MANILA, Philippines – Hollywood socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton had a sumptuous dinner with boxing champion and Saranggani Rep. Manny Pacquiao and his wife, Jinkee, in Manila Tuesday night.

The Hollywood star also gamely posed with those who wished to have their pictures taken with her.

Earlier in the day, there was buzz in Congress that Hilton would be dropping by at the House of Representatives to visit the boxing champion.

Pacquiao, however, explained that Hilton could not make it because she has a pictorial for a product endorsement.

Hilton is currently in Manila to open a luxury store in SM Megamall. She will also help design a real estate property in Parañaque.

ABS-CBN earlier reported that Hilton will open the "Paris Hilton Beach Club" in Manila

Hilton will stay in the country until Thursday.
