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.
