By NICK GIONGCO — Hotel heiress and socialite Paris Hilton is having the time of her life so far in Manila.

Hilton, who is in the country in time for the opening of her boutique in various locations, even raved about the dinner cum party hosted by Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao after the fighting congressman finished his work at Batasang Pambansa.

"I am loving the Philippines! Having the best time! Went to dinner with my friends Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao tonight. They had a dinner party for me and introduced me to all their lovely friends," the 30-year-old Hilton said in her twitter account.

"We all had so much fun talking and laughing . The people in the Philippines are so warm, welcoming, genuine and sweet. The Pacquiaos are such a beautiful and amazing couple! Manny is such an incredible boxer and great friend. Jinkee looked so stunning tonight, she had the hottest Herve Leger dress on. Such a memorable evening! I feel lucky to have such special people in my life. Love Paris xoxo," she wrote.

Meanwhile, Jinkee posted on her Twitter account on Wednesday morning, “I love Paris. She's so nice!!!wat an awesome evening!!!” accompanied with a photo of her, Manny and Paris.

“Thank u for visiting the Philippines...we love u...,” she added.

Pacquiao's adviser Mike Koncz said the friendship between the Pacquiaos and Hilton blossomed last May shortly after Pacquiao's win over Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

During the post-fight press conference, Hilton appeared at the question and answer joined by her sister Nikki and chatted with Pacquiao and Jinkee.

Shortly after the event, Hilton, the great granddaughter of hotel mogul Conrad Hilton, tweeted her experience and expressed her excitement over the prospects of visiting the Philippines.

Koncz said the dinner was "a friendly one...and Jinkee has long been a fan of Paris Hilton."
