Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  opheldelmundo: I feel queasy with the literal, "mga bloke sa pagtatayo." Ditto with "silyar." Denotatively, "bldg blocks" refer to materials used for foundation. But this phrase is FIG. in context, that it should be translated simply as "salalayan"or "pundasyon(Sp.)."
