Google is undoubtedly one of the best things ever invented as it houses all the answers to our daily questions.

The search engine had its very own “Spotify Wrapped” moment recently and they pushed out the “Year in Search 2022“. In a press statement, they said,

“Year in Search is meant to reflect the topics and moments that truly represent a given year.”

Results for 9 categories were posted and the results were not exactly surprising – given our love-hate relationship with politics. Without further ado, let’s dive in.


Top searches

1) Bantuan Khas Malaysia (BKM)
2) MySPR Semak
3) World Cup 2022
4) Keputusan PRU-15
5) MyUndi
6) Wordle
7) Peranti Siswa
8) Anwar Ibrahim
9) Queen Elizabeth
10) Mental Age Test

What can we say, we love it when the government gives us money and our general elections are always a big deal whenever they come around. The most surprising thing on this list is probably Wordle as we thought that it was only a fad, but who knew that it actually got this big?

Topical news

1) Ukraine
2) Peninsular Malaysia floods
3) Perdana Menteri Malaysia
4) Hand Foot Mouth Disease (HFMD)
5) Influenza
6) Monkeypox
7) ePemula
8) Bantuan Khas COVID-19 (BKC)
9) Omicron symptoms
10) PRN Johor

This list gives us the idea that Malaysians may be getting more health-conscious due to the pandemic and as usual, we have politics in the mix here.


In our memories

1) Queen Elizabeth
2) Adibah Noor
3) TangMo
4) Syazlin Zainal
5) Shinzo Abe
6) Aaron Carter
7) Samy Vellu
8) Kim Mi-soo
9) Technoblade
10) Betty White

These are some of the deaths that happened this year which shook our nation with the first one being Queen Elizabeth followed by well-loved local actress Adibah Noor.



1) Mat Kilau
2) KKN di Desa Penari
3) Black Adam
4) Top Gun
5) Jurassic World
6) Doctor Strange
7) Thor: Love and Thunder
8) Emergency Declaration
9) Vikram
10) The Batman

Local production Mat Kilau tops the list and it is not all that surprising as it was well-received by a majority of Malaysians. Big films such as Doctor Strange and Thor ranked lower on the same list.


International personalities

1) Amber Heard
2) Johnny Depp
3) Will Smith
4) Kajol
5) Chris Rock
6) Rishi Sunak
7) Andrew Tate
8) Simon Leviev
9) Adam Levine
10) Casemiro

The high-profile, messy court case of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce made the two parties the top of the list and it is not all that surprising as the drama surrounding it was juicy.

Local personalities

1) Anwar Ibrahim
2) Zalina Azman
3) Najib Razak

5) Azam Baki
6) Nik Adam Mika
7) Anna Jobling
8) Ustaz Fathi Na’im
9) Muhyiddin Yassin
10) Yasin Sulaiman

It seems that being a politician in Malaysia is equal to being a celebrity as almost half of this list are names of politicians.

TV series

1) All of Us Are Dead
2) Melur Untuk Firdaus

7) Extraordinary Attorney Woo
8) Bisik-Bisik Gelora
9) Snowdrop
10) Alchemy of Souls

Along with local series, many Malaysians love to watch K-dramas. It is evident that the Hallyu wave is very successful in our country.



Many great sporting events took place this year and based on this list, many Malaysians like to keep track of the badminton tournaments. This may be due to the success of our athletes in the sport.

1) World Cup 2022
2) Thomas Cup 2022
3) Denmark Open 2022
4) Liga Super
5) Indian Premier League 2022

Why are we not surprised that half of it is malls?
