Question: Can I have an example on how to write a vso sentence or to have a link on vso sentences. The website only has describing sentences.
Halimbawa?: Natulog si Mark sa higaan.

The question is a little broad...is there something is specific you're having trouble with?
 
For actor focused verbs, you have things like:
Kumain siya ng manok. = He ate some chicken.
Uminom ako ng tubig. = I drank some water.
Nagluto sila ng gulay. = They cooked some vegetables.
 
Halimbawa?: Natulog si Mark ng higaan.
 
This should be:
Natulog si Mark sa higaan.
..."sa" is kind of a catch-all preposition in Tagalog that covers a lot of the bases for the many English prepositions like to, in, at, with, by, toward, upon, onto, etc.

VSO/VOS is the usual pattern.
 
Kumain ng isda si Mark
Nahiga siya sa kama
Nagmaneho sila sa EDSA
Naliligo siya sa kubeta
Naglalakad ako sa bangketa
