Transit in SIN: How does it work?

Hello there!
I had one of my great Mile-Burning-Ideas and therefore i'll be flying MUC-AUH-SIN - AUH; AUH-MUC in March with EY.
The flights are all on the same etkt-nr. but were booked as a multistop flight MUC-SIN, SIN-AUH, AUH-MUC.

MUC-SIN and SIN-AUH will be on the same day, so i'll be arriving in SIN at 10 am and will be leaving with the same plane at 7pm. The question is now: do i have to clear immigration or can i simply go to the transfer desk?

The airport's website says: "To be able to transfer flights without clearing immigration, you would have to have purchased transfer facilities as part of your flights. Most connecting flights purchased together would already have transfer facilities included. Do check with your purchasing agent if you are unsure."
That means to me, that i have to clear immigration. Is this correct? Or can i use the transfer desk and stay airside? I don't want to clear immigration because i planned to go to the airside hotel and take a good nap till my flight leaves.

I hope someone can help.

Yes you can stay airside. EY uses T2.
If you look at the Changi Airport website, you can see the extensive facilities that are airside.
When you get off your flight just follow the signs for Transfers and Transit Hotel.
When you wake up, just go to the transit centre closest to your departure gate.

Singapore is one of the easiest airports in the world for transit. You exit the plane directly into the departures hall, and have
immediate access to all airside facilities. If you already have your departing BP, you are free to do whatever you wish.
If not, go to one of the transit desks first.

Thank you both! That's the information i needed. Because i already had contact to Changi Airport's support staff via Facebook and they told me this would be impossible, because there will be no Etihad staff at the transfer desk and whatsoever. And i could not believe that.
