her contribution to the design of the Beach Club will be inspired by the world's famous beaches she already visited.

She related, "I travel around the world so I'm very inspired from everywhere I've been.

"I've been to the most beautiful resorts and hotels and beach clubs all over the world.

"So, when people go to the Beach Club of Azure, they'll already know that it's designed by me—it's gonnna be very Paris, sexy, and beautiful.

"It's gonna be the best beach club."

PROUD MOMENTS. The 30-year-old American socialite-model also mentioned her developing interest in real estate, where her great grandfather Conrad Hilton is widely known as the founder of Hilton Hotels.

"Real estate is something that I really wanted to give all my time. That's why this project is so important to me," she stated.
