Paris Hilton opens handbag store in Manila

Paris Hilton has opened a new handbag store in a mall in the Philippines capital of Manila.

Hundreds of fans, local celebrities and journalists crowded the mall Thursday to get a glimpse of the heiress, cameras ready.

When Hilton told the crowd, "I love you" in the local Tagalog language, wild cheers erupted. Hilton said she will miss Manila and plans to be back soon to open a resort hotel.

She signed bags bought from the Paris Hilton Handbags and Accessories store and posed for photos with fans before catching a flight to Los Angeles.

A male fan who brought a portrait he made of Hilton got a kiss, much to his thrill.
