    Wink Kindly Check My Grammar....thanks!

    I'M ABOUT TO SEND THIS LETTER TO MY AUNT. I WROTE IT IN ENGLISH BECAUSE I'M TRYING TO PRACTICE WRITING IN THIS LANGUAGE. PLEASE HELP ME. KINDLY CHECK MY GRAMMAR. HERE'S THE MESSAGE:
    Hello Aunty,
    How are you now?!!
    It's been a long time since I've seen you online ...well ....I guess you are fully occupied in your work...especially being a wife...! How's Uncle Tom? kindly give my regards to him. Congrats to both of you!!!
    By the way, Grandpa called up yesterday, They were having a hard time because of the failure of an electrical supply in our province. They were experiencing total blackout. I think it's an aftereffect of last month's typhoon........ that storm wreaked vast destruction in our place. Even our house near the rice field was also ruined! They build a small nipa hut for the care taker but it's for temporary use only. The cell sites were also affected that's why they have to use a metallic piece or the antenna to be able to receive phone signals, but the problem is.....the antenna that grandpa is using was also damaged....to cut the story short, grandpa is asking for a financial help, "if it's ok with you". According to him, he can't do anything with regards to the blackout & it's ok though they can't watch news etc.....but what really bothers him is....he can't contact us & we can't get in touch with them either because there's no signal in their place. He needs to fix the antenna & the house near the rice field .He'll be needing 15,000 but the sad fact is, he doesn't have enough money to pursue his plans.
    It would be possible to call his mobile phone whenever he's in a high places with signals like in the rice field, but he seldom go there now.... if you want, you may just reply to this email and i'l just relay your message to him when he calls back....grandpa is waiting for your response. Thanks!
    Have a nice day Aunty!
    CHEERIO!!!

    Hello Mitang,

    Welcome

    Hope I am correct in correcting your mistakes.But make sure you check with the teachers again to confirm.Let me take a try

    Hello Aunty,

    How are you?It's been a long time since I've seen you online.Well,I guess you are fully occupied in your work especially being a new bride.How's Uncle Tom?Kindly convey my regards to him.Congrats to both of you!

    But the problem is,the antenna that grandpa is using was also damaged.To cut the story short,grandpa is asking for financial help from you,"if it's ok with you".He can't do anything because of the blackout.It's fine with him even he counldn't watch news but it bothers when he is unable to keep contact with us nor do we can with him as there's no signal in their place.He needs to fix the antenna and the house near the rice field.In order to do that he would be needing 15,000.But the sad fact is he dosen't have enough money to pursue his plans unless your help.

    It is possible to call his mobile phone when he's in high places,where signals are available,like in the rice fields.But he seldom goes there now.So,you may just reply to this e-mail and I'll just relay your message to him when he calls back.Grandpa is waiting for your response.Thanks.

    It's very good, Fazzu, but there are still a couple of errors:

    "Hello Aunty,
