(a) One afternoon, Mei was waiting for her mother to get home. She was very hungry so she made some sandwiches. [full stop, not comma] First, ["Firstly" is not actually wrong, but it seems a bit stiff here] she open [wrong verb form; you should be able to fix this] a tin of tuna.

(b) After that, she sliced a cucumber and an onion. Then, she put all the ingredients into a bowl and mixed them well.

(c) Finally, she spread the filling on piece of bread. She saved some sandwiches for her mother and finished up the rest.

Very good. I definitely think your English is improving, Vincent. All your painstaking work must be paying off! Again, I suggest that you don't split a continuous story into separately numbered questions.

Thanks, but your comments are too general. I can't get what you mean, sorry!!
Hi,

First, she sliced the cucumber and onion with a sharp knife. Then, she put the ingredients and tuna in /into a bowl. After that, she mixed them well. The phrase 'the ingredients' includes the tuna. You could say 'these ingredients', to refer to the cucumber and onion that you have already metioned,

ie these ingredients and the tuna.

Later, she spread the mixture on a slice of bread with filling. 'The mixture' and 'the filling' mean the same thing here.
