A power substation of CLP Power in Lok Fu is still named as "Lo Fu Ngam" nowadays.

Lok Fu (Chinese: 樂富) is a place in Wong Tai Sin District, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is located to the east of Kowloon Tsai, the west of Wong Tai Sin and the north of Kowloon City. It geographically includes nearby Wang Tau Hom.

It was previously named Lo Fu Ngam (Chinese: 老虎岩, literally "Tiger's Den" in Chinese). After the construction of the public housing estate started in 1957 with the first resettlement blocks being built, Lo Fu Ngam was renamed as Lok Fu which literally means "Happiness and Wealth" in Chinese.[1][2][3]
