    The light and reach of greatness can never be hidden or suppressed.

    Dear Chipsticks,

    I am one of the guy that is lucky enough to shake obama’s hand in University of Indonesia, he was so charismatic. Unfortunately, none of my friends actually brave enough to take the pic!! and looking at your last pic on this page, i am only about five people away to the left of the lady in white. I am wearing a red batik and if you happen to immortalized one of the most important ‘shake hand’ of my life in your photo collection, i vow to be your relative forever, if you can send me the picture to my email tazolover@yahoo.com or let me know how i can get in touch with you. thank you so much.

      Hi Tazolover,

      Lovely to hear from you! I’m so happy for you that you were at the event at the Univ of Indonesia and that you got to shake the President’s hand. I’ve been looking through the photos to see if I can find one that might be you, but I can’t see another one with the lady in white, so I’m having trouble picking you out in your red batik!

      Have a look at these photos – here, here and here – from the event and let me know if you can spot yourself – if you can then I will try to find some more.

      Good luck Tazolover!

        hi chipsticks,

        i got goosebumps just looking at your reply..(there is HOPE!!) After looking at the pictures you gave i spot only one of me in it : http://www.daylife.com/photo/00gL5ke7Q10Th?q=obama+University+of+Indonesia+Jakarta+10
        i am the guy on the far left with a camera covering my face. people sometimes mistaken me with my fried on the far right, which unfortunately that day also wearing a red batik. So please let me know if you have anything with me in it, especially when shaking mr. president’s godly hand. 🙂

        thank you so much

          Hi Tazolover,

          I’m so sorry, I didn’t see your reply until tonight.

          Unfortunately, after searching through the photos, I just can’t see one that shows you clearly or shows you with the President.

          I think this is another one with your friend –

          – but that’s the closest I’ve found.

          Have you tried looking through the websites of the Indonesian newspapers, just to see if they have different photos to the agencies (eg Getty, Reuters, etc)?

          Or maybe if you contact Getty and ask their photographer at the event (Jim Watson) if he has more photos that weren’t published?

          I truly hope you find one, I know how much it means to you. Please let me know how you get on.

          Thanks Tazo.
