Udomsuk is Sukhumvit 103, and has its own BTS station. It's also very close to where I live. Changing the subject for a moment: there is a pub/restaurant in Udomsuk called Wooodchips (there are supposed to be three o's) that sells rather good Thai-brewed beer.

Getting back to the OP's question, am I right in thinking once you open a keg, you've got to drink all the contents within a couple of days or so or it will go off? That would make bottles a better choice for me. Also, how do you keep a keg of beer at the right temperature?

Well no, you dont have to drink it that fast (though i have on occasion, done just that ). Properly carbed beer with co2 hooked up to keep serving pressure, will last a good long while. I keep my kegs in a temp controlled fridge.

I have 10 liter keg and mini co2 tank in my hand but never try force carbonation by co2 tank.
Just not enough space to put those things together in the same fridge, so far still happy with bottle condition taste, will try keg when the space is expanded.
