Can I say occasion instead of time? For example:

I remember the occasion when my kitten broke the vase. I was upset because that vase cost me a lot!

Or should I only say:

I remember the time when my kitten broke the vase. I was upset because that vase cost me a lot!

    To my ear, the occasion when, although it is grammatical, sounds a little old-fashioned.

Both of them are acceptable, because 'occasion' and 'time' are synonymous in this context.
