How can I obtain the Hana to Yume magazine?

There have been no suitable raws for Skip Beat suitable for me to use. So, I'm currently considering the idea to do my own scanning. But in order to do so, I need to find a way to obtain the Hana to Yume magazine.

The scanners have found a way to obtain this manga 2 days before the official stated release. (For example, if the previous issue says the next issue is released on the 5th, they would have gotten it by the 3rd.) I need to be able to do the same. I just haven't figured out how.

Does anyone know of a place in Singapore where you can get it? I tried the local manga stores, they don't ship from Japan. I haven't tried Kinokuniya stores yet, but I doubt they can get the manga 2 days before the official release even if they did ship it.

I need to find a way to procure a copy of this every 2 days before its respective release. Does anyone have any ideas how I may be able to do this?

In addition, here's another question. Do you guys want me to continue with this? Unrelatedwaffle released her translation a mere half day later than mine. I'm not that much faster. And without suitable raws to use, I have no scanlations to offer. I can only give the translated script at the most, and it's not as if mine is the only one out there.
