My tier cakes bottom tier especially starts sagging once the other tiers are added, although I ganache my cakes, I use white chocolate ganache, one part heavy cream to three parts white chocolate still, maybe I should use the upside down technique to stop sagging, what must I do, I have tier cake due tomorrow :S

not enough support
This is the first hit I got from Google for a seller in Pakistan (?) http://magiclamp.pk/productView.php?ASIN=B005ZA0X66&cat1=1063498&cat2=&cat3=&cat4=&cat5=
Did you try to find dowels etc using google?
This ebay seller also came up on a google search and ships worldwide: http://www.ebay.com/itm/35-LARGE-EXTRA-LONG-WIDE-BOBA-BUBBLE-TEA-TAPIOCA-STRAWS-9-X-1-2-NEW-/150841568899
I doubt the ganache is your problem. Ganache isn't going to take the place of solid internal supports and it isn't magically going to support the weight of other tiers.
OMG thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo girl! Look what I did, I got heavy duty sticking glue and glued the wooden skewer to the board, now I will add drinking straws inside each tier and stack, this link that you have posted is definitely gonna work. I'll order some right away.
Thank you soooo much, will send the final shot and let you know.
You Rock! :D :D :D
