First and foremost, height is not something you'll have much control over. It basically boils down to genetics. Which brings me to my next point that you are very short so putting on a lot of a weight isn't going to be easy. However, 35kg is very light and at your height, your ideal body weight should be around 50 kg (range 43 to 58 kg).

As Dave has pointed out, there are several other well answered questions on how to gain size/weight such as an answer from Dave Liepmann himself. If you would like to attempt to source more information from the internet, the process is typically referred to in the body-building community as 'bulking' so a simple google search of this will return a more detailed plethora of information.
