Unhappy Help, milk damage in my air!

I just spilted my breakfast mocha milk on my air 13" which I just bought in Nov, last year this morning, and it shut down quickly...
Then I immediately dryed it up and dryed it with a fan for the whole morning,
but the power can't be turned on right now!
I think the milk definitely ran into the motherboard...

I bought my air in Taiwan(in Asia), and it's said that if I want to repair it in Taiwan, it'll probably cost 2 times of the original mac price...
I still have an applecare for 2 yrs, but water damage is not in the protection, right?

So what am I going to do now?
I've read some forum and it's said that I can take it to some countries which have apple store there(we Taiwan doesn't have it), maybe it can help me to replace one, for free or not in that much money. Is that true?

I'm still a college student and I can't afford toooooo much money for repairing my air. And I've only used it for just a yr! Buying a new one is absolutely not on my list...

Can anyone give me the answer?
I don't know what to do now, so sad about it...
