Paris Hilton brings the party to the Philippines. The real estate heiress opened Paris Beach Club in Manila - a three-story beach resort which features a man-made beach and a wave pool. At a press conference, Hilton said her first venture into real estate development was a dream come true. SOUNDBITE: Paris Hilton, socialite, saying (English): "Ever since I was a little girl I really admired my great grandfather and grandfather for the Hilton Hotel empire that they created, and I always had such incredible mentors, looking up to these men who had done so much in the real estate world, so I always really admire them and wanted to follow in their footsteps, and this is my first step towards it." Hilton also has a growing fashion empire and attributed her success to hard work. SOUNDBITE: Paris Hilton, socialite, saying (English): "I think it's all about really believing in yourself and not listening to others who try to pull you down, and about working hard and having a big heart, and really putting your all into everything, and I feel like when you do good things in life as well, that will come back and give you good karma." The beach club will be one of the main amenities for a residential resort being built by a local development firm.
