Living in Chiayi

I’ve always liked Turkey coffee.

Yes.

[quote]In an indication of the growing diversity of export opportunities in Taiwan, Rainbow Valley Turkeys from St Arnaud near Horsham Victoria have secured an important deal selling premium turkey eggs to a grower in the south-western Taiwanese city of Jiayi.

The eggs are then hatched and the turkeys bred for their succulent flesh, before arriving at dining tables in the form of signature Taiwanese dishes such as the local delicacy Jiayi ‘Turkey Meat Rice’.[/quote]

Apparently most of the Turkey rice is actually chicken. I have to say, I’m surprisingly blasé about it if it’s true. But it doesn’t really look like Chicken…

I had no idea about the palace museum. That’s awesome.

If you like Taiwanese literature, Jiayi is the hometown of Lai He, the father of modern Taiwanese literature. Lots of little stories and places can be traced through his works, which is pretty cool.

There is a great golf course there that no one ever plays at. No waits, no stares from the peanut gallery, just you, your pals and your cooler full of beer.

Are you talking about the one in Fanlu township called (something) Palms? We passed by it and I was told former president LTH used to golf there. Said to be a Robert Trent Jones course. Membership well out of reach for honest working folks.

No one plays there because no one can afford it.

Yes.

There is a 嘉南火雞養殖場. And 嘉南 = Jiayi + Tainan.

So you believe that all turkey rice is actually turkey and rice. Right.

There is a pretty active foreign community (check out the Chiayi Planet Yahoo Groups here: groups.yahoo.com/group/TheChiayiPlanet/

Is living in Chiayi still nice in 2020?
