Chasing Paris
Posted on

Pagoda. That’s how I felt today, and now at 12 midnight, I’m just glad to be home in my sweats and socks.
I was supposed to have a list of things to do today but all that changed because Paris Hilton is in town.
A press conference was scheduled at the Peninsula Manila’s Conservatory at 4 PM, with media registration at 3:30 PM.
On the way to the Pen, I was craving for Häagen-Dazs coffee ice cream. I tweeted around to find out if the Peninsula served Häagen-Dazs, and was told they didn’t. Luckily when I got there, a Häagen-Dazs launch had just ended at Salon de Ning!
Spotted: Häagen-Dazs’ new endorser, Georgina Wilson

I made pakapal and asked the PRs if there was any ice cream left. They had tons, but no coffee. So I had two of these strawberry cups (my 2nd favorite). I could not believe my luck. Now I can taste and eat my ice cream.

After eating the ice cream I thought I saw Paris Hilton walking towards the Conservatory.

Oops! It’s Bianca Valerio! #award

Upstairs I saw my cousin Candy Dizon, who is blooming like Mich Dulce! #payat

See, it’s supposed to start at 4.

Around 4:30 we were informed that Paris would come down in another 30 minutes, so we had to kill some time.
RJ Ledesma was lucky he brought his Mac and could get some work done.

I was still hungry so I went to the buffet table which was wiped out. I was lucky to grab these pineapple slices and thought, why do hotels have the monopoly on perfect fruits?

More waiting. Take a look at the photographers waiting for Godot.

Finally, Paris arrived at 5:40 PM with a ton of entourage. I have never seen or heard the sound of so many cameras clicking in the Philippines, simply because we have no celebrity like this in Manila.
Watch Paris work it.

She sat in between Robbie (L) and Jigger Antonio of Century Properties. She looks exactly like her photos and she looks like a live Barbie doll with Barbie hair.

It was difficult to take pictures because the place was packed

Paris arrived on Sunday night and seeing from their video presentation, she had a full agenda shooting a commercial and ad campaign for Azure Urban Resort Residences and meeting with Century Properties to design the resort.

Last night she had dinner with Vicki Belo and Manny Pacquiao.
Today she had a press conference and tonight, a party in her honor at the Peninsula.
Tomorrow she will have a meet and greet at SM Megamall the Paris Hilton bag store at the SM Megamall Atrium before leaving the country

The cheesy part was when Paris’ supposedly “number one fan” was called to the stage. Some of us wondered how one gets the official title “number one fan”.
Apparently the girl Isha and Paris communicate on Twitter and was meeting here for the first time.
To be fair Paris was really sweet to her. They swapped presents.

The cheesiest part was when the Facebook promo winners were called to the stage for a meet and greet.

That was my cue to exit, but not before taking one last picture of Paris with the Antonio family.

Was able to catch Paris leaving the press conference with a ton of entourage.

Left the Pen and had dinner with Harold at Sugi. We were starving.

Hey you!
it was such a laugh trip when you asked me to pretend I was Paris – from behind – hahaha!!!

anything for a cheap thrill!

I was on my way out coming from hosting the Haagen Dasz event and there you were every so ready to pull the prank for the love of blonde comedy 😉

Kahit fake na blonde, bonggels pa rin!

“GUESTS and customers at the Pen lobby were treated to a verbal fireworks Wednesday night between actress Annabelle Rama and Century Properties managing director Robbie Antonio that even the orchestra had to stop playing as the two duked it out in front of startled diners.Century Properties, for those born yesterday, is the property development group that brought reality TV star Paris Hilton to Manila to help create marketing buzz for its Sucat project.According to an eyewitness, Rama apparently took offense at how Antonio and his staff had handled her actress daughter Ruffa Gutierrez and other local stars at a just-concluded… Read more »

She looks amazing in the video. Para talagang live Barbie doll! And she really knows how to work it in front of the camera! Then again, she’s constantly in the spotlight.

“Azure” is not really a smart name for a condo.  
Taxi driver: Saan po tayo ma’am?
Madam: Sa Azure.
TD: Ha?
M: Azhure.  
TD: Azur?  Puerto Asur ho Ma’am? Naku, 500 po’ ang flagdown kung Puerto Asur.
M: Hindi nga eh.  Azzhure.  Doon malapit sa Molobeysia.

Wow andaming photos, may video pa nga! The Antonio brothers are cutesy na rin, but afraid ako kay Jigger, he looks katakot. Paris rocks!

Paris looks really pretty with perfectly set hair. I don’t really like her but I think I’ll be star struck if I meet her. And I love her in the interview with her normal manner of speaking, not the slow drawl in her reality shows. She doesn’t seem like an airhead at all, which was my impression of her. Syet I’m becoming a fan. Lol!

I guess, Isha is lucky to be called the number one fan. Btw, showed a photo of Paris Hilton to my daughter today and made hubby ask her who is it, she said “Paris” in her cute 2 yo voice. When I showed Heidi Montag’s photo, that’s when she said “Barbie”. Hahaha!

This entry is loaded! Love it <3

Georgina Wilson's dress is pretty and the skirt resembles an upside down ice cream cone.

I also love Bianca Valerio's outfit. Everything. From the hair, skirt, belt, animal print top, accesories, everything.

I'm not a fan of Paris Hilton but she sure is pretty. 🙂

I do love Paris. Kasi kahit na nauso siya nung nauso yung white trash sa Hollywood, hindi white trash si Paris. No matter what she does, she’s still a Hilton. And whenever we do interviews with her for OK! magazine, she’s coherent and smart. She has this understanding of herself as a brand. Can’t say the same for a lot of ” respectable” Hollywood stars!

I admire Paris for that too. When I watched an episode of her reality show, I was somehow sure it’s not really her. She knows how to sell, she knows she’s a brand, and she knows business.

I like her face. Did you see her photo with Jinkee? Now we know sino peg ni Jinkee sa nose niya. Super identitical.

I love Paris! So jealous you got to see her in person. Isn’t she like a Barbie doll? Too bad you got hungry though 🙁
