Ron has a nicely tanned complexion and he laughs that when he was young, he and his elder sister were mistaken as Indians. Asked if he was unhappy about this, he said: "I was not unhappy, I have some Indian friends and they are handsome men and pretty girls. (Do you hope to find an Indian girlfriend?) I would like that!"

Ron indicates that he has learned some basic Thai from the event and when it was mentioned that the Thai pronunciation sounds like Chinese expletives, he says: "I will have to hear more before I speak it, that will make it more accurate." Ron also reveals that as he has to repay the gods, he goes to Thailand once a year. Asked what he is praying for, he says he prays for his career and his health. Asked if he would also like his gossip to go away, he says: "This is all part of the job."
