So Google has released their Trends for 2013.

A quick look at the Trends for Singapore shows some very interesting thing about Singaporeans:

“PSI Singapore” was the #1 trending search followed by Harlem Shake and Little India Riot. If you look further down you’ll find N96 mask (at #5). Obviously the Haze was a big issue for Singaporeans, as was the Riot, Annonymous (#4), and the Boston bombings (#10). But it’s good to know that Singaporeans were still shaking their bon bons and trying to check if “Deepavali 2013″ (#7) will get them a long weekend (sadly no). The Malaysian elections featured at #6 with Gwiyomi (#8). I don’t know who Gwiyomi is, so I had to google the term, and found out its some Korean song.

Talking about all things Korean, Google Trends has a whole coloumn entitled “Most Searched Korean Stars” for Singapore. Shows you how sucessful the Korean dramas are here.

Singaporeans love their computer fairs; “IT Show” (#2), “COMEX” (#4), “PC Show” (#5). “Singapore F1″ was the #1 search, showing just how much we’ve come to love (or hate) that epic event. Besides being a nation of desk jockeys we also have very sporty obessessions, namely tennis and marathons (playing tennis while you run the marathon sounds like a winning combo). Rounding out or obsession with computers and sports is our obsession with travelling (“NATAS Fair” at #9) and shopping (“Great Singapore Sale” at #10).

Moving on to Most Searched Local News, “Bird flu” was the #1 search. The rest were really topical matters including deaths (“Shane Todd” at #2 , “Huang Wenyong” #3 and “Kovan” at #4). Remember its not “Flood” (#6) but ponding. “Singapore haze” earned a spot at #7. “Khaw Boon Wan” (#5) and “Singapore property”(#8) highlight our obsession with buying property. While “Tey Tsun Hang” and “Singapore riot” round up the list at #9 and #10.

As for Most Searched Sports Teams, its football heavy with “Arsenal”, “Manchester United”, Liverpool” and “Chelsea” making the top 4, while “Tottenham Hotspur” coming in at #6 (Yay Spurs!). Everybody loves a winner and the “LionsXII” came in at #5.  Besides our obsession with English football, the top 10 most searched sports teams is rounded out by NBA teams “Houston Rockets”, “L.A. Lakers”, “Miami Heat” and “Dallas Mavericks” (in descending order).

Talking about our love for travelling, it seems Singaporeans like to visit nearby countries and places a lot. The #1 Most Searched Travel Destination was “Legoland Malaysia”. This was followed by “Bali”, “Hong Kong”, “Maldives”, “Bangkok”, “Taiwan”, “Bintan”, “Langkawi”, “Krabi” and “Penang”. Obviously we love taking short trips over long ones. I guess more holidays in a year.

There are many categories, but the one I want to highlight is the Trending Recipes. Eating is an obsession here, and it is interesting to note the eclectic recipes being searched from “Shepherd’s Pie” (#1) to “Kueh Bangkit” (#2) to “Leche Flan” (#9).

Well if you want to check out the day by day Trends, please feel free to do so.
