I was actually ordained to the priesthood on the 18th of December 1990. Since it falls at a time when there are so many things happening during the Christmas season, the parish decided [with my consent] to celebrate it in January. In that way, more people are able to attend.
The Thanksgiving Mass was held at the Saviour of the World Chinese Church followed by a formal reception.
My mother was able to travel from the Philippines and my siblings together with their families were also able to attend.
