If your local Eslite doesn't have such a booklet, and they can't order
one, you might want to try asking around at small print shops. They're
actually fairly substantial and are along the same lines as the
Pantone book that you found. However, if you're at a print shop
anyway, you can just ask to see their sample book, which should show
the stocks and inks and treatments that they have available.

Colour printing in Asia is significantly cheaper than elsewhere in the
world. You may find it easier to just request a proof before you
commit to a larger order. Or, failing that, compile a swatch card
composed of all the colours that are in your document and ask them to
print that. Between process (cmyk) or Pantone, just remember that
Pantone colours are much more expensive, but they do offer a wide
range of possible colours.
