Accessing an ATM machine

Zidong tikuanji (dzuh doong tee kwan jee; ATM machines) are truly ubiquitous these days. In order to use one, you need a zidong tikuan ka (dzuh doong tee kwan kah; ATM card) to find out your jieyii (jyeh yew; account balance), to ciin qian (tswun chyan; deposit money), or to qii qian (chyew chyan; withdraw money). And you definitely need to know your mima (mee mah; PIN number); otherwise, the zidong tikuanji is useless.

And one more thing: Make sure you don't let anyone else know your mima. It's your mimi (mee mee; secret).
