i could not ssh into my machine - the ssh process does not seem to be trying the right key (i could be wrong). By the way, this was after a reboot.

The keypair that is typically used is:

/Users/mingyeow/.ssh/id_rsa-gsg-keypair

Try :

ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa-gsg-keypair user@...amazonaws.com

If that works, then stick something like the following in your ~/.ssh/config

Host *amazonaws.com
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa-gsg-keypair
