comment Expressing a sequence of actions using 〜たとき?
See if as two states (not tense), accomplished and non-accomplished. AーたB is when A is done, then B. You can even use it speaking of the future. 50歳になった時にヨーロッパいく。 = I'll go to Europe once I turned 50.

comment Usage of ~まんねん (関西弁)

comment When should the polite form of 〜たり be used?
Sorry I misread it. I have never heard it with a masu-form verb and I don't think there is cases where it should be used.

comment When should the polite form of 〜たり be used?
used very often? Where do you hear it often? And probably like the masu-form before ので not being grammatically correct. Places where it is common to over-praise interlocutor (ex: 大丸), over keigo is usually used.
