If you lived in Taipei, you could buy it whenever you wanted from a few select stores. You'd have to write them a blank check, of course, but you *could* buy it. To be honest, seems to me, I bought turkey for things like Thanksgiving and Xmas as well as other "exotic" meats for holidays (lamb, veal) from certain butchers who catered to the expat crowd and those Chinese who liked exotica (also good places to pick up real heavy cream for homemade eggnog and other holiday noshibles). They weren't giving it away, but it was economically feasible if you didn't do it *every* week. Don't know about the situation in Kaohsiung. Kou
