The only Orthodox church in Taiwan is Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, in Xindian. Its priest is Fr. Jonah, a heiromonk of Mt. Athos. I believe they have a group in Taizhong (with a reader, but no priest, unless Fr. Jonah visits) but not Tainan. Anyway, check with them:

Here is how I introduced [Buddhism to] my grandmother when she saw a chenrezig pendant hanging in my car:

Grandmother: Is that Buddha? Are you some kine of Buddhist? (in a sarcastic aggressive tone)
Me: No, it's a Chinese Jesus. (anything with Asian flair to her was chinese)
Grandmother: (tone now changed to happy and excited) Really? I did'nt know chinese had jesus?

Here's another Orthodox Church in Taipei that opened recently. They have services in Chinese, Russian, and English.

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.

Location: Down the road from Da-an Park, in the middle of a crowded market that kinda smells like fish.
